U.S. Device Helps Israel’s Defense Ministry to Produce Liquid Hydrogen

Download PDF for this date

The production of liquid hydrogen got under way two weeks ago in research laboratories of the Israel Defense Ministry, a spokesman for the Ministry announced today. He said that the first 14 quarts of the liquefied gas had already been sent to the Hebrew University for research in a variety of physics problems.

Production of the liquid form of the lightest element was initiated with the aid of a machine obtained from the United States. Its use may have a profound effect on Israel’s economic development and possibly on its security.
