Solar System Missions Update 08/2015

My map of all active and future Solar System Missions as of August 1st 2015. After all the excitement at Pluto it is time to put the potential future targets for New Horizons on the map. As of now these are 2014 MU69 and 2014 PN70, but will be reduced to one certain destination this month. And I'm sure it will get a nicer name before New Horizons gets there.

In other news, the first Orion/SLS test mission EM-1 gets more and more Cubesats piggybacking on it, as of now there are 5, Lunar Flashlight and IceCube will go into Moon orbit, NEA Scout into interplanetary space, plus BioSentinel and SkyFire.
