using nitrogen tri-ioide as a fuel

nitrogen tri-iodide is a chemical that acts as nitroglycerin when it's dry, but when it's wet it' completely stable, this gives us the ability to manipulate it's condition to our favor.
A research has proposed the mechanism that would harness this source of energy and it showed that it gives out three times as much as energy as gasoline, it's half the price, it's environmentally friendly as there are no carbon emissions & it's renewable, some people might wonder how it could be used as the chemical is a solid and it's not possible to dry an object all of a sudden, also the exhaust of the reaction contains iodine gas which is poisonous. All the previous obstacles where overcome, as a solid fuel injection system was made, a specific ignition mechanism was also developed as a recycling system for the iodine gas so it can be re-used in synthesis of nitrogen tri-iodide....

With all these benefits why isn't anyone looking into the subject???!!!!

    I might not familiar with nitrogen tri-iodide, but if !!! this become a reality
    I'm sure that, this will be a big leap for human being.
