NASA still doesn't have a way to get astronauts to outerspace but our national space agency will have a submarine to explore the extraterrestrial waters of Titan someday. Possibly.
This may sound patently ridiculous just now in the days when NASA is a chronically underfunded shell of its former self, but it's a pretty nifty idea.
The Titan submarine, if and when it is created, will plumb the depths of the Titian seas, specifically the Kraken Mare. (Yep, that's kraken as in "release the kraken!") The submarine will plumb the depths of the 720-mile long Kraken Mare and find out all kinds of interesting scientific-type stuff that we so far don't know about, not having been to Titan and all. The proposed mission will be focused on figuring out the hydrocarbon makeup of the Kraken Mare.More »
