I'm specifically thinking of the He2+ ion (alpha particle), since it is one of
the most common noble gas ions (as far as I know) and has a massive affinity
for electrons. I'd think that such would cause a rather strong bond to form,
but apparently not. So, what stops/prevents the formation of a strong bond, or
any bond at all?
