The international consensus planetary protection policy, maintained by the Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) of the International Council for Science, requires specific constraints on the development and operation of spacecraft with the potential to enter so-called “Special Regions” on Mars. A Special Region is, roughly speaking, a location on or within Mars where Earth life might survive and proliferate. At NASA’s request, the Mars Exploration Program Analysis Group (MEPAG) established the Special Regions Science Analysis Group (SR-SAG2) in October 2013 to re-examine the quantitative definition of a Special Region and proposed modifications to it, as necessary, based on the latest scientific results.
