Daily Brain Freeze – Stanley Meyer was an independent inventor and former NASA employee who designed and built a motor that ran completely on water, highlighting his technology with a water-powered dune buggy.
His revolutionary car was recorded many times on film and Television. Meyer was recognized by national and international organizations, and was elected inventor of the year in “Who’s Who of America” in 1993.
Meyer also received substantial support from Canada, England, and Sweden. His focus on water as fuel began in 1975, a year after the end of the Arab oil embargo, which had triggered high gas prices, gas-pump lines and anxiety.
It’s concept is that the atomic composition of water makes it a perfect fuel source. The water molecule is composed of two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen, and when the water molecule is separated into its component elements (H and O) and oxidized as fuel, the resulting energy is two and a half times more powerful than gasoline, and the emissions are little more then water vapor.
All previous research was problematic in how to deconstitute water economically. Traditional methods of separating the water molecule resulted in failure. To power a car, these methods would not propel a car very far; the car’s electrical system could not recharge from the process quickly enough, the result being a quickly drained battery. After thirty years of research, Meyer discovered a workable method of on-board hydrogen electrolysis, creating a motor which performed at an efficiency of 100 miles per gallon but using water.
Meyer was told the military wanted to use this technology in tanks and jeeps. He had patents, and was ready for production. He also said he had been offered a billion dollars from an Arab to shelf his idea, but he declined the offer.
Meyer died suddenly on March 27, 1998, aged 57, at a local restaurant. Meyer ran out yelling that he had been poisoned, he had died shortly after.
Stephen Meyer recalls the events of that evening — “Stanley took a sip of cranberry juice. Then he grabbed his neck, bolted out the door, dropped to his knees and vomited violently. I ran outside and asked him, “What’s wrong?’ ” Stephen recalled. “He shouted, ‘They poisoned me!’ That was his dying declaration.”
Stanley Meyer’s bizarre death at age 57 ended work that, if proved valid, could have ended reliance on fossil fuels.People who knew him say his work drew worldwide attention: mysterious visitors from overseas, government spying and lucrative buyout offers.
Meyers death (March 21, 1998) sparked a three-month investigation that consumed and fascinated Grove City police, but in the end, the coroner’s report listed the cause of death as a brain aneurysm.
“Meyer’s death was laced with all sorts of stories of conspiracy, cloak-and-dagger stories,” said Grove City Police Lt. Steve Robinette, lead detective on the case.
If Stephen Meyer was shocked at his twin brother’s collapse and death, he was equally amazed at the Belgians’ response the next day.“I told them that Stan had died and they never said a word,” he recalled, “absolutely nothing, no condolences, no questions. I never, ever had a trust of those two men ever again.”
