You should then get a pop up that says "Continue System O-1942 Discover Ship's Fate" or something along those lines. Click it and it will return you to that instance.

Or, you could just drop the mission. You won't miss out on anything, because exploration missions aren't attached to any quest or story chain, and can be repeated as much as you like.
This. Any mission that only gives you a one-liner for it's text is an exploration mission. They should also show up under the heading "Exploration" in your mission log. Simply return to the cluster and you'll have a low-priority option to continue (i.e. to the right of the screen). If you've forgotten which cluster to go to, you may drop it without any penalty.

As an exploration mission, I don't personally count it as a bug that you have to remember something. You can add a supplemental log to the quest if you're leaving the system and think you'll forget.
