So does that mean if we can put pop-corn in the engine and it will get popped like that movie with the laser beam going into the house?
Supposedly its not too far off. I know there is some kind of additvie you can put in vegetable oil and then can use it to fuel a diesel engine. I just wonder how adaptive the airlines would be to it. If you remember, they did some kind of testing with a fuel additive that would turn to gel in a crash. The idea was that if the fuel went to gel it wouldnt burn. However, the airlines wern't so inclined to pay the extra costs of adding the mixture to their fuel.
If they make it cost effective enough and can prove it has the same burning capabilites as Jet-A, as in same properties at altitude and that sort of thing, then I don't see why not.
