Landing robots

Rosetta and Hayabusa missions added to the costs the fact that they had to carry a lot of heavy equipment for large distances. The weight taken by the fuel forced the planners to slim down the instruments. This is a huge opportunity to land sizable robots with adequate solar panels and a lot of instruments on an asteroid.
