Meteorite Suggests Remains Of Early Lost Planet


A meteorite that crashed in the Sudanese desert shows evidence that a lost planet once traveled through our solar system.  The rock landed in 2008 and contains diamonds that scientists say probably formed under the intense pressure of a planet interior some 4.5 billion years ago.  Evidence points to a planet that was at least the size of Mercury before it was destroyed in the turbulent early days following the birth of our sun.

The study is published in the journal "Nature Communications."
