Fuel cell technology has come a long way since its inception, with various applications and advancements that continue to shape our world. One notable example is the hydrogen-powered bus, like the CJ11 3949 Pierre Fillon and Stephane Richelmi's H24Racing LMPH2G, or the CJ11 4428 Norman Nato's H24 Green GT. These buses showcase how they can revolutionize transportation by providing clean and efficient energy. But they are not limited to just vehicles; they have been around for decades. In fact, a fascinating piece of history is the Fuel Cell Gemini Cutaway from around 1965, created by General Electric Company. This cutaway gives us a glimpse into the inner workings of this innovative technology. The development of they can be attributed to brilliant minds such as Christian Friedrich Schoenbein, a German-Swiss chemist who made significant contributions in the early 19th century. His work laid the foundation for future advancements in this field. Another influential figure in fuel cell history is Hon Sir William Robert Grove, DCL, FRS – not only a judge but also an accomplished scientist. His contributions in the late 19th century paved the way for further exploration and understanding of this groundbreaking technology. Fuel cells have even found their place in motorsports. The Lotus 49B from 1968 featured double aerofolies that enhanced its performance on track. Similarly, Toleman TG184 from 1984 showcased detailed engineering focused on maximizing efficiency and power output. Beyond Earthly applications, fuel cells have played crucial roles in space exploration too. Technicians at Cape Canaveral were seen removing and handling these specialized power sources from space shuttles with utmost care and precision during maintenance operations at Kennedy Space Center's Orbiter Processing Facility-2. In one remarkable instance, a Helios endurance flight was planned for mid-July, aiming to take fuel cell technology to new heights in the stratosphere.
