Earth, Mercury, and Earth's Moon compared
Mercury is a little larger than the Earth's Moon and is believed to be composed mostly of iron and rock, making it considerably denser than the Moon. Mercury also has a magnetic field about 1% as strong as the Earth's.
Special thanks to James Hastings-Trew for his Mercury surface map.
