Abstract

A summary review of the scientific findings of Mariner II is given insofar as available data allow. The instruments and those characteristics of the total rocket system which affect the scientific experiments are described. The review covers both planetary and interplanetary results and provides descriptive material on the instruments.

Portions of this paper were presented at the One-hundredth Annual Meeting of the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, D. C., April 22–24, 1963.
