The planet closest to the Sun, Mercury is the least visited planet in the inner Solar System. Since NASA was founded there have been only two major missions to study the planet. That's compared to 45 for the planet Mars.

They've just told us that a probe is being
sent to the sun...amazing...covered in special
tiles 5 inches thick to withstand the heat....
I thought to myself, to save all that, why don't
they just send the rocket at 'night'...! HeHe! :).

Is it because it’s too hot?
