It initially included what would have been the first lander on the planet’s surface, but that part of the mission was cancelled due to its high cost. Mariner 10 Mariner 10 departed Earth on 3 November 1973, making one flyby of Venus and three of Mercury before ceasing to transmit on 24 March 1975. It was the first spacecraft to “slingshot” around a planet, using the gravitational pull of Venus to help manoeuvre into an orbit that matched Mercury’s orbit. Mariner 10 held eight instruments to measure the surface, atmosphere, and general environment of both planets.
While flares have been studied for over 150 years, CMEs were first conclusively detected in 1971. They are usually associated with flares, and are thought to be generated when loops of magnetic field ‘cut loose’ by a magnetic reconnection, and the filament material within them, expand violently outwards. CMEs form billowing clouds of relatively dense material within the general ‘solar wind’ of particles flowing out from the Sun, but compared to radiation storms they travel at comparatively sedate speeds of a few hundred kilometres per second.
Modern Maximum The Modern Maximum began around 1914 and lasted throughout the rest of the 20th Century, with peaks in the Fifties and Nineties. The subdued activity seen in the current Solar Cycle 24 may be a sign that it has now come to an end. field’ boxout on page 33). By the end of the 11-year cycle, the Sun’s magnetic field has been converted back to a simple ‘dipole’ arrangement, but with its north and south poles reversed, and the cycle begins again. However, a detailed understanding of the dynamo remains elusive, since it relies on an accurate model of the Sun’s interior.
