The first decade of RHIC physics and the first heavy ion running at the LHC have produced a wealth of data and discoveries. It is timely to now evaluate what has been learned and ask what compelling new questions have been raised. In this talk, several key unanswered questions about the properties of the strongly coupled quark gluon plasma and the distribution of partons inside nucleons and nuclei will be discussed along with how they can be addressed experimentally. The PHENIX Collaboration has developed a plan for upgrading the experiment in order to address these new questions. The current status of these plans will be presented.
