A Breakthrough for Hydrogen Storage?

Technology from the Soviet space program adapted by Israeli and German scientists may offer a safe way to deliver the volatile gas to power laptops and cars

Israeli entrepreneur Moshe Stern admits he didn't know much about alternative energy when Russian scientist Evgeny Velikhov first approached him in 2005 about a novel technology for safely storing hydrogen gas. But four years later, the 62-year-old Stern has become an expert—and a believer. He is convinced that the Russian invention could play a major role in helping scientific institutions and industrial giants harness the commercial potential of hydrogen as a green energy source.
