Scientists blasted plastic with lasers and turned it into tiny diamonds and a new kind of water

Using ultra-powerful lasers, scientists detonated cheap plastic and turned it into tiny “nanodiamonds” and in doing so confirmed the existence of a new exotic type of water. .

The results could potentially reveal the existence of the diamond shower on the ice giants in ours solar system and explains why these freezing worlds have such strange magnetic fields. The laser blasting technique could also lead to more terrestrial applications.
