Space Probe to Crash on Mercury

NASA's Mercury Messenger space probe is out of fuel, and it's expected to crash into Mercury around 3:30 p.m. ET Thursday, according to Paulette W. Campbell, a spokeswoman with the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, which has been managing the mission.
The probe will hit the planet's surface at 8,750 mph. You won't be able to see it hit because Messenger will crash on the side of Mercury facing away from Earth.
