But still Mercury and Venus in our solar systm posses no moons revolving around them.

 BLACK HOLE can torn a STAR if it much close to it.

facts about space

A team of astronauts from our world were observing a star. It was revolving around a Black Hole. Black Hole, situated at the centre of our galaxy.

However, the star has got a lot closer to the black. That it will lose its light and energy if it catches black hole.

VENUS is the HOTTEST Planet in our Solar System

facts about space

Most of the people think that the hottest planet is Mercury. This is because it is the closest planet to the sun.

However, the story changes when you get to know that Venus is the hottest Planet in our Solar System.

Venus has a lot of gases in his atmosphere, this creates a Greenhouse Effect. Also this causes the temperature to rise at 462 Degree Celsius (862 Degree Fahrenheit)

Therefore, this is the main reason why Venus is the most hottest planet in our solar system.
