Odyssey Dramatic Presentation MERCURY - A RELATIVE PLANET

Coventry, West Midlands, United Kingdom

Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun and due to the difficulty in observing it has been neglected over the years, yet this planet has helped change our view on the motions of the planets, nearly ruin the career of a famous astronomer and perhaps may hold the key to planetary formation. The whole history of the observation of Mercury is examined right up to the very latest images from the Messenger spacecraft. Illustrated with remarkable images, accompanied by music this presentation will forever change the way to think of Mercury.
