Argo by WS-Clave Argo by WS-Clave
The Argo had a revolutionary argon enhanced ion drive system and was built for a mission to reach Pluto.  The Argo was approx 45m long and 9m across.

The Project Pluto crew were Professor Peabody, Major Spry, the Treen scientist Thandar, and Hugo Guest.

The ship lost contact not long into the flight.  It turned out that the ship design had been subverted by the Treen and on arrival at Pluto they were captured by the Mekon.

Dan Dare and the Interplanet Fleet appeared in the Eagle comic from 1950 to 1969.  The Eagle was revived in 1982 but with limited success.

I liked Dan Dare, because it was of that era when people knew very little about the planets and sort of thought that Martians and Venusians were a real possibility...
