Awesome Space Probe Map Shows Every Mission Now Exploring Our Solar System


This detailed space probe map was created by Olaf Frohn, a blogger and infographic expert for the Planetary Society. Using data from NASA, Frohn has updated the map monthly since 2010 to reflect changes in the missions positions and to point out new launch and flyby dates.

“This month’s events are the arrival of MAVEN and Mars Orbiter Mission at Mars, and of course the ongoing excitement at Churyumov-Gerasimenko,” Frohn wrote on his blog “Armchair Astronautics,” referring to U.S. and Indian missions to the red planet and the European Space Agency’s project to land on a comet.
