Default Re: Meteoric iron immunities

Latest best-guess from my UK quantum physicist friend is that the iron inside an iron star would be under extremely high pressure and temperature*, and would be solid metallic as a result.

From the DF viewpoint, this is going to be a one-way gate that brings in the stellar matter iron (which shares identical traits as meteoric iron) in useable form with a complex intermediary treatment that is as sophisticated as it is unseen.

Edit: *although at the extremely long time periods and theoretical near-heat-equilibrium, I wonder if it's more accurate to assume that the entire iron star is close to 0K.
