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. 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.
“Don’t be fooled by the sparkling skies above.
“Those clouds are filled with silicate particles that would be deadly to breathe.”

It continued: “One side of this tidally-locked planet is in perpetual darkness, the other in blinding heat.
“Gloom lingers in the Twilight Zone where the two sides meet.”
Another shocking NASA discovery found “doomed” worlds orbiting an “undead star” in the “most inhospitable corner of the galaxy”.
PSR B1257+12 c, also named Poltergeist, is an extrasolar planet approximately 2,300 light-years away in the constellation of Virgo.
Kepler-70b is another 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.
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. In fact, the planet itself is evaporating, soon to be another victim.”
