comment Compressing a fluid with arbitrarily large force in an infinitely strong chamber
My impression is that you'd form a solid like metallic hydrogen well before, say, ~95% compression of a fluid. I'm mostly interested in the regime dmckee is referring to, but it would be great to have some hard numbers.

you'd have to go a lot higher than LEO to achieve your zero-g penthouse.

@Raskolnikov, why is scaling symmetry important?

comment An astronaut and a vengeful pole
@Tim, I've edited the question to specify that the pole has uniform density and is 'thin' rather than 'infinitely thin', which should hopefully avoid some conceptual issues.
