The Ice Giants, Uranus and Neptune, are the least explored class of planets in our Solar System, having been visited only once by a passing spacecraft, Voyager 2. These distant Ice Giant Systems may be hiding secrets that could reveal the origins of our Solar System, and are our nearest and best representatives of a type of planet that is commonplace in our universe.

In January 2020, Planetary Scientists from around the world will meet at London’s prestigious Royal Society for a three-day workshop on the future exploration of the Uranus and Neptune systems. We will aim to shape the key scientific questions that will drive mission planning in the coming decade, aiming to make use of ideal launch opportunities around 2030.
