New Pictures From Messenger!

October 1, 2009

Messenger (how do they come up with the appropriate acronyms! after all, Mercury in the mythology is a messenger god), the space probe that was launched towards Mercury recently had its third and last flyby, which means that in the next approach, Messenger will orbit the tiny planet. Anyways, during the flyby, the probe observed the remaining unexplored part of Mercry and took more pictures. Take a look, and enjoy!
