Fuel cell history updating
He mixed hydrogen and oxygen in the presence of an electrolyte, and produced electricity and water.
The invention, which later became known as a fuel cell, didn't produce enough electricity to be useful.
During the early 1960s, General Electric produced the fuel-cell-based electrical power system for NASA's Gemini and Apollo space capsules.
European car makers have so far ignored a Greenpeace project for a super-efficient car consuming only 3 liters of gasoline per 100 km.In the 1920s, fuel cell research in Germany paved the way to the development of the carbonate cycle and solid oxide fuel cells of today.In 1932, engineer Francis T Bacon began his vital research into fuels cells.In 1998, Iceland announced plans to create a hydrogen economy in cooperation with German car maker Daimler Benz and Canadian fuel cell developer Ballard Power Systems.The 10-year plan would convert all transportation vehicles, including Iceland's fishing fleet, over to fuel-cell-powered vehicles.
" should be the question "What's so great about pollution, changing the climate or running out of oil, natural gas and coal?
