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 
Survey

in order to be competitive.
