Excellent diagram although takes itself just a tad too seriously, where's the red Tesla?

Where's Roadster?

Emily Lakdawalla’s book
The Design and Engineering of Curiosity was a great layman’s read if you’re interested in a good narrative of what’s going on up there.

On a similar theme is spaceprob.es. A little info and links about every extant spaceprobe in the system.

This is great and planetary evangelist Emily Lakdawalla is great.

I know it's been quite a while since they've been in contact, but I'd love to see Pioneers 10 and 11 included here.
