Default U.S. planetary scientists want to explore Uranus and Enceladus next

U.S. planetary scientists want to explore Uranus and Enceladus next


APRIL 20, 2022

The continuing search for life beyond Earth is driving many of the priorities for what’s next when it comes to U.S. planetary exploration. In a new report that could shape the next 10 years of planetary missions, Mars, Uranus and Saturn’s moon Enceladus have come out on top.

This report is the latest decadal survey for planetary science and astrobiology. Every 10 years, experts convened by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine compile a look at the state of the field and pull together a list of recommended priorities for the next decade of exploration. The new survey, which covers 2023 to 2032, will be used by NASA, the National Science Foundation and others to help guide which projects are pursued and funded.

After the successful 20-year mission of Cassini at Saturn, a Uranus orbiter would be the next logical step in outer solar system exploration. Voyager 2 has been the only spacecraft to visit it, flying by in 1986. Not only is Uranus tilted on its side, unique among the planets in our solar system, it has over two dozen interesting moons, some of which like Jupiter's Europa and Saturn's Enceladus, could have a liquid water ocean under their icy surfaces.

Wouldn't it make more sense to send gays to Uranus?

The seventh planet really got a "bum" rap with its name.

That's true. If I were going to settle there, I'd prefer to live on Uranus's moon Miranda. That way, if I got captured by space aliens, at least I would have the right to remain silent, the right to the presence of an attorney, . . .

Over half a century ago Hollywood gave us a glimpse of what the first space explorers to the 7th planet would likely encounter:
