Rasoom (known to Earthmen as Mercury) is the first planet in the Solar System. Due to its heat and the distance from both Earth and Mars, no one has ever been known to visit Rasoom. Barsoomian scientists used their technology to learn about the intelligent life on distant planets, but of Rasoom, all that has been learned is that the people there "are of extreme refinement, power, and flexibility."
