According to Inverse, NASA is planning to send a submarine to Saturn’s moon Titan so as to explore the depths of its largest ocean.

According to Inverse NASA researchers proposed so send a submarine that would not only carry instruments to measure the chemical composition of the ocean but also the currents and tides and the structure of the ocean floor.
Explaining their reasons to send the submarine, NASA cryogenics engineer Jason Hartwig said:
“There are really two big reasons why we want to go to Titan; to determine if hydrocarbon-based life is possible on Titan and also, as (it’s) the only moon in our solar system with clouds and an atmosphere.”
Titan is said to be very similar to Earth except that its extremely cold and has oceans made of liquid methane.
Details about the mission are awaited as its still in its conceptual stages.
