Astrobiological and cosmochemical implications of MarcoPolo-R sampling of a primitive asteroid
Start date: 16 Jan 2013
Address: Institut d'Estudis Catalans (IEC), Barcelona, Spain
MarcoPolo-R is one of four candidate missions for a European Space Agency (ESA) medium-class mission, with a foreseen launch date in either 2022 or 2024. Scientific discussions, and results presented at this 4th MarcoPolo-R Symposium will greatly contribute to the preparation of the MarcoPolo-R final study report (called Yellow Book) before the final decision to be taken by ESA, at the end of 2013.
