    Jupiter and Mercury are both named after Roman gods. Jupiter is named after the king of the gods and Mercury is named after the messenger god.

Mercury and Jupiter’s names are for a reason. Mercury and Jupiter both fit very cohesively into solar system. For example, both planets have their own spot in the order from the sun. Mercury is the first closest to the sun and Jupiter is the fifth closest. This makes Mercury an inner planet and Jupiter an outer planet. Mercury, being the closest to the sun, is only 0.39 Astronomical Units, or 58,500,000 Kilometers. On the other hand, Jupiter is 5.20 Astronomical Units from the sun, or 780,000,000 Kilometers. As you can see, Mercury is much closer to the sun, but it orbits the sun a lot slower; Mercury takes 87.97 earth days to orbit the sun. Meanwhile, it takes…
