Craters seen on Mercury smallest planet of our solar system Nasa shared the picture

The American space agency 'NASA' brings us face to face with unseen pictures of the universe every day. A surprising picture of Mercury has been shared on NASA's Instagram handle. Mercury is special in many ways. It is the smallest planet in our solar system. Is closest to the Sun. Despite this it is not the hottest planet. In the picture shared by NASA of Mercury, it is visible in many shades of brown and blue. Many pits are also visible on the surface of Mercury.

While sharing the picture of Mercury, NASA wrote, Mercury may be the smallest planet of our solar system and it is also the fastest. It travels in its orbit at a speed of about 47 kilometers per second. It takes only 88 Earth days to revolve around the Sun.

This picture of Mercury has been captured by a spacecraft named MESSENGER. It was the first spacecraft to orbit the planet Mercury. Messenger prepared several color maps of Mercury, so that its chemical, mineral and physical properties could be distinguished. This picture of NASA has got more than 12 lakh likes.

It is noteworthy that space agencies around the world are exploring the planets of our solar system. NASA is at the forefront among them. The American space agency has sent its spacecraft to almost every planet. Most of the focus is on Mars and Moon. Due to Mercury's proximity to the Sun, space agencies are currently sending fewer missions to that area.
