If you don't know what a magnetohydrodynamic pump is, look at this video:

Could you pump liquid oxygen with this? I'm pretty sure you cannot pass a current through liquid oxygen. However, I know LOX is paramagnetic, so maybe there's something there. Not quite sure how the dynamics would work out.

Is something like this in any way possible?
