  1. FACT 1: Mercury has no atmosphere. Because of this, the temperature (over 400 degrees Celsius at daytime) plummets to -180 degrees Celsius. This is because there is no atmosphere to hold heat in. Also, there is no wind and weather on Mercury.

    FACT 2: Even though Mercury is closer to the sun, Venus is the hottest planet in the solar system at about 500 degrees Celsius. It’s atmosphere traps heat inside, and the surface if full of active volcanoes.

    FACT 3: Mars has many massive volcanoes and is home to Olympus Mons, the largest volcano in our solar system, it stands 21km high and is 600km across the base.

    FACT 4: Since Uranus takes 84 Earth years to go around the sun, this means that each of its poles is in daylight for 42 years and in darkness for the next 42.

    1. Thanks, but it’ll be a while before I continue to post anything for the trivia (need to find a way to make it look god).

      EDIT: Look good… He he he

    2. Fact 2 is funny. It’s like saying.
      Venus: How hot are you?
      Mercury: About 400, you?
      Venus: (chuckles) Not even good enough my friend. I’m about 500.

      PS. I’m probably the only person who would transform the fact to a dialogue between talking planets.
