The Diamond Planet
Many people will think: how is a planet made of diamond supposedly one of the creepy facts about space? Good question. The planet, known as 55 Cancri E, was discovered in August 2004. We did not know much about it then, but we did know for sure that it was the very first Super-Earth discovered around a main sequence star. By 2012, we found it could be a carbon planet yet in 2016 the Hubble Space Telescope found hydrogen and helium, but no water. Due to its high carbon count and the fact that diamonds are just pure carbon, we could see a lot of them here. On top of this, all of the things it takes to make diamonds are heavily present. It’s creepy because our society, filled with many capitalist greedy types, would more than likely choose to fund missions here than those that could better sustain life.
