Dense

LV-426 from Alien is stated to have a diameter of 1,200 km and a surface gravity of 0.86g.

That comes out to a density of 20.45 g/cm^3!

Accounting for a skin of other materials to make the overall density lower than the primary materials...

LV-426 must be made from iridium, osmium, platinum or rhenium.

No wonder Weyland Yutani wanted to colonize the place.
