Mindmistress (Caption): Niven's General Product Hulls had their interatomic bonds strengthened by a power plant.  Not too shabby an idea.  If you can strengthen those interatomic bonds, you would create an augmented solidity resisitent to immense impact---to incredible tempeartures.  The uses would be wide-ranging.  Revolutionary. Manned bathyscape-like spacecraft exploring Jupiter's crushing pressures? (Aside: Gustav Holst's musical suite is based on astorlogy, not astronomy. Jupiter meant jollity.) Unmanned probes to the sun's core?  Why not? Living systems would be trickier, though. Living systems would be trickier, though.  Vicki's right about that.
