    According to my TiVo guide this Wednesday at 10PM the show "Modern Marvels" on the History Channel will have a program about hydrogen as a fuel.

    Those interested may want to check it out to see if it indeed covers this topic.

    "Gas Tech:" usual HC mish-mash of fact & fiction.

    Ooops! Sorry, didn't realise from the guide description that it was a show about gas as a phase of matter (H, He, Ne, Ar) and that H2 had just a couple minutes of rehashed footage.

    I wonder if the people watching the promotional films in the 50s/60s predicting the future of flying cars, automated kitchens, and personal servant robots tired of the overly optimistic junk the same way as we do today.

    "Sorry?" Kinda doubt HC consulted you on content of program summaries or on production quality.

    "Controlled fusion, cancer cures, chicken in every pot?" Tiring? Nah. Entertaining --- sad, but amusing.
