New research shows that it was not the gas that killed the zepplin, but rather the PAINT. They painted the airship with a mixture of Iron oxide, and Aluminum powder, which is the mixture used for SOLID ROCKET FUEL. Hydrogen burns blue-white, the paint mixture burns orange-yellow-white, the color reported at the accident. They also found a surviving piece of the airship, and tested the paint, yep rocket fuel. It has also been found in the Zepplin record, they figgured it out afterwords, just kept quiet.
