This was the first definite planet dicovered around a normal, main sequence star, and it was a world that should not be there, according to traditional theories. As close as 0,05 AU to its parent star, 51 Pegasi b has an average temperature of 1.300°C, sufficiently high to melt aluminium. But more surprising to the scientific world, 51 Pegasi b is almost as massive as Jupiter. As a gas giant, this planet could not have formed so close to the star. Most likely it formed in the outer ranges of the system and than migrated to its current position, possibly by interaction with a second giant planet, which was then thrown out of the system during this process. Or it may indeed have formed at its current position, but then 51 Pegasi b would be a supermassive terrestrial world. Inofficially, this planet has been named Vulkan, and it is really a place like Hell.

Another good name would be Hephaestus, because so far Roman mythological names have only been used to identify objects in our solar system. Greek mythological names like Bellerophon, Pegasi (which is a form of Pegasus, he constellation in which the star is located) are usually used to describe extrasolar bodies.
