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.

love it

It does boggle my imagination just thinking about it. 

Bet they don't worry about Global Warming!

No they do not.
