Kawasaki Heavy Industries in Japan has launched the world’s first-ever liquefied hydrogen carrier ship at Kobe Works yard. Officially named the Suiso Frontier, the goal of the ship is to transport hydrogen in large quantities via the sea. It’s the first vessel of its kind.
The Red Hydrogen One was a phone from another dimension. It was big, super heavy, and was billed the world’s first holographic phone. Except it never quite delivered, and now, alongside a retirement announcement, Red Founder Jim Jannard is cancelling Red’s Hydrogen project altogether.

Scientists have spent decades since attempting to synthesise this material, and may have finally done so.
