Re: Splitting electrons?

It would probably do that and more. Yet, look at all the technological
bottlenecks we have faced with a more straight-forward technology like
nuclear fusion by means of tokamac or stellerator. Unless the superbrains
that may exist at the middle of the next century can accelerate technical
advances, these electrino's will remain a mere laboratory curiosity.
