Mercury is an extreme planet in several respects. Because of its nearness to the Sun—its average orbital distance is 58 million km (36 million miles)—it has the shortest year (a revolution period of 88 days) and receives the most intense solar radiation of all the planets.
Which planets have the longest and shortest years?
Which planet has the longest day and the shortest year? The answer to both questions is Mercury. It orbits the Sun every 88 days, and a Solar Day on Mercury lasts for two orbits which is 176 days.
Which planet has the longest day?
So, Venus has the longest day of any planet in our solar system. It completes one rotation every 243 Earth days. Its day lasts longer than its orbit. It orbits the Sun every 224.65 Earth days, so a day is nearly 20 Earth days longer than its year.
Which planet has shortest day?
The planet Jupiter has the shortest day of all the eight major planets in the Solar System. It spins around on its axis once every 9 hr 55 min 29.69 sec. Jupiter has a small axial tilt of only 3.13 degrees, meaning it has little seasonal variation during its 11.86-year-long orbit of the Sun.

Is there a 9 planet?
The order of the planets in the solar system, starting nearest the sun and working outward is the following: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and then the possible Planet Nine. If you insist on including Pluto, it would come after Neptune on the list.
What is the smoothest planet?
Jupiter’s large icy moon Europa has the smoothest surface of any solid body in the Solar System. The only prominent relief on its surface are ridges a few hundred metres in height.
How long is 1 hour in space?
1 hour in space is 7 years on earth.
What planet is the hottest?
Venus is the exception, as its proximity to the Sun and dense atmosphere make it our solar system’s hottest planet. The average temperatures of planets in our solar system are: Mercury – 800°F (430°C) during the day, -290°F (-180°C) at night. Venus – 880°F (471°C)
What planet is 1 day 59 Earth days?
Mercury spins slowly compared to Earth, so one day lasts a long time. Mercury takes 59 Earth days to make one full rotation. But a year on Mercury goes fast. Because it’s the closest planet to the sun, it goes around the Sun in just 88 Earth days.
What planet has many rings?
Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second largest planet in our solar system. Adorned with a dazzling system of icy rings, Saturn is unique among the planets.

What planet is closest to the sun?
Mercury—the smallest planet in our solar system and closest to the Sun—is only slightly larger than Earth’s Moon. Mercury is the fastest planet, zipping around the Sun every 88 Earth days.
What planet takes 7 years to get to?

What is my age on Mars?
A year on Mars is longer than a year on Earth—almost twice as long at 687 days. This is roughly 1.88 times the length of a year on Earth, so to calculate your age on Mars we simply have to divide your Earth age by 1.88.
Do you age slower on Mars?
1 Answer. Short answer: Most likely not, but we don’t really know. There are theories about how gravity affects the physiology of our body, and we know what aspects get affected by lack of gravity. The overwhelming majority of effects noted due to low gravity are negative.
