... Appendix E Panel Missions Not Selected for Additional Study INTRODUCTION As described in Appendix C, each of the survey's six panels reviewed the SDT and PMCS reports and assessed those concepts proposed by the community in white papers and prior proposals. Then the panels identified 18 additional large- and medium-class mission concepts that could address key scientific questions within their respective purviews.

... APPENDIX E 673 Implementation This concept was proposed as a potential medium-class mission to be implemented by five long-long landers and a supporting orbiter. The landers touch down in a preplanned array within 500 ± 200 km of one another.

... 674 ORIGINS, WORLDS, AND LIFE Nature of Study Requested The panel requested a full study (i.e., CML ~4–5) using the Venus Flagship as its starting point to investigate an alternative to concept emphasizing a focus on the current potential for life in the Venus clouds.

... APPENDIX E 675 as well as an arm-mounted X-ray and Mössbauer spectrometers, and a microscope. The arm would carry a rockpowder acquisition system.

... 676 ORIGINS, WORLDS, AND LIFE Implementation This concept was proposed as a medium-class Saturn orbiter in a low-inclination orbit (pericenter 90,000–130,000 km to avoid both the F and main rings)

... APPENDIX E 677 SOLAR SYSTEM SPACE TELESCOPE Origin and Goals This concept was proposed by a cross-panel group to promote new innovative science and to support and exploit discoveries made by past/current/future missions to specific targets. A space telescope dedicated to observations of solar system bodies would benefit the planetary science community by enabling capabilities beyond those of current astrophysics missions and provide more opportunities for high-priority solar system science studies.
