NASA’s Dragonfly mission to Saturn’s moon Titan delayed by a year

NASA’s mission to send a drone to Saturn’s largest moon has been delayed by a year.

It means the launch to Titan won’t take place until 2027, with the Dragonfly drone arriving aboard a spacecraft eight years later in 2035.

In a message posted online over the weekend, NASA said the decision to delay the launch is “based on factors external to the Dragonfly project team, including COVID-19’s impact on the Planetary Science Division’s budget.”
