    Mariner 2 was the name of the spacecraft which was launched for Venus in December 14, 1962. It was made to know more about Venus's shape and size and physical characteristics. @katlove14

    The Magellan was a Venus approached spacecraft which left on May 4, 1989, and landed back on Earth on August 10, 1990. It mapped Venus using synthetic aperture radar. The imaging system produced images at 300 meters resolution. @katlove14
