Diamonds Fall From the Sky
Diamonds may fall like rain on Jupiter and Saturn, a new study suggests.
According to the astrophysicists from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and California Specialty Engineering, powerful storms on both planets create carbon particles, which are then transformed into diamonds as they fall inward, facing greater and greater pressure.
Going even deeper into the planets, the researchers say the conditions are such that the diamonds melt and form a liquid and, possibly, an entire diamond ocean layer.
