Scientists Turn Hydrogen Into a Metal

Nearly a century after it was theorized, Harvard scientists have succeeded in creating metallic hydrogen. In addition to helping scientists answer fundamental questions about the nature of matter, the material is theorized to have a wide range of applications, ranging from room-temperature superconductors to powerful rocket propellant.

An 80-year-old prediction may come true: Scientists turn hydrogen into a metal
