Abstract
This presentation traces the evolution of techniques and results of deep space mission imaging experiments over the past two decades. It is a story of rapidly developing capabilities, starting with tiny snapshots of the primeval face of Mars and culminating in dazzling color portraits of the complex and beautiful rings of Saturn. In between, a rich legacy of images was returned from spacecraft variously flying by, crashing into, orbiting or landing on the moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and the many satellites of the two giant planets. Spacecraft, optics, detectors, electronics, scan platforms, telemetry transmitters, giant receiving antennas, and a variety of computers comprise the technology of this odyssey.
