Uploader comment: This image is a portion of the MDIS global mosaic basemap that was acquired during MESSENGER's first year in orbit. The scene, with north to the right, shows a geological feature termed Victoria Rupes a long cliff or scarp that formed when Mercury shrank slightly as its core cooled.
