two possible views of the rocky planets around K-10

" C " was in the news lately . A paper published has it as a rocky "big earth" at 2.4 times the diameter of the earth
instead of the " Small Neptune" gas planet it was thought to be .
"B"

"C" - with and without the clouds

Definitely prefer your version of Kepler-10c than the one that was produced for the press release. The inferred composition has 5–20% ices by mass, so I doubt you'd see a rocky surface there!

c is a bit warm so i put in a few DRY rivers and basins
but without more info other that it is about +413F degrees and rocky ??????????
there are a ton of unknowns , and this is where the artist comes in
there are MANY things that COULD be correct

i added thick clouds because at 2.4 X the diameter of the Earth, the core "should" not be frozen and there "should" be a strong magnetic field
