Though we may complain about it, Earth has nothing on the universe when it comes to wild weather. Within our own solar system, there are storms so large that our entire planet would be engulfed three times over. The thousands of exoplanets we have uncovered feature not only alien worlds with alien sunsets, but also places where gems rain down from the sky. Join Dr. Wakeford for an adventure into the most extreme weather known to science.
