    Osiris is the first planet ever discovered to evaporate - meaning

    Hello all users.

    In my opiniom, "Osiris is the first planet ever discovered to evaporate" means as follows:

    • Osiris is the first planet that has ever been discovered that evaporates or that is evaporating.
    • Osiris is the first planet that has ever been discovered, the discovery of which refers to its evaporating.
    • This is the first time ever /that/ the planet Osiris which evaporates has been discovered.


    What do you think of my interpretation?

    Do you think I am on the right track?

    Thank you.

    Where did you come across that sentence?
    You also have some spelling mistakes which we'd like you to fix.

    I don't know how a planet can evaporate.

    This will shed some light on the subject: Please type NASA - Dying Planet Leaks Carbon-Oxygen on the Internet.

    I am inclined to say it's the first one, but it seems to be saying that the planet has evaporated.

    "Osiris is the first planet ever discovered to evaporate."

    In my opinion that sentence is so poorly written as to defy interpretation. Where did you find it? Did you write it yourself?
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    Maybe the planet is in a different solar system. That would explain a lot.

    II am sorry for misleading you. I found the sentence in question somewhere on YouTube, but I don't remember the title.

    Yes, this is the so-called exoplanet (the planet outside our solar system). The planet is still evaporating.
