It was because of the release. When the hydrogen mixes with the oxygen in the air, it can combust and go boom.

Good question. At TMI they kept saying the releases were controlled, but they weren't. So yeah....this might be leaks and not releases. Scary.

I don't want to get sidetracked again, but can we try to only post these update headlines once, from one source, and not repost the info every time a new carrier reports it? Respectfully. I just hate that the pages are moving so fast and so many new posts are getting ignored and missed because of all the short reposts. Maybe we can just post a recap of a bunch of headlines from the last hour like once an hour, with the sources for each topic?

No, you hadn't posted it already, it was posted by a few other people and discussed a page or two back. This headline isn't really the best example, I just replied to this post. And I'm totally not targeting you----I send the request to everyone! I just keep seeing things repeated over and over again because BBC and Reuters and whatnot tend to repost headlines as if they're new, so we see them like 3 or 4 times.
