Of all the firsts, undoubtedly the outstanding achievement of the Mariner 10 mission was the spectacular unveiling of the planet Mercury….

But it could flash them back to Earth with such rapidity that it was possible to map the entire lighted portion of the planet with excellent resolution” (Robert S. Kraemer, introduction)
