A Planet Made of Diamond

A planet made entirely of diamond? Only God can do this. Image from the internet.
This is rather old news but it is amazing! I am not talking about a dream here but a reality that astronomers have discovered. They have indeed discovered planet near the Milky Way Galaxy whose density seems to suggest that it is made of diamond!

Matthew Bailes of the Melbourne-based Swinburne University of Technology disclosed that, “The evolutionary history and amazing density of the planet all suggest it is comprised of carbon — i.e. a massive diamond orbiting a neutron star every two hours in an orbit so tight it would fit inside our own Sun.”

And I am like whoa! When discoveries like these are being reported, I cannot help but praise God for His magnificence. I know very well that this is one of His handiwork for who could be able to make a planet made of diamonds but God? Diamond is a precious gem here on earth and God makes a planet from it. This new planet lies about 4,000 light years away from the Earth. It is believed to be what was left of a big star. What I know about the character of my God, this is just one of the beautiful things that He added in His vast universe.

Sigh…God, You are marvelous. I worship You, Lord. I am in awe of Your majesty. A diamond planet…huh, now let’s see who could top that? No one, Lord. Not in this lifetime. And not in this world.
