Proposed space boat could explore lakes on Saturn’s moon Titan
Titan, the largest of the more than 60 natural satellites of Saturn, is covered in seas, lakes and rivers of methane, and hosts a thick atmosphere, making it one of the most Earth-like bodies in the solar system. Smaller than Earth but wider than Mercury, Titan is in many ways more like a planet than a moon.
While rovers are ideal for exploring Mars, a boat is best for Titan. Scientists are proposing a new mission to explore this alluring world that would send a floating probe to land in a lake on Titan.

A solar eclipse of Saturn captured by the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft.  This image was created by combining a total of 165 images taken by the Cassini wide-angle camera over nearly three hours on Sept. 15, 2006.  Earth can be seen on the left just above the brightest rings.
