  • The subject of 'molybdenum phosphate' somehow crops up. JP: "I've always loved the word molybdenum and have dreamt most of my life of owning a piece of molybdenum. I don't know what it looks like, or whether it's fantastically valuable or radioactive and would kill me in seconds or what. But I want to be able to say to people, "this is a piece of molybdenum". Will it ever happen? Who can tell."
