If Hydrogen based technology became wide spread, would compact metallic hydrogen be sort of an alternative way to transport water? Well... not really water, but a means by simply 'burning' off a very small amount of compact metallic hydrogen to get back water?
Kind of the reverse of what luctor-et-ermergo is saying. Would burning off less than a gram of this stuff create about a shot glass of water?
I guess what comes to mind is when I see tons of bottled water being transported by trucks. If instead, a semitruck transported a full trailer of metallic hydrogen that could be 'burned' on site to create water, I wonder if that could yield the equivalent of what multiple trucks could have brought hauling bottled water or a water tanker.
