    Tim, I hate to correct you, but technically we have “landed” a probe on Jupiter. The Galileo probe dropped a probe into Jupiter and studied it’s atmosphere, sending back data until it was crushed and cooked by Jupiter’s atmosphere.

    There was an atmospheric probe on Jupiter, not exactly a lander, but more than an orbiter.

    Dr Mel and Winky remind me of Dr Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker.

    I’ve been following space exploration since the Mercury Project when I was a kid.

That the old an falling apart Russian space station is costing billions to maintain and serves no practical purpose whatsoever, E. All of the above.

    Not to worry, it’s ‘only’ a spleen feeder. He’ll get a new one.

    Poor Winky. I hope that he at least got a nice dinner out of the deal. Maybe even a little Barry White playing in the background…

    Mars is missing an exploration icon! Ingenuity isn’t either “orbit/close up study” or “lander”.
