exoplanet-could-be-made-of-diamonds_60116_600x450Whilst researching about diamonds I came across reports of the discovery of a planet made primarily of diamonds!  April Fool’s joke I thought, but apparently not!

It is approximately 40 light years away (10 minutes in Star Trek Voyager at warp 9!! lol), it is in the constellation of Cancer.

But others can tell of this find better than me as I am no scientist!

Here are some links about it:
