NASA said the nuclear-powered Dragonfly mission to Saturn’s moon Titan has been delayed until 2028

NASA has set a tentative launch date of July 2028 for the Dragonfly mission, which aims to explore Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, citing budget uncertainty as a reason for delaying the project by one year.

The Dragonfly team can now move forward with the next stage of development — Phase C — of a nuclear-powered, car-sized drone that will fly over and land on the sands of Titan, a world that planetary scientists believe is rich in organic molecules. .
