So, it took 8 decades for scientists to finally make metallic hydrogen...

...and the only sample has now mysterious vanished.

They don't know whether it was misplaced from its safe, ultra cold storage, whether it spontaneously degraded, or whether it was stolen by a supervillain.

(I'm inventing the last, but I suppose theft is one explanation...)

Most likely, it wasn't long term stable and turned back into gas...
