Strangest planets with life

I found a rather extreme planet in its own right, but not only that: it even harbours life!

It orbits binary system with an M1V and a K7V star, with a semimajor axis of 29 AU. The impressive thing though is that its orbit has an eccentricity of .88! That results in it actually passing through the orbit of one of the stars (including seven other planets)! Given its massive eccentricity, the distance from the barycenter of the stars vary from approximately 3.4 AU to nearly 45 AU. The other cool part is that it has an axial tilt of 274 degrees, meaning it's tipped almost perfectly on its side (270 degrees would be spot on). As a result of that, the length of a day on the planet varies enormously. At its shortest, it roughly equals its rotation period of 9 hours and at its longest it's probably years (I'm not very good at physics/maths so I don't know how to calculate that). I can't even imagine how extreme the seasonal changes must be on the planet!




The first image shows the planet's orbit around its stars and the second image shows the extreme axial tilt (the camera is roughly in the orbital plane).

The planet's ID is RS 8408-7-9-88579-1562 2, by the way.

What's the strangest planet with life that you've found?

i once found a planet pretty similar to that one, only details is that yes, it was a terra with life, but given it orbited a red dwarf, it passed from "hot" terra to "frozen" terra (!!!!)

i find these planets just funny to look at, as i infact called them "yo-yo planets", given they look like they are thrown away and then pulled back like yo-yos

Early on when I had first started playing SE, I found a cold planet with life on it, but that one somehow dissapeared in some sort of glitch.

More recently though, I found this one which orbits around a gas giant with a long (347 years!) elliptical orbit that brings it close enough to become a temperate terran, for a brief amount of time before swinging back out into the cold depths of its solar system. At its host gas giants furthest orbit, the terran with life gets down to 140 kelvin, which is -207.67 degree Fahrenheit.

I've found similar planet some time ago.



And in the same system - very rare intersection of orbits.

Code
Place    "Closest approach"
{
   Body    "RS 8403-118-8-16668496-5 3"
   Parent    ""
   Pos  (4.125146072712742e-010, 4.763425248861808e-009, -1.800815357889864e-009)
   Rot  (0.534002447237211, -0.7864231114924016, -0.290838614789784, -0.1085954704508396)
   Date    "2086.03.31 09:24:47.27"
   Vel  2.8777709e-009
   Mode    1
}

And here's the planet with white atmosphere, green plants and red seas. Very strange one. Code is HD 223346 3.1.



I also recommend HD 223346 4.1 - it's a beautiful place, but with no life at all.

While it's not as 'extreme' as the others, it is one of the heaviest gravity worlds with life that I've seen.

Similar to but not the same as the planet in the OP. The planet, when closest to the star, gets hotter by about 0.5K an hour. Has an orbit of 250 says so its pretty quick.

Well I think you found the planet from Pitch Black and the beginning of the Riddick Chronicles lol

RS 8403-141-9-91658110-36 7
Seriously one of the planet's with life I have found that goes from a temperature of 115.6 K (-157.55 C) to 300.86 K (27.71 C)
When the planet is farthest away



When the planet is closest

I have found something that is rather disturbing.





This Oceania is orbiting a brown dwarf.

Willing to take a look?

RS 8404-3-9-80283821-1897 BA1

I know I already posted this, but this one is strange and extreme in two ways, heavy gravity (not the heaviest with life that I've seen though) and very fast rotation for it's age at 3 billiom.

I also posted this one in the shortest orbits thread.

It seems to be a rather cold place (11 degrees fahrenheight), but I imagine that the geothermal heat generated by the tidal forces it experiences more than makes up for it.

I too have a planet with life that orbits a brown dwarf: It is a temperate terra and I originally posted about it in the image dump.
"RS 8403-196-9-67174431-170 B3 is a temperate terra orbiting and tidally locked to a brown dwarf that itself orbits and is tidally locked to a red dwarf. On rare occasion both orbital planes intersect as the brown dwarf passes in front of the red dwarf, giving a solar eclipse caused by a star. Because the eclipsing star is a brown dwarf, the eclipse still creates a period of darkness. "
