Comments:NASA spacecraft to begin collecting data on Mercury

Why why whyEdit

...must people create these ridiculous forced acronyms/abbreviations? It's just Messenger! The demi-god mercury was the wing-ed messenger. It's good to name the spaceprobe that. It doesn't need to be justified further, have some damn confidence! Apollo didn't also stand for Advanced PilOtted Lunar Landing Operation, it was just the god Apollo. <sigh> -- 16:42, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
