A mosaic of MESSENGER images showing the center of Mercury's Degas Crater at a resolution of about 11 meters per pixel. A wide variety of geologic features comes into view at this scale, including material moving down steep slopes, hollows, and fissures likely formed when pools of molten rock on the crater floor cooled.
