|“||HELP ME I'M BEING LITERALLY EATEN ALIVE!!!!!||”|
— WASP-12b, Meet WASP-12b
WASP-12b is a Hot Jupiter who is being eaten alive by WASP-12.
WASP-12b is an exoplanet being vaporized by the intense heat of his star. Additionally, the gravitational pull of WASP-12 has stretched and distorted WASP-12b into an oblong, egg-like shape. WASP-12b's atmosphere is being boiled off into space by the solar wind, and due to its orbit decaying it will most likely crash into the star in the near future.
