  Closest to the sun, Mercury is the smallest planet, with a diameter of about 4800km. It takes 88 days to orbit the sun. It rotates once on its axis during this orbit, and so, one side always faces the sun and the other side is always in darkness. The surface temperature ranges from -160° C up to 350° C.
