WatiGua-The Diamond Planet

The closest planet that orbits the 3rd star TeLios offers an unimaginable world to behold. 

Discovery Overview
What is a diamond planet?
WaTigua is known as a “diamond planet” due to the fact, this planet has a carbon-rich composition.

This makes this exoplanet unlike anything in our Tri-Star System.

All Stars and planets are created from dust and gas clouds, but it is the ratio of certain gases that determines what kind of planet or star is formed as a result of this process.

The Star TeLios,(unlike her sister stars, SoVran and MiThoz)has a higher carbon-to-oxygen ratio of elements, which (combined with the presence of water), has given birth to a carbon-rich planet…WaTigua.

WaTigua has a harsh extreme environment unsuitable for life as we know it. The atmosphere is rich in methane and other gases that lack oxygen.

Raining on WaTigua

The combination of methane interacting with storms in the upper atmosphere causes it to rain diamonds of all shapes and sizes on the surface!
