... Each column of the table provides examples of different types of endeavors that can be achieved for a specific choice of implementation options (information extraction; orbital measurements; sample return; landed experiments, instruments, and rovers; and human fieldwork, or human-tended surface experiments)

... provides examples of the type of materials that would specifically benefit the different science concepts through sample return and analyses in Earth-based laboratories. Analytical capabilities improve with each technology advancement, continually expanding the value of the sample-return investment.
From page 51...
... As we embark on this new era of detailed lunar exploration, several other nations have expressed a serious intent to participate with additional orbital spacecraft sent to the Moon in the near future: Russia, Germany, Italy, and perhaps Great Britain and Ukraine. After the initial orbital missions of Japan, China, and India, the intended next steps by these nations have been publicly stated to be landed in situ experiments or sample return.
