Abstract [en]

The Mariner 10 spacecraft made three fly by passes of Mercury in 1974 and 1975. It imaged a little under half of the surface and discovered Mercury had an intrinsic magnetic field. Here we briefly describe the surface of Mercury as seen by Mariner 10 as a back drop to the new discoveries made since those historic fly bys by ground-based observations and to the optimistic anticipation of new discoveries by MESSENGER and BepiColombo spacecraft that are scheduled for encounter in the next decade.
