Photosynthesis

Scientists have replicated one of the key steps in photosynthesis, which could lead to cheap hydrogen-based fuel.

Hydrogen has long been considered a possible carbon neutral replacement for fossil fuel but has always been expensive and difficult to produce. However, now that scientists have started to mimic the process of photosynthesis, pure hydrogen, a potentially inexhaustible energy source, may be within reach.
