As well as being covered in craters, it showed that Mercury has a magnetic field a lot like Earth’s and a helium-rich atmosphere and an iron-rich core, with an average daytime temperature of 187 degrees Celsius (369 degrees Fahrenheit) and an average nighttime temperature of -183 degrees Celsius (-297 degrees Fahrenheit). More than 30 years later, Messenger became the second spacecraft to visit Mercury. Before entering the planet’s orbit, it performed one flyby of Earth, two of Venus, and three of Mercury.

The weakness of Solar Cycle 24 has even inspired some solar physicists to suggest that we might be on the 2001 Cycle 23 peaked between 2000 and 2003. In March/April 2001, the Sun released huge CMEs and one of the most powerful flares ever recorded Centres of activity begin to converge on the equator, forming a broad band of bright features at low latitudes. The Sun’s overall magnetism starts to lose its simple ‘dipole’ structure This sequence of images from NASA’s SOHO spacecraft captures an entire solar cycle at extreme ultraviolet wavelengths, highlighting hot features such as flares above the Sun’s visible surface Experts at the Space Weather Center at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center track solar disruptions to predict their impact on Earth 37 The Sun What is a sunspot?

Venus Express, the European Space Agency’s first mission to the planet, launched in 2005 and has been sending data back from orbit ever since. Venus Radar Mapper Launched on 4 May 1989, the Magellan spacecraft, also referred to as the Venus Radar Mapper, reached Venus's orbit on 10 August 1990. The mission’s primary objective was to map the surface of Venus with a synthetic aperture radar (SAR). Just 19 days after its arrival the spacecraft began a 243-day mapping cycle. Magellan used radar to get through the thick atmosphere, and returned unprecedented highresolution images of more than 98 per cent of the planet’s surface.
