What's your favorite probe in real life or SFS?
Hard to say, there are many I like. From those notably:
- Voyager 2, only probe that made a fly-by of Uranus and Neptune, and one of the 5 existing that are leaving the solar system.
- Cassini-Huygens, a probe that orbited around Saturn during many years, and managed to land a small lander on Titan.
- New Horizons, only probe that made a fly-by of Pluto, and another one leaving the solar system
- Rosetta-Philae, first probe to orbit a comet and land something on it.
- Hayabusa 2, that managed to visit an asteroid, and send back some samples of it to Earth.
- Curiosity and Perseverance, probably the most ambitious Mars missions to date.
