Another closed mind, unwilling to accept independent evidence, color me surprised. Here's where you're probably going wrong, alexander.
You seem to think the equivalent of delta H is the bond energy, and since UV light is > delta H on this graph, titanium will disintegrate. The true binding energy is given by E sub A. You need at least that much energy, a much higher value than UV light can provide, to disintegrate titanium. You will end up spending a net amount of energy equal to a much lower value, delta H, because when the bond breaks it will release most of the energy back.
Or you could have just accepted the mountains of independent video and photographic evidence of ISS that shows you're doing something wrong in your observations.
