Sailing the Seas of Titan

Big Think features an article about how a submarine would be able to explore the hydrocarbon seas of Saturn's moon Titan. It sounds very cool, with the only problem being that such a mission might not get off the ground until 2040. Actuarily speaking, that's a date with a significant chance of not being seen by your humble correspondent, who would very much like to see a mission in which a spacecraft flies a submarine to another planet's moon.

If NASA or another agency does manage to develop this mission, I would suggest the best possible name for the submarine portion of the craft is "Sebastian."
