Download the update today and make those Space Pigs face the music of the spheres - which goes Crash! Tinkle! Boom!
Exploding crystal planets may not really exist, but did you know there are actually planets full of diamonds out there orbiting distant stars? One of them is called WASP-12b, and it’s a huge, searing hot gas planet that’s very carbon rich. And according to scientists, its core may be made of diamonds, graphite and other such elements! There could also be rocky planets, like our Earth, which are full of carbon. This would mean the planets may have mountains made out of diamonds, rocks made of pure carbon and pools full of tar. Astronomers may have already found the first Super-Earth like this – and it’s called 55 Cancri e!
If you want to know more about carbon planets, read this article from our friends at NASA. Oh, and if you happen to be around Utrecht in the Netherlands, then be sure to visit NASA’s A Human Adventure exhibition. The Angry Birds will also be present, of course!
