  • Diamonds aren't rare so who really gives a shit. Although it would be a great excuse to launch jews into outerspace with no hope of return.

  • Seriously I dont believe it. They cant even tell for sure whats going on on this planet, they're making statements about a planet that gets all of 5 pixels on their camera. I dont think so.

    • @Dick Fabulous
      Well it's a bit more involved than just optical pictures. We can look at and sense stars through all sorts of methods aside from optical light. The Milky Way itself is about 100kly across, so 4000ly is right next door in terms of what we're able to see out there. Remember, we can see for billions of light years. For objects like this we can observe the light spectrum that they emit and have a very precise list of the elements its comprised of. If we know it's made mostly of carbo More..

    • @defect Common sense, LOL.

      If I was able to be around for the outcome, I'd bet you $10 they're wrong and revise their assessment along the lines of:

      "It was once thought that this planet was made of diamonds, ho ho ho, but of course now we know its made of a crock of bullshit."

  • Diamonds aren't even that rare here on earth, it's only through the direct manipulation of the diamond supply by the Debeers company that causes them to be worth as much as they are now. If that company didn't have a monopoly on like 98% of the worlds diamond mines there would be tons of them floating around and they wouldn't be nearly as valuable because there would be whole lot more of them. When/if I get married I'm giving my wife a Ruby wedding ring or some other gemstone besides a diamond More..
