Mercury - the smallest planet in the solar system - is only a little larger than the moon and looks just as pitted. Just like the moon, Mercury has no atmosphere, no plants or animals, no volcanoes and no oceans. The Greeks named it after their messenger of the gods, Hermes, because it moves so swiftly across the sky. Later, the Romans changed the name to Mercury, and that is how we still call it today. Mercury is the planet that orbits the sun the fastest. It needs only 88 days for one orbit and covers an average of 48 kilometers in one second.
