The recent discovery of a planet in our universe with a surface temperature that is hot enough to boil rock, and, oddly enough, rains rocks instead of water from vaporous rock clouds, has been bestowed the fitting moniker of "Hell Planet."

The Hell Planet sits a mere 1.6 million miles away from its star (rather close when one considers that this is 23 times closer than our innermost orbiting planet).

Hell Planet is an interesting discovery for the scientists, and will certainly give them plenty of research material. Stats for Diabolical Planetary Discoveries Trending: Older & Chilly
