Fuel Cells: Where to find Molecular Hydrogen

I just watched an interesting documentary on our addiction to oil, and it seems that everyone sees a lot of promise in fuel cells. But the problem is that H2, or molecular hydrogen, is rather hard to come by, since it does not occur naturally.

But then I just thought: could molecular Hydrogen occur naturally in our solar system? Say, perhaps in the rings of saturn, or in the atmopshere of Jupiter? What if a space-craft returns from jupiter or saturn with a ton of hydrogen (in a safe compartment?) That would be an excellent long term solution.

Given furthur developments in spaceflight and other related technology, does anyone else think that this could be done?
