Too bad the NASA space travel program was canceled otherwise we might have been able to cash in on this gold mine one day. Or should I say diamond mine. Recently, a planet made from diamonds was discovered in another galaxy, far, far away.
If this were Star Trek and I had my own Enterprise ship I would warp right over to the huge planet that is said to be made of diamonds. The planet is currently orbits around pulsing star PSR J1719-1438. The diamond planet is believed to be about 5 times the size of Earth and bigger than the sun. Scientists believe that the planet was actually formed from a star.
So the biggest diamond ever is a planet. A planet that is 5 times bigger than the Earth and larger than the Sun. Sounds like it would make one heck of a ring. I am sure the Kardashians are already making the move to buy the diamond in the sky.
Only 5 times the size of the earth, but larger than the sun?
Regarding the Sun: It has a diameter of about 1,392,000 km, about 109 times that of Earth, and a mass of about 2Ã—1030 kilograms, 330,000 times that of Earth.
