saturn’s moon aliens are just like us
Dragonfly will launch in 2026 and arrive in 2034.
The rotorcraft will fly to dozens of promising locations
on Titan looking for prebiotic chemical processes
common on both Titan and Earth.

dragonfly 2 earth: hey, so we think titan’s moon alien
just had a breakup, because we’ve touched down &
that subsurface layer of ammonia-rich liquid water
seems to swell under our feet, like sad boys trying
not 2 cry, eyes all showy & damp. we swear the alien
crawled out of a crater & now is slouching their way
thru shangri-la, plain of dark material named after a mystic
earthly paradise. do aliens hurt like ppl? somebody log that.
dragonfly 2 earth: we saw the alien disappear thru the orange
organonitrogen haze, only to reappear with heart-shaped
chocolates & a record player. saw them sit down in the space-
dust & start to eat w their 8 tooth-heavy mouths, all wide
open like they might b dangerous on their good days. this
job probably sucks. 9to5 40hr weeks sitting inside a sphere
of silence at the edge of the universe merits letting loose
w some ferrero rocher & dolly. where do you buy vinyls
on titan? somebody log that. update: we watched them crawl
back into the moon rock/ice/sad hrs & not to get all emo
but we’re starting 2 get a little misty-eyed ourselves, thought
in 2034 we’d b over ppl crying over other ppl/alien’s problems?
listen: y’all just go on ahead & turn our course back 2 earth.
