Wonderful!
That metallic hydrogen experiment conducted a year ago, needs verification and reproduction.

Alabama study doesn't credit Jesus. There's no child molesting.

Good luck finding funding.

The nanocrystalline diamond looks like a tiny nubbin of material grown on top of the flat culet surface of a one-third-carat gem diamond.

Spoiler: It is a tiny nubbin of material grown on top of the flat culet surface of a one-third-carat gem diamond.

Ya know, I actually recognize the material. From the 1970s, carbon-carbon matrix. Used primarily in submarine launched ICBMs. Made by feeding acetylene into a mold filled with a carbon fiber matrix. It was in the range of $30k a pound bacl then just due to material costs. If you could make it for a few thousand $ a pound, it would be a wonder material, not the stuff that tipped the end of the world.

Stop writing 'nubbin'; it sounds like something from Tolkien fan erotica.

I could have sworn that Andy Rehfelt did a Neil Diamond death metal song, but can't find it on YT.

So here's Diamonds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SlBg-​c​nZoxo
