Mickey Mouse likeness found on Mercury
Photo taken by orbital spacecraft Messenger
Disney is known as the happiest place on Earth, but Mickey Mouse has seemingly left his imprint on Mercury, too.
Three craters resembling the head of the iconic Disney character have been photographed by NASA’s Mercury orbital spacecraft Messenger.
Mercury, the planet nearest to the sun, has numerous craters, and the ones resembling Mickey Mouse's head are located in the southern part of the planet.
The photo is part of the collection of almost 90,000 images taken by Messenger over the year-long preliminary mission of the spacecraft.
