TransNational Access Activities
The core objective of the project is to provide European users a structured access to state-of-the art facilities. This is done through three TNA activities.
- TNA1 Planetary Field Analogues: the selected field sites provide the most realistic analogues of Mars, Europa and Titan;
- TNA2 Planetary Simulation Facilities: these laboratory-based facilities are able to recreate the conditions found in the atmospheres and on the surfaces of planetary systems, with special attention on Mars, Europa and Titan;
- TNA3 Planetary Sample Analysis Facilities: they combine the resources of leading analytical laboratories to analyze meteoric and returned samples with un-parallel precision).
Further information on the TransNational Access Activities is available here.
