M. Eiles/Purdue University By Andy Coghlan Chemists have a plan to make ghosts in the lab, by bonding an atom to a patch of empty space.

Now, theorists have worked out how to trick a single hydrogen atom to form a bond with nothing, by luring the atom’s lone electron into the same position and state it would be in a real bond.
