Titan Blimp
"An advanced blimp probe surveys polar lakes on Saturn's largest moon, Titan. Various blimps and balloons have been studied as ways of scrutinizing large areas of the Mercury-sized moon. In this version, a buoyant probe drops sampling canisters to examine Titan's organic-rich soils. Painting originally done for Astronomy magazine."
