Finely-textured slope patches on Mercury
Finely-textured slope patches on Mercury During its final months in orbit, MESSENGER took some very close-up views of Mercury's surface. Among the interesting textures it observed at close range was a type of terrain Misha Kreslavsky and coworkers have termed "finely-textured slope patches", which have no equivalent on the Moon.
