Top Ten Facts About the Planet Mercury
The Top Ten
I learned this from a Dr. Amy Mainzer interstitial. I don't watch RJG to learn things, but occasionally they will teach things that I never knew. On Mercury, you could celebrate your birthday every 2-3 months.
Hmm, I wonder who did.
Mercury is closer to the Sun but Venus is the hottest planet. This excerpt from a RJG song will help you understand:
"But that atmosphere's like a greenhouse
That traps all the sun's heat in
And those clouds of carbon dioxide make Venus!
Earth's broiling hot twin! "
Well, obviously. Only the outer planets have rings, and they have way more moons. Earth only has one moon, while Mars has two, and Mercury and Venus have none.
Mercury has only 38% of the gravity on Earth. Mercury isn’t able to hold the atmosphere it has and it instead gets blown away by solar winds.
Many of Mercury's craters are named after famous writers and artists.
