Submission + - Largest diamond in galaxy predicts our future

networkBoy writes: "Astronomers discovered the largest diamond of all times in space. The weight of the precious stone reportedly makes up ten billion trillion trillion carats.
The space diamond is virtually an enormous chunk of crystallized carbon, 4,000 kilometers in diameter. The stone is located at a distance of 50 light years from Earth, in the Constellation Centaurus. Scientists believe that the diamond is the heart of an extinct star that used to shine like the Sun.
Sounds like NASA may have a new source of funding!"
