Over the next few days and weeks, fully expect to see more and more cool images like the one here.  The Messenger spacecraft is starting to send back pictures from its trip to the planet Mercury, and they are stunning!  This is the side of Mercury we haven’t seen before – battered in may ways like our own moon.  No more images in my head of a molten surface!  Link to the Bad Astronomy website.
