Planetary Formation and Evolution Revealed with a Saturn Entry Probe: The Importance of Noble Gases
Panel Selection: Giant Planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and exoplanets, including rings and magnetic fields, but not their satellites.
Institution: University of California, Santa Cruz
The determination of Saturn's atmospheric noble gas abundances are critical to understanding the formation and evolution of Saturn, and giant planets in general. These measurements can only be performed with an entry probe.
