Dragonfly On Titan

1200px-NASA_Dragonfly_mission_to_Titan.jpg

University of Idaho physics professor Jason Barnes would like to go to the Saturnian moon, Titan. Not him, personally, rather he'd like to send a giant drone-like rotorcraft to the moon to gather data.

Barnes is on the team developing one of two drone programs for consideration for a NASA mission to Titan; he spoke with Idaho Matters about his role in exploring the distant moon and the importance of space exploration.
