Penetrators as a deployment tool for Mass Spectrometer instrumentation

Sheridan, Simon; Barber, Simeon; Morse, Andrew and Snodgrass, Colin (2018). Penetrators as a deployment tool for Mass Spectrometer instrumentation. In: European Planetary Science Congress 2018, 12.

Abstract

We discuss penetrator deployment systems and Mass Spectrometer (MS) based instrumentation that offer the potential for future characterization and understanding of the volatile content at the surface and near-surface of airless bodies in the Solar System. We review previous penetrator missions, systems and instrumentation, before considering future options to bodies such as the moon and small solar system bodies.
