NASA shock: ‘Inferno’ alien planets burning at ’12,000 degrees’ in a ‘circle of hell'

The US space agency NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory released shocking details of exoplanet horrors. An exoplanet or extrasolar planet is a planet outside the Solar System. Kepler-70b is an exoplanet discovered orbiting the subdwarf B star Kepler-70. It is also the hottest known exoplanet as of mid-2017, with a surface temperature of several thousand Kelvin.

In a blog post, NASA wrote: “Kepler-70b (a.k.a. KOI-55) could well be another circle of hell with an average temperature hotter than the Sun’s surface.

“It used to be Jupiter-sized until it spent some time inside its now-dead star.

“This is a trip that destroys most planets, but left this one a Freddy Krueger-like burned world smaller than Earth.

“At about 12,000 degrees F (6,800 C), it is one of the hottest planets discovered.”

It added: “In fact, the planet itself is evaporating, soon to be another victim.”

HD 189733 b is another extrasolar planet, approximately 64.5 light-years away from the Solar System in the constellation of Vulpecula.

The planet was discovered orbiting the star HD 189733 A on October 5, 2005, when astronomers in France observed the planet transiting across the face of the star.

In a blog post, NASA wrote: “This far-off blue planet may look like a friendly haven – but don’t be deceived! Weather here is deadly.”

NASA released a video, styled as a nostalgic horror film trailer, showcasing the terrifying nature of this planet, along with other ones.

In the video, the voiceover says: “For eons, human beings have gazed up at its tranquil beauty, taking solace in the peaceful stillness of this vast and eternal cosmic cornucopia.

“And yet all the while, lurking beyond our solar system, among the billions of stars and the exoplanets that orbit them is another sort of Milky Way altogether.

“A far more sinister space, a place only sophisticated space telescopes and imaging processes can reveal, a place of unequaled terrors.”

Additionally, the video introduces “zombie worlds” that exist in the “most inhospitable corner of the galaxy”.
