Hi your question was which planet is heavily cratered?

My answer is: Neptune because it's the coldest planet and it is practically frozen therefore it is forever detiererating. So it has the most holes and craters.

Planet MERCURY is the most heavily cratered of the terrestrial planets.

The planet Mercury is heavily cratered due to impacts from celestial objects. It is a terrestrial planet that is also the smallest planet in the solar system.

Mercury is the most heavily cratered of the inner planets.

Mercury is the most cratered planet in the solar system.

All four inner planets have craters. Mercury is the most heavily cratered.

The most heavily cratered moon in the solar system is Callisto.

Mercury is heavily cratered because it has virtually no atmosphere and because the surface is geologically inactive, and has been for a protracted period. Without atmospheric weathering or geologic reworking of the surface, any craters become permanent features of the planet.

The moon that orbits farthest from its planet is Calisto. Calisto is also the most heavily cratered object in the entire solar system.

The planet Mercury has the most similar cratered surface compared to the moon.

heavily cratered, water ice surface

Callisto is heavily cratered and has a water ice surface

Mercury has no atmosphere, and its surface is heavily cratered much like Earth's moon. It is estimated that the planet has been geologically dormant for a few billion years.

Without an atmosphere to protect it from meteor impacts, the planet Mercury is heavily cratered. This includes the basin Caloris, which is a 1500-km wide impact crater with associated lava flows and crustal splitting.

Mercury looks like the Moon: it is heavily cratered with regions of smooth plains, has no natural satellites and no substantial atmosphere. However, unlike the moon, it has a large iron core.

The most terrestrial planet in our Solar System is Mercury as evidenced by Mariner 10 satellite that flew by Mercury 3 times during 1974 and 1975. A new satellite, Messenger, was launched in 2004 and will be orbiting Mercury next year.

Because Mercury lack of atmosphere

It Looks Like Our Moon Just 40% Bigger

Yes. Every physical object has physical properties. Mercury has a heavily cratered silicate crust, a large iron-nickel core, and very little atmosphere.

Many planets, but if you don't include pluto, Mercury is the main cratered planet

Yes, it is in fact the most heavily cratered moon of Uranus.

Because The Southern hemisphere is heavily cratered.

Cratered surfaces are a result of asteroid attacks on planet surfaces. Solar system as it appears is not a calm place.

It was protected from meteoric bombardment by some other body, or that it had undergone volcanic activity and was covered with a newer surface than elsewhere, or that there were fluids which smoothed out the craters.
