As a follow-up to last November’s VEXAG Meeting recommendations, an update to VEXAG’s Venus Exploration Goals, Objectives, and Investigations has been drafted. The primary difference between this draft and the prior version is a restructuring of the overall Goals. The prioritized objectives and investigations retain their strong link to priorities identified in the Decadal Survey. An accompanying document providing additional detail for each investigation is currently being drafted and will be available for comment during the November 2013 VEXAG meeting.
The new draft table of updated VEXAG’s Venus Exploration Goals, Objectives, and Investigations has been posted on the VEXAG website along with a form for submitting comments. Community comments (with a deadline of November 1, 2013) are being solicited at the VEXAG Web-Site Home Page: http://www.lpi.usra.edu/vexag/ or VEXAG’s Web-Site for Community Comments on the updated VEXAG’s Venus Exploration Goals, Objectives Table:
