@HDE226868 If it doesn't matter who does an experiment, why don't I personally do an experiment in my kitchen sink to prove whether or not motor oil is made of oxygen and gold. I'll publish my results just for you.

Thanks so much for all the info, Floris!

Taking the complicated engineering out of the equation, is it at least materially and economically possible to make such a machine that could reuse enough of the energy of burning to bring it up to the level of efficiency (or better) than distillation (which has no energy recapture potential, and also requires energy for condensation)? In other words, is it only impractical because such a machine would be highly complex or is it pretty much unrealistic to ever make something that efficient?

Thanks so much. So, if one was to consider electrolysis followed by burning the resulting hydrogen and oxygen in a sealed environment as a means to produce fresh water from dirty/salty water (as opposed to simply distilling, etc.), they'd basically need a nuclear power plant to make any real headway :/

comment What happens when half of an orbiting object's matter is annihilated?
I think you've made a mistake in your final paragraph. 1. Isn't it true that the kinetic energy in A's orbit would be equal the kinetic energy in B's wobble (equal and opposite reaction)? I realize the motion of B's wobble would be negligible compared to A's orbital motion, but the difference in motion should be exactly commensurate with the ratio of matter between the two objects, no? 2. Removing the matter from object A would result in removal of acceleration of gravity as well as kinetic energy of the motion, right?
