Well, I’ll be first here and will tell you about Orion, although you might have already heard about this development. Orion has being Developed since the 2000s. It's supposed that this spacecraft will send people to the Moon, the ISS, and even Mars. I believe it’ll help our country to repeat success in the Moon landing.

And I would like to mention the Parker Solar Probe. Simply for getting closer to the sun than any other spacecraft so far and considering how hard it is to get that close. The space craft which is capable to take samples from the outer corona of the Sun really makes you amazed by it, because of the high temperature it can endure.

And also, I wanna add a few words about the Dawn Probe. It uses an advanced ion thruster, allowing it to be the first (man-made) spacecraft to orbit multiple non-terrestrial bodies (Vesta and Ceres). This feat would not be possible (practical) using conventional chemical thrusters, which have too low of a specific impulse.
