Diamond Planet Discovered – Video
Scientists say the planet exists about 4,000 light years away from Earth, and is probably the remnants of a once-large dead star.
As to what the diamond planet looks like, Ben Stappers of the University of Manchester told The Macadonean International News Agency (MINA) it’s probably not what everyone pictures: “I don’t know I could even speculate. I don’t imagine that a picture of a very shiny object is what we’re looking at here.”
Astronomers detected a similar planet in December 2010, only 1,200 light years away.
