The Saturn Ring Skimmer Mission Concept: The next step to explore Saturn’s rings, atmosphere, interior and inner magnetosphere

The Saturn Ring Skimmer would reveal how the rings, magnetosphere, atmosphere, and interior of the planet operate as an inter-connected system. It would also address fundamental questions about giant planets and astrophysical disks. We advocate that this mission concept be studied as a potential option for the New Frontiers program.
