Solar System Missions Update 05/2015

My map of all active and future Solar System Missions as of May 1st 2015. Dawn is now in Rotation Characterization Orbit 3 (RC3) and will descent down to Survey Orbit (4400km) this month.

PROCYON has a destination: 2000 DP107, if it can be repaired, MESSENGER may or may not be still alive on May 1st, and if it can be revived we may hear from Philae again this month, or next month, or the one after that. Hooray for Schrödinger's missions!
