This particular question is a rare instance of a list question that is acceptable to our community, even though it will change with time. It covers material not easily found elsewhere and of use for gauging the state of an important part of the field. List questions are generally frowned upon on SE, but each SE site is different and needs to establish its own approach to them.
Community Wikis are the only reasonable way to handle the list questions that meet our standards. They are specifically meant to be edited by many people, and the usual rule of preserving author intent doesn't hold. They allow everything to be in one answer, which is the only way a list can be kept organized and clear.
Ideally, people will maintain that answer with new information as it becomes available. If that peters out, then it remains a reference point for the status of deep space missions at the time when it was last edited - taking into consideration it also makes a point of stating the list may be incomplete.
The date when something was asked and when an answer was last edited is shown on all questions. Maybe it is worth considering adding some special cautionary note to the text of that answer to ensure readers take note of the date of the last edit and if it is old bear in mind the list is likely outdated. I haven't thought of a really good way of doing that. Putting it in the title of the question doesn't strike me as the right place. I think it would be a bad idea to start asking the same question more than once, and wouldn't want to encourage that by dating a question explicitly that way. Spreading the same information across a series of questions sounds like a great way to make it harder to find and incomplete.
The question can be considered a bit of a test case. I believe there are a few other list questions in our library, but can't think of one and don't know how I might search for other examples. It would be good to get further input on this matter.
