I am by no means knowledgable on the atomic structure of metals... but then again... nobody is. That's why this avenue of inquiry has the potential to be so revolutionary.
I think the article is not written well enough. I am intrigued by the science of determining exactly what a metal is. This was a topic when I took chemistry so many years ago.Larrin wrote: ↑Thu Jun 25, 2020 5:16 amI didn’t understand from this article what they were trying to do exactly. Defining what a metal is Is fuzzy because of all the different definitions used, most elements on the periodic table are in fact metals but there are lots of fuzzy boundaries. A journal article would probably make more sense. The whole angle on discovering what a metal is might just be a spin to give broader appeal to a pretty specific experiment.
It's magic. That's the only explanation. The hot pocket guys must have wizards on staff.
I think "crispy" may be a bit of an exaggeration.

Hahahaha! One of my profs blew up the lab with a super strong base.
It's important to remember that a technical definition like "metal" is fairly arbitrary. The topic for discussion is not really "what is metal?" but rather "in what way is 'metal' actually a useful category to talk about?"
