Scientists Want to Land on Mercury, Here's Why That's Tricky

NASA and Johns Hopkins scientists really, really want to send a lander to Mercury????but what would it take to land on the smallest planet in our solar system?????NASA decided it was too challenging to send a lander to Mercury in 2010????That’s because of the extreme hot and cold temperatures of the innermost planet????and we would need three rockets to reach Mercury, a trip that takes up to 7 years????Scientists think new tech would get us there, like SpaceX’s powerful Falcon Heavy Rocket????Technology used on the Parker Solar Probe to manage the sun’s heat would help too????The team submitted a Mercury lander proposal, which still needs NASA approval??
