Age: 0-10 billion years

Diameter: 1,000 - 10,000 km

Location: Hot Zone

Surface: Partially molten, high surface temperature

Atmosphere: Extremely tenuous, few chemically active gases

Life-Forms: None known

Example: Mercury

Class B planets are found in a star's hot zone. Smaller than Earth, they range in size from 1,000 to 10,000 kilometers in diameter. Due to their close proximty to a star they have a high surface temperature, and an extremely tenuous atmosphere with few chemically active gases.

The planet Mercury in the Earth's star system is a Class B planet.
