How an atom forms a 'ghost' bond with a partner that isn't there
Nature.com
A highly excited atom that includes a loosely bound electron has the weird ability to form 'trilobite' chemical bonds. Such bonds are created by the small attraction between the electron and a second atom in its lowest energy state. The electron is ...

Sitting There For Five Hundred Million Years
Science Magazine (blog)
This paper is really a tour de force of analytical chemistry, because it does something that I didn't think was possible. The team is looking at a rather ancient creature, Dickinsonia. In fact, you could argue that it's the ancient creature, since it's ...

Already Weird Atoms Get Stranger, May Hold Ability to Bond with 'Nothing'
Live Science
Trilobite molecules were first predicted to exist in 2000 and experimentally observed 15 years later. But now, Greene and his team predict that there is a way to "trick" the Rydberg atom into forming a bond with, well, nothing. All they needed to do ...

Chemists predict ghostly molecule
Chemical & Engineering News
Through computational simulations, they predict the resulting trilobite-like electron density would last several milliseconds at 10 K. Like with non-ghost trilobite molecules, these densities would be large—as much as 2,500 angstroms long—and have ...

The distant electron orbit that is key to large trilobite molecules might also enable Rydberg hydrogen atoms to 'bond' with a point in empty space, new research suggests. That bond with literal nothingness would be extremely brief - but it could open ...

Mack Williams: Some memories of Pastor Floyd W. Bost

“It's also useful because when you look at a dinosaur, coral or trilobite fossil in a museum, it's their hard parts. So it's animals that had bones, teeth or shells. Lots of animals, such as worms, don't have hard parts but their burrows in the mud ...
