Journal momerath2003's Journal: 10^33-carat Diamond Found

I just submitted a story, who knows if it will get accepted. Regardless, here it is for posterity: For any of you who have read Sir Arthur C. Clarke's Space Odyssey series, you will appreciate this. In Clarke's novels, he hypothesized the existence of an earth-sized diamond at the heart of Jupiter. The universe held a much bigger surprise - astronomers have discovered a crystallized white dwarf: a diamond 2500 miles in diameter. This star, 300 trillion miles away, is called "BPM 37093" and resides in the constellation Centaurus.
