So, are/could nuclear orbitals be a real thing?
Electron orbitals have been imaged directly: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v498/n7452/full/498009d.htmlElectrons absolutely do adhere to the shapes that orbitals say they should. That makes them real enough for me.
What is the form of hydrogen used in the experiment? Is atomic or molecular?If it is atomic, how to prevent them from forming diatomic molecule?If it is molecular, how can it produce rotationally symmetrical pattern?
