First Image Ever Obtained from Mercury Orbit
At 5:20 am EDT on Mar. 29, 2011, MESSENGER captured this historic image of Mercury. This image is the first ever obtained from a spacecraft in orbit about the Solar System’s innermost planet. Over the subsequent six hours, MESSENGER acquired an additional 363 images before downlinking some of the data to Earth. The MESSENGER team is currently looking over the newly returned data, which are still continuing to come down.
Hahahahaha it’s not the first. YOU FOOLS. I took the first image.
We made the Beatles! This took us probably 20 hours. I don’t know. I can’t be sure. It was over the span of…like, a month. Converting from space-time was never my forte.
