Revealed: New NASA images show Mercury as you have never seen it before


www.dailymail.co.uk

Dramatic new pictures have revealed the unseen side of Mercury in detailed images taken from a Nasa spacecraft orbiting the planet.

Astronomers saw the "dark side" of Mercury for the very first time when the spacecraft flew within 125 miles of the planet's surface and took 1,200 high resolution images.

The reason the solar system's smallest planet is so elusive is due to its close proximity to the sun.

More pictures are coming soon. Anyone see anything unusual? Wonder how long they have been sitting on these and how long it took them to "adjust" them for the public. You would think a color picture would be the norm these days...

If i didn't know better I would say they were pictures of our moon. Very cool pictures though. Hope they keep publishing more.
