Pioneer 10 and 11 were the first in the Pioneer series of spacecraft to fly by a planet, specifically Jupiter (both) and Saturn (Pioneer 11). Like their forerunners in the Pioneer series, they were also designed to make studies of the solar wind and interplanetary medium. Further information about each individual mission is available below.
