Carbon-rich planets made of diamonds may exist beyond our solar system, study says

Exoplanets, or planets outside of our solar system, that contain more carbon than Earth could be made out of diamonds, according to a new study. Scientists simulated how these carbon-rich exoplanets could use pressure and heat to convert water...
