Beautiful graphic interpretations of unknown planets and celestial bodies…
WASP12b is in a class of exoplanets called “Hot Jupiters” – gas giants that orbit so close to their parent star. While gas giants need cold temperatures to form, it is believed these planets slowly migrated closer and closer in orbit. The star’s gravity pulls on the planet, into a slight egg shape, and eats away at the planet’s gaseous atmosphere, pulling it into a disc around the sun.
In about 10 million years, WASP12b will be complete consumed by its star.
More recently, WASP12b was found to be a carbon-rich planet. It is very likely the core of this planet is a giant rock made of diamond & graphite. It is also believed to pour down sapphire rain.”
