NASA announced the selection of two targets for future billion-dollar missions: Titan (Saturn’s largest moon) and the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The first mission - Dragonfly - will send a flying robot to explore sites on the surface of Titan, which features rivers and lakes filled with methane. The second mission – CAESAR – aims to capture and bring back to Earth a piece of the 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko comet. 

The missions are scheduled in 2034 for Dragonfly and 2038 for CAESAR. They are part of NASA’s New Frontiers program with a budget of over $900 million. Previous missions from this program are currently exploring Pluto, Jupiter and other objects from our solar system.
