Other minor planets and comets[edit]

I propose to add the few non-asteroid minor planets that are relevant (Pluto and 1999 TC36, from the top of my head) to this list. I think it would then also make sense to include the relevant comets, making it a list of all minor bodies in the Solar System that have been, are scheduled/proposed to be, or were once proposed to be visited by spacecraft. --JorisvS (talk) 09:43, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

I take it then that there are no objections? --JorisvS (talk) 21:12, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Flyby AND orbit for Shomaker?[edit]

Isn't it redundant to add the flyby of Eros by NEAR Shoemaker since it also orbited? Orbit + landing, yeah, they are two different things. But since the orbit is mentioned, anyone can easily deduce that NEAR came close to the piece of rock.
