Behold: the Hyperion XP-1 Hydrogen Prototype Coupe from a South California company that employs ex-NASA engineers and applies technology used in space exploration, including fuel cells storing energy released from the chemical breakdown of hydrogen. The cells are much lighter than batteries and can be recharged (for a 1,600km range) in about five minutes.

Two electric motors at the rear of the monocoque chassis drive all four wheels, accelerating the XP-1 to 100km/h and on to a top speed of 355km/h.

An entertaining,  illuminating, video essay by Kirby Ferguson (of long-running webseries ‘Everything Is A Remix’ and ‘This Is Not A Conspiracy Theory’) chronicling the rise and worldwide spread of ‘magical thinking’, QAnon and other far right conspiracy movements.

Ireland even gets a special mention.

Yay!
