So, this thread is all about exoplanets, their discoveries, or if they rain glass... 

Artist's concept of Kepler-186f

Credits: NASA Ames/SETI Institute/JPL-Caltech (Kepler-186f)

So, on the blue HD 189733b it rains molten glass and has wind speeds of over 7,000 kmph (4350 mph). Making it so it doesn't just rain molten glass, but rains sideways; and has a atmospheric temperature of over 1,000 degrees C (1,830 degrees F)

Im not really focused towards Exoplanets too much, since my brain explodes and my eyes shoot out and reach escape velocity whenever i think about how scientist can calculate the characteristics of a planet just by looking at a few pixels and blobs.
