Joanna thinks that she knows how they did it, but won't tell anyone... Maybe Rag will know? 3500 psi is a hell of a lot of pressure to get so quickly. Although the distilled water idea is a good one. Considering that the MIT gun had no real valve makes your idea sound even more logical.

Wich would create even more pressure, though.

Along with a stoichiometric mix of pure O2 and H2 which has a lower ignition energy than oxy-acetylene and is very prone to detonations.

but most of all electrolysis is really REALLY slow for the amount of energy put in

Sorry for the bump, but the ignition of the two would just create even more pressure. :lol:
