Part of the problem (I think) is that planetary scientists don't speak with one voice: some want a Pluto probe, others think Europa is a higher priority. If they keep arguing among themselves, they're risking not having any probes.

I really can't understand why there's so much difficulty in getting a simple probe there. We've had missions to every other planet, but nobody seems to think it's worthwhile to visit little ol' Pluto. As the prime example of outer solar system objects, I would think people would love to know more about it.
Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.
