Main Question or Discussion Point
Does anyone in this forum known when the Linus Pauling Close-Packed Spheron Model of the atomic nucleus was falsified as being an impossible view of how quantum mechanics can be used to describe the nucleus ? It was first published in 1965 in journals Science and Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci. I cannot find a single textbook on nuclear physics that mentions the Pauling Spheron model--which is strange because the model is in complete agreement with theory of quantum mechanics--of which Pauling was an expert.
