This week on Looking Skyward:  NASA is sending a drone-like spacecraft to explore the icy surface of Titan, the largest moon of Saturn; Scientists identify the “chemical fingerprint” of a planet outside our solar system; and tracking fast radio bursts - in one millisecond, they generate as much energy as the sun emits in 80 years!

You can hear Looking Skyward with Brian Morris and Dr. Regina Jorgensen every other Thursday on All Things Considered.
