Dear Planetary Science Colleagues,
We invite you to submit abstracts on concepts for missions and instruments for planetary exploration — all solar system targets and exploration architectures welcome — for #AGU21:
AGU Session #P007. Concepts for Future Planetary Science Missions
Planetary science missions of all sizes and types have been increasing in cadence in the last decade, visiting planets, moons, asteroids and comets from the inner to the outer solar system. Future mission architectures are expanding the range of possible sizes, from tiny CubeSat-based spacecraft to large, multi-stage systems such as Mars Sample Return and Europa Lander. New technologies are enabling missions to literally take off, as with the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter and the Dragonfly Titan rotorcraft. In this session, we solicit e-lightening poster presentations focusing on innovative ideas for future planetary missions and related instruments, with a focus on the science enabled.
The abstract submission deadline is August 4, 2021, at 23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT.
This is always a fun and dynamic session, and we look forward to showcasing your latest concepts at the Fall AGU meeting.
