NASA's Messenger spacecraft has swung around its namesake planet for three years, beaming observations of Mercury back to Earth, but next March it will smash into the cratered surface it has been studying from afar. The satellite's oblong orbit around the solar system's innermost planet brings it gradually closer and closer as it looks into Mercury's mysterious volcanoes, craters and magnetic field. With dwindling fuel to counteract the dense planet's pull, the scientists managing the mission at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel can only delay its fall for so long.

Hot as a pizza oven on one side and colder than an Antarctic winter on the other, the planet Mercury isn't a place most people would spend good money to visit. But scientists and engineers in Maryland and across the country are as happy as tourists queued for a flight to the tropics as they await the planned Aug. 2 launch of the first mission in 31 years to the sun's nearest neighbor. Called Messenger, the unmanned, desk-sized spacecraft was designed and built at the Johns Hopkins University's Applied Physics Laboratory near Laurel.

Maryland's House Republicans decided this week to jettison Del. Anthony J. O'Donnell from the leadership of their caucus on the grounds that a new messenger is needed to revitalize the party's prospects and pick up seats in the 2014 election. We wish new Minority Leader Nicholaus Kipke and new Minority Whip Kathy Szeliga the best of luck; Maryland is better when it has two functioning political parties. But color us skeptical that rearranging the deck chairs in the House GOP caucus is going to accomplish much.

For Jones, who will play football for reigning national champion Alabama, there was the two-point run in overtime to win the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship against Calvert Hall, the hoop that made him Gilman's all-time leading scorer in basketball and sprinting to two more league titles in track this spring.
