This planet is uninhabitable with a score of 13 out of 100. This planet is the closest planet to the star, Altair. The side of the planet closest to Altair is molten, a concoction of gas and molten lava so hot that it actually possesses a slight gravitational pull. The gravity on this pole is what keeps it stationary - unlike Earth, it does not rotate around the star, but rather hovers in place. On the other side of the planet, facing away from Altair, are oceans and beaches similar to those found on planet Earth. The waters maintain a temperature between 30-40 degrees Celsius and this pole remains at a constant dusk-like state of light due to the lack of rotation. Despite this side of the planet possessing potentially favorable conditions, the waters contain mercury, and the atmosphere consists of high levels of arsine, rendering the waters and air incompatible with plant and animal life.
