Planet burning hotter than a small star is on a death spiral

Astronomy Magazine reported on a planet that is a rare test case because it orbits a younger huge star.

The planet is called KELT-9b and may not be around much longer as its temperature increases and it gradually spirals closer to its star.

Aaron Boley, UBC professor and Canada Research Chair in planetary astronomy, weighed in on the topic saying the planet’s tipped orbit adds to its intrigue and KELT-9b might have interacted with another planet.
