It is arguably the most audacious maritime adventure ever undertaken – a mission worthy of James Cook or Christopher Columbus to unlock the secrets of unknown seas and faraway lands.

But what sets this mission apart from the great age of maritime exploration is that the hi-tech vessel must first travel 1.5bn kilometres before even embarking on its maritime voyage, and the waves pounding it will be on the vast methane oceans of Saturn’s moon Titan.

Can't wait to see this take place and the images brought back.
