Maybe. I'm not sure too, but it's probably very difficult to bring the atoms of these gases together, because the electrons repel each other (and they won't make any molecules because they already have maximum number of valence electrons).

Yes, the electrons repel each other, but the electrons of other elements also repel each other. How are the atoms of noble elements different from other elements? That's the key.
