Both black boxes from the Cypriot airliner which crashed near Athens have been recovered as Greece investigates its worst air disaster. All 121 passengers and crew aboard Flight 522 died when it hit a hill after an apparent drop in cabin pressure knocked out both pilots. Tests on the bodies appear to confirm that most of the victims froze to death before the actual crash.

Although the parent star is much cooler than the Sun, the planet orbits 13 times closer to the star than Mercury's orbit around the Sun. That means the surface must be a blazing hot 300° C or more, keeping water in its atmosphere in vapour form. But the high pressures in the planet's interior would compress the water so much that it would stay solid even at hundreds of degrees Celsius - the expected temperatures inside the planet...
