Science news this 7 days: Pink diamonds and nuclear ‘pasta’

This week in science information, we identified how most of the world’s pink diamonds shaped, cooked up some nuclear ‘pasta’ in dead stars and viewed a slime-protected ‘penis’ mushroom do its matter.

If you photo a diamond, one particular that is crystal clear commonly springs to mind, but Australia’s Argyle formation provides pink diamonds. We now know their distinctive coloration arrives from the break up of the planet’s first supercontinent 1.3 billion years ago. More just lately, just 66 million several years ago, the Cretaceous-Paleogene mass extinction led to the reduction of three-quarters of Earth’s species. But one particular detail that did survive was flowers — and they thrived since of it.
