IPPW 2019

The 16th International Planetary Probe Workshop was held at Oxford University from 8-12 July 2019. As in previous years, the IPPW brought together scientists, engineers, technologists, mission designers, space agency representatives and students from around the world for a collaboration focused on exploring solar system destinations through in-situ missions. IPPW 2019 workshop continued the IPPW tradition of encouraging international co-operation in planetary probe missions, the development of new and emerging technologies, and scientific discoveries. The Workshop on 8-12 July was preceded on 6-7 July by a Short Course, on Ice Giants (Uranus & Neptune). Topics included an overview of current scientific understanding and open questions regarding the ice giants, mission proposals in development, science payloads for ice giant probes, and technologies for entry, descent systems.
