This makes less sense than the previous post.

What part are you having trouble with?
The universe is made of elements. We should theoretically be able to manipulate these real actual physical objects in order to recreate reactions that often or uncommonly occur.
Agree or disagree?
Have I said anything so absolutely crazy that extends beyond the above two sentences?
Ok so far. That's what chemistry does. So where do you want to go from there?
I want to do some actual research within a small group of individuals, formulate some type of actual hypothesis based on natural observations of what heavenly body might host such an event consistently. Then I would like to try some sort of experiment that could reveal some sort of knowledge on the "matter".
Your whole concept does not make much sense. There are heavenly bodies that have all of the natural elements - one that comes to mind is earth.
You're saying lets mix all of the chemicals together and see what happens; maybe something new will happen. It doesn't work like that. The chemicals that will react will form molecules and the nonreactive elements will just sit there. The oxygen might react with the iron so then it will not be available to react with the hydrogen. Many of the reactions are temperature dependent so as the temeprature changes different reactions will occur.
What hypothesis do you think could be formulated? Chemically we already know what would happen. :shrug:
Yeah but they aren't touching like sweaty lesbians in gym class. And they don't seem to have the current ability to go supernova on the atomic scale. Wait that's not right... a supernova never holds the elements to a force of gravity so it must be a working model of something larger in the universe.
Or in other words... Not the correct statistical approach to the question.
Whoa boy. Try to go in order. Hydrogen, helium, lithium, beryllium... And if that is too difficult to follow just fold the table in half until it's square. You think I would just throw them in? How would I replicate the results?
You could say something about density. You could hypothesize something about it's photovoltaic properties. You could try to guess what reaction happens at which temperature. You could study the spectroscopy. You could even guess which color.
So we could kill many birds with one stone.
So go to a chemical supply store, pick up samples of all the elements, (getting some tanks of the gases), and start mixing.
Let us know if you survive.
I don't have the proper type of accoutrements or bank account to handle that type of purchase. Other than that I'm completely willing. I need a closed nuclear facility... Who ownes 3 mile island?
As a poster, I suggest that the OP looks into Combinatorial Chemistry.
As the moderator, I'm going to note that the OP has been well and truely answered, there would likely be a big messy radioactive explosion as the Group 1&2 elements combined with the Group 16 & 17 elements, and there would be a whole bunch of unreacted leftovers.
And then I'm going to close the thread before it degenerates further into uselessness.
