    A very instructive video about how Wright Brother's invented planes.

    I thinks it can inspire LENR researshers today...

    Roots of Progress https://rootsofprogress.org/ is a very interesting blog on inventions, and innovation.


    But really the video should orientate the LENR inventors. Among which:

    • beware of being over funded
    • keep focussed
    • no public demon until you really master the process
    • solve the fundamental problem until moving to a bigger
    • look where other failed
    • reconsider accepted data, do your own research
    • be methodical
    • underpromiss and overdeliver

    All my cheers to the people in countries cited in those analyses...

    I hope LENR will change the fate, it is a fate, of Europe and Asia.


    I am looking for translation or reporoduction of those analysis in English...


    Best regards, all by good vibes.

    In LENR community we are from many places, and today, it will be hard for some of us, if not all more or less...

    I may disagree with some governments (euphemism), but sure I want to cheer all people here, especially those whose name are in Cyrillic, but also roman, Greek letters, arabic letters, ideograms, with or without accents.

    I'm in some state of furor, but as there are some places where one should not talk of LENR or cold fusion, here it is not the subject to talk of war.


    Just accept I appreciate you all, we have a problem which is not to be discussed here, and if someone here helps the discovery of LENR development in real world, he would have done more than any discussion on war.


    So, if you can do something to help, search, be professional, be rational, be open, be creative, be scientific, be precise, be methodical, be a researcher.


    Whatever you think morally of Haber and Bosh, they saved more people from starvation than any army have saved from evil forces.


    Be Haber,

    be Borlaugh,

    be professional.

    New analysis bolsters idea that country’s seemingly low death rate was misleading

    India’s national COVID death totals remain undetermined. Using an independent nationally representative survey of 0.14 million (M) adults, we compared COVID mortality during the 2020 and 2021 viral waves to expected all-cause mortality. COVID constituted 29% (95%CI 28-31%) of deaths from June 2020-July 2021, corresponding to 3.2M (3.1-3.4) deaths, of which 2.7M (2.6-2.9) occurred in April-July 2021 (when COVID doubled all-cause mortality). A sub-survey of 57,000 adults showed similar temporal increases in mortality with COVID and non-COVID deaths peaking similarly. Two government data sources found that, when compared to pre-pandemic periods, all-cause mortality was 27% (23-32%) higher in 0.2M health facilities and 26% (21-31%) higher in civil registration deaths in ten states; both increases occurred mostly in 2021. The analyses find that India’s cumulative COVID deaths by September 2021 were 6-7 times higher than reported officially.

    quite detailed



    That is a good analogy. Maybe not the way you meant it. There were many different approaches to building airplanes circa 1900, such as A. G. Bell, and Maxim and Lilienthal. Those were smart people. Their ideas deserved respect, although the efforts did not make much progress. However, in 1906 the Wright patent was issued. All successful airplanes after that have been based on their discovery, which was 3-axis control. Also, all of them have wings with chambers similar to this, and similar length to width ratios. These are very different from Lilienthal and other early attempts. The Wrights were superb engineers and they had rigorous proof these were the best chambers and ratios, at the low speed their airplane was designed for.

    The causes of their success is analyzed in detail.

    self funding, giving time and freedom from politics, aggressive iterative research, allowed by safer failure...

    Doing their own research to start from solid foundation.

    Massively underpromissing and overdelivering.

    Experiment finds evidence for a long-sought particle comprising four neutrons

    by Technical University Munich Dr. Roman Gernhäuser at the target chamber. The tetra-neutron particles were created in the center of this chamber. The reaction was detected using an extremely sensitive magnetic spectrograph. Credit: Uli Benz / Tum

    While all atomic nuclei except hydrogen are composed of protons and neutrons, physicists have been searching for a particle consisting of two, three or four neutrons for over half a century. Experiments by a team of physicists of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) at the accelerator laboratory on the Garching research campus now indicate that a particle comprising four bound neutrons may well exist.

    While nuclear physicists agree that there are no systems in the universe made of only protons, they have been searching for particles comprising two, three or four neutrons for more than 50 years.

    Should such a particle exist, parts of the theory of the strong interaction would need to be rethought. In addition, studying these particles in more detail could help us better understand the properties of neutron stars.

    By the way, I've surveyed the slides of this workshop.

    About talents, I've read article about hardcore innovators from startup hired in companies. Quickly, they behave normally.

    Environment, drives the expression of talents. What I feel from the evolution of times, is that before the 80s, since the Greeks, many young had desperate freedom, having to carve their life against the older who were protected but prisoners of social roles.

    In current time, the older have the freedom of retirement, the freedom of leisure research, while the young people have to fight to enter the research world, please their academic peers, file grant applications, find an employer.

    This is why strangely many corporate researchers are more free than academics, because you don't have to please the academic community, the politicians fearful of media opinions, but only your own crazy boss.

    This is why smaller companies, having small boards, less council of good research validation, can innovate better despite much less money... this is why some country, where there is respect for the installed staff, can innovate better than place where displeasing the board of truth mean you are fired...

    Of course, I exaggerate, it is more complex, but this is one factor that changed...

    Craziness and mental-diversity is an asset, like biodiversity is.

    Seems new article, and claims are more concrete than the press release

    Boiler by "nuclear fusion / heat" is put into practical use, heat is taken out by metal laminated chip

    The commercialization of a heating device that uses heat from transmutation is imminent. On September 28, new energy-related venture company Clean Planet (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo) and Miura Co., Ltd., a major boiler equipment company, announced that they have signed a joint development contract for an industrial boiler that uses quantum hydrogen energy.


    ...

    According to the equipment in the laboratory in Kawasaki City, once hydrogen is filled in the chip and heated, it will continue to generate heat that exceeds the input energy for about 120 days. At that time, the COP (coefficient of performance: indicates how many times the heat energy input / consumed energy can be obtained) exceeds 12. Since the COP of a general heat pump water heater is around 3, it is expected to be able to generate an order of magnitude of heat ( Fig. 3 ).
