World's only metallic hydrogen sample disappears, if it indeed existed in the first place

Christian Science Monitor | Science

February 28, 2017 --The world's first sample of metallic hydrogen, a form of the element that scientists have long chased only to come up empty handed, mysteriously vanished from the Harvard University lab where it was created last month as researchers sought to conduct further testing on it. Considered a'holy grail' of solid-state physics, metallic hydrogen has proved too elusive to create, resulting in failed attempts throughout the past 80 years by various researchers. But the element has extreme value in its applications for conducting energy at a highly efficient rate, spurring many to attempt to create the alluring substance, which requires extremely low temperatures and high rates of pressure to form. While researchers at Harvard thought they had cracked the code in January, it seems the path forward has been stalled, at least temporarily. "Basically, it's disappeared," Isaac Silvera, the team's leader who has worked to uncover metallic hydrogen for decades, told ScienceAlert last week.


Elon Musk moves 2 Tesla colors 'off menu'

Mashable

Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted on Monday night that Tesla would "simplify manufacturing" by removing Obsidian Black Metallic and Silver Metallic from the menu of colors as of Wednesday, possibly so it can catch up on missed production deadlines and fulfill orders already placed by consumers who want to drive its new electric sedan, the Model 3. Moving 2 of 7 Tesla colors off menu on Wednesday to simplify manufacturing. Obsidian Black & Metallic Silver will still be available as special request, but at higher price. Any color beyond Solid Black already come at an additional cost, but starting Wednesday the metallic black and silver options will be moved to a "special order" status. Tesla didn't immediately respond to a request for comment as to why the metallic colors were problematic for production, or what Musk means by "higher price," but we'll update this post if we hear back. A look at current Tesla paint options before two are moved to "special order" status.
