Transformation Of A Star Into A Diamond Planet
Astronomers have discovered the densest extrasolar planet yet: A Jupiter-mass remnant of a carbon- and oxygen-rich star that measures no more than 55,000 km (31,000 mi.) across.

The odd world, whose density is on average at least 23 g/cm³ (0.80 lb/in³) -- or about twice that of lead -- is probably crystalline and possibly largely composed of ultradense diamond.
