Metallic Hydrogen: Superconductor Discovery and Skeptics

Hydrogen is the first element of Group 1 of the periodic table and is abundant in nature. They have one proton and one elector. Freezing at 253-degree centigrade hydrogen become liquid and is widely used in Rocket fuel. Under normal atmospheric pressure hydrogen atom pair up to form the hydrogen molecule. The metallic property of the hydrogen is displayed when it loses the electron.
First Hypothesis on Metallic Hydrogen
The scientist named Eugene Wigner and Hillard Bell Huntington, the Princeton physicist hypothesized that massive pressure on the hydrogen turns it into the metal. This was hypothesized in the year 1935 (1). Until now there has not been any successful experiment to test this hypothesis.

Metallic Hydrogen Discovery
The Post-doctorate researcher Dr. Silvera and Ranga P. Dias has published the finding of metallic hydrogen in Journal science. The published journal claims that they have made metallic hydrogen by applying 495 Gigapascals pressure at the temperature -268-degr…
