Interplanetary spaceflight or interplanetary travel is travel between planets within a single planetary system.[1] In practice, spaceflights of this type are confined to travel between the planets of the Solar System.


Current achievements in interplanetary travel

Remotely guided space probes have flown by all of the planets of the Solar System from Mercury to Neptune, with a probe currently en route to fly by the dwarf planet Pluto. The four most distant spacecraft (Pioneer 10, Pioneer 11, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2) are on course to leave the Solar System.
