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?

      @Luke Walters ehm. planets are not basic knowlegde. In my country Finland, people study lot of things but space in not in the governments intrests so there is no Finnish language books for adults. Only for kids, I myself am planning to make book about this solar system in Finnish language because there is none, except for kids there are ton of them

      Fun fact: neutron stars are actually denser than atoms and are actually comprised of no discernible elements because they are basically an atom soup with a core made of free neutrons. No atoms exist inside them because the atom's subatomic forces can't resist the compression forces and end up having their protons, neutrons, and electrons ripped apart with neutrons going to the center, protons above them, and electrons at the surface in one giant not-quite-an-atom bundle.

      There's also a calculated and observed limit on how big they can get before going black hole.
      White dwarfs top out at about 1.4 times the mass of the sun
      Neutron stars top out at about 2.16 times the mass of the sun
      Any heavier than that and their cores collapse into black holes and absorb the rest of the star.

                Wouldn't some of these be rogue planets? Though they probabaly can't be detected.

                                    there is always that one aspect of in your videos you get wrong. Venus is the hottest planet in our solar system coz it has a much thicker atmosphere whereas mercury doesn't have

                                        Correction, not all of them lights are stars, just the ones that sparkles. Hard to tell but you can spot them with just your eyes.

                                          Wow. I don't think you have another video that is so based on assumption and unproven interpretation.

                                          This universe is only 6,000 years old according to the one that was there at the beginning. So I'm not sure what you're talking about.
