At last a place for sunny vacations
« on: March 11, 2013, 12:25:36 PM »
It's probably a bit too sunny actually



I actually imagine the thing as being an ocean of molten silicon...



It's surprising that the atmosphere is not also composed of vaporized iron (Boiling point of iron is 2862 °C, a tiny bit lower than the average temperature on this hellhole)

EDIT :

As strange as it may seems, those kind of planets exists :

How long is its year? :)

The day and the year are both 45 terran hour long. Obviously tidaly locked. So there's indeed a "cold" side.
