Cosmology News: Black hole & Diamond Planet

There has been some interesting cosmology news recently.

A Japanese team of the Kiboo experimental module on the ISS and SWIFT captured the first photographs of a massive black hole swallowing a star in the Draco constellation. You can read the full article over at SpaceRef. 

Meanwhile, there is news of a diamond planet bigger than Earth orbiting a pulsar within our own galaxy (via The Daily Galaxy). 

In the words of Mr. Spock, "Fascinating."
