We see quite regularly in the film Gattaca rockets launching and we know that the protagonist wanted more than anything to fly a rocket (which he does in the end), but was there actually a purpose for these rocket launches ever provided? Looking at the Wikipedia page on the film, I got the following quote:
the Gattaca Aerospace Corporation, the most prestigious spaceflight conglomerate, with a DNA test being the entire interview process. He becomes Gattaca's top celestial navigator and is selected for a manned spaceflight to Saturn's moon Titan.
Whilst this tells me where they were going, it doesn't explain why they were going there. Is this reason ever provided in the film, or are we to assume it is just for exploration?
