The interesting thing about the Hindenburg desaster is not how
many people died, but how many survived. Consider that propane fire
in Mexico. Consider the conflagration a normal gasoline transporter
The good point of hydrogen fireballs is a) being lighter than air,
they rise up very quickly b) lacking soot particles, they don't roast
victims with blackbody radiation.
If you're caught up in the middle of it, you're fux0red, of course.
