Planet Mercury

Parent Category: The Solar System
The planet closest to the sun and the smallest one in our solar system.
god knows better :-P
To revolve around the sun, it takes 88 days. To rotate on its own  axis, it takes 58.6 days. One rotation takes 175.97 Earth  days
This tells you that, because Mercury is very cratered, it must have  no protection against the asteroids coming in. So, it is basically  telling you that Mercury has a very thin atmosphere
the planet that is being commited is the 10th Planet "Vulcan"
Mercury contains a solid, rocky landscape composed of numerous volcanoes, however it is so close to the Sun that you would most likely burn up before you reached the surface.
Mercury is definitely not perfectly round. All of our photos of  Mercury show that it's covered in craters which cause ridges to  form all over the planet. This means that it's not perfectly round.
No, one Mercury day is equal to 58.6 Earth days
The planet Mercury was named after an ancient god of Rome. The name  originally came from the Greek god who was known for his speed.
how does the planet mercury's spins?
The temperature of Mercury can reach up to 450 degrees C (840 degrees F) during the day. At night, the temperate can drop down to -170 degrees C (-275 degrees F).
At what distance from the Sun would a planet's orbital period be 3 million years?
No, Charon is not larger than Mercury. Its smaller than Pluto, and Pluto is smaller than Mercury.
No, but we have a satellite in orbit called Messenger and the Mariner made an early flyby in the 1970s and went into orbit around the Sun where it could continue to observe Mercury.
Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and maybe Pluto.... they aren't sure if it is a planet.
Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars.
yes. It will be destroyed by the sun because the sun is always getting bigger until it explodes in 5.4 billion years.
Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun. It is located between  28.5 million and 43.5 million miles form the Sun, depending on the  location of Mercury in its orbit.
No it doesnt!the reason behind this is that Murcury has no atmosphere so it is unable to hold any sort of gas.
The planet Mercury is gray-brown. It has a very thin atmosphere  that does not contribute to its coloring, and therefore all that is  seen is its surface.
Johann Schröter made observations of surface features, claiming to have observed 20 km high mountains
Venus has an atmosphere that is mostly carbon dioxide, which allows heat to enter, but not to leave. This is known as the greenhouse effect.Mercury is too small to have an atmosphere, and thus no greenhouse effect. Even though Mercury is much closer to the Sun, most of the heat radiates back out...
It takes Mercury just over 58 days to rotate on it's axis and 88 days to orbit the Sun
During the sunset or the sunrise for a brief amount of time.
LOL -- We'll have to dance slowly to answer this question.
no it does not
There are two spacecraft who tried to land on the planet mercury.The first of two spacecraft to visit the planet was Mariner 10 , which mapped only about 45% of the planet's surface from 1974 to 1975. The second is the MESSENGER spacecraft , which mapped another 30% during its flyby of January...
Mariner 10 found out that Mercury looked like the Moon. Also that Mercury is very hot during the day, but very cold at night!
The mass and diameter of the planet Mars is less that of Earth so  there are changes to how the gravity effects you. This would cause  a normally 150 pound person to only weigh 56 pounds on Mars.
There is alot less gravity then on earth.
Because Mercury lack of atmosphere
The atomic symbol for the element Mercury is Hg. This comes from  the Latin word hydrargyrum, which means liquid silver.
  mercury was named after the roman god of commerce and thievery, because it quickly appears and dissapears from our view.
Before 24 August 2006, it was Pluto that was the smallest planet of our solar system. Because the definition of a planet was changed on that date, the smallest planet is Mercury at 5,5% of Earth's mass.
Why is it cooler to sit behind an umbrella on the beach one a Sunny day as apposed to sitting in the sun light? The same reason the back side of Mercury is cooler, it's not in the direct radiant energy of the sun so it's cooler.
Mercury: In Roman mythology the herald and messenger of the gods, god of commerce ( trade), eloquence, (speaking poshly) travellers, merchants and thieves.
mercury is the first planet in the solar system with the shortest year and the longest day. the temperatures here are incredibly extreme and so it cannot support life. moreover, it has a very thin atmosphere which allows radiations, both harmful and useful, to pass through it. if any creature can...
the fuel reset switch is located in the truck of the car, drivers side (left side) behind the trunk side cover, you have to remove the carpeted cover to access the relay reset (theres a red button on top)
mercury because it is the closest to the sun
The revolution of Mercury is 88 days, and its rotaion is about 58.6 days.
Venus comes after Mercury.
78 hours 87 earth days
Mercury is an element, so it can only be broken down further into subatomic particles (proton, electron and neutron).
    The surface area of the planet Mercury is about 74,800,000 km2 or about 10% the surface area of the Earth.      
i need help with one too haha! i don't know what I should put though. I have seen some and one said like "Mercury, so hot u could get a tan!" or something idk. Do u have one or anyone else? maybe you could put, "Mercury, Fry eggs on the floor!!" that's pretty old XD
  There are 449680 earth days in one Mercury year.   From 3limes
There isn't a whole lot going on in the atmosphere of Mercury. It was unclear if Mercury actually had an atmosphere or not until '74 when Mariner 10 discovered an exosphere (an extremely thin atmosphere) around Mercury. Some of the elements that are in this exosphere are hydrogen, helium, oxygen,...
Nothing is special about Mercury. It is too close to the sun and it is too hot.
How many number of satelites in mercury?
If you weigh 1,001 lbs on Earth you would weigh 378.3 lbs on Mercury.
Distance is not a measurement of temperature. Or did you maybe mean "difference' in temperature?
It may have captured or formed moons in the distant past, but none remain. The closeness of Mercury's orbit to the Sun would likely prevent moons from maintaining a stable orbit.
29.6 miles per second.
Both the planet Mercury and the chemical mercury - also written as  Hg - are named after the Roman god Mercury (latin: Mercurius),  known for speed and mobility. The chemical is only named after the  god. Humans mine mercury ore on Earth, not from the planet Mercury.
  Neptune is almost 79 times further away from the Sun than Mercury.
Planet Mercury is to close to the sun.
Mercury does have gravity, but it has much less than the Earth.  Mercury has relatively low gravity due to its relatively small  mass.
At its closest, Venus is 23.7 million miles away and at its  farthest, it is 162 million miles away. It would take between 2 and  15 light minutes to reach Venus form Earth.
mercury has no atmosphere which means it is nothing like earths.
really hot compared to earth. 800 degrees is the hottest -300 degrees is the lowest
There are no seasons on Mercury.Mercury has a very slight axial tilt to the plane of its orbit, about 2° compared to about 23.5° for Earth. So there would be extremely little seasonal change. However, Mercury also has no real atmosphere. And most places on the surface experience 88 Earth days of...
The length of day on Mercury is 58.646 Earth days. That's the rotation time,which is the sidereal day, but there's also the solar day.The solar day on Mercury is 176 Earth days.
None the hottest planet is 450 degrees Celsius and that is Mercury  the one closest to the sun.
the mercury the greek of "melcules"meaning innermost to the sun
In 2006 Pluto was degraded to the status of dwarf planet (there is another dwarf planet, Eris, that is more massive than Pluto).
Your mom, naww i just kiding its bumpy and has crators in it
If no one receives the message twice, it will have to be passed on through 6 cycles, after which 1 111 111 people will be in the know. In the real world, people are bound to receive it repeatedly, so that more iterations are required. The maths governing this more realistic model will be complex,...
They both are inner planets!..... Here is a little saying to remember.....:My(Mars)Very(venus) Eager(earth)Mother(mercury)J(jupiter)S(saturn)U(uranus)N(neptune)....(:
The sun is the closest star to our planet.that is why it looks so big.
mercury has no rings
It has none because it is to close too the sun so it does not have enough atmosphere
Mercurys size is very big it is 444,888
Mercury, Mars, Venus, Earth, Neptune, Uranus, Saturn, Jupiter
U wud weight less x coz not much gravitational force x
No. Quite the opposite actually. Mercury has a rocky surface and  almost no atmosphere.
