NASA funding $8.1 university research into hydrogen production
: "NASA wants to find a better way to get the volatile gas closer to its shuttle launch pad at Kennedy Space Center. Currently, the hydrogen is produced near New Orleans and hauled at freezing temperatures in tanker trucks. It takes 50 trucks to haul the more than 300,000 pounds of hydrogen fuel needed for each shuttle launch. Costs of hauling the fuel 600 miles between Louisiana and Florida range in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. .. NASA also wants to find a cleaner alternative to existing industrial methods of producing hydrogen, which release large amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere" 11:21:20 PM
