Meet the Messenger....

Thu, 31 Mar 2011

NASAs Messenger entered orbit around Mercury a few weeks back. These are exciting times for exploring the solar system and there hasn't been an orbiting satellite around Mercury before, although imagery was sent back by Mariner 10 in the mid-1970s during a flyby. Anyway, we now have the first imagery from orbit. Expect a flurry of rapid academic papers from the plethora of data to follow.
