Hydrogen is billed as "the fuel of the future" for automobiles.

A popular misconception, mostly due to films of the Hindenburg disaster, is that cars that store hydrogen as fuel will be more likely to explode in an accident than current cars using gasoline. Why is this a misconception?

Hydrogen is far less dense than air and if it escapes from a breached container, it would rapidly
dissipate, moving up and away from the source of the leak. The timeframe and location in which
a combustible mixture would exist would be limited compared with a gasoline leak.
