Diamonds are as mysterious as they are beautiful and this new study shows that diamonds may be the product of complex processes

Researchers working on the ROSETTA-Ice Project have discovered an ancient rock formation underneath Antarctica’s Ross Ice Shelf, the world’s largest sheet of ice. Using the IcePod system, the team collected images of the ice as well as measurements of the magnetic field and gravity of what lies beneath. And a complex melting pattern emerged. An aerial view of
