NASA's Messenger reveals close-ups of Mercury's sun-scorched surface

Mercury Surface, Space Enviroment, Geochimestry and Ranging. Ending mission

Planet family photo UPDATED to reflect accurate colour of each 'planet' as now confirmed by visiting voyager space craft ( since Pluto was still categorised as a proper planet when Voyagers mission set off / only fair to perpetuate this now the mission has been successfully implemented perfectly by the Voyager team ( Pluto is still a dwarf minor planet ) but to avoid having dozens of similar sized minor planets, scientists used common sense and recategorised Pluto downward ( demoted it )…

We've finally added Pluto to the family portrait of the Solar System

SPACE - This example of our solar system use scaling to show size, order, and distance of planets to the sun.

Want to feel humble and completely insignificant? Stop for a moment and think, just think, how tiny Earth is in our Solar System, and it is but a dust mite in the Universe!

Astrological Planets –There are eight planets in the Solar System. In order of increasing distance from the Sun, they are the four terrestrials, Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars, then the four gas giants, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune. Pluto was discredited by some...but I'm not buying it! lol

In Western astrology, the location and movements of the astrological planets, sun and moon are major influences of the traits associated with the zodiac signs. The exact position of the planets,…

Complex: The Sun is seen as central to our solar system, but even that is on its own journey through the 'Local Bubble'

Trapped in a bubble! Scientists shed light on the Earth's galactic neighbourhood

Did a lost star knock the Earth off its orbit? New theory to explain why our planet circles the sun at an angle to the solar equator

When the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft flew by Saturn in 1980 and 1981, they were able to pay only fleeting attention to Titan, the second largest moon in the solar system (larger even than the planet Mercury) and the only solar system moon with an appreciable atmosphere. These images are from subsequent Titan flybys in 2005 and 2006. - Image credit: NASA / JPL / University of Arizona
