ABSTRACT:

CRYOBOT: New Technology for Exploring Ice on Earth, Mars and Europa

Terrestrial ice contains a rich sedimentary record of climate history, meteorite flux, and volcanic events. Other planets, such as Mars and Europa, are also observed to have icy surfaces which may contain a record of their formation, or even biotic signatures. However, access to deep ice is commonly accomplished using large coring devices unsuitable for planetary use. A new subsurface mobility vehicle has been developed for exploring ice on Earth, as well as on Mars or Europa. I will describe the case for exploring ice, as well as showing tests of the prototype vehicle.
