8 images of Mercury: Revealed by Mariner 10
REALLY? A "God" comment on a science related article? God didn't build the space craft, or develop the technology, WE humans did. Save your bible banging for when you're in church. Maybe you also have a quote from the easter bunny, or big foot perhaps?
It is ridiculous and vain to comment on an article without reading it first. The images were taken in 1975 by the Mariner 10 probe (an un-manned probe), not by the Space Shuttle. Cheers to Eric, point well made.
I can't believe that with all the technological advances we've made, we haven't visited Mercury since 1975!
The point is that we want to underestand the universe around us.
Most of us do, anway. Some uf us complain endlessly about the quest for knowledge. If Humanity listened to those cringers, we would still be living in caves.
