Sampling Ocean Materials, Traces of Life or Biosignatures in Plume Deposits on Enceladus’ Surface

Plume deposit regions on the surface of Enceladus likely reflect and preserve the composition of the internal ocean and could contain potential traces of life and biosignatures. The novel Dual-Rasp sampling system is designed to acquire large amounts of plume deposits on the surface of Enceladus. It is under development to achieve TRL 5 in 2021.
