4. It's rather telling that all the text blocks were photoshopped out...

I'm not accusing you of anything here, all you did was share an interesting graphic. I tried finding the ORIGINAL original and almost every image Google was coming up with was this one in various sizes. I did find one that had all the text on it, but the resolution was rather crap which made reading the fine print - particularly the copyright - difficult.

6. There is a name there on the Flickr Account

I don't know if that's who the owner is or not. Maybe you could try contacting him.

I'd enjoy seeing a full size poster of that as well. It reminds us where we've been and how much more we still have to learn.

8. A little misleading - it implies Cassini and New Horizons went into orbit around Jupiter

before leaving and proceeding to Saturn and the journey to Pluto respectively. Both of them just did a fly-by of Jupiter.

I'm amazed at the number of missions to Venus there has been. Nearly all Soviet - and many early failures, looking at the key to the colours in the link in #7. But only 2 to Mercury.
