NASA has released the first images from the Messenger, which is orbiting Mercury.

They hardly make the planet seem like the burning cauldron we've always expected it to be. Looks kinda cold, actually.

Scientists are expressing surprise at the number of smaller craters the pictures show.

There are more pictures here. Here's the first color close-up of the planet.

Mercury went retrograde today, btw, in Aries, a fire sign. No wonder it looks cold!
