Places in the Solar System Where Your Death Would Be Most Horrific


It’s easy to look out into the night sky and imagine the wonders and possibilities that await us among the stars. Tons of science fiction movies have been made about venturing into the cosmos, and as many of those movies show, space isn’t exactly hospitable. In fact, our solar system is essentially a collection of giant death traps. Which is too bad, because, like, you really want to go to Jupiter, right? Wouldn’t that be cool? But pretty much everywhere that isn’t Earth will destroy you; the deadliest places in the solar system are also the coolest.

In addition to lava-spewing volcanoes, ice volcanoes, and lakes of noxious gas, some planets have storms so strong they’ll rip the flesh off your bones. The good news about all these places is they’d kill you really quickly. So, if you’re in a morbid and cosmic mood, check out our list of the scariest, worst places to die in the solar system below.
