"[Palladium] is easily destroyed by heat"
What kind of heat are we talking about, the heat at the center of a red giant where palladium is formed ?
Because what palladium we have mined and refined around here has been smelted, if I'm not mistaken, so it can easily hold up under several hundred degrees of heat at least.
If palladium can be destroyed by the heat of where it is created, how can there be any that exist out here ?
I'm confused now.
