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

CNN  — 

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.

Data provided by NASA’s planet-hunting TESS mission, the Hubble Space Telescope and retired Kepler mission have shown that our galaxy is filled with exoplanets that are very different from the planets in our own solar system.
