It seems that the military is believing that fuel cell technology is a good thing. A self-regenerating fuel loop looks like a good idea, one that would get the oil company execs along with the combustion engine folks to reach for some Tums....


The U.S. military is developing fuel technology to extend the life of its global surveillance satellites. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) -- the U.S. Department of Defense's central research and development agency -- is working with Wallingford, Conn.-based Proton Energy Systems on a program to develop a self-regenerating fuel loop that would use water and solar power to create electricity onboard in-orbit spacecraft. However, questions have been raised in Congress about whether DARPA is focused sufficiently on R&D projects that would be most beneficial to a nation currently at war.

I was so excited to find this I didn't check to see if it is already posted, so mods feel free to delete if this is a duplicate.......
