Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star....


Recommended Posts

Up above the world, so high, like a diamond in the sky:


Twinkling in the sky is a diamond star of 10 billion trillion trillion carats, astronomers have discovered. The cosmic diamond is a chunk of crystallised carbon, 1,500 km across, some 50 light-years from the Earth in the constellation Centaurus.



How prophetic, that little song.

Arthur C. Clarke used a similar idea (a diamond core for the planet Jupiter) as a plot device for 2061: Odyssey Three. Used the Lucy reference as well.
