This crater on the planet mercury appears to be smiling for the camera! ๐Ÿ™‚
this shot was taken on a previous @nasa mission but two new satellites from europe and japan are currently heading towards the smallest planet in our solar system to try and unlock its mysteries. the joint endeavour, known as bepicolombo, left earth this weekend. it may take seven years for the probes to get there – but looks like they’re get a very warm welcome…

Chinese and british climbers have found a giant cave hall at the bottom of a 200-metre long sinkhole in guangxi in china, state tv says. the team could only access it by lowering themselves into the sinkhole using a single rope. it is hoped the discovery will help geologists to understand the region better. #cave #sinkhole #rockclimber #discovery #bbcnews

This amazing creature is a deep-sea cucumber - otherwise known as a “headless chicken sea monster.” it's been filmed in the southern ocean off east antarctica for the very first time. this species of deep-sea cucumber had previously only ever been captured on camera in the gulf of mexico. #seacucumber #marinelife #amazing #bbcnews

Amelia eldred says her friends are “amazing.” the 8-year-old from tamworth, staffordshire, had her left leg amputated last year after being diagnosed with bone cancer. but look at the reaction from her classmates when she walked into school on her prosthetic leg for the first time. amelia had a rare procedure called rotationplasty to reattach the lower part of her leg backwards so she could have a prosthetic fitted. #prostheticleg #grouphug #brave #instagood #bbcnews

If sir david attenborough could be an animal for a day, what would he choose to be? ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿป๐Ÿถ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿต? no, it turns out he'd like to be a sloth. the naturalist and broadcaster says what could be better than "hanging upside down in a tree, with nothing to do." #internationalslothday #sloth #davidattenborough #bbcnews

A rarely seen red jellyfish has been spotted in deep water off the coast of southern california. scientists from exploration vessel nautilus used a remotely controlled vehicle to dive down and observe deep sea creatures. when it doesn't have lights shining on it, the poralia rufescens jellyfish's red colour usually camouflages it in the water. red light disappears as you go deeper. #jellyfish #ocean #california #amazing #bbcnews
