Solar System Missions Update 11/2014

My map of all active and future Solar System Missions as of November 1st 2014. This month' excitement: The Landing of Philae on Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Which will take an astonishing 7 hours of descent between separation from Rosetta and touchdown. In analogy to "6 minutes of terror" maybe we could call it "7 hours of existential dread". And at the end of the month follows the launch of Hayabusa II.
