Have you heard of Kepler-10b? If not, it is a scorched world, orbiting more than 20 times closer to its star than Mercury is to our own sun. The daytime temperatures are probably more than 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit (hotter than lava flows here on Earth). Intense radiation from the star has kept the planet from holding onto an atmosphere, and if you want to find out more about it, please click HERE to go to NASA’s overview.
Keep an eye on the sky, dear Furiends!
