Top 10 Record Shattering alien Planets

Scientists have been making their discoveries of stars and planets in the universe every now and then. Our solar system is vast, placed in a bigger sized white galaxy in the vast universe, which makes it almost impossible for us to know and be aware of every star and planet which exists in the same universe as we live in. scientists have always been in the process since decades now to be able to identify and discover new stars and planets, as there is way too much to be known about the universe and the solar system. Some of these discovered planets might or may not come of any use to us Earthlings, yet just knowing and getting aware of certain peculiar things about these planets is extremely fascinating with surprising facts. Every planet is different from the other. With every new planets come new facts and new stories revealed connecting to the vast universe we stay in. for scientists, studying these planets not only help them build up their knowledge more about the solar system, but also helps them find the usability, their existence and the life support or the kind of living organisms which could perhaps be inhibiting that particular planet, thus serving as a support for science and astronomy in general. Here is a list of the top 10 record breaking shattering alien planets, amongst all the others that have been found and discovered.

1. Fomalhault B, The Zombie Planet


Stranger than its name, this planet is equally bizarre in its orbital movement, thus claiming to have the weirdest orbit in the whole of the universe. Born out of dust and dead which is also why it’s called the Zombie Planet, the planet also orbits in a zigzag manner and no one really knows why. This zigzag movement of the planet is why it is called a Zombie Planet as it tends to move like zombie in a strange and haywire manner, the exact reason for which is still unknown.

2. TrES-2b


The TrES-2b is known to be the darkest planet known in the universe, which is even darker than the darkest planet of our solar system, the Mercury. While Mercury reflects about 10 percent of the Sun’s light, this darkest planet reflects less than one percent of the light from its star, thus making this planet as dark and less reflective as coal or black acrylic paint.

3. KOI-314c


This planet is known to be the lightest planet in our universe. Having the same mass density as Earth, due to its large content of hydrogen and helium this planet is almost 60 percent larger than Earth. This planet was compared to its neighboring planet known as KOI-314b and it was noticed that these two planets tug on to each other due to a gravitational pull, thus bringing about a change in the time each of the planets take to transit their star. Because KOI-314b was a much denser planet weighing more than four times of the planet Earth, KOI-314c becomes a mere fraction of its weight making this planet the lightest to be known.

4. Kepler 70 B


Kepler 70 B is known to have broken many a record from being the hottest planet in the universe with a scorching temperature of more than 2000 degree Celsius, but it also has its orbit closest to the star. The distance between Sun and Mercury in our solar system is 65 times more than the distance between this planet and its star. This planet has the highest velocity and a unique feature about this planet is that unlike the other stars which explode on becoming a red giant, this star stabilized and cooled down and released all the gas giant planets in the atmosphere.

5. OGLE-2005-BLG-390L B


This planet is the coldest planet existing in the universe, with a record cold temperature of -200 degree Celsius. This planet is also considered as the farthest exoplanet as it is 28,000 light years away from the Earth, due to this h8uge distance from its star it takes about 10 Earth years to orbit it, with the star extremely small in size compared to the Earth’s star.
