Mercury

Launch year Mission Description Status
1957 Mercury-1 Mercury fly-by. Loose thrust plate caused the initial Earth orbit to be inadequate to achieve the fly-by. Failed – orbiting the Sun
TBA

Venus

Launch year Mission Description Status
1954 Venus-1 Fly-by of Venus, to return scientific reading and images. Success – now orbiting the Sun
1956 Venus-2 Place a probe in permanent orbit around Venus. No signal, despite same antennae configuration as Venus-1. Failed – orbiting the Sun
1957 Venus-3 Place a probe into polar orbit, to map the surface of Venus. Also carried an experimental lander, which exploded due to unknown caused upon entering the atmosphere. Success – lander exploded
TBA

Mars
