The thermosphere is the "hottest" layer of the Earth's atmosphere. As the outermost layer with substantial numbers of molecules, it receives the most direct radiation from the Sun.

However, despite the high molecular temperatures measured there (over 1500°C) the actual energy per volume is very low. This layer, more than 80 kilometers in altitude, is practically a vacuum, and includes the orbits of most satellites and spacecraft.
