NASA’s next science missions will head for Venus, Io, or Triton

NASA has selected four proposed missions, spread out across the solar system, for further review in its hunt for the next big planetary science missions. Two missions would travel to Venus, a third to Jupiter’s moon Io and a fourth to Triton, a moon of Neptune.

Venus cloud cities are the best choice.

I am torn. The Io one sound neat but so do the Venus missions. The Triton one is just a flyby and would take too long.

Venus or bust! Cloud cities anyone? They'd work well on Venus.

If you go to Jupiter you get more stupider. Go to Venus to get more penus!

Io sounds best if you pronounce it like you a japanese anime girl. I-o!

Personally I'd love to see both Venus missions. A deep study of the gases of the planet and a long term topology of the surface.
