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. TrEs-2b is an extrasolar planet identified in 2011 as the darkest known exoplanet, reflecting less than one percent of any light that hits it.
In a blog post, NASA wrote: “TrEs-2b is the planet of eternal night.
“The darkest planet ever discovered orbiting a star, this alien world is less reflective than coal.
“Inside its atmosphere, you’d be flying blind in the dark.
“Some scientists think an eerie deep red glow would emanate from its burning atmosphere. The air of this planet is as hot as lava.”
Another shocking NASA discovery found a real-life “Twilight Zone” where “one side is in perpetual darkness” and “the other in blinding heat”.
55 Cancri e is an exoplanet in the orbit of its Sun-like host star 55 Cancri A.
In a blog post, NASA wrote: “Imagine a never-ending ocean of boiling lava.
“That’s the entire surface of 55 Cancri e.”
The post added: “Gloom lingers in the Twilight Zone where the two sides meet.”
PSR B1257+12 c, also named Poltergeist, is another extrasolar planet approximately 2,300 light-years away in the constellation of Virgo.
NASA wrote: “These doomed worlds were among the first and creepiest to be discovered as they orbit an undead star known as a pulsar.
“Pulsar planets like Poltergeist and its neighbouring worlds, Phobetor and Draugr, are consumed with constant radiation from the star’s core.
“Nothing but the undead can subsist in this most inhospitable corner of the galaxy.”
