Gotta Love It

This is the first ever picture of Mercury taken from the first ever orbiting satellite [how cool is that?--we have a satellite around another planet] Messenger (NASA link).

A space program. Hmmm. Perhaps it's not worth our time...what could we possibly learn? What technologies could we possibly develop? Why bother?

Why bother?

Regardless...cool picture! The white structure is am impact crater named Debussy. It only got it's name last year. It's diameter is 53 miles. the lines emanating from it are matter ejected from the impact.
