What do you all think about this? http://news.softpedia.com/news/New-Storage-Method-Turns-Hydrogen-Metallic-81313.shtml http://nanotechnologytoday.blogspot.com/2008/04/tiny-buckyballs-squeeze-hydrogen-like.html http://www.popularmechanics.com/science/research/4256976.html Metallic hydrogen is even more dense than frozen hydrogen. So far, nobody has ever been able to squeeze hydrogen densely enough to achieve a metallic state. But the graphene/nanotubes/buckyballs are newer and game-changing. What if you could pack lots deuterium and tritium inside these buckyballs, squeezing these heavy isotopes into ultra-dense metal form? And furthermore, what if you attempted experiments like Taleyarkhan et al did, using ultrasound waves to further collide and compress them? The buckyballs are supposed to be quite physically robust, and able to withstand impacts at huge velocities: http://www.lbl.gov/Science-Articles/Archive/fullerenes.html They might be able to survive ultrasonic compression. Also, buckyballs have photonic resonance capable of making them expand and contract rhythmically: http://www.lbl.gov/Science-Articles/Archive/sabl/2005/May/06-buckyballs.html What if you were to resort to this form of compression too? I'm thinking that all of these things together could result in a nuclear fusion process. Comments? Let me know what you think.
