Return to the Ice Giants

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!!

An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
