2017: Metallic hydrogen created

This is an exciting time. One of the most potentially valuable materials on the planet was just created. Nearly a century after it was theorized, Harvard scientists have succeeded in creating the rarest – and potentially one of the most valuable – materials on the planet. The material – atomic metallic hydrogen – was created by Thomas D. Cabot Professor of the Natural Sciences Isaac Silvera and post-doctoral fellow Ranga Dias. In addition to helping scientists answer fundamental questions about the nature of matter, the material is theorized to have a wide range of applications, including as a room-temperature superconductor. …  “This is the holy grail of high-pressure physics,” Silvera said. “It’s the first-ever sample of metallic hydrogen on Earth, so when you’re looking at it, you’re looking at something that’s never existed before.” To create it, Silvera and Dias squeezed a tiny hydrogen sample at 495 gigapascals, or […] Read More

1988: Has The Philosopher’s Stone Been Found?

SUPERCONDUCTIVITY AND MODERN ALCHEMY In March of 1988, David Hudson filed U.S. and worldwide patents on eleven orbitally rearranged monatomic elements, ORMES, which he discovered in a form not previously recognized. This is a totally new form of matter, the confirmation of which will be presented by Mr. Hudson with scientific references and data compiled by some of the most acclaimed research laboratories in the world. David Hudson is a fourth generation Arizona farmer who became interested in extracting gold and silver from the tailings of old mining sites near his 675-acre farm. When he began the recovery process he soon discovered that gold and silver were being lost because of the buildup of a powdery substance referred to as “ghost gold” by many miners and metallurgists. Hudson’s curiosity led him to work with spectroscopists at Cornell University and other labs to discover the elemental ingredients of this powder. […] Read More
