Were the experiments unsuccessful?
Were they unsuccessful in the 8 attempts to collaborate together?
Like Alan I was told TG wanted to keep at arms-length distance from the old guard for 2 reasons:
-To attack the problem with fresh, new ideas. The OG had failed to produce a "reference experiment" in 30 years, so time to try a new approach. That made sense to me. But they did, at the least, consult with them. Was the relationship deeper than that? I do not know.
-In case they were successful, they thought having help from the OG would give the skeptics reason to ignore the findings. I always wondered that had they been successful, and Storms or McKubre associated with the results in any way, if Nature would have published?
Did Team Google discuss or present these three patents or their DoE grant at the ARPA-E workshop?
Google coordinated and funded the projects" made me think they were the sole provider of funds, and that the DOE was not involved...but I could be wrong
Or the DoD grant awarded Team Google vis a vis Munday Labs, now at UC California Davis?
Also mentioned in Trevithick's ARPA-E presentation was that Google funded Project Charleston (what we call Team Google/TG). The way it is worded made it sound clear that only Google provided the funding.
So this new patent could represent something totally different. As said, it does not even look like LENR.
