This is a better chance of working than more of the Solyndra give a ways that are so common with our money. Hydrogen is truly the fuel of the future and deserves developing.

I could not help but notice that someone said give it to the Navy because there is plenty of sea water. In nuclear submarines they have to get rid of the hydrogen after getting oxygen from the water.
