Quotes

"We examine the quality of water regularly and figures on the chemicals in the water are checked every day in all of these facilities. The level of arsenic is tested every six months" said Hai
...will be an entirely new mission," added MESSENGER Principal Investigator Sean Solomon, of Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. "With each orbit, our images, our surface compositional measurements, and our observations of the planet's magnetic and gravity fields will be higher in resolution than ever before. We will be able to characterize Mercury's near-surface particle environment for the first time. Mercury has stubbornly held on to many of its secrets, but many will at last be revealed."
"I certainly expect that we will see impacts on ecosystems and agriculture at the regional level with increased aridity," says Cook. "You can already see this happening with some of the severe droughts in the southwest and California."
