Harvard Scientists Create Metallic Hydrogen, a "Holy Grail" Metal with Revolutionary Potential

Scientists from Harvard University claim to have created metallic hydrogen, a new metal with revolutionary potential applications. 

Since 1935, when it was first theorized, scientists have been trying to create metallic hydrogen, a new material with revolutionary potential applications. Now scientists from Harvard University published a paper in Science where they claim to have created it. If confirmed by further tests, the metallic hydrogen could become not only the rarest, but also one of the most valuable materials on Earth. Unfortunately, that precious metallic hydrogen sample – potentially the first of its kind – has just disappeared in the Harvard lab.
