10 Most Bizarre And Record Breaking Alien Worlds


Our Universe is full of exotic alien planets. Most of these worlds bear very little resemblance to Earth and some of them are extremely bizarre. In this top list we present 10 of the most record breaking and bizarre alien worlds detected so far.

  1. CoRoT-7b– an alien world that contributes to the vision of hell

“CoRoT-7b is almost 60 times closer to its star than Earth, so the star appears almost 360 times larger than the sun does in our sky.
The planet’s surface experiences extreme heating that may reach 3,600 degrees Fahrenheit on the daylight side. CoRoT-7b’s size (70 percent larger than Earth) and mass (4.8 times Earth’s) indicate that the world is probably made of rocky materials.

“But with such a high dayside temperature, any rocky surface facing the star must be molten, and the planet cannot retain anything more than a tenuous atmosphere, even one of vaporized rock,” said Brian Jackson at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. Solar heating may have already cooked off several Earth masses of material from CoRoT-7b.

CoRoT-7b takes just 20.4 hours to circle its sun-like star, located 480 light-years away in the constellation Monoceros.

  1. Epsilon Eridani b – the nearest alien world outside our solar system


Epsilon Eridani b is the closest planet outside the solar system approximately 10 light years away. Officially announced as discovered in 2000 its existence was confirmed by the Hubble space telescope in 2006.

It is about 1.5 times the mass of Jupiter.
The planet orbits the nearby Sun-like star Epsilon Eridani, located 10.5 light-years from Earth in the constellation Eridanus. The planet’s orbit is inclined 30 degrees to Earth, the same angle at which the star’s disk is tilted. It orbits its star every 6.9 years.

Is Epsilon Eridani b abode of life as we know it? No.

Epsilon Eridani b is a gas giant–a fact that rules it out as a place for finding life as we know it. The behemoth’s atmosphere is probably a lot like Jupiter’s–mostly hydrogen and helium, with trace amounts of methane, ammonia, and other gases. The planet likely has no solid surface. Astronomers suspect its deep, turbulent atmosphere has huge convection cells that alternately cook and freeze any organic material caught up in their vertical motions.
