### Upper Elementary Science - I3.8 Planet Mercury - The Smallest Planet

 In mythology, Mercury was a Roman God. He was the messenger for the other gods, and for this reason Mercury is often shown in pictures with winged sandals. In addition to delivering messages, he was also the protector of travelers, and merchants. How much would you weigh on Mercury? If you moved to Mercury you would not weigh as much as you do on Earth. Not because you would lose weight on the space ship, but because Mercury is smaller, and so has less gravity. If you weigh 70 pounds on Earth, you would weigh only about 27 pounds on Mercury. Mercury is a world of extremes. Because it is so close to the Sun, a visitor could easily cook to death. However because mercury spins so slowly it gets very cold in the night time, which means a visitor could also freeze to death. Mercury has no moons. Directions: Answer the following questions.
