Scientists from the University of Lyon have discovered a new way to split hydrogen gas from water, using rocks.
The method promises a new green energy source, providing copious hydrogen from a simple mixture of rock and water.
It speeds up a chemical reaction that takes geological timescales in nature.
In the reaction, the mineral olivine strips one oxygen and hydrogen atom from an H2O molecule to form a mineral called serpentine, releasing the spare hydrogen atom.
Does this mean we can get rid of “crappy” hybrid and electric cars now?
What is there to say about the McLaren MP4-12C? It’s gorgeous, it takes down Ferraris on the track, it rides like a dream (not like a sports car), and is a perfectly engineered piece of auto. In the words of Ferris Bueller - “It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up”
