In the light of the latest news over InSight's possible landing site, I thought I'd bump this thread to find out if anyone's heard anything new about MetNet - I seem to recall a piggyback with InSight being mooted at one point, but that possibility appears to have gone by the wayside. Although MetNet's Twitter account seems fairly active, I can't seem to find any updates on the precursor mission itself more recent than 2013.

I'm hoping a reduction in launch costs over the next few years will finally make this (and other occasionally mooted missions from across the world) cheap enough to fly.
