Kepler-10b is a scorched world


Kepler-10b is a scorched world, orbiting at a distance that’s more than 20 times closer to its star than Mercury is to our own Sun. The daytime temperature is thought to be more than 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit, hotter than lava flows on Earth. Image Credit: NASA/Kepler Mission/Dana Berry
