Requested by Congress in P.L. 110-422 and P.L. 111-314, this new report from the National Academies provides a comprehensive mission strategy for planetary science for 2013-2022. The report identifies priorities for exploring the solar system, moons of the major planets, dwarf planets and small bodies, and primitive bodies including comets and Kuiper Belt objects.
