hydrogen is one of the things we must do. If you have not read Tommorrow's
Energy, Hydrogen, Fuel Cells, and the prospects for a Cleaner Planet, by Peter
Hoffmann, MIT Press 0-262-08295-0 or checked www.israel21c.org you might enjoy them as

By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
