I tried to go to Mercury over the weekend. I got within about 85 M meters, but I guess the Sun is just too strong that close because the g at the bottom of the Orbit MDF still said 0.00.

Oh well, I did get to see Mercury though.

You mean we cannot orbit around mercury ? :wonder:

Anyway I tried the new Venus texture by Seth and my new
temperature profile for Venus.....

Don't forget your sun glasses and cream :)


here the reentry display with temperature in C° when landed
(may vary about+-70° depend of the weather)

here we have a "cold" day on venus. (click on link)

what to exactly do.

Well it looks like you can orbit Mercury, but judging from what they plan for the Messenger satellite, the approach is more like a rendezvous with the ISS than the Transx Hohmann transfer I tried.
