The Washington Post on Planetary Science

A couple days ago, the Washington Post published an opinion piece lamenting the current state of planetary science. The author’s main objection to how things are going is that after the next couple years, there are basically no missions slated to go to other planets in the solar system for more than a decade. These kinds of missions take a long time to prepare, so even if more funding is given, there is limited time to fit in more missions.
