Astronomers are constantly finding extrasolar planets or planets orbiting their parent star, other than our sun. With the aid of advanced optics and imaging system, facts are becoming clearer as to the composition and overall nature of these objects.

One interesting find is a planet designated Gliese 1214 b. It is about two and a half times the size of Earth and over six times as massive, circling its parent star over a course of 38 hours. Recent study showed that some of the water composition deep inside this planet may exist as a strange form of plasma.
