Scientists Discover Planet Made of Diamonds

Na wa o. There’s nothing we won’t hear. This time, Yale scientists have detected a huge ‘super-Earth’ made of diamonds. The study estimates that at least a third of the planet’s mass – the equivalent of about three times the mass of Earth – could be diamond.

The planet is twice as wide as Earth, and has a mass eight times greater. It is thought to be covered in graphite – the material found in the ‘lead’ of pencils – and diamonds.

I think we should start planning a trip to that planet. Lol
