Return to the Ice Giants

Currently, so many different aspects of our Solar System are being scrutinized by science spacecraft that it's hard to keep up with the pace of discoveries, which is a really good thing! Sadly, what I wish the next exploration frontier to be is out of reach budget-wise at the moment: the Ice Giants. A Uranus or Neptune orbiter mission seems like the next logical step in the exploration of the Solar System. Onwards!!

Funding is critical. The more we have, the more effective we can be, translating into more missions, more science, and more exploration.
