NASA recently requested that MEPAG evaluate the scientific objectives that could/should be carried out by a potential human mission to Mars that, for planning purposes, is assumed to launch in 2035. One of the key working conclusions is that sample-based science stands out as one of the more important aspects of a potential overall science package (recognizing that there would additionally be other scientific aspects of such a mission that would not be sample-based).
