Dear Forum. I read something interesting in the news today that I thought you guys might find interesting. Some Researchers have created " metalic hydrogen".. You might wonder what it is, but that is hydrogen gas compressed with a force of 71700000 psi, that is more than 1,3 the presure of the presure in the earth center. So you might wonder why is this so facinating. When doing this you can create "metallic hydrogen" and it is what I will call a "super rocket fuel". The "metalic hydrogen" can also be used in electric cars and many other products". However so far it is extremly difficult to create metallic hydrogen, and also very expensive.. But as time goes by and they get better and faster at creating this, then it the price will drop ect. But maybe im not the best at explaining, but hope you guys find what you seek about the topic in the below links. http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017/01/diamond-vise-turns-hydrogen-metal-potentially-ending-80-year-quest Here is a danish article with interesting facts.
