5. Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun so it should be the hottest planet in our solar system. This is wrong. The fact is that Mercury does not have any atmosphere that means it is only hot during the day time when temperature reaches 425 degree Celsius but in the night the temperature drops to -180°C. This is one of the most surprizing space facts that Venus is the hottest planet in our solar system. The reason is that the thick clouds on the Venus trap the Sun’s heat causing the temperature of the planet 500 degree Celsius all the time.
