MERCURY BASE

On September 21, 1974, the Mariner 10 space probe conducted its second fly by of the planet Mercury. It transmitted images of the planet's surface along with atmospheric data. Among the images captured by the spacecraft was a disturbing image which was not publicly released.

The following recording captures the moment the images were first relayed to League Control by Captain Spears, who had been monitoring Mariner's transmissions at the time.
