Someone Must've Left the Cap off the Bottle

This spaceflightnow article details the recent discovery of a planet that is actually evaporating as it orbits its star. One of those super-giant "hot Jupiters", it is thought it will eventually lose most if not all of its atmosphere and leave just the core.

The universe can be a very, very strange place.
