Physicists Discover a Strange New Theoretical Phase of Hydrogen

Posted by in categories: food, physics, robotics/AI

This new solid hydrogen phase discovered by an international team of researchers followed the model’s presentation of hydrogen molecules under extreme conditions: to use a food analogy, their shape morphed from spheres stacked like a pile of oranges to something that more closely resembled eggs.

Hydrogen typically requires very low temperatures and very high pressures to form a solid. It was through a novel machine learning study of this particular phase change that the scientists came across the new molecular arrangement.
