After more three years of orbiting Mercury, NASA’s MESSENGER spacecraft provided many new and surprising results. This session will highlight the latest results on Mercury from MESSENGER observations and at the same time look ahead to observations still to come e.g. BepiColombo.
Wi is planed to have a few overview talks and many smaller contributions to enable comprehensive discussions. Contributions addressing the planet’s geology, surface composition, topography, gravity and magnetic fields, exosphere, magnetosphere, and solar-wind interaction, ground-based observations, laboratory measurements, or theoretical developments relevant to planetary processes are welcome
