We have entered an era of detailed spacecraft reconnaissance of asteroids and comets. This exploration is motivated by a growing curiosity about our closest celestial neighbors, the hazards these bodies present, our desire to understand how planets form, and our vision for a human future in space. The goal of AstroRecon is to identify and evaluate the best technologies for spacecraft robotic reconnaissance of comets, asteroids, and small moons — paving the way for advanced science missions, exploration, sample return, in situ resource utilization, hazard mitigation, and human visitation.

The Conference on Spacecraft Reconnaissance of Asteroid and Comet Interiors (AstroRecon) will be held January 8–10, 2015, at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona. The conference begins the day after the conclusion of the 12th Meeting of the NASA Small Bodies Assessment Group, which will be held January 6–7, 2015, in Phoenix.
