The Pluto fly-by mission launches this winter coming up, and should get good detailed images and other data about Pluto in July 2015. If you eat your vegetables, exercise, and cut back on sugar and fat (or if medicine produces the right new miracles) you should be alive to at least get a hint of it.

The Ion-drive based missions could possibly have landers at both places within twenty years if we don't squander our resources trying to get men to Mars too early.
