I second Andy's question - these objects are some of the prime focus items of the OPAG group and their
next flagship mission, and we have plenty on our plate.

I had put these bodies into the Science Issues section for completeness – and no one objected. We have had a presentation on a proposed JPL rendezvous mission to Triton at our first meeting. While I agree that these bodies are not the small bodies that I am interested in, we do have Pluto and KBOs as well. In this light the large icy satellites are not out of place.

Just curious what this part implies:

Presumably we’re not taking on Ganymede/Titan/Triton/etc in the small bodies roadmap?
