Rodriguez S, Vinatier S, Cordier D, et al., Science goals and mission concepts for a future orbital and in situ exploration of Titan
In this white paper, we present a cross-section of important scientificquestions that remain partially or completely unanswered, ranging from Titanexosphere to the deep interior, and we detail which instrumentation and missionscenarios should be used to answer them. Our intention is to formulate thescience goals for the next generation of planetary missions to Titan in orderto prepare the future exploration of the moon. The ESA L-class mission conceptthat we propose is composed of a Titan orbiter and at least an in situ element(lake lander and/or drone(s)).
Rymer A, Mandt K, Hurley D, et al., Solar System Ice Giants: Exoplanets in our Backyard
Future remote sensing of exoplanets will be enhanced by a thoroughinvestigation of our solar system Ice Giants (Neptune-size planets). What canthe configuration of the magnetic field tell us (remotely) about the interior,and what implications does that field have for the structure of themagnetosphere; energy input into the atmosphere, and surface geophysics (forexample surface weathering of satellites that might harbour sub-surfaceoceans). How can monitoring of auroral emission help inform future remoteobservations of emission from exoplanets? Our Solar System provides the onlylaboratory in which we can perform in-situ experiments to understand exoplanetformation, dynamos, systems and magnetospheres.
