An upcoming NASA mission to Saturn's giant moon Titan aims to discover the development of life in the universe, the US space agency said. The mission called Dragonfly is due to launch in 2027, and will reach Titan in 2034. Dragonfly carries an instrument called the Dragonfly Mass Spectrometer (DraMS), which will shed light on the kinds of chemical steps that occurred on Earth that ultimately led to the formation of life, called prebiotic chemistry.
