Radio waves make salt water into fuel?
It is not the first time an invention has come from an effort aimed in a different direction. Now who gets the royalties for the Gulf of Mexico? If this works on a commercial scale look for environmentalist to oppose it. Water vapor is already the largest source of greenhouse gases, far exceeding CO2.Retired TV station owner and broadcast engineer, John Kanzius, wasn't looking for an answer to the energy crisis.He was looking for a cure for cancer.
Four years ago, inspiration struck in the middle of the night. Kanzius decided to try using radio waves to kill the cancer cells.
His wife Marianne heard the noise and found her husband inventing a radio frequency generator with her pie pans.
Radio-waves will heat certain metals. Tiny bits of certain metal are injected into a cancer patient.
Those nano-particals are attracted to the abnormalities of the cancer cells and ignore the healthy cells.
The patient is then exposed to radio waves and only the bad cells heat up and die.
But John also came across yet another extrordinary breakthrough.
His machine could actually make saltwater burn.
John Kanzius discovered that his radio frequency generator could release the oxygen and hydrogen from saltwater and create an incredibly intense flame.
"Just like that. If that was in a car cylinder you could see the amount of fire that would be in the cylinder."
