Hydrogen, discovered in 1776 by a scientist named Cavendish, is the most abundant element in the universe. It is number 1 on the periodic table. Hydrogen is a colorless, odorless highly flammable diatomic gas. It is also the lightest gas in the universe.
In the 20th century we found a way of engineering a car that runs completely on hydrogen. The only exhaust is pure, clean water. This system, with the right body, can give off astounding MPG ratios. Like the one person hydrogen testing vehicle developed in Sweden that set the world record for best MPG’s, 12,645.9454MPG. GM already began the construction of hydrogen cars.
Hydrogen is a true ingredient in our future. The U.S. already produces 3 billion cubic ft. of hydrogen every year. It will fuel our transportation to work and to Mars. Everything, everywhere depends on hydrogen in one way or another. It is the simplest element known to man and yet we’d die without it.
