The most bizarre exoplanets: Godzilla Earth and volcanic hell

“Godzilla Earth”: Kepler-10c volume is 2.3 times that of Earth, is 17 times the mass of Earth. The planet Kepler 10b and Kepler 10 stars surrounding the run, the star 570 light-years from Earth.

“Godzilla Earth”: Kepler-10c volume is 2.3 times that of Earth, is 17 times the mass of Earth. The planet Kepler 10b and Kepler 10 stars surrounding the run, the star 570 light-years from Earth.

Volcano Hell: CoRoT-7b is’s first confirmed extrasolar rocky planets, but it is not suitable for life to survive, daytime surface temperatures up to 2200 degrees Celsius, the night temperatures drop to minus 210 degrees Celsius. Because of the planet’s atmosphere is composed of rock vapor, rain often falling rocks from the sky, while the surface of the planet over the violent eruption of the volcano.

Approximate mass of Earth gaseous planets: This is the artist depicted KOI-314c, it is the lightest exoplanet so scientists surprise, although the weight of the planet similar to Earth, but was 60% larger in diameter, meaning it has a very dense gaseous atmosphere, it is surrounded by a dim red dwarf star running about 200 light years from Earth.

Former smallest exoplanets: Gliese 581 e is the smallest exoplanets found before, in January 2011, scientists announced that Kepler 10b replace Gliese 581 e.

Largest exoplanet: TrES-4 is the largest ever discovered exoplanet, extrasolar planets is one of the most bizarre, in theory, it should not exist. The volume of the planet is 1.7 times that of Jupiter, its density is very low, 1,400 light years from Earth, running around the main star is only 3.5 days a week.

Nearest extrasolar planet Earth: orange sun-like stars surround a running Epsilon Eridani b only 10.5 light-years from Earth, it is by far the telescope observations of extrasolar planets recently, I believe it will soon be able to shoot. Its orbit and the stars keep far enough away not to have liquid water, but scientists predict that the planetary system suitable for extraterrestrial life on other planets may survive.

Smallest exoplanets: This is the artist depicts the Kepler 10b, 2011 January astronomers announced the discovery this is by far the smallest exoplanets, Fengyun surface of the planet is covered with lava.

“Tatooine” planet: science fiction movie “Star Wars” planet Tatooine there two “sun”, astronomers found a similar exoplanets –HD 188753 Ab, it is 149 light years from Earth, has three “sun”, the quality of which the main star is close to the sun. This system is known as the Samsung HD 188753, HD 188753 Ab is likely very hot, very close to its parent star orbit around run one week only 3.5 days.

Farthest from Earth, the coldest planets: OGLE-2005-BLG-390L b is likely to be the coldest planet ever found, only the surface temperature of minus 220 degrees Celsius. Its mass is about 5.5 times that of Earth, is considered rocky, it is surrounded by a red dwarf star running 28,000 light years from Earth, is the most distant ever discovered exoplanets.

The hottest planet: WASP-12b is the hottest planet ever found, the surface temperature can reach 22 degrees Celsius, with the track from the main stars are closer than any known planet, surrounded by only 3.4 million kilometers away from the main stellar run, quite to two percent of the distance between Earth and the sun. This is a gaseous planet, about 1.5 times the mass of Jupiter, the volume is twice that, 870 light years from Earth.
