    I am not trashing anything...the discussing is still is about water being used as fuel...I am just make a point of the consequences of such an act.

    Here is discussion if you see to it:

    water used as fuel...energy from nuclear

    Read-Only...well now that I started to talk on the subject of using water and hydrogen from it for fuel...were are you now? seems like only science-fiction makes a discussion worth wile

    That's NOT nuclear! It's an ordinary fuel cell and all the original water appears again - none is lost.

    I am just showing that as an example of how fuel cell works...gawd

    and suggesting to use energy incoming from nuclear power station generated electrical energy.

    You're not making any more sense here than you did with your invalid examples that I just shot down.

    this is the beginning only...I am showing you the current state of things. In future the spaceships will carry Earth resources beyond the planet.

    I believe we all know the current state of things so you are wasting our time with all that stuff.

    And sure - we'll carry LIMITED amounts of resources with us. There's plenty of water and minerals located throughout our solar system and beyond.

    I wouldnt be so sure of that. Plenty of resources...but first we have to get to them...and travel on regular basis.

    You know the current state of things? I was referring to the hydrogen powered UAV...you knew about it before me?

    It will always take 286 kj of energy per mol of water turned into hydrogen, because that's the standard enthalpy of formation of water. There's no way around it. In reality it will take a little more, because your process won't be 100% efficient. If you want to make H2 from liquid H2O, you have to give it 286 kj.

    yup always that thermal energy that escapes for nothing...

    Could be - I read about it over two months ago. Maybe three.

    space ice mining. that is the answer to endless water.

    space ice mining? nothing lasts forever...

    and were is this space ice? heh?

    I'm not an expert, but I think that until we minimize everything, or find a way of using less energy to get the most effort, we must continue researching.

    yeah sure...but meanwhile we are still on Earth and lack of resources is felt upon millions.

    space ice mining is the mining of ice from other planets. we know there is ice on other planets. there is even ice in the asteroid belt. it will be the way of the future.

    Water is power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    This has been bothering me for months. it's simple. use an anode and a cathode to separate hydrogen and oxygen. the will travel through their respected tubes and meet each other recombine and the released energy will be power for the mechanics.

    exactly. plus, space ice mining is an excellent means to increase the GNP.
