Why We Should Study the Themis Asteroid Family in the 2023-2032 Decade

In this white paper, we identify key questions in planetary science, earth science, and astrobiology, that would be addressed by further study of the interior evolution of icy asteroids such as 24 Themis. We present possible measurements and potential future research, including spacecraft missions, focused on the Themis family in the next decade.
