Salt Water Can "Burn," Scientist Confirms
Salt water can indeed burn when exposed to a certain kind of radio wave, a university chemist has confirmed.
Rustum Roy of Pennsylvania State University verified earlier this month that the radio waves break the water into its components, allowing the resulting freed hydrogen and oxygen to catch fire.
Independent scientists said the phenomenon is credible as explained, though practical applications of the technology remain uncertain and it's unlikely to be a source of cheap energy.
