Mercury is a planet shrouded in mystery. Only 45 percent of its surface has been seen in any detail, and that was from Mariner 10 flyby in 1974. New Earth-based observations have shed light on surface and exosphere compositions, and re-evaluations of the Mariner 10 data, using modern image processing techniques, show evidence for volcanic flow fronts, pyroclastics and other volcanic phenomena not seen before.
An accompanying CD contains all the best Mariner 10 images, including the data for each image, photomosaics and maps.
