Intense magnetic fields around white dwarfs may instigate an entirely new class of molecular bonding

Scientists at the University of Oslo have discovered a completely new way for atoms to bond together — but these researchers won't be replicating the effect in the lab any time soon. The previously unknown bonding mechanism can only happen in the vicinity of white dwarfs where their intense density and spin creates… »7/20/12 11:20am7/20/12 11:20am
