The "Big Bang" Theory

The government is offering shares of a ten million dollar reward (dubbed the "H-Prize") for scientists, inventors and entrepreneurs who can successfully find technological advances in the production, storage, distribution and utilization of hydrogen as an alternative fuel. Also up for grabs, is up to four million dollars for whoever can create and develop a working prototype vehicle that runs solely on hydrogen. Although many auto makers have already designed and built many duel fuel (gasoline/hydrogen) vehicles, not one them has been able to operate completely on hydrogen. Quite honestly, I think finding an viable alternative fuel source is long overdue. But what really scares me, is that we have to invent spill proof gas cans because people can't handle such a fuel responsibly ... now we're going to trust them with hydrogen?
