Tiny mercury can have a solid metallic core that competes with the earth

A solid metallic nucleus nearly as big as Earth could lurk deep in the smallest planet of the Solar System. This emerges from new research based on data collected by NASA's NASA (Mercury Surface, Space Environment, Geochemistry and Ranging) ( MESSENGER ) mission. This spaceship orbited the tiny planet for four years before deliberately crashing on the surface of Mercury. …

Surprise! Dust ring discovered in the orbit of Mercury

Two dusty discoveries can shatter our understanding of the inner solar system. Mercury shares its high orbit with a large ring of moving dust, as a recent study suggests. And a cloud of as yet undiscovered asteroids has probably led to a similar halo in the neighborhood of Venus, concludes a new newspaper. "It's not every day to discover something …
