Sciency Daily has a story about a new imaging device at NIST that will allow researchers to watch the internal workings of hydrogen fuel cells.

""Better water management is fundamental to meeting targets for fuel cell performance, reliability and durability. Reaching these targets, in turn, is integral to efforts to replace petroleum with hydrogen to power cars and trucks by 2020--the goal of President Bush's Hydrogen Fuel Initiative."

"An expert panel described the imaging method as "one of the most significant analytical advances in the membrane fuel cell realm in decades." "

Still, nothing that should make one hopeful of having a viable hydrogen solution in the coming decade capable of widespread use.
