Diamond core - An exoplanet made entirely of diamonds was discovered this year by an international research team. Approximately five times the size of Earth, the small planet had mass similar to that of Jupiter. Scientists believe the short distance from its star coupled with the exoplanet’s mass means the planet, remnants of another star, is mostly crystalline carbon. http://myscienceacademy.org/2013/01/03/27-science-fictions-that-became-science-facts-in-2012/
