    How does a rock fly off a planet into space and land on another? I've yet to see a rock fly off planet Earth.

    I don't know if it's possible but a massive meteorite impact or phreatic eruption might be able to chuck a rock into space.

    Mercury is small and has no atmosphere, so chunks can get knocked off of it way easier than here on Earth where stuff burns up in the air before reaching the ground.
