Solar System Missions Update 06/2018

Here's my map of all active and future Solar System Missions as of June 1st 2018.

This time not with one, not two, but four new spacecraft on the map: The Mars lander InSIGHT, along with the first interplanetary cubesats MarCO-A and MarCO-B, aka. Wall-E & Eve. And the Chinese communication relay orbiter for the Lunar far side mission Chang'e 4, Queqiao (鹊桥) or Magpie Bridge. Also, Hayabusa 2 is getting very close to Asteroid Ryugu, less than 10.000 km right now.

Data, images and documentation are available on my space exploration history GitHub repository and the associated website.
