Study the Worlds

Kirby Runyon, PhD student, planetary geology

November 19, 2012

I want Uranus and Neptune orbiters with missions similar to Galileo and Cassini at Jupiter and Saturn. There’s fascinating geology on those outer moons. I want a lander/boat on a Titan lake similar to the cancelled TiME. I want a sample return mission from the Moon so we can obtain radioisotope ages for various terrains and further constrain the timing of the Late Heavy Bombardment. I want a lander or rover on Europa as a precursor to a Europa drill and submarine. I want a lander on Io to study extreme volcanology and tidal tectonics.
