Mercury's fragments that scattered billions of years ago might be buried on Earth: Report
Mercury, the smallest planet in our solar system, has been looming close to the sun for billions of years and has conditions impossible to support life. #bepicolombo scientists @planetlorenza @valemercurii et al have mapped the Kuiper region of Mercury’s surface using @MESSENGER2011 data, which corresponds to the same region we saw during our first Mercury flyby last year! New paper👉https://t.
Planetary scientist at the University of Lorraine in France, Camille Cartier, who presented this new theory, and her colleagues strongly support the argument that there was a super-Mercury that existed billions of years ago. In the new paper, the experts have underscored the properties of aubrites.
Since scientists do not have any samples from Mercury, there is no concrete evidence that the aubrites discovered on Earth really do belong to the dreaded planet. These asteroids then must have undergone collisions of their own and with contributions from the solar wind, the fragments produced post-collision might have reached planets of the inner solar system including the Earth.
