Thermal Protection System Materials for Sample Return Missions

This white paper from the Thermal Protection System (TPS) community provides an overview of TPS materials needed for future Sample Return (SR) missions. We consider the capability of heritage TPS and identify appropriate TPS for future SR missions. We also recommend investments to maintain and expand NASA’s SR capabilities for the coming decade.
