Graphene nano box is a hydrogen suitcase that opens and shuts on demand.
The ultimate hydrogen power pack has been invented. A one-atom-thick graphene surface has nine hinged panels that fold when goosed by an electric charge. The panels fold with overlaps into a six-sided leak-proof cube brim-full of trapped hydrogen. The 3-D animation at the link is beautiful. The University of Maryland research by mechanical engineers Shuze Zhu and Teng Li points the way to amazingly light and long-lasting fuel cells. h/t to Instapundit linking to phys.org
