Response to Ichingcarpenter (Original post)

8. A little misleading - it implies Cassini and New Horizons went into orbit around Jupiter

before leaving and proceeding to Saturn and the journey to Pluto respectively. Both of them just did a fly-by of Jupiter.

I'm amazed at the number of missions to Venus there has been. Nearly all Soviet - and many early failures, looking at the key to the colours in the link in #7. But only 2 to Mercury.
