Most Extreme Planets In The Galaxy

  • Published: 20 December 2018

    Humanity has long looked up into the night sky and wondered what all those twinkling lights above us really were. With the discovery of the telescope we began to identify these far-off lights as other suns, and soon mankind began to imagine what worlds may lie in the vast void of space. Could there possibly be worlds with life just like ours, or perhaps life that we might not even recognize- where there even planets around these far-off stars in the first place?
    It wasn't until 1988 that humanity discovered its first exoplanet, and with the launch of the Kepler space telescope not only have we confirmed the existence of exoplanets, but have discovered thousands of them, and some of them are truly like nothing anyone ever imagined!
    Hello and welcome to another episode of The Infographics Show- today we're taking a look at the most extreme planets discovered so far in our galaxy!

    CORRECTION: Venus is the hottest planet in our Solar System, not Mercury.

    Which planet from our list would you like to visit? Is there any other that interests you?

      I have a question. Doesn’t Jupiter have land? Isn’t it not all gas

      @Sir MetalVamp trust me when I say you dont want to visit jupiter. theres no land on that planet. It's all gas, so you would just fall infinitly and probably die xD

                        Scientists have reasons to name the planets and stars/star systems the way they do. They discover a lot of things in interstellar space, so obviously it's going to be hard to come up with a new, unique name without repeating one.

                          I thought Pluto was axed as a planet but then was decided to be returned to its classification of it being a planet. Ok I heard this but was it not true?

                            Additional information: It's not only NASA that looks for exoplanets. All space agency around the world are looking for it too. Even here in my country, Indonesia, all astronomer can do the observation them selves. It is not a hard work to do, if you know the science behind it

                                        It is crazy how they can't image the elusive planet 9 and barely can study Neptune but they can image huge galaxies millions of lightyears in distance. It shows one how huge some objects are in space.

                                                                        Also by examining light reflected from exoplanets we can infer how its atmosphere's made, and confidently predict what kind of weather it's got. So we do have some clue of what's on them.

                                                                        If by ''having a clue'' you mean ''knowing absolutely everything'' (which I believe that's what you mean), then...well, we'd have no clue about absolutely anything.
