The idea of ​​finding a new planet for humans to live on attracts many, most people, including Elon Musk, who has always considered Mars to be one of them.

Although there are expectations that the Earth may become uninhabitable at some point, this will not happen soon, especially since the expectations of the explosion of our sun say that this will not happen before another five billion years from now.

During the searches, scientists discover some that are impossible to live in, regardless of the obvious set of choices that must be considered to select planets capable of hosting life, such as oxygen.

Here are some examples of these terrifying planets:

WASP-76b: Molten Iron Rain

If you think heavy rain in winter is bad, try to live on this planet outside the solar system.

It is so close to its star that the temperature of one side reaches 2,500 degrees Celsius, which is enough to vaporize iron.

And if you think the other side is better, think again, because it’s a little cooler, at 1,000 degrees Celsius, but still too hot for us, as strong winds sweep through the molten iron and form into deadly drips.

HD 189733 b: Glass rain

The planet is located 64.5 light-years away from us and has a very beautiful glassy appearance. But this glass is actually a sign of the very thing that will quickly end humans on this outer planet. Because what you can actually see is the deadly weather systems moving through it, which includes molten glass falling in heavy rain.

Kepler-10b: lava and radiation

Although it is the first rocky exoplanet (such as Earth) to be discovered, it is not ideal for hosting life.

Kepler-10b does not have an atmosphere because it is very close to its star, which causes strong exposure to radiation, in addition to scientists believe that it is covered with an ocean of lava.

OGLE-2016-BLG-1928: Roaming Alone

Planets need a star to orbit around them to remain stable and safe, but OGLE-2016-BLG-1928 is not subject to this system.

Having abandoned his “mother” (his host star), he now wanders around the Milky Way at random. This is not only dangerous, but it is already a hell for astronomers trying to spot it, so you can imagine what it would be like trying to plan a trip to land on it.

TRES-2b: Darkness

Species on Earth need light not only to see, but to grow as well. Which is why TrES-2b is undoubtedly an impossible place to live, as it is so dark that scientists say the coal would appear lighter if the two were placed side by side.

The planet is extremely black because its atmosphere absorbs more than 99% of the light from its host star.
