The most beautiful and detailed image of the planet Mercury. The beauty of it is, that even though it is so close to the sun, some of these craters still hold water ice deposits in their depths. Mercury looks a little bit like Earth's moon. Like our Moon, Mercury's surface is covered with craters caused by space rock impacts. Credit: J. Hopkins University, Applied Physics Lab .
