    ok, so I wonder who the first person is gonna be to win the race to make a bomb out of them...
    Hydrazine is pretty snazzy stuff

    Hmm, if anything I'm kinda glad they end up consuming the hydrazine again. Otherwise there'd be pretty obvious safety concerns.

    • I'd just like to point out that these bacteria use rocket fuel in the same way human use fat. That is all.

      • korgmeister says:

        Well yes, I was aware of that. The blurb made me think at first that these bacteria excreted hydrazine. Then I read, as you said, they just sorta use it as a high density energy storage.

        Which is a relief, because if they excreted hydrazine...well I guess we would have learned of their existence much longer ago, on account of the explosions and all.

    Heh, maybe we can use them to fuel Niven's tnuctip stage trees.

    So will there be an intestinal variety with which jet packs will be obsolete, assuming a good safe nozzle design can be found?

    I'm sure there will be videos ciculating the net soon of frat boys who drink some of that bacteria to light their super farts on fire.

    • bifrosty2k says:

      I'm fairly certain hydrazine has a fairly high vaporization temperature, certainly higher than the inside of a fratboy's ass.

      Explosive toilets would probably be the favorite game, but its not like its already not the hit of the party!
