Fire from seawater claim lights up the web
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. So I was naturally sceptical when I heard about the claims being made by an inventor in the US that he has found a way to burn seawater.
Yep, that's burn as in set fire to.
John Kanzius says he stumbled across the method by accident while experimenting with a machine he had invented to test a new cancer treatment. The machine zaps tumours with radio waves.
In one test, he aimed the radio waves at salt water in a test tube. Instead of boiling away as he expected, the water gave off a gas that burst into flame when ignited. Scientists who have examined the experiment say the gas is probably hydrogen which forms when water dissociates into its constituent parts.
The surprise is how it forms. The thinking is that the radio waves somehow weaken the bonds that hold water molecules together. But how this happens and why only in salt water is a mystery. Kanzius himself is staying tight-lipped about the details of the process while he applies for a patent.
Supposing that this explanation is right, the big question is whether the burning generates more energy than it takes to make the radio waves. That may take some time to determine and for the moment, even Kanzius says he cannot be sure either way.
But he has built an engine that runs on the heat generated by this process and suggests that it could be possible to power a car in this way.
If he's right, Kanzius is sitting on one the most disruptive discoveries of the century. And the news is now sweeping the web as videos sharing sites have started hosting videos such as this one.
But I've seen too many claims of miracle power sources to be swept away by this one. I'll hope for the best, but until Kanzius produces the peer-reviewed evidence to back up his extraordinary claims, my scepticism will remain.
