Space missions to follow in 2017

January 3, 2017 by Christoff Truter

This year we can look forward to a number of fantastic missions, this is by no means a comprehensive list. I am only going to list the ones that particularly excites me - bear in mind that missions can be postponed (or even cancelled).
