baa,
That's rather odd.  There's absolutely zero interest in this spendy
mission.

Perhaps that's because both of it's CCD cameras are broken, as in
having worse off DR than common film.

Too bad that it's of no use for Earth-science, of having been of no use
for moon-science, and obviously worthless for anything of
Venus-science.  Just for getting better science and terrific images of
reestablishing much of what we already know about Mercury.
