One of the solar system’s early planets didn’t survive, but its diamonds are now on Earth

LOS ANGELES TIMES

Scientists have found the first hard evidence of a large and ancient protoplanet embedded in extraterrestrial diamonds that fell to Earth about 10 years ago.

To be clear, the diamonds did not fall to Earth on their own. Instead, they were discovered inside a meteorite that slammed into the atmosphere over the Nubian Desert in northeastern Sudan in October 2008.

And in case you are imagining large twinkling space gems, let’s also be clear that these diamonds are extremely tiny — the biggest are about the width of a human hair.

Navajo Nation Withstands Motion to Dismiss in Colorado River Breach of Trust Litigation

Native News Online Staff

WINDOW ROCK – Last week, the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit granted the Navajo Nation’s request to overturn a decision of the Arizona District Court holding that the Nation’s claim that the United States had breached its fiduciary duty to the Navajo Nation in decisions regarding the management of the Colorado River was barred by sovereign immunity.  Attorney General Ethel Branch explained the significance of the ruling: “The decision in Navajo Nation v. Department of Interior, 9th Circuit No. 14-16864, is particularly important for tribes within the jurisdiction of the Ninth Circuit because it clarifies that Congress has waived the immunity of the United States for all suits for injunctive and declaratory relief that do not seek money damages.”
