Ron, if I heard correctly, the next flight isn't scheduled until 2018. It's kind of sad to me cwy , when I think about the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions and the frequency of those flights. At least the Pluto mission is coming up shortly; I'm looking forward to the images. I find the solar system exploration missions from various countries quite interesting. smile
