Hydrogen is going to need PR after the Hindenberg, but it wasn't really the cause of that accident.

The ship wasn't properly grounded, and it was coated in flammable material. It was likely paint or fuel which initially caught fire, which then spread to the hydrogen. At least that's what I heard on a PBS special about it. Wikipedia just confirmed that. Besides, most of the people on board survived.
Think of how many horrendous plane crashes there have been, but people keep flying planes.

I say, bring on the hydrogen!
