Literally like a diamond in the sky

John Moe Aug 26, 2011

A new planet has been discovered in the Milky Way. As if being a planet in a solar system named after a candy bar wasn’t cool enough, this planet is made up of heavy, dense materials, which scientists say resembles a diamond. It’s 4000 light years away so don’t get any ideas, jewelry thieves.
