13 OCT: It’s small, it’s hot, and it’s shrinking.  New NASA-funded research suggests that Mercury is contracting even today, joining Earth as a tectonically active planet.  Images obtained by NASA’s Mercury Surface, Space Environment, Geochemistry, and Ranging (Messenger) spacecraft reveal previously undetected small fault scarps— cliff-like landforms that resemble stair steps. These scarps are small enough that scientists believe they must be geologically young, which means Mercury is…
