    I wonder if the surface is stronger because of the density of the material? Or if the material itself has a unique chemical composition that makes it so strong.

    I'm skeptical of science that wasn't proven up close, or measured directly by means that uses the same properties that measures them.

    Two thing about science that was retracted.
    "Atoms cannot be created" --Science book pre 199?
    "Nothing comes out of a black hole" -- Steven Hawking

    Plus the word "likely" is used...
    The world will likely exploded in a couple of days.
    or more realistically... Los Angeles will likely have "THE BIG ONE" (earthquake) tomorrow.

    Note to self: surface of stars is solid. Not safe to walk on, though.
