Messenger probe shows off side of Mercury never seen before

Now we can see part of the Planet Mercury that we have never seen before. Some of the 1,213 photos taken by NASA's Messenger probe and unveiled Wednesday help support the case that ancient volcanoes dot Mercury and that it is shrinking as it gets older, forming wrinkle-like ridges. But other images are surprising and puzzling. The spidery shape captured in a photo is "unlike anything we've seen anywhere in the solar system," said mission chief scientist Sean Solomon of the Carnegie Institution of Washington. The image shows what looks like a large crater with faint lines radiating out from it. Do you think that human would be able to travel through outer space in the future?

oh yes, i believe so but not in our lifetime nor someone elses lifetime , it would be of another generation because by the time we take off from earth and towards space, it would take another generation for us to reach there, we will die in space and let our kids do the next journey from space.
