Has Bob been dead the required time frame?

Your OP is blank.

Might I recommend, since you still have time to do so, go back and edit it to actually include the information you were posting?

Does the person for whom we have to name these things actually have to be a person from real life? If not,
Greek mythology for instance lands us up with a prime candidate!

The crater closest to the sun, or which receives the most sun should be called The Icarus Depression! Other than that, I care not! I am more interested in the science than the sensationalism!

Im not sure the article said someone whom has contributated to the field of space so mythical or real .
Spock is not real but certainly contributed to space,
And I mean mr Spock not Dr Spock.
or Chewbaca crater Hans Solo

Its also all those dogs an chimps whom died whilst testing rockets were given some recognition.
Since Plutos no longer a planet we need more animaql names in space no one can hear you bark.

Yes, I'm sure somewhere, someday, somebody will find it important what names were chosen for these 5 craters on Mercury.

Nah.... no they won't.

This may be the silliest, most self-important "contest" that's ever existed.

This thread is a JOKE right? Everything on mercury is melted, how can there be craters?

You might find yourself naming new craters every day or week. The craters melt and get formed in and another one pops up somewhere else. Sort of like naming craters next to an active volcano eruption. Why bother. Maybe a good name would be another joe hole.

Mercury is full of craters. They don't melt. Ice cream melts. But I like the image though. As for names, yes, Bob, that'll do nicely.

It takes temperatures between 600 and 1,300 degrees Celsius (1,100 and 2,400 degrees Fahrenheit) to melt rock. Mercury's surface doesn't get higher than 427 °C (800 °F) at the equator. Mercury's poles are cold enough to hold some ice in the permanently shadowed regions.

en.wikipedia.org...

In fact, Venus is hotter than Mercury (with the mean temperature of 462 °C) due to the strong greenhouse effect.

yes plenty of craters that will outlast us all.
And with the demotion of PLUTO TO A KHYBER BELT OBJECT / PROTO PLANET.

Mecury IS NOW THE SMALLEST PLANET In the solar system

I think RISEING would be a good name for a crater .

Mecury Riseing heard that some place?

...3 Freddie Mecury ...



As a fan of Queen and of the great voice talent that was Freddie Mercury, I concur. (although I truly doubt a crater will be named after Freddie).

Mercury has craters that are billions of years old, bombarded over the years by material pulled towards in by the gravity of the Sun. Even though it is the closest planet to the Sun, it's not close enough to the Sun to be molten.

Mercury is similar in appearance to the Moon:
