Two hydrogen atoms walk into a bar.

One says, “I’ve lost my electron.”

The other says, “Are you sure?”

The first replies, “Yes, I’m positive...”

The potential energy field inherent in an unsatisfied ion warps space and time just as gravitational potential energy fields do.

With this and the last tenable vestiges of SuperSymmetry burning up in CERN things are changing.

Interesting article, but it's confusing. If you take an atom of iron or titanium and strip away most of its electrons, have you not fundamentally changed the structure of the atom sufficiently that it has now become something else - like helium - as the article suggests? If that's the case, why not use an atom of helium instead of converting another atom into something that looks or acts like helium under these conditions??

Hopefully, someone with more chemistry or physics background can point me to an explanation.

I’m not an electrician but it’s always seemed to me
to be somewhat anachronistic to use atomic power to
run a steam turbine to make electricity. Surely there
must be a way of direct production...? Here we are
generating electrical current with the same means
of production used from the very beginning.

“If 20 of titanium’s 22 electrons are removed, it becomes a highly charged ion that looks in many ways like a helium atom that has been shrunk to a tenth its original size,” says NIST physicist John Gillaspy, a member of the research team.
***And if that heavy metal is absorbing hydrogen atoms, the resultant Condensed Matter starts behaving as if it were under a plasma, with far more likelihood of generating fusion events than previously.

And when you go to the original article, don’t pass up the side-bar link to the story on the Large Hardon Collider - er, that is, the Large Hadron Collider.

It’s interesting that we’ve harnessed electrical energy for useful purposes for over a century, and still have a lot to learn about this basic force.
