Holy shiat, they metalicized the internet.

Yeah, but that's still 1.365 White Lions.

Can't H be considered a metal? Granted, it's difficult to find in solid form.

I was just listening to "Whiplash" on my way to work, so I'm getting a real kick out of this headline.

Is it a base metal?

Theoretically, under *extreme* pressure...maybe.

I thought Hydrogen was the lightest metal.
(*reads article*)

FFS, that isnt even a "metal."

Lightest metalic material would be a much better label.

I think there is more to being a metal than just being a solid. Something about electron orbitals and energy levels or something...it has been awhile. Plus, aren't metals supposed to all be good conductors of heat and electricity? Relative to non-metals anyways...

Don't touch that please, your primitive intellect wouldn't understand things with alloys and compositions and things with... molecular structures.

Everyone hates on Stevens, but the same models can be used for flow of data across a network and flow of liquid through pipes. He's righter than anyone gives him credit for even if it was an accident.

Just as I got to this comment, "Bungle in the Jungle" came up on my playlist.

Hg is a metal, yet liquid at room temperature.

black metal is really the best kind of metal

My favorite is Ga. Solid at room temp, but melts in your hand.
 
2012-11-14 06:06:36 PM  
Hmmm. Judging from the video on Popsci's site, it looks nice and springy, but doesn't seem to be very stiff. I wonder what sort of components they're planning to make from it.

That's really more of an alternative to metal.

Put H into a nice tube like this and it conducts plenty well.

Ugh. Sticky. Plus, it oxidizes to form an ugly skin.

what is its modulus of elasticity and max stress? they said that its max strain was .5. but for alot of aero applications you need a material that wont bend much.
 
2012-11-14 07:20:48 PM  
Their Young's modulus E exhibits different scaling, with the density ρ, E ~ ρ2, compared to E ~ ρ3 in aerogels and carbon nanotube foams

so for density of .9mg/cm^3 = .9kg/m^3

therfore E=.81 and max stress is .81*.5=0.405 Pa.

pretty shiatty material if you ask me. someone tell me if i farked up my numbers tho.

Diamond and graphite are a fantastic conductors of both heat and electricity. Carbon is not a metal.

Those two statements don't contradict what Cat's breath said.
Cat's breath didn't say all conductors of electricity are metals; he/she said the inverse of that.

That would fall under the category of "air metal".

No, because he was talking about spam. In context it seemed (in my opinion anyway) as if he thought that sending e-mail messages worked like vacuum tubes at bank drive-throughs. He thought that if someone sent out spam it would block a pathway and keep anything else from going through it. I don't think he had any concept that it was a stateless connection.

Even if that's the case (I don't remember the context), his reasoning is totally wrong but his conclusion is mostly only wrong because of scale. If we share e.g. a cable connection and I decide to torrent porn all day, or just shiat out all the spam I can create, your connection is going to be noticeably slowed because I'm hogging the bandwidth. It would take an absolutely huge amount of garbage traffic to slow down the internet backbone, but if there were enough of it, it would have a cost, especially if it were UDP or some other homebrew protocol that didn't throttle itself.
