The Australian Women's Weekly - - Monthly Round-Up -

It rained di­a­monds in Cal­i­for­nia af­ter sci­en­tists recre­ated the “di­a­mond rain” phe­nom­e­non found on Nep­tune and Uranus. The re­searchers turned plas­tic into di­a­mond-like struc­tures us­ing an op­ti­cal laser to cre­ate shock­waves in the plas­tic, mim­ick­ing the ex­treme con­di­tions on the two icy plan­ets.
