Rydberg Molecules Are Molecules With Electron

Rydberg molecules are molecules with an electron in an atomic orbital with principal quantum number 11 one higher than the valence shells of the constituent atoms. Speculate about the existence of ‘hyper Rydberg’ H2 formed from two H atoms with 1005 electrons. Make reasonable guesses about the binding energy, the equilibrium intern clear separation, the vibrational force constant, and the rotational constant. Is such a molecule likely to exist under any circumstances?
