    I'd have to say Voyager II - I was in college in '86 and my astronomy professor's wife was one of the staff for the Voyager missions, during the Uranus flyby he was constantly flying out to see what was happening and bringing back fresh images sometimes even before the media got them. Ah good times...

    My favourite is Curiosity which is exploring on Mars. My future's on Mars.
    But I also like Voyager 1 and 2 a lot! I mean, who wouldn't want to know what they can find outside the Solar System?

    Mine is also New Horizons. I'd like to see the Kuiper Belt objects more than Pluto, but seeing what Pluto looks like would still be cool.
