Can I land a Kerbal on it with exploits?

"Like dude, it's one of the most extreme planets. Every landmass is a totally sick skatepark, the oceans are filled with Code Red Mountain Dew, and instead of leaves, the trees are covered in Jalapeno Doritos."

The star around which WASP-189b orbits is very different from the sun. Monika Lendl says: "The star is considerably larger and more than two thousand degrees Celsius hotter than our sun. Because it is so hot, the star appears blue and not yellow-white like the sun."

That's a really weird quote, the binary star system is called "one of the hottest", yet it consists of two very pedestrian if aging sun-like stars of class G2, which would make them quite yellow.​3​1
