Hydrogen is one of the most common elements in the universe.

A hydrogen in-rush was a crucial part of Event One. (DW: Castrovala) Hydrogen could also be used as a base in the process to form huon particles. (DW: The Runaway Bride)

Hydrogen is a chemical element, and is the first element in the periodic table. In simplest form, a hydrogen atom is composed of one proton and one electron, and is classed as the most basic, and most abundant, of the elements in the known universe. Hydrogen has two isotopes, known as deuterium and tritium, with one or two neutrons, respectively, included in the atom. (ST reference: Star Fleet Medical Reference Manual; TNG episode: "Night Terrors")

Element

Hydrogen has an atomic number of 1; it is the first element in the Periodic Table and is the lightest with a molar mass of 1.00794 g/mol. It has an atomic radius of 78 pm. In its natural diatomic state, it is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas. It is a very flammable gas and is the lightest element. Its low atomic number makes it a very popular component in many reactions and molecules. Its most common molecule is H2O, or water.

Hydrogen is the most common element in the entire universe because it makes up almost all stars (the rest of stars' mass is mostly Helium). When purely combusted with Oxygen, the (chemical equation 2H2 + O2 ---> 2H2O) it forms water and heat, a very useful reaction with a clean result.

Hydrogen In Halo

Hydrogen is a gas used to fuel some UNSC vehicles, such as the Warthog and Mongoose. There are also some Hydrogen barrels in Halo 2 and 3. As fossil fuels have probably been abandoned, hydrogen is most likely humanity's current top power source: A UNSC Reactor use hydrogen instead of nuclear power to power buildings and heavy vehicles.

Starwars

Up to date as of February 04, 2010

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Hydrogen was an element that formed the base material for nearly all stars within the galaxy. When a star ceased burning its supply into helium, it would then begin to burn heavier elements before ending in a supernova or diminishing into a white dwarf. According to Corran Horn, it was one of the most common things in existence, followed closely by stupidity and TIE Fighter ball cockpits.

Behind the scene

The above quote of Corran is actually a paraphrase by a famous quotation originally attributed to either the author Harlan Ellison or the physicist Albert Einstein.
