A planet made of diamond?!

Post  El Guapo on Fri Aug 26, 2011 12:38 pm

A DIAMOND the size of a PLANET has been discovered in space, astronomers revealed last night.

The cosmic gem was created by a star called a white dwarf after a giant companion it was orbiting collapsed in on itself.

Astronomers think the pull of the collapsed star stripped away layers of the white dwarf, which is nearly five times the size of the Earth.

All that is left of the stripped-down star, which is about 4,000 light years away, is solid crystal like a diamond.

The giant jewel's existence was confirmed by scientists at Cheshire's Jodrell Bank observatory.

The Americans will be there soon chopping it up. They think the all planets belong to them, they will rape and steal whatever they want. UK is no better though.
