Johns Hopkins APL Unveils Radioisotope-Powered Drone for Possible NASA Titan Exploration

TYSONS CORNER, VA, Aug. 25, 2017 — Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory has introduced a conceptual radioisotope-powered autonomous dual-quadcopter as a possible platform to support a future NASA mission to explore Saturn’s largest moon, ExecutiveBiz reported Thursday.
