Diamond rain falls on Jupiter and Saturn

BBC News: Jupiter and Saturn regularly experience diamond rain, scientists claim after examining new atmospheric data from the gas giants.

After falling, the diamonds are melted by the extreme heats of the planets’ cores into a liquid sea.

The findings were presented at the annual meeting of the Division for Planetary Sciences of the American Astronomical Society in Denver, Colorado.
