Teams of scientists from around the United States have submitted 
proposals for the thirteenth mission in NASA’s Discovery program. 
Discovery is a class of small planetary science missions, with costs 
capped for this round of proposals at $450 million (not including the 
cost of a launch vehicle). There is no pre-specified target list for 
Discovery missions, but they must be based on the scientific questions 
highlighted in the National Research Council’s Planetary Science Decadal 
in order to be competitive.

This article by Jason 
discusses many of the proposed missions based upon descriptions provided 
by their sponsors.
