What surprises and unresolved issues did the Mariner 10 mission leave in its wake? 2. Compare the MESSENGER and Bepi Colombo missions. How would you improve either mission and what would be the impact on spacecraft resources (mass, power, bandwidth) and cost. 3. Discuss what spatial and temporal resolutions and coverage will be provided by instruments on both missions, and the adequacy and limitations of this instrumentation in revealing the dynamic character of Mercury’s interaction with its environment.
