From page 97...
... Destination-specific expertise also allowed the panels to efficiently identify additional mission studies, beyond those already available, early in the process as required for study completion prior to committee prioritizations. The committee structure was comprised of a steering group and six destination-oriented panels that addressed Mercury and Moon, Venus, Mars, Small Bodies, Giant Planet Systems, and ocean worlds and dwarf planets.
From page 98...
... Each of what the committee henceforth defines as the 12 priority science questions is comprised of a single overarching topic, as well as a one-to-two sentence description of the question's scope. The 12 priority questions provide the organizational structure around which the scientific portions of the report are organized.
From page 99...
... When considering activities, such as future missions, the committee evaluated their potential for addressing the priority science questions and sub-questions identified in these chapters, providing direct traceability between recommended activities and science goals (see Table 22.4)
From page 100...
... Q10. Dynamic Habitability: Where in the solar system do potentially habitable environments exist, what processes led to their formation, and how do planetary environments and habitable conditions co-evolve over time?
