comment Can antiprotons make stable bounds with halogens?
thanks Sofia -.

comment Can antiprotons make stable bounds with halogens?
right, but with a high $n$ so that their overlap with the matter nuclei is tiny. Also, Rydberg matter seems to hold the atoms from decaying by quantum correlations. But I guess that's a story for another thread.. or question

It would be interesting indeed. It is a long shot, but I keep wondering from time to time that antiprotons could make metastable Rydberg atoms with normal matter with some coherent RF pumping of sorts. Who knows

comment The gravitational constant $G$ theoretically?
The argument has several holes, but it is an attempt in the direction of an anthropic argument, which I would say doesn't qualify as 'overreach'

Indeed. What replaces a global coordinate system in GR is an atlas, which is a patchwork of coordinate systems with are glued to each other via homeomorphic biyections in a subset of their overlap regions

Actually that's the purpose of the question, it is right on the last line: "or you see other physical effects cropping up and destabilising the rotator?",.. ah but I forgot, you didn't read any of it. That's ok

oh! it seems you have an answer for the question then. That's good. Go and enlighten us how the z-pinch instability applies on this case

comment Forward's frame-dragging accelerator
That's the electrostatic self-repulsion. But the magnetic force points opposite to that.. Now, I was thinking that you skipped right after reading a few lines, but now I confirm that you didn't read anything about the post :-)

oh my. The charge is there to counter the tensile stresses of the material as the angular velocities gets above the order of the speed of sound in the material

Field emission works with electrons pal. If you make the charge density positive by removing electrons, there are no electrons to emit. That's on the paragraph before the last line. That's how I know you couldn't bother to read the last paragraphs

Also, your comment about field emission shows that you couldn't bother yourself to read the last paragraphs. Tsk, tsk

comment Anti-matter repelled by gravity - is it a serious hypothesis?
I've been recently trying to find a reference for experimental data regarding photon gas degeneracy. Theoretically is expected to be 2 for two polarizations, but haven't found any paper comparing the equilibrium properties in an experiment. Do you what I should look?
