Click on the image below to see some great photos of the planet Mercury. The Messenger probe took some great shots of the planet today.
A quote from the website… “To become the first spacecraft to orbit Mercury, MESSENGER must follow a path through the inner solar system, including one flyby of Earth, two flybys of Venus, and three flybys of Mercury. This impressive journey will return the first new spacecraft data from Mercury since the Mariner 10 mission over 30 years ago. Here you can find details about that journey, the MESSENGER spacecraft, and the Mission Operations Center.”
