Heavenly Body of the Week: HAT-P-1

HAT-P-1 is nearly twice as large as Jupiter, but it's mass is so low that it is actually lighter than a ball of cork. It could float in water...if there was a tub in which it would fit. Howzabout that!?

That's it gang.  See ya 'round the web.

  2. Yeah. This planet is so close to it's sun, that a year only takes four and a half Earth days.

    Okay, maybe not.

  4. Man, if I were born there, I would probably way as much as a feather, or even lighter. And I'd be smokin' hot!
