How is it formed?[edit]

Could a knowledgeable editor add a section describing how solid hydrogen is produced? Comet Tuttle (talk) 19:04, 24 February 2010 (UTC)

Removal of inappropriate wording and content[edit]

I am removing the paragraph about the dream of the hydrogen only being realized by overcoming the stigma of the Hindenburg for two reasons. One, It was not written in an encyclopedic style (see WP:WTW). Two, I do not think the content pertained to the article. I am not an expert, but I think that absorption of hydrogen in a solid is very different than solid hydrogen.BenPlotke (talk) 22:32, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Can someone add info on how pressure relates to solid hydrogen; is it stable in a vacuum or not? If it is, why don't we see a lot of solid hydrogen in space, where the temperature goes as low as 3K? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.111.174.70 (talk) 21:21, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

Is solid hydrogen metallic?[edit]

I think this is a very good question because it is simple and relevant. Based on an inference from the article Metallic Hydrogen it seems sold hydrogen is NOT metallic, but I am not an expert in high-pressure/low-temperature states of Hydrogen! Anyway, an explicit statement from an expert would be appreciated! Hydradix (talk) 05:00, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
