AVIATR (Aerial Vehicle for In situ and Airborne Titan Reconnaissance) is a proposed NASA airplane mission to Titan, a moon of Saturn. The mission was proposed by a team of scientists led by University of Idaho's Dr. Jason W. Barnes.[1] Compared to Earth, Titan has about one-seventh the gravity but four times the density.[2] These conditions make it easier to fly there.[2]
