Looking ahead, NASA is reviewing mission proposals that may include returning to Saturn to search for signs of life on ocean worlds, like the planet's moons Enceladus and Titan. Planned missions to Mars, Mercury, Jupiter and other celestial bodies in our solar system and beyond are also in the works.

Here's a list of some of the orbiters, probes and rovers en route to new destinations or slated to launch in the next few years.

Look at the plans ahead on site, links on site and much more information. Enough to get me excited.

Review the information.

Look at stunning phootographs.

Please note, comment and forward.
