Plus it's just very annoying that a setting that calls itself Transhuman Space lacks such a basic non-TL^, mere TL9 technology despite being closer to TL10 than 9 in general.
HEDM was not a thing in 3e. TL9 or otherwise. Complaints that TS doesn't ft a 4e tech projection are anachronistic.

As for the Real world, the last I heard there may, just _may_ be a sample of stabilized metallic hydrogen in a cryostat awaiting analysis. That was a couple of months ago. We can't et say whether or not this will ever be an important technology.
