I could not find a good representation of an iron star. Here is a globular cluster instead.
“In astronomy, an iron star is a hypothetical type of compact star that could occur in the universe in the extremely far future, after perhaps 101500 years.
The premise behind iron stars states that cold fusion occurring via quantum tunnelling would cause the light nuclei in ordinary matter to fuse into iron-56 nuclei. Fission and alpha-particle emission would then make heavy nuclei decay into iron, converting stellar-mass objects to cold spheres of iron. The formation of these stars is only a possibility if protons do not decay. Though the surface of a neutron star may be iron, according to some predictions, it is distinct from an iron star.
Unrelatedly, the term is also used for blue supergiants which have a forest of forbidden FeII lines in their spectra. They are potentially quiescent hot luminous blue variables. Eta Carinae has been described as a prototypical example”.

Coca Cola and Pool Chlorine
What Will Happen If You Mix Coke and Pool Chlorine?
Watch this strange chemical reaction – Coca Cola and Pool Chlorine
The small amount of phosphoric acid in the Coke sets off a chemical reaction with the calcium hypochlorite, producing poisonous chlorine gas and a spectacular little explosion.
2H3PO4 + 3Ca(ClO)2 = 6HClO + Ca3(PO4)2
For a few seconds, nothing happens when the two come into contact with each other.
However, moments later, bubbles can be seen violently floating to the top, ultimately pouring outside the glass in a “spectacular little explosion.” PLEASE DO NOT THIS EXPERIMENT AT HOME☡

Having a mentor can be invaluable as you advance your career. Mentors not only help hone your knowledge and skills, but can also open doors to new professional contacts and opportunities. Learn from your lab colleagues about how they leveraged the talents of their mentors to guide them on their career paths with link in bio or type http://bit.ly/2K9aPfa in browser. #ASCP#career#careertip#laboratory#pathology#labmedicine#mentor#mentoring#careeradvancement

Teczka z moimi zadaniami autorskimi coraz grubsza❤️ - jeszcze troszkę i koniec! 👍🏼🤓😱 💫 „ Rób to, co kochasz a znajdziesz w sobie siłę” 💫 | PS kawa z 🐸 jakby co 😅 PS 2 Przypominam! TYLKO do jutra możecie zakupić moje notatki z organicznej - info 📥 Aaaa i dziękuję wszystkim za komentarze pod poprzednim zdjęciem - co człowiek to opinia, jedno jest pewne - edukacja w Polsce idealna nie jest, może kiedyś się to zmieni 🤷🏻♀️ Miłego weekendu 👩🏻🔬❤️ 🐻

Ed ecco il risultato: due tavoli ikea da 6€, un foglio di plexiglass tagliato in 4, qualche vite e cerniera, dopodiché ho stampato un anello guida per il filo e dei piedini smontabili per unire il tutto. Come piccolo tocco personale ho incollato una barra a led per illuminare l'interno. Ed ecco una box per la stampante. Come spendere 34 euro per risparmiarne 150. Prossimamente: maniglia e chiusura magnetica, sistema extra di areazione e un nome...devo stampare un nome.
Turpentines are semifluid substances consisting of resins dissolved in a volatile oil extracted from pine trees; this mixture is separable by various distillation techniques into a volatile portion called oil (or spirit) of turpentine and a nonvolatile portion called rosin.
Oil of turpentine is a colourless, oily, odorous, flammable, water-immiscible liquid with a hot, disagreeable taste. It is a good solvent for sulphur, phosphorus, resins, waxes, oils, and natural rubber. It hardens upon exposure to air. Chemically, oil of turpentine is a mixture of cyclic monoterpene hydrocarbons, the predominant constituent being pinene.
The largest use of turpentine oil is now in the chemical industry, as a raw material in the synthesis of resins, insecticides, oil additives, and synthetic pine oil and camphor. Turpentine oil is also used as a rubber solvent in the manufacture of plastics.
