Determination of Parameters Related to the Interior of Mercury

Abstract

--Bounds on (C-A)/C for Mercury as a function of the uncertainty in the value of the obliquity are determined. The high precision of 1 of arc which is required for reasonable bounds on (C-A)/C cannot be obtained by either earth based observations or the television imagery of the Mariner 73 flyby. Among other methods discussed, one involving both landers and… (More)
