List of Space Probes

With the imminent flyby of Pluto, all nine worlds in the solar system will have been surveyed in one form or another over the decades. This NASA site – Solar System Exploration – recounts the various efforts by different countries and also allows searching by target, space probe name (every letter in the alphabet but Q and X have been used to name probes), and year. Following the embedded links leads to more detailed information on the probes along with “fast facts” and if mission goals were accomplished or not. Please consult the monograph Deep Space Chronicle for additional information on probes from 1957 – 2000.
