Merger proposal[edit]

I propose that MarcoPolo-R be merged into Marco Polo (spacecraft). The same Marco Polo mission concept was submitted 4 times (M1, M2, M3 and M4) and was rejected each time for the "M" medium-class missions under Europe's "Cosmic Vision" programme. MarcoPolo-2D, as the latest concept was termed, has been culled at the very first stage of the new competition. Updated news at [1]. Cheers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 16:31, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
