The Caloris image is full of interest, but what I hadn't noticed before was that little 'ice cream cone' shaped crater chain in the bottom third of the image terminating in a tiny, but bright crater...

It seemed unbelievable that something that big had not been visible before". Linda Morabito on discovering that the Jupiter moon Io was volcanically active. Friday 9th March 1979.

The folks at APL have put up a really nice web site showing the visual data and timeline of the first flyby. Its at:

http://messenger.jhuapl.edu/encountersactual/

I like how it shows the Planned view, and then what they actually got.

The data is in the PDS. Space Daily has an article about it at:

I'm one of the most durable and fervent advocates of space exploration, but my take is that we could do it robotically at far less cost and far greater quantity and quality of results.

I was just going to point that out. Here's a version enlarged and processed to bring out relief near the terminator - showing a bit of rotation since the big mosaic was made earlier.
