A diamond planet?

Astronomers have discovered a planet in our universe that is up to five times the size of Earth and is made almost entirely of diamond.The team, which have reported their findings in the journal Science, think that the 'diamond planet' is all that remains of a once-massive star, most of whose matter was siphoned off towards the pulsar it is orbiting. #BuzzPatrol #Carbon planet #diamonds #Pulsar #Jupiter #Planet #Astronomy
