Creation of Jupiter interior, a step towards room temp superconductivity
Osaka, Japan (SPX) Dec 21, 2015
Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, and a major component of stars such as the Sun, as well as gas-giant planets such as Jupiter and Saturn. In recent years, hydrogen's behavior at high temperature and high pressure has been in the realm of interest not only for planetary science, but also for fields such as materials science for the purpose of achieving a hydrogen energy society. However, since hydrogen is both a highly diffusive and highly reactive element, it is difficult to ... read more
