Named after the messenger of the Roman Gods, Mercury is one of the most distinct planets in the solar system, experiencing rapidly changing temperatures as it orbits around the sun.
The smallest of all planets in space, it is said that Mercury was formed around 4.5 billion years ago when the natural force of gravity merged swirling gas and dust together to form the tiny planet – it is predicted that a huge collision with another giant object destroyed a large proportion of its surface mass.
Due to its extreme temperatures and volatile climate, it is unlikely that life would survive on Mercury, however, the European Space Agency in 2018 launched mission BepiColombo to land two satellites on the planet in order to conduct further investigations into the composition of the planet and its history.
