I thought I might try this here -- someone might know... I have a very specific question for chemistry buffs out there. If you mix chlorine gas and methane, then shine a bright white light on them, you get an effect called photochlorination, the result being a big bang. Would this work at exceedingly low temperatures i.e. with methane being liquid (-162C) and the chlorine (I believe) being solid at that temperature?

Neal: You might also want to ask this over at Speculations Rumor Mill under "The Expert Is In!" topic: http://www.speculations.com/rumormill/?z=148304 Lots of brainy, science-y types hang out over there.

Thanks for that -- I'll take a look.
