Voyage To The Planets: Mercury
Mercury
Season 1  |  Episode 5  |  ABC  |  June 10, 2010

Voyage To The Planets takes you on a tour into the solar system's Hot Zone to visit the two planets both laying claim to the title of 'Real Hell'. While tiny Mercury blisters in the roasting glare of the Sun, cross over to the dark side and you'll find the temperature plummets to 170 below. Back away from the Sun to cool off and we encounter Venus, our nearest neighbour. Smothered by a climate gone mad, a romantic visit to our sister planet's tortured scenery means diving into an atmosphere hot enough to melt lead.
