The Solar System Advisory Panel (SSAP) roadmap is the result of more than two years’ work by SSAP and the community.

The roadmap is designed to advise the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC). It advises on the status of solar system science in the UK and in relation to the global efforts, the most pressing issues, opportunities, and threats as seen by SSAP on behalf of the community.
