Scientists Eye 'Space Boat' to Explore Saturn's Moon, Titan

Scientists Eye 'Space Boat' to Explore Saturn's Moon, Titan | News & Opinion | PCMag.com: "NASA's Curiosity rover landed successfully on Mars in August, but to reach Saturn's largest moon, Titan, scientists are going to need a bigger boat — literally.
As reported by Space.com, a group of Spanish researchers have proposed a mission to Titan that would explore the moon's bodies of water via a special space boat.
A floating probe known as the Titan Lake In-situ Sampling Propelled Explorer (TALISE) would land in and explore Titan's largest lake, known as Ligeia Mare, for up to a year.
TALISE is a joint effort between engineering firm SENER and the Centro de AstrobiologĂ­a in Madrid, Spain. According to Space.com, details about the project are still being worked out, but the proposal was presented last month at the European Planetary Science Congress in Madrid."
