I did not know this. Without an electrolyzer, distilled water being an insulator will just boil. This setup should have worked or at least produce oxyhydrogen, it just lacked an alkali additive. It looks like the electrolyzer is the key to this oxyhydrogen generation method.
Brad Pitt, Steve Jobs' widow, and Britain's fallen star investor reportedly backed a startup betting on 'cold fusion' — an idea scientists scoff at
It's tougher to understand why Neil Woodford, who managed billions on behalf of mostly unsophisticated investors, would put so much financial support behind such an obscure start-up pursuing a wildly far-fetched, even discredited, idea.
Woodford acknowledged "skepticism that has surrounded the theory and history of this branch of science" in one of his funds' latest annual report. However, "The potential disruptive implications of a new, substantially more efficient source of energy deem the various fields of neglected energy science worthy of further investigation," he added.
His "further investigation" was hefty: Woodford Patient Capital Trust marked up the estimated value of its stake by more than 350% to $113 million last year, valuing Industrial Heat at $918 million, the Financial Times said
It may now have gotten to a point where Rossi's team as well as his partner is gently pushing Rossi to the side and assuming the bulk of the R&D effort. This move to the west coast to conduct the test may be an indication of this situation,
Rossi's controller must have gotten more complicated. It not only has to pump the LENR plasma reaction but it also has to capture the back current produced by the plasma.
There is likely a connection between the pumping signal and the flow of back current. This feedback relationship may need an top of the line oscilloscope to visualize together with an expert in the use of that device
My guess is that it has something to do with Hurley, who assisted at the QX demo in Stockholm. I think he is from California, and has something to do with oil refineries.
Rossi's cooperate partner most likely has a division in California that specializes in electrical applications.
Interesting Product of Energetic Hydrino Reaction
Notice the thread like nature of the silver ash. This structure is much like nano tubes.
Magnetism of Hydrino Hydrogen
Silver has changed it nature to super paramagnetic, a hybrid of ferromagnetism and para magnetism. This is probably due to the formation of silver Rydberg clustering in a ultra dense form.
The same enclosed experiment could be performed with tungsten as in z-pinch to see if the same cluster formation occurs with the attendant development of super paramagnetism.
There are similar LENR based experiments using the application of high powered arcs such as
Low-energy nuclear reactions and the leptonic monopole
Georges Lochak*, Leonid Urutskoev**
Here, remote at a distance transmutation of uranium (U238) is produced.
So maybe one day if there is conclusive proof he has something revolutionary, I will entertain comparing him to some of the great figures. As of now, IMO he is just an determined conman.
If Rossi can succeed in warping the output production of electrons extracted from the SK plasma back around into the input power feed, to produce infinite COP, that would be interesting.
Ammonia on Pluto Hints at a Massive Hidden Ocean That Could Support LifeQuote
What makes it even more surprising is that ammonia doesn't last long (in cosmic terms) out in the open in the Solar System. Ultraviolet light and cosmic radiation degrade it relatively quickly - we're talking along the lines of millions of years.
Pluto is billions of years old, so something had to have put it there - and recently, too.
There's a clue in the way the ammonia is distributed: it seems to have been spewed out by several cryovolcanic vents: volcanoes that erupt subzero liquid volatiles such as water, methane and ammonia instead of molten rock.
The current Establishment backed theory that the underground oceans inside Pluto were initially formed when Pluto condensed from the primordial nebula and has been preserved for 4.5 billion years through the insulating action of a methane ice upper layer is undercut by the observation of ongoing transport of Ammonia all over the surface of Pluto produced by many cryovolcanoes.
The only option that remains, Pluto must have a currently ongoing and persistent internal heat source. LENR
The graphs I posted are experimental data which conflict with the idea that high-loading is necessary to MAINTAIN the reaction.
Other experiments will give excess heat ASAP, upon demand, like Brillouin can do.
Could high-loading occur so quickly? with their complex material? I do not think that is established at all. It seems unlikely.
Also, given the fact that Ni-H produces excess heat, and other metals produce excess heat, and these other metals do NOT accept such high-loading as Palladium, it doesn't make sense to me that the high-loading is the crucial factor for a reaction.
But then I reason from the view that there is only one mechanism responsible for all these effects.
I like the posit of Dr George Miley who has produced a productive LENR reaction.
See page 9 of https://www.lenr-canr.org/acrobat/MileyGHlenrreacti.pdf
I am convinced that Dr Kim is correct in his posit that a Bose condensate of hydrogen ions is the major causative factor in the LENR reaction. Lattice compression does not produce fusion, instead it produces a coherent superconductive quantum mechanical structure when deuterium is highly compressed that produces energy and transmutation that are not released until the Bose condinsate is terminated. MFMP has seen this reaction energy and transmutation product release behavior in experiments in the melt down ash of the LION reactor(all on YouTube).
Dr Kim as coined the term Bose nova to describe the process wherein the Bose condensate releases its store of energy.
By the way, Ruby, you shoud look into setting up an interview with Dr. Kim, Dr Miley, and Bod Greenyer for your future pod casts.
I have forwarded your theoretical post to Shenkel et al
they have no explanation for the 1000 Ev 'screening'.
Plaudits .. for your Boltzmann calculation ... I'm lazy .. I use an online calculator..
1000 eV =11605000K
Maybe screening does not occur.
Edmund Storms has shown that high-loading is not necessary to maintain the reaction.
Others have also shown that excess heat is generated upon de-loading.
The idea that high-loading is *needed* to *start* the reaction is still ambiguous.
It may be that the high-loading is actually causing the deformations that allow LENR to occur, and that the crammed in nuclei are creating the environment for heat to happen.
Here is Storms graph, and a graph of George Miley's from
Learn from the Best!
It is not logical to assume that fusion is caused by lattice compression of deuterium when the release of that pressure produces excess heat. The basic posit of fusion caused by lattice compression might well be wrong.
What theory can explain how the release of lattice generated deuterium pressure can cause the LENR reaction be become active?
Any LENR researcher that has had any positive results is not going to share those sucessful methods and procedures with anybody.
Loading hydrogen into the palladium lattice produces metallic hydrogen not the fusion of hydrogen.
thought it was interesting.
Dr George Miley and Hora have a theory that the magic numbers of protons and neutrons in the nucleus are a result of the way three Quarks combine. They also state that the LENR reaction transmutes elements according to their existing natural isotopic distributions.
UFOs are getting dangerous and there is concern that a hostile foreign power may have advanced technology.
Since the US Navy has upgraded their war fighting sensor technology including stealth penetrating radars and infrared sensors, the detection of UFOs has gotten to a crisis level. This period of increased UFO sighting frequency began with the so called Tic Tac incident on the west coast of America
(see Wikipedia: USS Nimitz UFO incident - and the official report:Quote
here are the 'Key Assessments'
- The Anomalous Aerial Vehicle (AAV) was no known aircraft of air vehicle currently in the inventory of the United States or any foreign nation.
- The AAV exhibited advanced low observable characteristics at multiple radar bands, rendering US radar-based engagement capabilities ineffective.
- The AAV exhibited advanced aerodynamics performance with no visible control surfaces and no visible means to generate lift.
- The AAV exhibited advanced propulsion capability by demonstrating the ability to remain stationary with little to no variation in altitude transitioning to horizontal and/or vertical velocities far greater than any known aerial vehicle with no little to no visible signature.
- The AAV possibly demonstrated the ability to 'cloak' or become invisible to the human eye or human observation.
- The AAV possibly demonstrated a highly advanced capability to operate undersea completely undetectable by our most advanced sensors.
Now it's happening on the East Coast, the occurrence and subsequent reporting by US Navy pilots of UFOs has gotten to the point that possible collisions with these unidentified objects are becoming a serious safety issue for the fleet.
Numerous gun site videos have been publicly released by the Navy that show these unidentified objects on the threat tracking screens of Navy aircraft.
The New York Times writes:
The pilots began noticing the objects after their 1980s-era radar was upgraded to a more advanced system. As one fighter jet after another got the new radar, pilots began picking up the objects, but ignoring what they thought were false radar tracks.
“People have seen strange stuff in military aircraft for decades,” Lieutenant Graves said. “We’re doing this very complex mission, to go from 30,000 feet, diving down. It would be a pretty big deal to have something up there.”
But he said the objects persisted, showing up at 30,000 feet, 20,000 feet, even sea level. They could accelerate, slow down and then hit hypersonic speeds.
Lieutenant Accoin said he interacted twice with the objects. The first time, after picking up the object on his radar, he set his plane to merge with it, flying 1,000 feet below it. He said he should have been able to see it with his helmet camera, but could not, even though his radar told him it was there.
A few days later, Lieutenant Accoin said a training missile on his jet locked on the object and his infrared camera picked it up as well. “I knew I had it, I knew it was not a false hit,” he said. But still, “I could not pick it up visually.”
At this point the pilots said they speculated that the objects were part of some classified and extremely advanced drone program.
But then pilots began seeing the objects. In late 2014, Lieutenant Graves said he was back at base in Virginia Beach when he encountered a squadron mate just back from a mission “with a look of shock on his face.”
He said he was stunned to hear the pilot’s words. “I almost hit one of those things,” the pilot told Lieutenant Graves.
The pilot and his wingman were flying in tandem about 100 feet apart over the Atlantic east of Virginia Beach when something flew between them, right past the cockpit. It looked to the pilot, Lieutenant Graves said, like a sphere encasing a cube."
The question then that begs to be addressed: Do UFOs exist?
This is a case where there is good observational evidence but no possible applicable science to explain multiple reliable observations. Let's roll in some physics. How does science handle this situation?
I have my posit and its not extraterrestrials.
Two tidally locked bodies don't produce tidal friction. That is why Charon is frozen solid. Charon also shows a heavily pitted surface laid down over billions of years. The theory that Pluto's ocean is insulated by a gas hydrate can't happen when that roiling ocean is heavily peppered by large impactors like Charon for billions of years. The only option that remains, Pluto must have an internal heat source. LENR
