    TandEM was proposed as an L-class (large) mission in response to ESA’s Cosmic Vision 2015–2025 Call, and accepted for further studies, with the goal of exploring Titan and Enceladus.

C.; Buczkowski, D. L.; Williams, D. A. (David Andrew), 1951-; Hiesinger, H. (Harald); Russell, C. T. (Christopher T.) (Nature, 2016-07-26)
    Asteroids provide fundamental clues to the formation and evolution of planetesimals. Collisional models based on the depletion of the primordial main belt of asteroids predict 10–15 craters 4400 km should have formed on ...

(John Robert), 1957-; McKinnon, William B.; Howard, Alan D.; White, Oliver L.; Umurhan, Orkan M., 1969-; Singer, Kelsi N; Stern, Alan, 1957-; Weaver, Harold A., 1953-; Young, Leslie A.; Smith, K. Ennico; Olkin, Cathy B.; New Horizons Geology and Geophysics Imaging Team (ISPRS, 2016)
    New Horizons 2015 flyby of the Pluto system has resulted in high-resolution topographic maps of Pluto and Charon, the most distant objects so mapped. DEM’s over ~30% of each object were produced at 100-300 m vertical and ...

(John Robert), 1957-; McKinnon, William B.; Howard, Alan D.; White, Oliver L.; Umurhan, Orkan M., 1969-; Schenk, Paul M.; Beyer, Ross, A.; Singer, Kelsi N.; Stern, Alan, 1957-; Weaver, Harold A., 1953-; Young, Leslie A.; Smith, K. Ennico; Olkin, Cathy B.; New Horizons Geology and Geophysics Imaging Team (ISPRS, 2016)
    Pluto and Charon exhibit strikingly different surface appearances, despite their similar densities and presumed bulk compositions. Systematic mapping has revealed that much of Pluto’s surface can be attributed to ...

    New Horizons images of Pluto’s companion Charon show a variety of terrains that display extensional tectonic features, with relief surprising for this relatively small world. These features suggest a global extensional ...
