And to think that ATS is full of people who believe water can be used as a fuel...


It will get you around the Solar System, but if you want warp drive you need tequila.

...Practically every element in the Solar System (including the Sun), apart from some helium, is older than the Sun. The Sun currently fuses hydrogen into helium, so there's some "new" helium in our system. The rest (including oxygen and hydrogen that make up water) originated in the interstellar medium enriched by previous supernova explosions.


Quite so. The atoms of carbon and iron in your body, and the nitrogen and oxygen that you breath, were ALL once inside of a star or supernova.

When Carl Sagan famously said "We are made of star-stuff", he was being quite literal.
