Planet HD 209458b (unofficially referred to as "Osiris") rapidly orbits its star in the constellation of Pegasus in a breakneck 3.5 earth days. The alien planet Osiris has some of the elements that scientists say is required for a planet to support life as we know it; like water vapor, oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere but if there is alien life on this planet it will have to be the kind that doesn’t mind a little heat. Some say that extreme temperatures are easier to tolerate when it is a dry heat but the surface temperature of 1,000 °C (about 1,800 °F) is creating humid steamy gases that escape and form a tail about 124,000 miles (200,000 km) long! Alien life forms here are also going to have to endure slightly breezy conditions sometimes too; astronomers measured a super storm (with wind speeds of up to 7000 km/h) there once. Needless to say if there is alien life on Osiris they are a hardy bunch, probably having a big end-days party because this planet is so close to its star that it may be sucked in soon, then it will really get hot!
