The planet Mercury was once an active and dynamic planet, according to new evidence from a Nasa spacecraft. Data from the American Messenger probe shows that impact craters on the planet's surface were distorted by some geological process after they formed.
Colors of the Innermost Planet: This image of Mercury was produced by using images from the color base map during MESSENGER's primary mission. These colors are not what Mercury would look like to the human eye, but rather the colors enhance the chemical, mineralogical, and physical differences between the rocks that make up Mercury's surface.

Four views of planet Mercury showing surface detail by NASA: MESSENGER's highly successful orbital mission camae to an end, as the spacecraft ran out of propellant and the force of solar gravity caused it to impact the surface of Mercury on April 30, 2015. #Space #Mars #Mercury_Messenger
Mercury ~planet of the mind Mercury may be one of the smaller planets of the solar system, but its power is great. Mercury is the power of the mind, our ability to think, perceive and communicate. from: Planetary Magic@ http://christopherpenczak.com/online/?page_id=371
