Terrestrial Recovery of Extraterrestrial Materials: Providing Continued, Long-Term Sample Analysis Opportunities for Research and Mission Support

Terrestrially-recovered extraterrestrial materials — meteorites, micrometeorites, cosmic dust — act as ultra-low cost sample returns critical to enabling and providing context for small body and planetary missions. We advocate 1) expanding recovery efforts and 2) developing and maintaining high levels of sample curation and research capabilities.
