Solar System Missions Update 07/2018

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

Mars lander InSIGHT and the MarCOs cruising towards Mars, which will be at oppositon this month on the 27th. And the launch window for the Parker Solar Probe opens on the 31st August 4th.

But the biggest show right now for me is Hayabusa 2 with a great approach to Asteroid Ryugu and great images, upcoming in September is the landing of the MINNERVA 2 and MASCOT probes on the asteroid.

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


  1. Please update Parker Solar Probe Launch date: No earlier than Aug. 4, 2018
