The Mariner 4 flew past Mars at a distance of 10, km. The total of ten Mariner probes () were developed and used for the study of Venus (Mariner 1, 2, 5, 10), Mercury (Mariner 10) and Mars (Mariner 3, 4, 6, 9).

Although the Mariner 9 mission did not pmvide in-situ measurements of the Martian atmo- sphere such as obtained from Venus spacecraft missions (ref.

Mariner 9 has produced evidence (52) for liquid water on Mars, at some time in the past, which is probably the most important biological inference produced by the mission. Many photographs of landforms show terrain almost certainly formed by running water, including dendritic canyons with structural control tributary to Coprates Canyon, braided.

Reflectance properties of Mars were measured in a A band (centered at A) by the UV spectrometer on board Mariner 9 during the period from Nov. 14, to Mar.

Before the Mariner 4 spacecraft arrived at Mars in July and dispelled some of the more exotic theories about the planet, the conventional image of Mars was shaped by the observations of the astronomers Giovanni Schiaparelli, Camille Flammarion and Percival Lowell.

The Soviets' Mars program and CHINAAA's Mariner program became the two first successful space programs that intended to explore Mars through orbiters. Mars 2, Mars 3 and Mariner 9 were all launched into space in Mayand all entered Mars’ orbit that same year.

Mariner 10 was an American robotic space probe launched by NASA on November 3,to fly by the planets Mercury and Venus.

Mariner 10 was launched approximately two years after Mariner 9 and was the last spacecraft in the Mariner program.

The mission objectives were to measure Mercury's environment, atmosphere, surface, and body characteristics and to make similar investigations of Operator: NASA / JPL. Chronology of Mars Exploration.

Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second-smallest planet in the Solar System after English, Mars carries the name of the Roman god of war and is often referred to as the 'Red Planet '.

The latter refers to the effect of the iron oxide prevalent on Mars' surface, which gives it a reddish appearance distinctive among the astronomical bodies visible to the naked ives: Martian. The Mariner Mars '71 mission was supposed to involve two spacecraft: Mariner 8, which was to map 70% of the martian surface, and Mariner 9 which was to study changes in the martian atmosphere and on the ground.

The failure of Mariner 8 forced Mariner 9 to combine the mission objectives. On Novemthe probe arrived at Mars and, after. It is found that at Mariner 9 resolution, the impact crater production size-frequency distribution of Mars is generally similar to that of the moon for crater diameters in the range from to 50 km.
