The Space Innovation and Growth Strategy published in February 2010 recommended that

The UK should initiate and lead at least three space exploration or science missions by 2030.


In order to further the debate on this recommendation, a Royal Astronomical Society specialist discussion meeting was held in London on Friday 12 October 2012, where potential candidate missions that might satisfy this objective were presented and discussed.


Talks from the meeting programme are posted here.


The organisers would like to thank everyone who participated in the event, for a highly productive and interesting meeting.
