Critical Knowledge Gaps in the Martian Geological Record: A Rationale for Regional-Scale in Situ Exploration by Rotorcraft Mid-Air Deployment
Bulletin of the American Astronomical Society
Mars oldest terrains hold the answers to key science questions, yet remain largely unexplored. In situ exploration by mid-air deployed rotorcrafts can uniquely answer these questions in the near future due to their unique ability to access the ancient southern highlands and perform in situ analyses at regional-scale, at breakthrough costs.
