Three DAYS and NIGHTS on MERCURY are EXACTLY equivalent, down to the last SECOND, to TWO YEARS on Earth!
For every TWO ORBITS around the Sun, Mercury only ROTATES three times!
A 3 to 2 Resonance....
Mercury is 3,032 miles in Diameter, just 1,000 miles or so larger than our Moon....
By DAY: 430 degrees celsius.
By NIGHT: -180 degrees celsius...
YET, people LIVE there!
