10 exoplanets you want to visit

Fomalhaut b, which received the strange nickname "zombie planet", revolves around the brightest star in the night sky - in fact, Fomalhauta. In size, this planet is close to Mars and the Earth, it has been “stuck” from cosmic dust recently and moves in a very strange zigzag orbit.

TrES-2b is officially the blackest of all the planets known to scientists. This gas giant reflects less than one percent of the light of its own star, which makes it blacker than coal, black acrylic paint or soot.

KOI-314c is supposedly the lightest exoplanet known to us, a miniature gas giant only 60% larger than the Earth and mainly consisting of hydrogen and helium.

Kepler-70b broke several space records at once. Firstly, its surface temperature is about two thousand degrees Celsius, and secondly it is the planet closest to its star of all known.

OGLE-2005-BLG-390L b is a planet famous not only for its unpronounceable name. This stone super-earth, revolving around a red dwarf in the constellation Scorpio, is the most remote of all exoplanets known to us. It is located at a distance of 28 thousand light years from Earth.

COROT-7 b has a huge mass, but at the same time makes a complete revolution around its star - a year - in only 20 hours. The illuminated side of the planet is an ever-boiling lava ocean. Unlit, most likely, is chained in an ice crust.

Kapteyn b is the oldest exoplanet known to us, 8 billion years older than Earth. This makes her a potentially interesting candidate for the emergence of life, perhaps even reasonable.

BD + 20 1790b is supposedly the youngest planet known to astronomers, formed about 35 million years ago. Despite such a young age by cosmic standards, a newly created planet has a powerful magnetic field.

GJ 1214b is the first "super-earth" found in the red dwarf. Presumably, completely covered with water, with an unusual combination of hot ice and superfluid liquids. The color of the planet remains red.

Kepler 10c is the largest rocky planet found so far, the size of Saturn or Neptune. It is two and a half times larger than the Earth and about 17 times heavier.

Worlds spinning in other stellar systems beckon to themselves with unchanging power. After all, what could be more exciting than taking a step on another planet? Well, or at least look at it from orbit, if it's a hot gas giant.

Let's look at the top ten most interesting exoplanets discovered by astronomers and dream a little about how humanity will get to them sooner or later.
