1438b is the most fascinating of cosmic objects. Its sun is a neutron star. A neutron star is a stellar object that has amazing mass (at least one and a half times as massive as our sun) but is incredibly small (approximately 12 miles in diameter). This star is so heavy that, on Earth, a teaspoon of its stellar material would weigh about a billion tons (yowza!). The immense intensity of this star has literally turned it's lone orbiting carbon-cored planet (a planet that is 3000 times the size of its sun) into a space-faring diamond. Pretty cool, huh?
