This is a beautiful infograpic of Earth’s space exploration, with the missions to the different bodies in the Solar System. As one can see, our focus and funds are spent mostly on the rocks, and comparatively there’s little exploration of the actual planets [right half]. That right half’s satellites are the truly interesting rocky surfaces to explore, but sadly our rovers are not quite there yet. It is not shown here, but the beautiful Voyager 1 recently left the Solar System and we can see it radioing as a pretty blue dot.
