Researchers at Harvard University create metallic hydrogen
which acts like a superconductor while UCL reports evidence of the oldest forms of life on Earth.
The metallic hydrogen
mantle is the source of the planet's magnetic field.
Jupiter does not have a molten metal core; instead, its magnetic field is created by a core of compressed liquid metallic hydrogen
," said the report.
It's the first-ever sample of metallic hydrogen
on Earth, so when you're looking at it, you're looking at something that's never existed before.
We do not believe that conditions exist in stars for solid metallic hydrogen
to form," says Harvard University physicist Isaac Silvera.
Scientists are tantalizingly close to producing the first samples of solid metallic hydrogen
using powerful lasers, electrical impulses, and other cutting edge equipment.
He added that Jupiter is the fifth planet from the sun and it is about 1,400 times larger in volume than the Earth, and its interior is made of rocks and metallic hydrogen
Nonetheless, ample evidence exists that the Sun itself is comprised of condensed matter or, more specifically, of metallic hydrogen
They're all fluids, so the rain is really droplets of fluid helium mixed with neon falling through a fluid of metallic hydrogen

Graphene can serve as analogy and inspiration in physicists' efforts to create solid metallic hydrogen
, another theorized wonder material, which Emily Conover describes on Page 18.
Who knows what the applications will be including for those pursuing metallic hydrogen
in the laboratory, which has been hypothesised but not found yet, she said.
