The most common substance in the universe is hydrogen. Hydrogen cells are being developed to offer a completely clean and renewable energy source. However, they are still too expensive. Investment in hydrogen cell research may mean that one day it becomes an energy source we use. The world’s fuel sources are slowly running out so one day we will all be using today’s emerging technologies for energy.
