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...
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
