At the request of the Satellites Panel of the National Research Council (NRC) Planetary Science Decadal Survey, a Rapid Mission Architecture (RMA) study of possible missions to Saturn's moon Enceladus was conducted at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in January and February of 2010. This was one of many studies commissioned by this NRC Decadal Survey. In this study, 15 Enceladus mission architectures were examined that spanned a broad range of potential science return and total estimated mission… Expand
