NASA’s Messenger spacecraft started taking detailed pictures of the surface of Mercury recently from an altitude of just 125 miles and captured a boatload of pretty great photos, including this one. Small, hot, and looking remarkably similar to the Moon, Mercury makes for some nifty pictures, although I won’t deny that I’m disappointed that there aren’t scary volcanoes spewing forth lava onto the domain of fire elementals. It’s not just me, is it?
