Going to the cinemas these days offer us an option – to watch a movie in 3D or not? Well, NASA’s MESSENGER has started to orbit the planet at 01:45 CET, where this little transport that could will carry the necessary scientific instruments required to map Mercury from a distance, analyzing the structure and composition of its surface in the process while creating what some might call a 3D model in the end. Scientists at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum fur Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) will be the brains that analyze collected data from three of the instruments on the MESSENGER. Being the smallest among the terrestrial planets, Mercury is still a huge mystery since it possesses an unusually high density with an interior that comprises of an iron core surrounded by a thin rocky mantle and crust. You won’t need to wear a dorky pair of 3D glasses to see the planet in 3D glory, that’s for sure.
