Caption: Surface of Mercury. Computer artwork of a rocky landscape on the surface of the planet Mercury. Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun, orbiting at an average distance of 58 million kilometres, less than half the Earth-Sun distance. The surface temperature extremes are the greatest in the solar system, ranging (day-night) from 400 to -170 degrees Celsius. A thin atmosphere is formed by the solar wind blasting material from its rocky surface.
