Best Alien Planet Weather Map Ever Reveals a Scorching World
A super-hot planet 260 light-years from Earth is showing signs of water vapor in its atmosphere, despite scorching temperatures that are hot enough to melt steel, according to the best weather map ever created of an alien world.
The Jupiter-size alien planet, called WASP-43b, is so hot that daytime temperatures reach 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit (1,648 degrees Celsius). At night, it’s a bit cooler — about 1,000 F (537 C) — still hot enough to melt silver.
The moment you set foot in this castle, you forgot every spell and ability you knew… though the forgetting does not end there. In this place, to find is to lose and to lose is to find. That is the way of things in Castle Oblivion.
