November 7, 2013: The Planet Is Evaporating!

The Tyranny of the Sun

Okay, so not Earth. It's actually a planet called KIC 12557548b, and it's really far away. But it is evaporating! Apparently solar flares are causing dust particles to evaporate from the planet's surface over time, causing the planet to shrink. One day, it'll just be gone. They say it won't happen to Earth, that Earth is protected from this phenomenon, but they also say you can't mix Kool-Aid and chocolate pudding, and we all know that's not true.
