  • Anybody going? I am aiming to be there, pandemics permitting.


    At present, they will not let you in. The U.K. is on their list of no-can-come-in countries. No means no:

    QUOTE:


    Even in cases where a foreign national with the status of residence of “Permanent Resident”, “Spouse or Child of Japanese National”, “Spouse or Child of Permanent Resident” or “Long-Term Resident” (including the spouse of a

    Japanese national or Japanese child who does not have these statuses of residence; the same applies hereinafter) departed from Japan with re-entry permission (including special re-entry permission; the same applies hereinafter), such person will, in principle, come under denial of landing as not having special circumstances (see note 2), so please refrain from traveling to the following countries / regions which are subject to denial of landing.



    They do say "please."

  • Here's a link announcing a recommendation for LENR research in the fiscal year 2020 appropriations bill for the US National Science Foundation:


    https://www.aip.org/fyi/2020/f…tional-science-foundation


    As I understand it, the appropriations bill passed into public law on 12 Dec. 2019 (No: 116-93). This law makes no mention of LENR. However, according to the aip site, "the House and Senate appropriations committee reports on their respective spending bills convey additional direction unless the language is negated in the final statement". In this guidance, says the aip, there are four explicitly targeted research topics -- Quantum research, Neutron detection network, LHC detector upgrades, and Low-energy nuclear reactions.

    The House report encourages NSF to “evaluate the various theories, experiments, and scientific literature surrounding the field of LENR,” which is most associated with the pursuit of cold fusion. It also directs NSF to “provide a set of recommendations as to whether future federal investment into LENR research would be prudent, and if so, a plan for how that investment would be best utilized.

    Depending on how the NSF reacts to this guidance, it could be a game-changer and mean big bucks for people who know how to write research proposals. In any case, LENR researchers with contacts in the NSF should get to work and make the experimental literature known to the appropriate people there.

  • LENR researchers with contacts in the NSF should get to work and make the experimental literature known to the appropriate people there.

    a relatively unexplored technique in LENR may reveal basic mechanisms ..

    perhaps NSF could look into financing the instrumentation plus experimetal setup using the most promising deuterium+ metal(s) isotope(s) mix.


    Te SDD + Be window is not so expensive `$10000 + ? reactor/vacuum system etc..


    something for Russ George ?

    where is Itoh's JCF20 report?


    "

    The following two instruments were installed for the measurement of low-energy
    photons. (1) For low-energy soft-X-rays (1keV-100keV), we made it possible to detect with an
    SDD detector (XR-100SDD; AMPTEK Inc.) through a Be window installed in the chamber.

    (2) For visible light measurement, a spectroscope using amp array CMOS image sensor
    (C12666MA; Hamamatsu Photonics K.K.) was installed, and the visible light transmitted
    through the viewport was guided to the spectroscope using a fiber so that the spectrum (340-
    780nm) could be measured.
    Details of the experiments and results will be reported.

  • I agree!! The energy balance will be more accurately assessed. When people focus on only the form of measurements that were repeated by all the past researchers with inconsistent positivity, you will be confused by the repeated inconcistency with logical nuclear reaction theory. That's how phenomina end up being "proved impossible", we are bound by our chosen instruments and hypotheses flexibility. I would include the optical gap between visible and 1keV, also infrared with air tempurature readings around the reactors parameter. The whole spectrum blockable with human portable casing, gaps and all, especially soft X rays and hard UV if your recieving less gamma/neutron energy then expected.

    Mass thermalizing electromagnetic energy is highly important on top with vibration, thermal effects and shock waves is optimally the vast majority of energetic product. RobertBryant What's the energy level and reaction rate difference between hydrogen (protium) and deuterium theoretically in these systems?

    .

  • So we an have the slow release of nuclear power as Holmlid has shown by using catalysts which act in the region of e = mc < 1 inducing kaon release etc etc. Work for which he should receive the Nobel Prize. Enough said for now, this is top secret.

    Holmlid is not the slow energy release! It's the most hard bang possible as mass is directly converted into photons. E=mc2 still holds but we just should write "dm" instead of "m" what is change in mass. In the last SO(4) physics write-up I did include the Holmlid reaction that converts 9 protons into 2 4-He and the excess energy cracks one proton.

    The problem with matter annialation is the end products are photons that are so high energy they are extremely hard and as of yet impossible to utilize productively. What specifically excited me about Holmid's approach was the production of multiple higher energy/mass electrons in stead of a photon. Very energetic and still with problems but charged particles with mass would be much easier to guide around theoretically than light that punches through mirrors and thick concrete.

  • LeBob

    You said: The problem with matter annihilation is the end products are photons that are so high energy


    My question is, if you expected that photons produced by Matter/antimatter merging are high that means you able to see, to interact with them to know their behavoir.

    To stay at the same side...

    In few words, you postulate that these photons are going to your side of symmetric universe.

    Why this product chose your side rather than the other one ?


  • Why this product chose your side rather than the other one ?


    Matter anti matter is a strange view the physical reality. EIther fields are transported left or right handed - that's it. There is no real anti matter as all matter is of magentic flux origin. Once "it" decided for left/right all others had to go the same way.

  • In fact, i believe that it exists a symmetric axis between them, a good picture of that could be as an AC waveform.

    However our matter remains dominant because it includes an energy gap which is the famous black energy.

    All the kinds of known energies would be only expressions from "black" energy which are spreading.

  • Of course for most people the simplest chemical-analogous approach that mainly outpus easier to use but intense electromagnetic/thermal energy is at the top!

    That's not how it works my friend. This isn't the same procces as hawking radiation. All light interacts with most regular matter given the right circumstances. The problem is after a certain level of intencity it becomes more problem than asset when utilised like fire everyday by dna based fleshy life forms. If it stays within UV/X-rays then you can have a device that could fit in a bike engine or car battery inclosure, "shielding" and all. Without the eventually decaying ionized enclosures of other routs, you just have various high frequencies of black light thermalized by a few millimeters of coated metal, ceramic, hi-temp polymers or the outer layers of fuel, devices similar in bulkiness to existing portable engines.
