NASA wants to send a submarine to Saturn's moon Titan
Washington (UPI) Feb 16, 2015
The seas of Titan, Saturn's largest moon, are no place for astronauts. The frigid bodies of liquified natural gas are a study in inhabitability. But scientists suggest its possible some strange forms of life exist under the of icy surface of Kraken Mare, Titan's largest sea. To learn more about this unique world - and to probe Titan's liquid environs for signs of life - engineers at NASA are planning to send a robotic submarine there in the future. Earlier this year, the space agency release ... read more
