Planet BLING

How cool is this:

Scientists discovered a planet not too far from our own solar system (about 4,000 light years), mostly made up of crystallized carbon -- in other words, a giant diamond in space!

This interesting rock in space orbits its star, a small pulsar star named J1719-1438 , once every 2 hours and 10 minutes! Besides being a giant diamond, this planet is slightly more massive and about 20 times more dense than Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system

My suggestion: name this planet "Planet Bling"
