  Mariner 9
Mariner 9 was a NASA space probe orbiter that helped in the exploration of Mars and was part of the Mariner program.
Mariner 9 was launched toward Mars on May 30, 1971 and reached the planet on November 13, of the same year.
Mariner 9 was designed to continue the atmospheric studies begun by Mariners 6 and 7, and to map over 70% of the Martian surface from the lowest altitude (1500 kilometers [about 900 miles]) and at the highest resolutions (1 kilometer per pixel to 100 meters per pixel) of any previous Mars mission.

Mariner 2 approached Venus from 30 degrees above the dark side of the planet, and passed below the planet at its closest distance of 34,773 km at 19:59:28 GMT 14 December 1962.
In 1967 Mariner 4 returned to the vicinity of Earth again and engineers decided to use the ageing craft for a series of operational and telemetry tests to improve their knowledge of the technologies that would be needed for future interplanetary spacecraft.
Mariner 8 was to map 70 % of the Martian surface and Mariner 9 was to study temporal changes in the Martian atmosphere and on the Martian surface.

The Mariner 5 spacecraft was launched to Venus on June 14, 1967 and arrived in the vicinity of the planet in October 1967.
The Mariner 10 spacecraft launched on November 3, 1973 and was the first to use a gravity assist trajectory, accelerating as it entered the gravitational influence of Venus, then being flung by the planet's gravity onto a slightly different course to reach Mercury.

 Mariner 10 Quicklook
Mariner 10 was the first mission to use the gravitational attraction of one planet to reach another, the first mission with two planetary objectives, and (to date) the only mission ever to perform up close imaging and science at Mercury.
Mariner 10 took some 4,000 photos of Venus, which revealed a nearly round planet enveloped in smooth cloud layers.
After the Venus flyby, Mariner 10 was sent towards Mercury, which it flew past at 756 km altitude on March 29, 1974.

Mariner 10 was launched on November 2, 1973 atop the Atlas/Centaur rocket from Launch Complex 36B.
The path of Mariner allowed images to be obtained of the north polar region of the Moon, which, because of constraints on paths of other space vehicles, had previously been covered only obliquely.
Mariner 10 was placed in a orbit around the Sun that returned the spacecraft to Mercury twice more at a six-month intervals.

 Mariner 10
Mariner 10 was the seventh successful launch in the Mariner spacecraft series, and the first to use the gravitational pull of one planet (Venus) to reach another (Mercury).
After the Venus flyby, Mariner's trajectory was bent in toward the Sun to accelerate and fling it out of Venus's gravitational field and onward to Mercury.
The Mariner 10 spacecraft weighed 503 kilograms (1,108 pounds), including 29 kilograms (64 pounds) of fuel and 30 kilograms (66 pounds) associated with the adapter between the spacecraft and the Centaur upper stage launch vehicle.

 2008 Mercury Mariner Introduced
Mariner is available in two trim levels: the well-equipped Mariner and the up-level Mariner Premier that adds bright machined 16-inch aluminum wheels (with optional chrome-clad 17-inch wheels), available satin inserts on the roof rack, leather seats, a power driver’s seat, dual automatic temperature control and body-color mirrors.
For 2008, Mariner’s car-like feel is further improved with a reduction in the rear spring rates from prior models and a front stabilizer bar that grows from 20 to 21 mm.
Compared with the previous model, the 2008 Mariner is 12 percent quieter on the highway (30.8 sones to 27 sones at 80 mph in the wind tunnel) and 20 percent quieter in high velocity cross winds.
