New Scientist photo of Mercury's mysterious Rembrandt crator

Woo hoo! Not sure how I've missed the New Scientist website before but it has such a plethora of interesting articles you'll want to discover them for yourself.

From H1N1 (Swine) Flu's genetic analysis to a near-Earth asteroid 2009HC82 recently found orbiting our Sun in retrograde orbit (rare, and should have already been seen) to an article about NASA's possibly abandoning its plans for a Moon base, this site really rocks!

And if you're in a jurassic mood, you may wish to check out "First dino 'blood' extracted from ancient bone" while you're visiting.

Oh, and my personal favorite, "Mysterious spokes found in crator on Mercury" in a fly-by photo from Oct 2008 courtesy of NASA's Messenger spacecraft - click to view an Astrology chart-with-details of Jan 14, 2008, the day of Messenger's launch.

The strange spokes and troughs are seen in a photo (included) of Mercury's Rembrandt crator so fly-by the New Scientist when you can!
