Craters On The Moon

A vertical ‘sploosh’ results from an impact with an asteroid, with the earth rising at 1000 miles per hour to create mountains taller than Mt. Everest, only to instantly collapse due to continuous explosions, leaving behind a ring known as the ‘Peak Ring’.
The impact’s energy measurement is approximately 1,300,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 kilojoules for the size of a rock that can destroy our planet. The temperatures created on impact exceed that of the surface of the Sun.
The smallest planet in our solar system and nearerst to the Sun,
Mecury is only slightly larger than the Earth's Moon. From the surface of Mercury, the sun would appear more than three times as large as it does when viewed from Earth, and the sunlight would be as much as seven times brighter.
Despite its proximity to the Sun, Mercury is not the hottest planet in our solar system – that title belongs to nearby Venus, thanks to its dense atmosphere.
Mercury is the fastest planet, zipping around the Sun every 88 Earth days.
Mercury is appropriately named for the swiftest of the ancient Roman gods.
Mars was named by the ancient Romans for their god of war because its reddish color was reminiscent of blood.
Other civilizations also named the planet for this attribute; for example, the Egyptians called it "Her Desher," meaning "the red one." Even today, it is frequently called the "Red Planet" because iron minerals in the Martian dirt oxidize, or rust, causing the surface to look red.
