Mercury Comes Into View

I got all shivery when I saw this first image of Mercury taken from its own orbit. Photographs taken in outer space just put it all in perspective for me.

Here’s an ancient depiction of the god Mercury from a bakery in Pompeii. This puts it all in another kind of perspective. Look at that, um, loaf!
