Beofre this year one planet: Earth would be said to be the only actively tectonic planet in our system. However now data from a NASA spacecraft, Messenger, shows that Mercury is shrinking. It is showed by a series of small cliffs jutting out of the surface. Scans of Mercury have revealed previously unseen ripples in the surface showing us it is tectonic itself.
