Standing on 55 Cancri e - The Diamond Exoplanet

55 Cancri e is a planet that is partially made of diamonds. So then what would it be like to visit this chaotic planet, land on it and walk around on it's surface? Watch the video to find out. CORRECTION: The planet is indeed tidally locked but it also does spin, it spins differently in a way so that the entire orbit of the planet matches the amount of time it is needed for a planet to rotate around it's own axis, which is also the reason why the planet is always only lit by the sun on one side while other side of the planet isn't.
