Whitepaper #049 submitted to the Planetary Science and Astrobiology Decadal Survey 2023-2032. Topics: other science themes: Interdisciplinary (multiple objects)
We advocate for the realization of volatile sample return from various destinations including: small bodies, the Moon, Mars, ocean worlds/satellites, and plumes. Returning planetary volatiles poses unique and potentially severe technical challenges. These include preventing changes to samples during the mission lifetime.
