*but were afraid to ask

Here's the Mercury thread about all things Hermean.

New Research Suggests Mercury’s Poles Are Icier than Scientists Thought

http://www.astrowatch.net/2017/09/new-r ... poles.html

Quote:
The study, published in Geophysical Research Letters, adds three new members to the list of craters near Mercury’s north pole that appear to harbor large surface ice deposits. But in addition to those large deposits, the research also shows evidence that smaller-scale deposits scattered around Mercury’s north pole, both inside craters and in shadowed terrain between craters. Those deposits may be small, but they could add up to a lot more previously unaccounted-for ice.
