Very interesting ... I SO wish I could go to the moon and take a look -- or if we could at least send a robot explorer to check out these caves and tunnels...

Given that the average density of the universe is one hydrogen atom per cubic meter, it is very pleasant that intelligent life forms can gather in close proximity.

I cannot believe that we still don't have a base on the moon... One day...

But aren’t diamonds merely carbon crystals formed at high pressure, so I imagine that it is very plausible, but not in the form of a polished version we see in ladies fingers. Max, thanks for the book recommendations, I have read almost all Carl Sagan books, including Contact. Yet, we are so far the technology required, for human transport. That is just as well dream about it. :-)

The article said that it wouldn't look like a gigantic diamond ... but that just makes you wonder what it does look like ... I wonder of there are planets with diamonds the size of mountains on Earth, for example...

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
