Fig. B-2. The small area circled on the picture of Mercury (Caloris Basin) is enlarged to show the individual picture elements (pixels) that make up the picture. Each of these elements is transmitted from the spacecraft as a binary number which the ground computer processes through phototerminals into the reconstructed picture to duplicate the picture originally recorded on the vidicon aboard the spacecraft.
