NASA Just Discovered The Strangest Planet In The Universe. What Is It?

J1407b. This may sound like a bunch of random letters mixed together, but in reality it is the name of one of the most fascinating planets astronomers have ever discovered. Nick-named the “Super-Saturn”, this bizarre planet has 37 rings surrounding it that span an astonishing 30 million miles across. In fact, the ring system is so massive and dense that if the planet orbited around the sun, the rings would be visible right here on Earth at night.

Its estimated that the “Super-Saturn” is a gas giant, similar but much bigger than the gas giants in our own solar system. That means if you were to try to land on it you would actually fall straight through into its core where the pressure is great enough to squish you into the size of a peanut.

This planet is definitely special enough to be #1 on our list, but what other strange planets have scientists discovered in the universe? Just how weird can they really get?
