Hydrogen seems like a great idea to me but ive been to the BMW museum seen how it all works but forgoten all that lol but i remember that a problem they have is keeping the tank with the hydrogen strong enough there were videos of them throwing the fuel cells of crains n stuff

Condensed hydrogen is extremely cold. When most materials come in to contact with something that cold, they freeze instantly, causing them to shatter.

The tanks are usually made of resin (my Dad made these back in the '70s & '80s. He also made rocket launchers out
of the same stuff). I think carbon fiber string is wound around a form & sprayed w/ the resin, not sure from there.

I was a 10-year-old kid then & don't remember the specifics from when he showed me around the plant.

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it's meant to be.

If not, point & laugh when it flies into a woodchipper.
