Stay tuned until the end of the video for a demonstration of hydrogen's lifting properties and several large explosions!
This is a demonstration of a purely chemical process to produce large quantities of hydrogen gas from common, inexpensive chemicals. Hydrogen is a highly esteemed alternative fuel candidate because its combustion with atmospheric oxygen results in only clean water vapor, rather than carbon compounds as is the case with most other fuels. It is less dense than air, which means that it can be used to lift objects into the sky.
