 Post subject: Diamond planet
PostPosted: Fri Aug 26, 2011 7:38 am 
A new planet has been discovered named PSR J1719-1438 b That is 1.20 Jupiter masses. Astronomers have discovered that upon studying its orbit around a pulsar with the same name (minus the end 'b') that its density has to be more than 20 times that of the planet Jupiter. The chemical composition, pressure and dimensions of this planet indicate that it is crystallized, or in other words, a very, very big diamond !!!
All we have to do is figure out a way to get there and back and we can all be rich !! :lol:
With such a unique planet you would expect a more imaginative name though eh...... :shock:
