Kepler -10 Star System

This artist's conception depicts the Kepler-10 star system, where Kepler has discovered two planets. Kepler-10b (the dark spot in front of the yellow star) is the smallest planet outside our solar system. Kepler-10c, the larger planet to the left is much bigger. Both planets would be blistering hot worlds.
