2015 in Space

It should be interesting.

In January, SpaceX will attempt to land the first stage of an orbital launcher on a barge. If they fail, they'll try again.

In April, Dawn should enter Ceres orbit.

In May, the Planetary Society should launch a solar sail spacecraft.

In July, New Horizons should fly by Pluto.

In November, Japan will make another attempt to put their Akatsuki spacecraft in Venus orbit.

The flotilla of Mars orbiters and surviving rovers will continue to probe Mars. Cassini continues to explore the Saturn system.
