Caption

Mercury and its interior, illustration. The internal structure of Mercury is dominated by a large solid iron core (red), and a liquid outer core (orange) of iron, sulphur and silicates. An iron-poor silicate mantle (grey) lies below a 10-kilometre-thick silicate crust (black line). The surface of Mercury depicted in the graphic is based on images taken by NASA's Messenger spacecraft.
