Meet the 7 Extreme Planets Ever Discovered

Researchers have some interesting facts about our solar system. Check out the list of seven most extreme planets in our solar system here.


While we continue with our space explorations to locate fascinating space objects and planets outside our solar system, researchers have found out some interesting facts about the planets in our solar system. Here are seven of the most extraordinary.

The Hottest

The hotness of a planet depends fundamentally on its closeness to its host star – and on how hot that star burns. In our solar system, Mercury is the nearest planet to the sun at a mean separation of 57,910,000km. Temperatures on its dayside reach around 430°C, while the sun itself has a surface temperature of 5,500°C. Be that as it may, stars bigger than the sun burn hotter.

The Coldest

At a temperature of only 50 degrees above outright zero – – 223°C – OGLE-2005-BLG-390Lb grabs the title of the coldest planet. At around 5.5 times the Earth’s mass it is probably going to be a rough planet as well. Despite the fact that not very removed from its host star at an orbit that would put it somewhere close to Mars and Jupiter in our nearby planetary group, its host star is a low-mass, cool star known as a dwarf planet.

The Biggest

On the off chance that a planet can be as hot as a star, then how can we tell them apart? Stars are quite a lot bigger than planets that they are formed by fusion processes thus of the enormous gravitational powers in their centers. Most stars like our sunburn by fusing hydrogen into helium. Be that as it may, there is a type of star called brown dwarf, which are sufficiently huge to begin fusion process however not sufficiently huge to manage them.

The Smallest

Just somewhat bigger than our moon and smaller than Mercury, Kepler-37b is the littlest exoplanet to be ever discovered. A rough world, it is nearer to its host star than Mercury is to the sun. That implies the planet is excessively hot, making it impossible to bolster fluid water and henceforth life on its surface.

The Oldest

PSR B1620-26 b, at 12.7 billion years, is the most seasoned known planet. A gas mammoth 2.5 times the mass of Jupiter has been appearing around almost since the very beginning. Our universe at 13.8 billion years is just a billion years older than the planet.

The Youngest

The planetary framework V830 Tauri is just 2m years of age. The host star has an indistinguishable mass from our sun yet double the span, which implies it has not completely attained its final shape yet. The planet – a gas monster with seventy-five percent the mass of Jupiter – is still developing. That implies it is getting more mass by habitually slamming into other planetary bodies like space rocks in its way – making it a perilous place to be.

The Worst Weather

Venus reportedly has the worst weather. The atmosphere moves around the planet much faster the planet’s rotation and the winds blow at a speed of 360km/h. Over 95% of the atmosphere comprises carbon dioxide and the greenhouse effect scales the temperature to 462 degree Celsius which is far too hotter than Mercury.
