NOW, TELL ME, am I right or wrong in remembering from Science 101 that Oxygen and Hydrogen are two of the most abundant elements in the air we breathe?? It seems to me that some group of Einsteins out there would have long ago invented a simple machine to combine elemental Oxygen and Hydrogen to form liquid Water, H2O. The industrial process would essentially be the entropic opposite of Electrolysis, which is the dissociation of H2O Water molecules into their elemental gases, Hydrogen and Oxygen.
No doubt the chemical process would require some input of electricity or some other form of energy to power up the device that produces liquid Water from gaseous elemental Oxygen and Hydrogen. So...
Q; WHY HAS THIS DEVICE NOT BEEN INVENTED YET?!?!? The development of such a device seems very much like a No-Brainer to me.
A: I guess the Money Trail for this ubiquitously useful product is not wide enough and deep enough for maintain the interest of the Greedy Captains Of Industry.
