Caption: Molten planet, computer artwork. This large rocky planet, which could be the core of what was once a gas giant, is a hypothetical type of extrasolar planet that has not been discovered yet. Several gas giants have been found orbiting very close to their parent star. It is thought these planets end up close to their parent star due to disturbances in their orbit as they form. A bow shock is seen around the planet, caused by the impact of the parent star's solar wind. The planet's surface has been turned molten due to the heat of the parent star.
