NASA Will Explore
Other Worlds Using Drones The space agency announced
its plans to explore the Saturn
moon Titan using a life-hunting
rotorcraft called Dragonfly. The craft is intended to
land on Titan by 2034 and
spend years gathering data
and photos of the frozen moon. NASA will also send a
helicopter drone to Mars
during the 2020 rover mission. Håvard Grip, NASA, via Space.com The helicopter scout is a
small craft that weighs about 4 lbs
and carries no scientific equipment. The Dragonfly craft is larger,
spanning 10 feet, carries a suite
of scientific equipment and
a $1 billion price tag. If the crafts perform well,
NASA anticipates using such
drones extensively in the future.
