Recently, we told you about an exoplanet that rains glass. Sideways. Which got us thinking: 1.) we will never complain about the weather here on Earth again and 2.) surely that's got to be the worst place to live in the entire universe. But no! With the help of NASA and Kepler astronomers and a couple physicists, we found nine additional wildly inhospitable planets. Of course, you wouldn't survive too well anywhere in the universe that isn't Earth, but these places would be particularly awful--places with conditions "well-matched to Dante's visions of hell," as physicist Steve Tufte describes one of the planets. Check out the most miserable planets in the universe.

" Of course, you wouldn't survive too well anywhere in the universe that isn't Earth, ...."
That's a pretty bold, and sweeping comment, based on very limited data!
If this is Hell I'm all for Heaven.
Now, we, in our infinitive ignorance, being an atom in the universe, think we understand it. The utmost ignorance and preposterousness. Ah, the stocks and bonds, the politicians, the governments, the religions, races. The subatomic particles we are really, striving to understand the un-understandability.
Humans should be grateful to having been given the oportunity to live for a (very) short time in this universe. And having screwed up the oportunity. Just a test for the creature. Nothing gained, nothing lost.
