Dragonfly: In Situ Exploration of Saturn's Moon Titan, an Organic Ocean World (Exploring Space Lecture)

Dragonfly: In Situ Exploration of Saturn's Moon Titan, an Organic Ocean World (Exploring Space Lecture) Online

Speaker: Dr. Elizabeth "Zibi" Turtle, Planetary Scientist, Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory

Saturn's largest moon Titan is an ocean world with a dense atmosphere, abundant complex organic material on its icy surface, and a liquid-water ocean in its interior. The Cassini-Huygens mission revealed Titan to be super Earth-like. Dr. Turtle will discuss how the Dragonfly mission will land a rotocraft to perform long-range in situ investigation of this fascinating extraterrestrial environment.

The Exploring Space lectures are made possible by the generous support of Aerojet Rocketdyne and United Launch Alliance.
