History of Mercury
Distance from earth and sun (KM)
Special features
Can humans land or live on Mercury?
Interesting Facts
Mercury is grey like the moon. The temperature there is from -173 - 427°C. Mercury is made out of rocks with a core like the moon. Mercury orbits closest to the sun. It is the smallest planet in the solar system. scientists can only see Mercury at twilight when the sun is just below the horizon. Barely anything was known about Mercury until the american mariner 10 (spacecraft) reached mercury and discovered it in 2008. Also Mercury takes 88 earth days to make a complete orbit around the sun.
Thank you for watching our presentation on Mercury
Mercury is the planet in our solar system that is closest to the sun. It is also the smallest planet in the solar system. Mercury has no moons, no rings, and Mercury has no light of it's own, but it does reflect sunlight.
Humans cannot land or live on Mercury because it is always to hot and to cold because only one side faces the sun and the other side is all. Mercury has been visited by a space craft although the space craft did not actually land.
1. Mercury is the smallest planet in the solar system.
2. There is no moons in Mercury
3. Although Mercury is closest to the sun there is only a bit of sun (horizon)
4.The surface of Mercury is very similar to our moon.
5. There is no water on the surface of Mercury, it is possible however that there could be water underneath the surface.
6. There is no air on the surface but it could be trapped underneath.
7. There might be ice on Mercury
8. The orbit of Mercury helped prove Einstein’s theories of relativity

A bit more about Mercury!!!
A piece of Mercury
In the solar system Earth is the third planet from the sun, behind Mercury the 1st and Venus the second planet from the sun.Mercury has a distance of 149,600,000 km and (.387 AU) from the sun. The surface area of the earth is 510,072,000 0. 0.. The age of the earth is 4.54 billion also the population of earth is 7.046 billion. The surface temperature of the sun is 5,778. The distance from Mercury to Earth is77,300,000 and in A.U IS 0.5167.

Mercury the god
Distance between mercury and the other planets
Mercury and Venus : 0.33 a.u
Mercury and Earth : 0.61 a.u
Mercury and Mars : 1.13 a.u
Mercury and Jupiter: 4.81 a.u
Mercury and Saturn: 9.15 a.u
Mercury and Uranus: 18.75 a.u
Mercury and Neptune: 29.67 a.u
The diameter of Mercury is 4878 km which is comparable to the size of the U.S.A. The surface area is 7.48 x 10 km squared. mercury's volume is 6.083 x 10 km cubed. The mass of mercury is 3.3022 x 10 kg. Mercury is the closest planet to the sun and is one of the smallest planets in our solar system. It is actually the smallest planet in our solar system not including the moon or Pluto. when you compare mercury to the sun, it just looks like a star. Compared to Jupiter it looks like a pebble stilling next to bolder. When compared to earth it look like Pluto when compared to mercury. In A.U’s or Astronomical Units mercury has a diameter of .39 Mercury is the smallest of the eight planets in our solar system. It is only a little bigger than Earth's moon. It would take more than 18 Mercury's to be as big as Earth. If you could weigh Mercury and the moon, Mercury would weigh much more. Mercury has a rocky surface, but deep inside is a heavier material, which is probably iron. The mantel of Mercury is 600 km and the Nucleus is 1,800 km.
