Diamond planet discovered

August 28, 2011


Astronomers have discovered a very dense planet consists largely of carbon, so dense, scientists assume that the carbon must be crystalline meaning it is a massive cosmic diamond.  The planet orbiting a neutron star is about 4,000 light years away. I guess, miners of the future will beat each other out whoever reaches this gem planet first.  Hmm, I wonder how many carat does it weigh. :)
