There is a planet covered in burning ice. You heard me.
Adam Rifkin stashed this in The Universe
Via Reddit user --wasp:
There is a planet that is covered in burning ice. Not dry ice. Ice, but it's incredibly hot. It is called Gliese 436 b. Its surface is at a constant 800ºF, but the ice remains as ice because the gravity of the planet is so incredibly powerful that it compresses all of the water vapour into a solid state. It is actually called ice-ten/ice X.
It does boggle my imagination just thinking about it.
