    But if he start boiling water in the longer runs, then I guess those issues won't matter.

    Well one part of me thinks that Rossi is having fun with us, and try to keep the ECAT below radar, (Another favorite show one must see is Plan9) and actually have the goods. Another part of me thinks that this must be some kind of odd…

    Normally yes, but then he starts to calculate COP with the help of black body equation for a spectra that does not look like a black body. On the other hand dense hydrogen (like Mills) tend to yield most energy in wavelengths shorter…

    One fact that I want to highlight and that is troubling me is that Rossi did not see any sign of the QX to ran out of fuel for a whole year. This is exactly
    what you would see in a null device with a faulty measurement of COP. And as an experimenter I…

    The presentation was according to my expectation, and I had a couple of WTF and LOL's. Not much will change as predicted by many.

    BLP has a new video of the cubic Suncell. The thing is a beast!

    This crazy aliens - they have extraordinary high-tech spaceships in order to travel light-years to our globe... and then always this stupid crash-landings in our deserts.


    Maybe they should get some flying lessons from Shane.

    Not sure I will put this on ice for now. But I have also reflected about Mills circular movements and the speed of light reference frame.

    I can't really understand his derivation and it is weird that such a transform is derived…

    No I assumed torque free precession of the loops and tried to see if that could give something. If you download the latest version an look at the section discussing the precession you
    will find a note about torque balance, that I…

    If things start to precess I would expect torque free precession. But I can't see that that is used. In recent versions of GUTCP there is a section that shows why the 60 degrees is needed. It is balansing of torques.

    Good catch, I transformed to the above equatoin vi t = 1 / x^2 and got 1 - 3t + t^3 but used octaves roots function
    wrongly e.g. i did roots([1,-3,0,1]), should be roots([1,0,-3,1]). Thanks.But I get f(a_0) =

    I did a retake on the reason you get hbar and not hbar/2 due to precession. My issue is that this part is not motivated in enough detail in GUTCP
    so I tried to do some calculations, I don't find exactly the right answer and if anyone can improve on this…

    I learned the hard way that never take anything at face value, people can have the best intention, but do unintentionally miss things, and what they say is still wrong.

    As a computer developer I am therefore constantly mistrusting. Not of the person,…

    I suppose they would transport the reactor to the White Sands Missile Range and apply every known diagnostic instrument to determine whether a nuclear reaction is occuring, and what sort of reaction it is.

    But you miss the point.…

    you do that with nuclear today and that's fine, but you are right, to take on such projects the effect must be proven to be true.

    SOme figurative thinkings, not sure if correct.

    20gr*50 = 1kg, so burning it is 37.5kWh/50 < 1kWh I doubt that you can refill it in less than a second so we would have en effect of < 1kW That is way too small to have

    I guess that's the easy heat transport constraint then. I am also wondering how the internals would behave when power is increased I would expect a higher inner temperature all over the place inside and problems due to that.

    There's no definitive answer, as it depends on pressurisation and how fast the water is flowing, but you can push 1MW/m2 into still water before the Leidenfrost effect causes problems.
