Choosing from a field of twelve proposals, NASA has recently whittled the group down to two finalists for the agency's next New Frontiers mission. Receiving the nod to receive additional funding and study in 2018 were missions to Saturn's moon Titan and the recent European Space Agency (ESA) target, Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.
NASA has received and is currently reviewing 12 proposals for a future robotic Solar System exploration mission. The mission proposals, submitted to the space agency's New Frontiers Program, will undergo technical and scientific review over the next seven months. The goal is to select a mission in about two years, with a launch in the mid-2020s.
