10 Most TERRIFYING Planets in the Universe
The fact that conditions on earth are habitableis really nothing more than a cosmic fluke i mean most planets are completely unsuitablefor nurturing life but some have conditions that are outright terrifying welcome to phenomenaland in this video we'll be going through some of the planets with the harshest conditions hereare the 10 most terrifying planets ever discovered let's start with a planet everyone should befamiliar with one that resides within our own solar system venus venus is essentially earth'sevil twin it's roughly the same size as our planet and is made up of very similar rocky layers but ithas a terrifyingly harsh environment the mass of its atmosphere is approximately 92 times thatof earth's as is the pressure at its surface meaning it has an atmospheric pressureroughly equivalent to that at a depth .
Of nearly one kilometer under earth'soceans the surface is like a hellish nightmare scape where temperatures reach 860degrees fahrenheit and the air itself could cause lead to melt and break human bonesand it rained huge blobs of sulfuric acid at higher levels the peaks of venus's mountainsare covered with layers of heavy metal frost and 200 mile per hour winds blow clouds ofsulfuric acid across the sky that's filled with carbon dioxide suffice to say that earth isdefinitely the good twin in this planetary sibling ship now around 489 light years from earth corot7b is an exoplanet which orbits the star corot7 in constellation monoceros discovered in 2009 theplanet is believed to have formed as a gas giant 100 times larger than earth but as it migratedcloser to its star the gas shed until all that .
Remained was a rocky core corot 7b star is60 times closer to it than we are to our sun meaning it looks 360 times larger in the skythan our sun looks to us now because of this on its day side the planet can reach a horrifying4 700 degrees fahrenheit which is hot enough to completely vaporize rock and during colderfronts condensation causes pebbles to form which means it literally starts to rain rockstheoretical models have also suggested that the planet has boiling oceans and a whole lot oflava flowing on it terrifyingly the other half of the planet is unimaginably cold and can reachtemperatures of minus 392 degrees fahrenheit meaning it essentially has differentversions of hell on either side release 436b which is also simply known asgj436b is a planet that lies around 30 light .
Years from earth it is one of the weirdest andmost contradictory planets in the known universe existing a mere 2.5 million miles from its starits temperature is approximately 822 degrees fahrenheit which it goes without saying shouldbe hot enough to evaporate water however the planet's water remains in solid form gj436b is aplanet of burning ice this ice is very different to the kind we're familiar with here on earth andit goes by the name of i7 i7 has a denser and more crystalline structure than normal ice and it'sbelieved it formed due to the strong gravitational force at gj436b's core another major contradictionin this bizarre world is that there should be high levels of methane due to the outer layer ofhydrogen and helium but there's actually around 7000 times less methane than expected and thereare huge quantities of carbon monoxide instead .
We're heading back into our own solar systemnow and this time it's to talk about the largest planet in it jupiter you may have never seenjupiter as having been presented as a terrifying place to be but just think about it for a momentnot only is it teeming with poisonous gases it also has an average temperature of minus 234degrees fahrenheit and a surface gravity 2.4 times that of what's on earth additionally there arestorms on jupiter that are twice as wide as the earth itself they generate winds up to 400 milesper hour and lightning boats that are 100 times brighter and more potent than anything seenon our planet terrifyingly beneath jupiter's surface there's a endless abyss in the form of a25 000 mile deep ocean of liquid metallic hydrogen which conducts both electricity and heat theplanet jensen which is also known as 55 cancri e .
Is a planet around 40 light years away with adiameter about twice the size of earth its most well known property is that it's one-third diamondwhich is believed to be due to the fact that its atmosphere is predominantly carbon that amount ofdiamond would be valued at around 26.99 here on earth for reference one nunilian is one followedby 30 zeros jensen is a tidally locked planet with one side facing the sun and the other sideexisting in a state of constant sheer blackness water on jensen exists in a supercritical statesomewhere between liquid and gas as the planet's close proximity to its star means it cannotexist as pure liquid with the hot side of the planet reaching 4 000 degrees fahrenheit and theother side being totally dark and freezing cold jensen is completely uninhabitable what's moresuperheated hydrogen cyanide has been detected .
Spewing out from beneath the planet's surfacemaking it even more hazardous than it already is the gas giant hd1897 is about 63 light years awayfrom earth and astronomers have discovered that it's home to one of the most extraordinaryand terrifying space storms in the universe the planet's atmosphere is generally composedof oxygen and hydrogen water vapor methane and a little carbon dioxide but in the higher reachesof the atmosphere things get a little more scary magnesium silicate condenses into moltenglass raindrops which gives the planets its aesthetically pleasing deep blue coloringbut also results in molds and glass being hurled around the planet by a powerful even supersonicwind while there are no exact figures on how fast those winds are they're believed to blow at upto 4 500 miles per hour seven times the speed of .
Sound the planet is also tidally locked to itsstar which creates a permanently heated dayside and a side of perpetual night but thanks to thepowerful wind spreading heat around the planet even the night side has an averagetemperature of about 1200 degrees fahrenheit so just imagine how hot the day site is butthe fact is the most horrifying aspect of this planet is its reign of terror through ahot glass filled gale raging into the darkness hd80606b is approximately 190 light years fromearth and it orbits a star in a binary system it's a gas giant about four times the size ofjupiter and it moves around its parent star in an elongated and uneven manner similar to how a cometmoves rather than what you'd expect from a planet that orbit takes the planet 79 million milesout into its solar system but when it's at the .
Point nearest to its star that's when things getterrifying every 111 days hd 80606 star is just 2.8 million miles away at which point the planetdramatically heats up resulting in the atmosphere exploding into a hellish and frenetic storm thetemperature increases from 980 degrees fahrenheit to 2240 degrees fahrenheit in just six hoursresulting in what astronomer greg laughlin calls quote one of the fiercest storms of the galaxywinds can reach a devastating 11 000 miles per hour and in 2009 astronomers were able to witnessit in real time using nasa's spitzer telescope they said they could almost hear thewind shrieking as they watched on in all ultra hot jupiter type exoplanet kelt9b is the hottest exoplanet known to man in fact it's so blisteringly hot that itstemperature even surpasses those of many stars .
Residing 670 light years from earth kelt 9b orbitsso close to its sun that its surface can reach an almost unfathomable 772 degrees fahrenheit to putinto perspective just how hot that is it is so hot that the planet has atomic iron and titaniumin its atmosphere researchers have utilized data from the spitzer space telescope to cometo the conclusion that the extreme temperatures on the planet's dayside cause molecules ofhydrogen gas to tear apart the molecules then assemble when they flow to the night site which isrelatively cooler before being ripped apart again when they move back into the furnacethose are definitely some harsh conditions kepler-78b is an exoplanet orbiting the star knownas kepler-78 at the time of its discovery back in 2010 it was the exoplanet most similar to our ownearth in terms of its mass radius and mean density .
Moreover it's roughly the same size of earthand also has an iron core so in theory doesn't that mean it should be somewhere humans could liveone day well the simple answer is absolutely not kepler-78b is an incomprehensibly hot world wherethe temperature reaches 3700 degrees fahrenheit due to the fact that its solar orbit is around40 times closer to its star than mercury is to the sun it's also absolutely teeming withpools of boiling hot lava scientists don't even believe a hellish planet like this shouldexist and rather bizarrely there is actually no known planetary evolution or scientificexplanation that explains this phenomenon wasp 12b is a dark and doomed planet thatis believed to only have another 10 million years or so left to live it is literallybeing torn apart and consumed by its sun .
At a rate of around 189 quadrillion tons eachyear and the process is resulting in it being physically stretched out into an elongatedshape that is very unusual for a planet but rather interestingly wasp-12b sunisn't the only thing doing the consuming the planet itself possesses a unique trait wherebyinstead of reflecting light it actually absorbs 94 percent of it which results in it being dark toan eerie otherworldly and almost impossible extent it has been described as being quite literallypitch black as well as being as black as asphalt when you combine that darkness with its inevitabledemise and the not too distant by cosmic standards future it's definitely not the kind of placeany living thing would want to find themselves that's a wrap for the 10 most terrifying planetsever discovered if you enjoyed this video make .
