The race for zero-carbon aviation

Aviation's climate problem is an energy issue: replacing cheap, lightweight, high-density jet fuel with zero-carbon energy storage that gives usable range without too much of a price, weight or space premium. Battery-electric aircraft may work well in short-range flights, but the most promising technology for longer-range aircraft could be hydrogen.
