  So... Coulomb explosions are the reason why.

All from alkaline metals exploding in water. And, the team also found out how to effectively suppress such explosions.

filthy misogynerd

why is he saving MALE factory workers lives, why doesn't he save FEMALE factory workers lives?

becuase he wants FEMALES to die that's why!

That's pretty fucking neat.

So who else wants to weaponize this? I'm thinking of testing some sodium airgun pellets.

I could see it working on sea mines

For years I've been thinking of hollowing out a shotgun slug and filling it with sodium or potassium, then melting some lead back onto it in a thin layer to seal it up.

Hopefully it would fire as usual, but go FUCKING BOOM when inside something fleshy and mostly water.

Hold up. The guy was going on about the electron transfer between the sodium and water being pretty severe. Isn't there some way we could use that to generate power? Extruding sodium into a water jet would be pretty E-Z, and looking at how energetic the reaction is, I bet it would give you a lot of juice in a short time. Taser/laser/railgun power source?

The Sodium projectile thing has been done before, I'm sure.

Tangentially related.

The issue I see with this is stability. If you could figure out some sort of sodium (or other alkali metal) compound that would only react with a specific (probably aqueous) reagent to produce a similar reaction then maybe it could work but as it is pure alkali metals are pretty sensitive to humidity and the like and would be a poor choice for a power source.

You've seen 3d-printing cartridges, right? Just have a bunch of sodium wire coiled up and packed in grease. if you can get the grease off the wire while it's being fed into the guts, there's no reason to worry about humidity.

So, design a print head with a felt tip marker style alcohol tip, so that wire feeds through it, into the head, then into the bullet, then load it.

Would be easier, tbh, to buy sodium wire chunks, and swage them. Then, tumble them with a light coat of brittle varnish, and good to go to load.

You could design a hollow point, so that when the petals open, it exposes a lithium 'pellet'. If you make it a liquid nougant center, it'd work.
