Caption: Diagram showing the interior of the terrestrial planet Mercury. The biggest feature by far is the enormous core, which takes up about 70 per cent of the planet's radius. It is made almost entirely of iron and may be partially molten. The mantle, above this, is a relatively thin shell of solid rocks. The outermost layer is the crust, which is thought to be about 60 miles (100 km) thick
