Thanks to NASA’s completed MESSENGER probe mission, we can now explore Mercury in detail. Resembling our Moon, and with a similar atmosphere, our solar system’s innermost planet has enough activity in its interior to generate a small magnetic field. Join guides Denton Ebel and Carter Emmart for an up-close examination of our solar system’s smallest planet.
Support for Hayden Planetarium Programs is provided by the Schaffner Family and the Horace W. Goldsmith Endowment Fund.
