From page 7...
... The principal objective of the study was to examine how robotic exploration missions sent to Mars could aid NASA in assessing the risks to astronauts posed by possible environmental, chemical, and biological agents on the planet. Of critical importance is whether it will be necessary to return Martian soil and/or air borne dust samples to Earth prior to the first human mission to Mars to assure astronaut health and safety.
From page 8...
... Johnson Space Center in Houston and from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena provided information on surface operations, space suits and equipment, detection of life on Mars, radiation health effects, lunar dust experience, Martian soil, and in situ instrumentation capability.

This material may be derived from roughly machine-read images, and so is provided only to facilitate research.
