MercuryBook - 2005
Mercury, the planet closest to the Sun, is also the smallest, densest, and least explored of the terrestrial planets. Author Kim O'Connell examines this heavily cratered and fast-moving planet that was known by the ancients but still offers scientists much to discover. The MESSENGER mission, only the second mission to Mercury, will enter the planet's orbit in 2011.
