Mercury is not the hottest, it is also not the closest in our solar system. It is closest to the sun, but not the closest from our point.

Mercury isn't the hottest, it is actually Venus.

Mercury isn’t the hottest planet. It’s actually Jupiter. Mercury is 800 degrees fahrenheit, and parts of Jupiter are over 1,000 degrees.

In the solar system, Mercury is the smallest planet. It was discovered as a planet in 1643 by a model published by Copernicus. Out of all of the other planets in the solar system, it has the shortest orbital system around the Sun, only taking 87 days. This makes Mercury closer to the Sun than the others. It is also the second densest planet, after Earth.

Its density is due to the fact that it is composed of metals and rock. Along with being dense, Mercury is the second hottest planet, behind Venus. Its high temperature is because there is no regulation of temperature due to the world having no atmosphere.
