"The Holy Grail of high-pressure physics": Metallic hydrogen, once theory, becomes reality
Posted: Posted January 26th by nullfather

Nearly a century after it was theorized, Harvard scientists have succeeded in creating the rarest - and potentially one of the most valuable - materials on the planet.

The material - atomic metallic hydrogen - was created by Thomas D. Cabot Professor of the Natural Sciences Isaac Silvera and post-doctoral fellow Ranga Dias. In addition to helping scientists answer fundamental questions about the nature of matter, the material is theorized to have a wide range of applications, including as a room-temperature superconductor. The creation of the rare material is described in a January 26 paper published in Science.

Whoa that's awesome, especially the room-temp superconductor part. Is it stable? What color is it? Would it make a badass-looking sword?

I don't know enough about the underlying physics to say. I just found the article very interesting.

Predicted in 1935, I remember discussing this in school in the back in the 70s, so yes, this is exciting news for me.
