New Approach to Finding Extraterrestrial Life

A new study argues that our best chances of using atmospheres to find evidence of life is to broaden our search from focusing on planets like our own to include those with a hydrogen atmosphere.

Researchers engineer photosynthetic bacteria to produce hydrogen

Engineering a version of photosynthesis that might be useful for fuel production is challenging. Now, german researchers have rearranged some photosynthetic proteins to make bacteria emit hydrogen when exposed to light.

UK pilot project mixes "green" hydrogen with natural gas

A pilot project at Keele University is pumping out a mix of 80 percent natural gas and 20 percent hydrogen made by electrolysis in a shipping container sized unit.

Researchers find evidence for metallic hydrogen

Researchers long ago theorized that if hydrogen gas were exposed to enough pressure, it would transition into a metal. Recent results indicate that hydrogen does become a solid at 425 gigapascals.

Wind company bets hydrogen is key to climate goals

Orsted, a Danish company, anticipates that the scale and efficiency of wind farms at sea can play a crucial role to supply heavy industry with green hydrogen. Hydrogen is one of the few fuels that can burn hot enough to make steel and cement.

Discovery could accelerate way to green hydrogen future

Bioscience experts in Belgium have developed a new solar panel capable of producing hydrogen from moisture in the air. Scientists claim to produce significant quantities of hydrogen gas - up to 250 litres per day.

Self-sufficient hydrogen boat embarks on 6-year journey around the world

The Energy Observer, a catamaran powered by solar, wind, and hydrogen, will sail around the world for six years.

Solar Paint Could Be a Big Step in the Race to Replace Carbon-Based Fuels

Researchers in Australia have developed a paint for roofs and other surfaces that turns moisture in the air into hydrogen, a sustainable form of energy.

German 'Largest Artificial Sun' To Generate Climate Friendly Fuel

Dubbed the “artificial Sun”, the Synlight uses concentrated light to power Thermochemical Water Splitting (TWS.) The Synlight project will mimic the effect of intense, continuous solar energy, something that is not readily available in Germany.

Liquid Hydrogen May Be Way Forward for Sustainable Air Travel

Eminent physicist Jo Hermans acknowledges that achieving sustainable transport in the post-fossil fuel era will be a huge challenge— but finds that liquid hydrogen could offer a potential solution for future air travel.

It's real: Metallic hydrogen has been created for the first time

More than 80 years after it was first predicted, physicists have created metallic hydrogen - a mysterious form of hydrogen that could be capable of superconducting electricity without resistance at room temperature.

This Is the Most Detailed Hydrogen Map of the Milky Way Ever Created 

Using two of the world's largest configurable telescopes, scientists have created the most detailed map yet of hydrogen atoms the Milky Way.
