    Comet

    I am coming,
    Spiraling around the enormous giant,
    Traveling through light years of space,
    I now realize the beauty of it,
    It is my dream that I must embrace.

    Maximizing my velocity to minimize time,
    I must advance through the plethora of gas,
    That slows me,
    And penetrate through the tons of dense Hydrogen
    That stops me,
    I must cut through and pass,
    There awaits the realms of my Intelligence.

    Temperature is increasing,
    Ten thousand degrees of Kelvin I must fight,
    Pressure is directly increasing,
    All I now see is burning red light,
    May entropy do me part,
    I am coming.

    Not a planet, maybe the sun?

    He said planet, so it can't be the sun because its a star. I'm not treating you dumb I'm just saying I'm not sure the answer could be learned if the question contradicted the answer and vice versa.

    True, but....
    Ten thousand degrees of Kelvin I must fight,
    Pressure is directly increasing,
    All I now see is burning red light
    And he mentions Hydrogen, so if not the sun, then Jupiter near the core? But a comet can’t get that deep. Venus is the hottest planet and it is not close to 10000K, which is hotter than the surface of the sun. :?
