Starek et al. Outside of four-wheeled rovers, a number of previous efforts dating to the early 1970’s have recognized the potential of two-wheeled rovers for steep terrains. Several efforts have converged on a robotic body morphology consisting of a simple axial body with two wheels and a caster, as recently exemplified by the Scout robots [121], designed for military applications. A similar tethered rover with three large inflatable wheels was proposed for future Mars missions [89]. Independently conceived, the family of Axel rovers was initially developed a decade ago to provide modularity and separation between the most failure-prone mobility elements and their respective science payloads [64, 95].

6 Illustration of the type of observations to be achieved by space missions in order to successfully address the key science pertaining to the three cross-cutting themes highlighted in Vision and Voyages. Note that in general we lack high resolution observations at the millimeter to meter scale that can be best obtained by in situ exploration. Image courtesy of [29] ratios requires in situ exploration. With appropriate instrumentation packages, this capability would enable physical and chemical characterization of surface properties relevant to both human and science exploration.

For primitive bodies, using fuel efficiently implies longer observation times and more attempts for surface contact. • Guaranteeing safety: A trajectory solution is needed that can ensure spacecraft and mission safety at all times, for both the vehicle and its neighbors. Guarantees are typically classified into two forms: passive safety, in which coasting arcs emanating from points along the nominal guidance trajectory are certified as safe, or active safety, in which safe actuated abort sequences called collision avoidance maneuvers (CAMs) are enforced [46, Sect.
