With the gas-fueled land speed record hovering safely around the speed of sound, it’s time for gearheads to see what they can do with hydrogen. So just a few months after Jesse James (not that Jesse James) set the fuel cell-powered land speed record at 199mph, a group of Ohio State engineering students have set it even higher: 301mph, to be precise. Keep it in mind the next time you need to hitch a ride across the Mojave.
