Abstract: A primary motivation for in situ probe and balloon missions in the Solar System is to
progressively constrain models of its origin and evolution. Specifically, understanding the origin and
evolution of multiple planetary atmospheres within our solar system would provide a basis for
comparative studies that lead to a better understanding of the origin and evolution of our own solar
system as well as extra-solar planetary systems. Hereafter we discuss in situ exploration science
drivers, mission architectures and technologies associated with probes at Venus, the giant planets and
Titan.
