new from of crystal, Scientists Find New Kind Of Crystal In Debris From Trinity Nuclear Test
The dawn of the nuclear age spawned a new kind of matter, and scientists just discovered a piece of it.


And 75 years later, we’re still finding surprises amid the debris of that first nuclear blast, the Trinity test. When the bomb exploded, its fireball swept up nearby sand and fused it into lumps of glass and crusty fused material, which then rained down from the sky. Most of that clumpy, part-glass and part-crust stuff is pale green, and it’s been nicknamed trinitite, in honor of the nuclear test that created it. it a type of metal glass hyrbid.....


The Strange Byproduct Of Cataclysm

Crystals, from snowflakes to table salt to diamonds, are all about order and symmetry. They form because atoms arrange themselves in a 3D pattern that repeats over and over. Each repetition of that pattern is called a “cell,” and the cells that make up each crystal have to fit together so neatly that there are no gaps between the edge of one cell and the next.



A normal crystal – what physicists call a periodic crystal – might have 2-, 3-, 4-, or 6-fold symmetry. But some kinds of symmetry, like 5-fold and 7-fold, are totally out of the question. It simply isn’t done.

But under the right circumstances, by which I mean “genuinely terrifying amounts of sudden heat and pressure,” atoms can atoms can be forced to line up in unusual ways, creating something that’s technically a crystal, but breaks those rules of symmetry.



The trinitite crystal is unusual for a number of reasons, even among quasicrystals.

Of the 100 or so quasicrystals that scientists have identified so far – most of them created in high-intensity lab experiments – most don’t hold themselves together for very long at what we’d consider normal temperatures and pressures. You usually can’t slam two rocks together at high speed in the lab, create a cool new quasicrystal, and then put it on your mantle for display, because without the high temperatures and pressures that formed them, most quasicrystals settle into some other, less bizarre form. But this one has been stable for more than 75 years.

It’s also the first quasicrystal scientists have found which is mostly made up of silicon, and the only one that combines silicon, iron, and copper. That discovery has prompted Bindi and Steinhardt to think about other places scientists could go prospecting for quasicrystals.

They don't really care whether the truth gets out, because the public no longer knows what's meant by "the truth."

Well, I mean, no one can tell the difference anymore between what's real and what's fake.

Anyway, the point is, I can tell you all of this, right out in the open, because it doesn't matter who knows about it. They won't know whether to believe it or not.-

Great, hopefully the bums around here don't get a hold of any or I'll never get any sleep.
