As we continue to bring extraterrestrial samples back to the Earth system for advanced research and analysis, there is an urgent need to understand and prevent biological contamination of the terrestrial environment. Mission-enabling and capability-driven research is required to improve NASA's understanding of the potential for both forward and backward contamination and improve methods and technologies for accurate, efficient, and effective minimization of biological contamination for outbound spacecraft and return samples.
