Re: A 2500-milewide Diamond in Space? (Mike Kremer)

There is an "FOB" problem in your quoted case. Closer to home, marketed diamonds are typically a billion years old. The Earth has not cracked 100 miles deep in a very long time. One therefore posits that a mere 100 miles beneath your brogans the average diamond is at least the size of a bowling ball. Alas, it is FOB in situ only. (One presumes detonating a string of 100 megatonne H-bombs at the very bottom of the Mariana Trench to get things moving is environmentally unsound.)
