Prediction Confirmed! – Mercury’s Iron Core

Prediction confirmed!

On July 26, 2010 I made the following calculated prediction. Verbatim quote (see here (scroll down)):

“A prediction: Mercury’s rocky outer shell will be found to be far thinner than expected (or the iron mass far larger).”

Now take a look at this recent news article titled ‘Mercury gets a dose of extra iron.’

 “Team members on the MESSENGER mission orbiting Mercury—with some help from Earth-based radar scientists—are reporting that Mercury’s iron core is even larger than had been previously thought.”

“That would leave the planet with a rocky rind as little as 200 kilometers thick.”
