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. HD 189733 b is an extrasolar planet approximately 64.5 light-years away from the Solar System in the constellation of Vulpecula.
The planet was discovered orbiting the star HD 189733 A on October 5, 2005, when astronomers in France observed the planet transiting across the face of the star.
In a blog post, NASA wrote: “This far-off blue planet may look like a friendly haven – but don’t be deceived!
“Weather here is deadly.
“The planet’s cobalt blue colour comes from a hazy, blow-torched atmosphere containing clouds laced with glass.”
It continues: “Howling winds send the storming glass sideways at 5,400 mph (2km/s), whipping all in a sickening spiral.
“It’s death by a million cuts on this slasher planet!”
NASA released a video, styled as a nostalgic horror film trailer, showcasing the terrifying nature of this planet, along with other ones.
In the video, the voiceover says: “For eons, human beings have gazed up at its tranquil beauty, taking solace in the peaceful stillness of this vast and eternal cosmic cornucopia.”
NASA said: “One of three dead planets shambling through the twisted magnetic fields of their corpse star, Lich.
“This planet is itself the collapsed core of an exploded star.
“But despite its demise, this undead star spins twin beams of radiation that could incinerate a spaceship that ventured too close.”
The radiation from the zombie star rains down on the planet, as well as their neighbouring dead worlds.
This creates sickly irradiated auroras.
