Photo geeks and space nerds unite. Saw this and had to share it. This is the first time mankind has ever seen the planet Mercury in its entirety. Scientists used thousands of images collected for over a year by the MESSENGER probe to completely map the surface of the planet, taken at a resolution of 1km per pixel.
The yellow-orange sections are highly volcanic lava plains, and the dark blue areas are assumed to be minerals.
Watch the planet spin a complete 360 degrees and read more about the process HERE.
Serious credit goes to those slackers at NASA/Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab and the Carnegie Institution of Washington for the images.
This is often a really useful chemistry web page.
I was very pleased to find this great site. If you don’t mind Could I also reveal a suggestion. Fidning a sexy muscles love firm could possibly be dificult, should you live in Sourthern California and you also desire a sexy muscles professional, mouse click my link.
Often Space nerds ARE photo geeks. There are so many missions out there right now that have the express purpose of making the universe available to us through imagery. We learn volumes from what we see and it is no small wonder that it is arguably the most influential, emotional, yet empirical pieces of our universe.
Thanks for sharing!
PBS published this amazing and beautiful short video about the aesthetics of Astrophotography.
