Top 10 Oddest Objects in Deep SpaceQuartzWorld1230 From a moon with a smooth surface to a Galaxy Extremely far away. we count down our Top 10 Mysterious objects in deep space
The Top Ten
You may have thought tiny moons like Phobos are full of craters and a bumpy right? well Saturn's moon Methone is egg-shaped and has no craters unlike saturns other bumpy moons such as Hyperion or Pandora.
When rosetta started to orbit comet 67P/Churyomov in 2014, it found a odd noise emitting from its surface. It sounded like clicking. we don't know what it is yet
When the Hayabusa spacecraft visited asteroid 25431 Itokawa, it found that Itokawa had no Huge craters! this is because it is a rubble pile. meaning its covered in other stones, but it does smaller craters.
Located in the center of the shapley supercluster, Is IC 1101. it holds record for being the hugest galaxy ever!
Kepler-70 b and c are 2 planets that circle extremly close to Kepler-70. its tempratures are over 5000+ degrees celsius. that's extremely hot.
In 1991, a object known as 1991 VG was discovered. but it appears it could be a spacecraft. very little is known but probably NEOWISE (Near Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Sky Explorer) May help us.
In 2016, The hubble space telescope took a image and in one area. a galaxy now dubbed "GN-z11" was discovered. its around 32 Billion light years away
In 2005, a exoplanet called OGLE-2005-BLG-L90 b was discovered. it was found to be really cold. it took 10 years for it to orbit it stars. nearly at the distance of Jupiter.
Like Diamonds? well there's 2 exoplanets made of Diamond, one is 55 Cancri e. it has tons of Diamonds but I wont advise going there, its also pretty hot there and there's no atmosphere to protect you. another is (possibly) PSR J1749-1438 b. it orbits a pulsar and takes 2 hours to complete a orbit even though pulsars and their main types of stars (neutron stars) and white dwarfs there apart stuff. so PSR J1749-1438 b may be evaporating.
You though planets half a day side that spreads halway right? well the exoplanet TrES-2b (Or kepler-1b) Appears to be super dark. only getting 1% of light despite it near its star. it could be its super-heated atmosphere since super-heated atmospheres make things darker.
