Actually, the design in question is quite ridiculous. Magnesium
is made by high-temperature electrolysis, and is not a liquid,
and not even a gas (refuelling issues). Metal oxides are solid, 
bulky, and need to be recycled. There is no infrastructure for it.

The idiot press can't tell shit from shinola, as usual.
