MERCURY RISING
Mercury's crust likely made of magnesium-rich basalt
Washington DC (SPX) Jan 31, 2013
With both x-ray and gamma-ray spectrometers, the MErcury Surface, Space ENvironment, GEochemistry and Ranging probe (MESSENGER), which entered orbit around Mercury in 2011, is well equipped for carrying out a detailed compositional analysis of Mercury's crust, the understanding of which could help determine the nature of the planet's formation, and of its volcanic past. Using spectrometric measurements and laboratory analyzes of Mercury surface-analogue samples, Stockstill-Cahill et al. determine ... read more
