the Solar System: Exploration and Discovery—A Mission and Technology Roadmap.11 These questions involve studies spanning a broad range of scientific disciplines (i.e., the geosciences, atmospheric sciences, and exobiology), and, as Chapter 2 indicates, can be best addressed by a broad range of mobility techniques, including the use of traditional devices such as balloons and rovers (which understandably dominate the discussion since these technologies are the best developed), as well as by devices less familiar to planetary scientists, such as aircraft and cryobots.
