But whence the name "Condign"?
Merriam-Webster defines "condign" as an adjective meaning "deserved; appropriate". Hmmm...my understanding was that the projects name was chosen at random.
Peculiar choice if you ask me. Of course, anytime a government agency claims that a data-gathering project was given a name chosen at random, one should take that with a grain of salt.
What's in a name?
Denny Klein believes he has found a way to sublimate distilled water into a gas that defies standard models of electrolysis. He further claims that his discovery allows for real-time conversion of water into usable engine fuel. He further claims that the energy required to produce the new gas is not more than what is produced.
What struck me as odd is that the scientist who discovered this has a familiar name...Ruggero Maria Santilli.
Yup, we know that name. While there may be no connection whatsoever between Ruggero and Ray, I wouldn't be surprised if a movie comedy about a car that runs on water comes out in the near future. LOL
Until next time...
