MarcoPolo-R:Astrobiological and cosmochemical implications of MarcoPolo-R sampling of a primitive asteroid[Wed, 16 Jan 2013]

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.
