Hydrogen: Chemical element with atomic number 1.
H is the lightest, most abundant chemical element
H makes up about 75 % of the Universe's elemental mass.
Hydrogen = HHydro = Greek = water
gene = Greek = creating
Hydrogen has a simple atomic structure
- one proton + one an electron.
When scientist used the spectrum of light and the reaction with the hydrogen atom, producing or absorbing light, they got a good understanding to develop the theory of the atomic structure.
At standard temperature / pressure, hydrogen is a colorless, odorless, nonmetallic, tasteless, highly flammable diatomic gas.
H making up over 90% by number of atoms.
Most stars are mainly composed of hydrogen in its plasma state.
Water = H2O would not exist without Hydrogen
Human and animal bodies contain a lot of Hydrogen
Hydrogen gas is highly flammable and will burn in air.
H2 = Hydrogen gas
When T. Von Hohenheim - you know him better as Paracelsus who lived from 1493 to –1541 was working with metals and strong acids and found out that this chemical reaction produces a flammable gas. Over 140 years later, Robert Boyle wrote down the reaction between iron filings and dilute acids, and explained that the outcome was hydrogen gas.
Henry Cavendish identified in 1776 the gas from a metal-acid reaction as "flammable air". Ongoing tests confirmed that this gas was producing water when burned, so Cavendish is praised for the discovery of H as an element.
But a few years later, it was Antoine Lavoisier who gave the news element the name hydrogen.
The US space shuttle Engine uses Hydrogen and oxygen as a fuel. The flame is almost invisible

Hydrogen can be cracked out of fossil fuel called hydrocracking and ammonia production mostly for the fertilizer market.
Water = H2O is an abundant source for Hydrogen by electrolysis - using photovoltaic s makes this environmentally friendly with no greenhouse gases.
You cannot see a pure hydrogen-oxygen flame, because it emits ultraviolet light.
The main engine of the Space Shuttle is run by Hydrogen. Only with a flame detector it is possible to detect burning hydrogen, so leaks are difficult to find and very dangerous.
Discovered over 500 years ago, Hydrogen was used in lamps, in balloons, the Hindenburg Zeppelin was filled with Hydrogen.
Other uses were as a coolant, in batteries. Some military forces used it in Hydrogen bombs.
Our Sun's energy comes from nuclear fusion of Hydrogen. Scientists have been working doing this fusion controllable on Earth.
Hydrogen can be used in transportation - it burns relatively cleanly, with some NOx emissions, but without carbon emissions.
For about a decade Hydrogen fuel cells have been built. They use hydrogen as fuel and oxygen - out of the air as its oxidant.
Fuel cell cars and trucks are already running in many countries, they have a muffler, but all what comes out is WATER.
At our Nature Preserve in the Texas Hill County
we produce Hydrogen using the power of the sun:
A) to produce electricity with our windmill
B) to produce electricity with Photovoltaics
Sunlight is Earth's primary source of energy.
= renewable energy.
Energy that isn't producing air and water pollution
Energy we can use without burning fossil fuels!

Conservation Education (CE) is the combination of two words
that have become one word to educators.
CE is the ability to give people opportunities to grow in knowledge and create changes to their life style and their environment, to have a better life, to have a safer future!
