Planets Made from Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend

Astronomers have recently discovered a planet located 40 light years away in the constellation of Cancer and named it 55 Cancri e. The planet has a radius that is twice that of earths and a mass that is eight times greater. However, whereas earth is made up largely of boring old granite and water, 55 Cancri e is mostly made up of diamonds which makes it twinkle in the sky like a ring on the finger of God.

Diamond Planet Still Up for Grabs!

The good news is that neither the Russian nor the American space programmes have yet to develop technology capable of travelling 40 light years and so 55 Cancri e has yet to be colonised; which means that its spoils are still up for grabs.
