Hiyah Ilah. No problem, thank you for helping me out.
So I heard you wanna learn about planets? Well you've came to the right spot.
Great, thanks for your help. I want to learn about Mercury.
Mercury was named after the messenger-god of Jupiter, and is the closest planet to our sun. It is also the smallest planet in our solar system.
You bet, but not to mention that it's rotation and revolution pattern is crazier.
Glad you asked. Mercury topography is covered in craters. It also has many ridges and terrains. Not to mention that there was once a period in time where Mercury had volcanoes!
That's awesome! What's Mercury like?
That's pretty crazy...
It takes about 59 earth days to spin on its axis once (day), and about 88 earth days to complete one orbit around the sun (year).
Well I don't think its impossible, but I think it would be pretty hot haha. Mercury's surface temperature can range from -280 degrees all the way up to 800 degrees Fahrenheit. This is possible because its located so close to the sun.
