Looks like now we will need to redefine "Dry Ice"

Re: "Hydrophobic Water" !

If only meteorologists and astronomers could platinum electro-plate unsafe meteorites and comets in space! If ice cannot build up upon their surfaces, then they would not get heavier and heavier with crystals. That might stop some of the possibilities of meteor damage and also unsafe ultra-violet rays shining through space ice in the Spring.

I wonder if hydro companies know about platinum and frosting. For some reason I have the belief ,through Hydro engineers , that platinum can cause cooling as itself. Platinum plating sounds like a good thing for freezers, etc.

This also sounds like a good way to treat maritime shorelines, where there is ice damming and possible water damages to the shore.

What an intersting magazine this is!!

The only way that could work is if the oxygen of the surface water gained orbital stability from the platinum. This would change the pull of the electrons from its hydrogen, allowing the hydrogen of the surface layer water to lower their hydrogen bonding potential. The hydrogen would now act like organic hydrogen. The test of this theory would be to see if an oil layer has no surface tension.
