Mercury is a rocky planet has no atmosphere. It is the planet closest to sun and the smallest. Its diameter is 4,879 km, a similar size diameter of the moon. It may be that long ago would have been a natural satellite of Venus.

If Mercury before had been a satellite of Venus¿as it has become a planet? My theories:

1:can be super gravity of the sun was attracting mercury slowly and then attract both Mercury became a planet.

2: Another theory could be that an asteroid the size of Mars slammed into Mercury pushed him and the sun’s gravity pulled him and became a planet.

how much long survive on Mercury?

The temperature is very high in some areas that you burn and very low in other areas you freezing you.addition to Mercury as there is no oxygen atmosphere so no we would breathe and how people hold a maximum2 minutes without breathing that’s how long you’d survive on Mercury.

View the Sun from Mercury.

Since Mercury’d see the sun three times greater than from Earth. Why? Because the distance between Mercury and the Sun is 58,000,000 km and the distance between the Sun and the Earth is 149 million km (nearly 3 times) so you could better study the sun.

On Mercury seems that by the year It resizes the sun because Mercury’s orbit is an oval then sometimes the sun looks larger or smaller.

Mercury observation:
