PIONEERS: FORD MODEL T & SPIRIT OF ST. LOUIS - Today the challenge is to make automotive transport clean, in a sustainable world, for a healthier future.  Charles Lindbergh changed history on the 20th May 1927, when he crossed the Atlantic Ocean in his single engine monoplane. Has the electric aircraft come of age sufficiently to cross the Atlantic on hydrogen?

INSPIRATION: The JVH2 series of World Hydrogen Challenges is inspired by Jules Verne's hydrogen prediction. One of the greatest science fiction writers of his time.











PIONEERS: The climate is warming globally, commensurate with our persistent comfort with fossil fuels. Hydrogen holds the potential to release us from the cycle of instability we are tread-milling, as Jules Verne predicted in 1874. [LEFT] In the US, a network of service stations were installed, promising gassing up of cars in under a minute. At time of writing, there is no hydrogen energy infrastructure.


[RIGHT]In 1894 Charles Parsons built and demonstrated his 'Turbinia' in the English Channel, the fastest ship in the world at the time; steam turbine powered, but his technology was spurned. The only way he could get attention from Navies and Cruise operators of the time, was to speed through Queen Victoria's naval review. Of course, none of the boats at the time could catch him, much to the amusement of spectators and the press. Soon after, the orders poured in for his turbine engines.





Flaming torch, Statue of Liberty, freedom from fossil fuels. JVH2, the electric Blue Ribband, Eiffel Tower.
