How MESSENGER Reshaped Our Understanding of The Solar System

Good day, everyone,
I haven't sent much out partly because I have been so so SO busy with the MESSENGER and New Horizons missions that I haven't had much time to do any sky stuff. But as of yesterday the bulk of my MESSENGER duties was brought to a final close as the spacecraft slammed into the surface of Mercury at over 8700 miles/hour. More on that in a moment.
