Mariner 9 which produced the first detailed images showing that Mars
is currently a desolate, cratered world;
Viking which searched (unsuccessfully) for life on the surface of the
Pioneer and Voyager probes which provided the first surveys of the outer planet and their moons;
Galileo which is currently sending back extremely detailed images
of Jupiter and its giant satellites.
