Waking up with an alarm clock hinders dream recall.

Based on research, waking up with the sound of an alarm clock instantly terminates sleep, affecting one’s consciousness and helping one to become more focused on the time of the day. These conditions of waking up make dream recall difficult and even impossible.


Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun, so it’s the hottest.

Distance from the Sun actually has little to do with the average temperature on a planet. Venus (the second planet from the Sun) is the hottest planet in the solar system, but that’s because of its atmosphere, which contains mostly carbon dioxide and some nitrogen, making it very thick.

Throughout the year the surface of Venus remains at a temperature of about 462°C. The surface of Mercury, on the other hand, has a lot of temperature variations. It can be as cold as -173°C at night, and during the day it might reach 427°C. Mercury has a very thin atmosphere, which is why there’s so much variation in temperature.
