Hot hydrogen atoms in Earth's upper atmosphere found

A team of University of Illinois researchers has discovered the existence of hot atomic hydrogen (H) atoms in an upper layer of Earth's atmosphere known as thermosphere.

'Mars-quakes' could produce energy source to support life

'Mars-quakes' could produce energy source to support life

Rocks formed by the grinding together of other rocks during earthquakes are rich in trapped hydrogen and similar seismic activity on Mars may produce enough hydrogen to support life, a study says.

Oceans may have massive reserve of hydrogen

Oceans may have massive reserve of hydrogen

Recent discoveries of free hydrogen gas, which was once thought to be very rare, have been made near slow-spreading tectonic plates deep beneath Earth's continents and under the sea.

Scientists detect hydrogen gas in distant galaxy

A team of scientists for the first time has detected a faint signal emitted by hydrogen gas in a more than five billion light years away which is almost double the previous record.

US scientists create efficient hydrogen biofuel

Scientists at a US university have created a highly efficient biomaterial that catalyses the formation of hydrogen -- one half of the "holy grail" of splitting H2O to make hydrogen and oxygen for fuelling cheap and efficient cars that run on water.

New 'nano-reactor' to produce hydrogen biofuel

Scientists have created a cheap and highly efficient biomaterial that catalyses the formation of hydrogen, an advance that may lead to new environmentally friendly ways of producing biofuel.

Getting closer to hydrogen-powered cars

Getting closer to hydrogen-powered cars

Hydrogen fuel is desirable because, unlike gasoline, it doesn't release carbon into the atmosphere when burned. 

Soon, hydrogen powered gadgets that last for weeks

Apple is said to be working on laptops and smartphones powered by hydrogen fuel cells that would last for weeks without needing to be refuelled.

CERN scientists trap `antimatter`

Scientists at CERN said they had trapped dozens of hydrogen `antimatter` atoms.
