Six Fascinating Planets Outside Our Solar System

The humor website Cracked has an article giving a survey of six fascinating planets outside our solar system.  All the planets discussed have something unique to them which seem to be more science fiction than actual science.  For instance, Gliese 436 b's is under such gravitational pressure being located near its star and its atmosphere is so unique that the planet is covered with burning ice!

Please note:  the website while most probably is safe for work is not necessarily appropriate for children.
