In science:

GJ 1214b may have formed from a variety of primordial material in its protoplanetary disk including gas (predominantly hydrogen and helium); ice-forming material (water, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane, and ammonia); and rocks or refractory material (iron, silicates, and sulfides).
