mercury - Newest pictures


Sun-scorched Mercury is only slightly larger than Earth's Moon . Like the Moon, Mercury has very little atmosphere to stop impacts, and it iscovered with craters. Mercury's dayside is super-heated by the sun , but at night temperatures drop hundreds of degrees below freezing. Ice may even exist in craters. Mercury's egg-shaped orbit takes it around the sun every 88 days.
