Everything you wanted to know about the diamond planet discovered by Yale researchers, in one handy graphic.
The Yale Tumblr is in danger of turning into a space-and-science-appreciation blog. I’m okay with this. Graphic by Emmanuel Quartey.
It’s so like Yale to discover a planet that no one could afford, amiright?!
Just kidding, this is fantastically cool.
EXCEPT IF WE HAD AN ENTIRE PLANT MADE OF DIAMONDS IT WOULD MEAN THAT THE VALUE OF DIAMONDS WAS PRETTY MUCH NULL AND VOID. I MEAN NOT 100% COMPLETELY BECAUSE THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT ARE QUITE GOOD TO MAKE DIAMONDS OUT OF BUT IT WOULD BY NO MEANS BE WORTH THE PRICE LISTED HERE.
