The sun is liquid, and the same science that saves 1000s of lives, from the best radiologist of our era, tells us this is true.
They Might Be Giants are actually They Might Be Mistaken!
What is metallic hydrogen, and does it exist at the core of all the gas giants in our solar system?
At the LLE, researchers use the powerful OMEGA laser to fire pulses at a hydrogen capsule. The laser impinges on the sample, developing a high-pressure, high-temperature condition that allows the tightly bound hydrogen atoms to break. When this happens, hydrogen is transformed from its gaseous state to a shiny liquid state, much like the element mercury.
