SummaryAstronomers using NASA's Kepler space telescope have discovered a weird new planet that wobbles like a child's top as it spins, located 2,300 light-years away from the Earth.

Hopkins University.

Even with its changing seasons, Kepler-413b is too warm for life as we know it. Because it orbits so close to the stars, its temperatures are too high for liquid water to

exist, making it inhabitable.

It also is a super Neptune - a giant gas planet with a mass about 65 times that of Earth - so there is no surface on which to stand.
