NASA to Explore Saturn's Moon Titan

  •  The US space agency NASA announced that it would launch a spacecraft in 2026 to explore the richly organic world of Titan, an analogue to the very early Earth.
  • A rotorcraft called "Dragonfly" would arrive at the Saturn`s moon in 2034, looking for prebiotic chemical processes common on both Titan and Earth, which may lend clues to how life may have arisen on Earth.

NASA astronauts, Space Station Crew Mates Return to Earth

  •  NASA astronaut Anne McClain, veteran cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko of Roscosmos, and Canadian Space Agency record-holder David Saint-Jacques emerged from the space craft to applause from support crews, after touching down near the Kazakh city of Dzhezkazgan.
  • The trio's launch on December 3, 2018 was the first after a Soyuz rocket carrying Russia's Aleksey Ovchinin and US astronaut Nick Hague failed in October (2018) just minutes after blast-off, forcing the pair to make an emergency landing.

  • The mission, dubbed Space Test Program 2 (STP-2), is the third for the Falcon Heavy rocket, which SpaceX describes as the most powerful launch system in the world.
  • The company put satellites into orbit for agencies including NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), defense department laboratories, universities and a non-profit organisation.

First Song Recorded from Rare Whale

  •  For the first time, scientists have recorded singing by one of the rarest whales on Earth, and it just might be looking for a date.
  • The crooning comes from a possibly lovelorn North Pacific right whale and its song was documented by researchers in the Bering Sea off Alaska's coast.
  • The song may not be a greatest hit, but is classified by marine biologists as an underwater call using a distinct pattern of sounds.
  • And it is the scientists' best guess that this serenade of the seas is a mating call from a lonely aquatic mammal.
