Hydrogen (or H) is the first element of the periodic table. It is the only member of group one to be a colorless gas. Out of all gases, it has the lowest density.

Although earlier scientists unknowingly discovered (and made observations of) hydrogen, we consider it to be discovered by Henry Cavendish in 1766 because he collected the bubbles,proved that they weren't other elements, and demonstrated that when the element burns it forms water. The name is composed from words that were originally Greek "hudōr" (water), and "gennan" (generate). This gas was given its name by Antoine Lavoisier, and can also be called water-former. Another (more rare) form of Hydrogen is deuterium. http://www.rsc.org/periodic-table/element/1/hydrogen
The Structure of Hydrogen
- The atomic number of Hydrogen is 1.
- The atomic mass is 1.008amu.
- Stable Isotopes: H-1 and H-2
Hyydrogen is the most abundant of all elements. To some planets (like Jupiter) this element is a very important factor because it is present at the core of their planet. It is found in the sun and most stars. To produce pure Hydrogen industries use fuel sources like petroleum, natural gas, and coal. It is obtained from mines, oil, and gas wells.
