As Mariner 10 left Venus behind, mission director Donna Shirley and her team realized they had to find a way to complete the upcoming trajectory correction maneuver without using the gyros.

Mariner 10 flew by Venus 40 years ago to enable the probe to gain enough speed and alter its flight path to eventually become humanity’s first spacecraft to reach the planet Mercury, closest to.

Mariner 2 (designated Mariner R-2) was launched on Augsending it on a 3½-month flight to Venus. The mission was a success, and Mariner 2 became the first spacecraft to have flown by another planet. Mission: Venus flyby weight: kg ( lb).

The mission objectives. Mariner 10 was the first spacecraft to visit was launched in It also studied Venus on its way to Mercury. Mariner 10 used the gravity of Venus to reach Mercury. Mariner flew past Mercury 3 times managing to detect its magnetic field.

To reach Mercury, Mariner 10 first passed by Venus, threading through a narrow kilometer (mile) “window” of space a few thousand kilometers above the surface.

That level of accuracy had not been possible with the navigation systems available for the Pioneer 4 mission in The Mariner 10 Mission to Venus and Mercury, also known as Mariner Venus Mercuryis the only spacecraft to have flown past the innermost planet.

Liftoff went without many problems and data sent during its flyby corroborated the Soviet's Venera 4 lander which arrived at Venus the day before, that the Venusian atmosphere.

The first spacecraft to visit Mercury was NASA’s Mariner 10 (–75). The spacecraft used the gravity of Venus to adjust its orbital velocity so that it could approach Mercury, making it both the first spacecraft to use this gravitational “slingshot” effect and the first NASA mission to visit multiple planets.
