Critical knowledge gaps in the Martian geological record: A rationale for regional-scale in situ exploration by rotorcraft mid-air deployment

Mars oldest terrains hold the answers to key science questions, yet remain largely unexplored. In situ exploration by mid-air deployed rotorcrafts can uniquely answer these questions in the near future due to their unique ability to access the ancient southern highlands and perform in situ analyses at regional-scale, at breakthrough costs.
