    In particle physics, subatomic particles are described using tracks formed in liquid hydrogen, within a bubble chamber. An accelerated electron beam is incident to an external metallic target that collision produces the alleged subatomic particles, that have a mass, which propagate through the steel enclosure, of the bubble chamber that contains a high pressure liquid hydrogen, to form tracks in the liquid hydrogen but subatomic particles, that have a mass, cannot propagate through the steel enclosure of the bubble chamber without forming a hole, in the steel enclosure, and causing an explosion of the liquid hydrogen.

    Ummm... even we accept your premise that the subatomic particle burrows a hole (which I don't accept or reject, because I don't know any better), how much hydrogen do you really think would pass through a hole many fold smaller than its atomic radius? The hydrogen won't "explode" until it is made hot in the presence of an oxidant such as oxygen. There's none of that inside the chamber, so either the hydrogen has to get out or the oxygen needs to get in. All through a subatomic pore.

    How many of these hydrogen filled chambers have been reported to have exploded in use?

    I believe the TS has retired.
