✨Mercury✨ ✨✨facts About mercury✨✨

Mercury is 3.285 x 10^23 kg or 1,516 miles

Mercury is the 1st planet from the sun ☀️

The average temperature on mercury is 430. The weather in the daytime is 430. And the average in nightime is -279.

The surface of mercury is rocky, it also has volcanos and craters 🌑☄️✨

Since Mercury has hardly any atmosphere, it does not have weather as severe as storms, clouds, winds or rain. Its surface temperature can reach 801 Fahrenheit during the day (because it is so close to the Sun) and can drop to -279 Fahrenheit at night (because there is no atmosphere to trap the daytime heat).

Mercury does not have any moons, mercury also does not have any rings around it. "No, Mercury doesn't have either rings or moons. Neither does Venus! I think that this is because the planets are fairly close to the sun, and the sun's strong gravity would interfere with anything in orbit around those two planets."

It takes 88 EARTH days to go around the sun. Also, 88 days on earth is one year on mercury.

"In Roman mythology Mercury is the god of commerce, travel and thievery, the Roman counterpart of the Greek god Hermes, the messenger of the Gods. The planet probably received this name because it moves so quickly across the sky." The planet mercury was named after the Greek god, mercury. "The Romans knew of seven bright objects in the sky: the Sun, the Moon, and the five brightest planets. They named them after their most important gods. Because Mercury was the fastest planet as it moved around the Sun, it was named after the Roman messenger god Mercury. Mercury was also the god of travelers. According to myth, he had a winged hat and sandals, so he could fly."

The sumarians discovered mercury, and they discovered it in 2nd millennium BC.

We have not sent probes or satellites to this planet because it is way WAY to close to the sun ☀️

Humans are not currently able to travel to mercury, because of how close mercury is to the sun.

"The planet Mercury looks a little bit like Earth's moon. Like our Moon, Mercury's surface is covered with craters caused by space rock impacts. Mercury is the closest planet to the sun and the eighth largest."

"Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun and is also the smallest of the eight planets in our solar system. For every 2 orbits of the Sun, which takes around 88 Earth days, Mercury completes three rotations of its axis. It is gravitationally locked and this rotation is unique to the solar system."

"Mercury is the smallest and fastest planet in the solar system. It is also the closest planet to the sun. It is named after the Roman messenger god Mercury, the fastest Roman god. The planet Mercury was known by ancient people thousands of years ago.It is essentially a large metal ball of iron with a very thin silicate crust. Mercury's core makes up about 75% of the planet. Its thin mantle, or crust, is only about 300 to 400 miles thick (500 to 600 km). Next to Earth, Mercury is the second most dense planet in our Solar System"
