They are thinking "room temperature" superconductor with metalic hydrogen. Screw diamonds... use graphene.

As matter of fact, screw metallic hydrogen. Use purple bronze in that graphene press.

Purple bronze, you mean Hepatizon ?

Red mercury (actually more purple then red) is the stuff made in the Nazi torsion field devices die glocke. Torsion field radiation has strange influence on many substances for example it is possible to produce large quantity's of steel with virtually no carbon and no crystal structure.

I know about magnetics, I did a system like that for a forge. It's actually a modified version of my adiabatic reactor. In another application we permanently altered the resonant frequencies of dielectrics. However, red mercury, from my experience is a myth. When I worked for the military, I had access to things you wouldn't believe, I held the same clearance as the chief of CI and there was no red mercury.

Red mercury is unstabilised mercury, it is highly radioactive and the Nazis made it by accident. The torsion field generator they were using used large quantity's of liquid mercury. During operation it was found the mercury became highly radioactive (weapons grade). It is called red because it was being manufactured in Russia. After the war the Americans and Russians both scrambled to pickup the Nazi Scientists. It was decided to officially declare red mercury a myth because it poses a massive security threat. It is not something we would want those Jihad nutters getting their hands on. It is made by adding a small quantity of radioactive material to liquid mercury before putting the mixture into a die glocke type generator. I would not be surprised if most of the nuclear warheads of the old USSR contained this material rather then weapons grade uranium or plutonium.

Torsion field radiation can unstabalise a heavy element making it radioactive but it can also do the reverse, hovering above a nuclear missile silo you can cause the radioactive warheads to decrease in radioactivity effectively making the missiles useless as weapons.

Superconductors can make engines smaller and more powerful. Room temperature superconductors would be easier to handle than superconductors that need to be cooled down to liquid nitrogen temperatures. Ceramic superconductors have had a lot of problems for applications because of brittleness and other issues.

Room temperature metal superconductors with very high critical current could make superstrong magnets. Powerful magnets could be used to solve challenges getting to commercial energy generation from nuclear fusion. - If newly created metallic hydrogen stays stable when brought back to regular pressure as predicted by theory then eventually the world will radically change.

As magnetic field strength increases the ability to confine plasma scales to the fourth power. If the metallic hydrogen is used and it is room temperature then you solve half the problem to nuclear fusion right there! And if you put it in an engine you would drastically cut size and weight down which saves on fuel.

One of the scientists who created the lab samples thinks it would be an ideal rocket fuel. Looks like the guys at Next big future are really keen (thy have three stories up right now!) and are excited. I think everybody should here about this!

It was just what I was into when I posted! It has some of the properties of a superconductor already. Strange stuff also being investigated.

ed mercury is a hoax substance of uncertain composition purportedly used in the creation of nuclear bombs, as well as a variety of unrelated weapons systems. In reality, no such substance exists.

It is purported to be mercuric iodide, a poisonous, odorless, tasteless, water-insoluble scarlet-red powder that becomes yellow when heated above 126 °C, due to a thermochromatic change in crystalline structure.[1][2] However, samples of "red mercury" obtained from arrested would-be terrorists invariably consisted of nothing more than various red dyes or powders of little value, which may have been sold as part of a campaign intended to flush out potential nuclear smugglers.

The "red mercury" hoax was first reported in 1979, and was commonly discussed in the media in the 1990s. Prices as high as $1,800,000 per kilogram were reported.[3]

To create it, Silvera and Dias squeezed a tiny hydrogen sample at 495 gigapascal, or more than 71.7 million pounds-per-square inch - greater than the pressure at the center of the Earth. At those extreme pressures, Silvera explained, solid molecular hydrogen -which consists of molecules on the lattice sites of the solid - breaks down, and the tightly bound molecules dissociate to transforms into atomic hydrogen, which is a metal.


"One prediction that's very important is metallic hydrogen is predicted to be meta-stable," Silvera said. "That means if you take the pressure off, it will stay metallic, similar to the way diamonds form from graphite under intense heat and pressure, but remains a diamond when that pressure and heat is removed."

Understanding whether the material is stable is important, Silvera said, because predictions suggest metallic hydrogen could act as a superconductor at room temperatures.

"That would be revolutionary," he said. "As much as 15 percent of energy is lost to dissipation during transmission, so if you could make wires from this material and use them in the electrical grid, it could change that story.", Jan. 26, 2017 - Metallic hydrogen, once theory, becomes reality.

Uh, reported that it was created by these guys in November of last year! Now the story has hit the press and everybody else is picking itup.

I was waiting patiently to see if their samples were meta stable. They said they were going to slowly raise the temperature on one of the samples. THAT news is why I searched the term only to see "scientists create metallic hydrogen"!! At least they have some numbers with the announcement. And another interesting tidbit...

"Diamonds are polished with diamond powder, and that can gouge out carbon from the surface," Silvera said. "When we looked at the diamond using atomic force microscopy, we found defects, which could cause it to weaken and break."

The solution, he said, was to use a reactive ion etching process to shave a tiny layer - just five microns thick, or about one-tenth of a human hair - from the diamond's surface. The diamonds were then coated with a thin layer of alumina to prevent the hydrogen from diffusing into their crystal structure and embrittling them.

(same source)

At those forces they would push the hydrogen into the diamonds! There are few more examples of what a room temperature superconductor can do at the article.

My question is, why did it take so long to announce this to the press? They announced this on twitter in Nov. 2016. WTH?! Keeping it secret? Wait until the new president comes in? Align with the other "master plans" or what ever?

They still have not announced if it is meta stable... and it is nearly February 2017.
