    How do you know "replication" is what took place. Precisely what do you mean by "replication?"


    Are you saying SRI, as a company, officially built, tested and agreed as to the performance of a Brillouin reactor? I think what happened is simply that Brillouin moved some of their experiments into SRI facilities to continue them. I very much doubt that the experiments done there were indipendent of Brillouin, if that was what you meant. Shane D. , you are one hell of an optimist.


    As to Rossi, his story is hilarious but if that is one of the most interesting happenings of 2018 in LENR, LENR is in big, big trouble.

    Classic example of you not looking at the papers you mention.


    I'd be interested to know what kirkshanahan thinks of the paper I linked to...


    http://brillouinenergy.com/new…/SRI_Technical_Report.pdf


    "In August 2012, SRI International (SRI - https://www.sri.com) was contracted by Brillouin
    Energy Corp. of Berkeley California (“Brillouin”, “Brillouin Energy” or “the company” –
    http://brillouinenergy.com) to perform independent studies of Brillouin’s low energy nuclear
    reaction (LENR) reactors, as well as advise on related Brillouin LENR research. We have
    operated these reactors to observe, monitor, analyze, advise on, and independently verify
    Brillouin’s LENR evolving research & development work, test systems, and test results. This
    Report documents the most recent independent results obtained with Brillouin’s prototype
    reactors located in SRI’s laboratory, as well as verification and validation of results obtained
    with Brillouin’s prototype reactors located in Brillouin’s laboratory, over the course of the past

    year."


    And that's the first paragraph! Shame Kirk didn't fill you in on all the details...

  • In that PDF, the link to SRI's report of 2018 doesn't work. About what I've seen of quality assurance of Brillouin publications before. These people inspire no confidence at all. Never have. Anyway, someone please point to the SRI report link again pls... tnx.
