Hydrogen turns into a metal inside giant planets

The alpha geek and researchers from IBM, EPFL, and the University of Cambridge did biomimicry of interactions between the hydrogen atoms using Machine Learning to subdue the size and timescale limitation of even the powerful computers. Changes in hydrogen are not sudden but rather smooth and gradual.

Hydrogen is a combination of one proton and one electron, which is a simple and important element of the universe. It is a supreme component in some planets of our solar system like Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune -also some exoplanets.

On the surfaces of the planet, the hydrogen remains a gas. However, in the interior of the planets, the pressure increases due to which hydrogen has a transactional phase; the covalent bonds of the hydrogen break, and the gas becomes metals that can conduct electricity.

With join efforts of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Quantum Mechanics, the whizzes have discovered how hydrogen becomes metal. Future studies in the same field will be possible if there is an integration of Machine Learning, Quantum Mechanics, and Statistical Mechanics.
