Solar System Missions Update 2019-09

Here's my map of all active and future Solar System Missions as of September 1st 2019.

The month starts off with the next perihelion for the Parker Solar Probe right on the 1st. Chandrayaan 2 is now in lunar orbit and will deploy the Vikram lander for a lunar touchdown on the 9th.

Hayabusais still busy at asteroid Ryugu, dropping off 2 more target markers on the 5th, and maybe landing the Minerva II2 rover at the end of the month. More details in a press conference on the 24th.

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