Galaxy Express 999 . It's been at least 15 years since I've seen it, but from what I recall it was good.

I recomend Gundam Wing

Man has colonized space (with major colonies at each of the five Earth-Moon Lagrange points), and, down on the earth, the nations have united as the Unified Earth Sphere Alliance. Unfortunately, the Alliance rules the colonies with an iron fist. The colonies wanted a peaceful resolution to the situation, with the movement was headed by the pacifist Heero Yuy. Unfortunately, in the year After Colony 175 he is shot dead by an assassin's bullet making the colonies turned to search for other means of obtaining peace. This prompts five scientists from the Organization of Zodiac, much more commonly referred to as OZ, to turn rogue after the completion of the mobile suit prototype OZ-00MS Tallgeese

I was thinking about that one, too. I bought the Memories DVD a little while back, and all three of the stories are pretty good. [thumbsup]

Not exactly "exploration" but certainly outer-space.... and the effects of space travel relative to the passing of time - Check out Voices of a Distant Star.

Come to think of it, it's more of a romance. And only a half hour long. But good stuff.

I've recently watched the first five episodes of Innocent Venus and found it interesting enough to keep with. It's more about Mechs than space, but the storyline is good.

Synopsis: Set in a post-apocalyptic world, two mercenaries (Jin and Jo) in stolen Mechs have preemtively kidnapped a young girl to save her from being kidnapped by Phantom, a Black Ops arm of the ruling government. The role of this girl is unclear to the viewer and to the girl herself. Jin and Jo are attempting to transport her through the badlands to a man who can tell her more about her purpose, defending her all the while from the vast technological resources of the government.

A fair number of the scenes are noticably CGI enhanced--something that hasn't been so obvious in any other anime I've watched. I'm still unsure of whether I think this is too distracting.
