Magma oceans, supersonic winds, scorching hot days, and instead of rain, a bunch of rocks falling on your head. Just another one of those days, huh? Astronomers recently discovered a new “Super Planet” out there. It’s an exoplanet that’s around 200 light-years away.
An exoplanet is just a fancy way of saying that the planet orbits its own star in another solar system. So what makes this planet so scary?
Picture our beautiful little blue planet Earth. Now imagine that all the volcanos in the world suddenly erupted at the same time, and lava covered the oceans and seas. Fiery hurricanes thousands of times faster than normal blow all over the place, 24-7.
And it starts raining rocks every now and again. This scary planet came into our lives about 2 years ago. Scientists are still studying it. Let’s find out more about one of the weirdest planets ever discovered.
