    Where can you bring the plasma sample to the part where the surrounding pressure matches the plasma sample and doesnt collapse (implode/explode) nor does it cool off becoming gas or any other state that isnt plasma? And which sample do you need for this to be theoretically possible?
    I do not know neither science nor math.
