Twinkle, twinkle little star,
How I wonder what you are,
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.

Who knew a children's poet would be so foresighted, albeit with a star, not a planet. Lol.

Is this what Rihanna has been warbling on about recently?

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

Interesting to be sure, but of little, if any, "mining" value. Too far away, unknown confirmation on the science with respect to a "nearly solid diamond planet", blah, blah, blah...

More of an astronomical curiousity than anything else, in my opinion.

they will need a lot of new tech to even consider mining the thing, Not to mention that if it is diamond then it will shatter when it cools, so we
create a tractor beam that can drag it out of it's orbit to some orbit where we can survive, hoping as we do so that there is no strange unique  form of life on it that we are destroying,then we let it cool until we can survive on the surface, then mine it   and when it gets here diamond will cost the same as copper.
  i really would like to understand the scientific "guesswork" that allows our scientists to tell that this is solid diamond. my limited intelligence tells me there is no way in hades that we can know this until we get there and  look.

I'm about to be dull and boring ....... :hmm: : how do the scientists know this? in the article it seems to be all guesswork, 'possibly' and assumption. How can they guess at the construction of the mass of something so far away?

Hhhmmm....all  I could think of was Avatar-like humans wouldn't mine the crap out of it, when/if they get there.

I think it would be wonderful if the human race wasn't so avaricious.
