Breaking news: the back side of Mercury is just as boring as the front


I’m sure it’s “revolutionary” (or not, because otherwise they wouldn’t have had to fly past it…) that we now know what the back side of Mercury looks like, but it doesn’t seem to be too attractive or different from any other photo of a grayscale pancake that I’ve seen.

I am, however, impressed by the fact they’re transferring 700GB of data from the probe. I bet they wish they’d installed a removable hard drive and booked a courier now.
