    Last week I sourced and installed a new Inficon Capacitance Gauge. Other than sorting out a grounding issue, it works with the same DAQ interface as the Baratron it replaced. Leakage is much improved at about 0.5 Pa/hr or 12 Pa/day, into just 30 cc. This…

    For the past month, I've been struggling to reduce the slow leakage of outside air into the reactor. This was first seen in calibration and testing of MR2. After replacing most of the parts in the system, I've concluded that the leak must be from the KF…

    I have to point out that the claimed "independent replication" of the Waters Turbine appears to be replication of the modelling calculations, with no device or actual data shown. It seems conceptually interesting but one wonders why there is no video or…

    The path to success:
    Test, fail, test, fail, test again.
    Each gets you closer.

    Bob#2 A trip to Japan is neither possible nor appropriate for me given the current circumstances. I urge you to curb your impatience regarding replication. This stuff takes time!

    As I've said before, the Mizuno experiment is deceptively difficult, due…

    sam12 My opinion? As a piece of Borat-like theater I would give it 3-1/2 Tomatoes. Beyond that, there's nothing to sustain my interest. A much more serious attempt to follow the Focardi/Piantelli path is Parkhomov's recent work, somewhat…

    @PfD Cruel but very clever. This has become the "Rossi Roast" thread it seems.

    Excerpts from Rossi's upcoming autobiography, leaked on JONP...

    When Rossi was born the doctor came out to the waiting room and said to his father, “I’m very sorry. We did everything we could…but he pulled through.”
    Rossi was born poor. He is quoted as…

    I've posted this before, a presentation at ICCF21 (2018) and still relevant:
    Lawrence Forsley - Space Application of a Hybrid Fusion-Fission Reactor
    Forsley is one of the co-authors of the NASA paper recently released.

    I've been using 3M paper in 400, 800, 1000 grit, under running water in a sink. Seems to work OK.

    My criticism referred to the overall progress (or lack thereof) in the conversation. I said "There's a general tendency to confuse temperature with power". Power refers to both the electric input to the heater, and the heat and other forms of power…

    I tried a sort of catalyst-ceramic wire-wound resistor hybrid.

    I mixed K2CO3 and Fe2O3 in roughly equal amounts with some water to obtain a thick paste (although perhaps "mud" better describes what it felt like) and applied it inside and outside a newly…

    OK, I missed that detail in your original proposal, and my comment applied mainly to those responding to it. Each of the cylinders should be considered as a "black box" containing a source of heat, and I agree with your conclusion that given identical…

    So then you are proposing insulation of zero thickness and emissivity identical to bare metal?

    I find this discussion intellectually lazy to a disturbing degree. There's a general tendency to confuse temperature with power that leads to incorrect application of thermodynamics. For example in the most recent "gedanken experiment" the insulated…

    MR3 Cal2 has started. A new diaphragm-sealed valve is installed on the gas manifold port.
