Extreme Environments Technologies for Future Space Science Missions - 11.41 MB PDF File

The Planetary Science Division of the Science Mission Directorate, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), supports a technology planning effort at JPL, whose goal is to identify the technologies needed for future missions. More specifically, it attempts to determine those technologies where a NASA investment can have the greatest impact on future missions. This report on technologies for extreme environments is the culmination of a multi-year study. Interim results from this effort have already been incorporated into NASA strategic planning through the 2006 Solar System Exploration Roadmap and the 2007 SMD Science Plan. This report is expected to support the formulation of a NASA technology program, specifically focused on extreme environment technologies, and to guide the selection of the technologies that comprise that program.
