    Just to clarify my question: I was asking MY why she was referring to McKubre sponsoring Brillouin, and to other things he's done with them to validate their claims. I'm guessing that in fact he hasn't been involved all that much, and that it's mostly…

    Mike McKubre has been retired for some months now, and Francis Tanzella is the one at SRI working with Brillouin. Is there a further connection between McKubre and the Brillouin testing?

    There have been fruitless and interminable debates on the Vortex list about global warming involving some of the participants of this subthread. I suggest we consider the topic to be in the same category as politics and not pursue it here.

    GW is certainly not encouraged as a topic. We have enough trouble keeping our cool in here as it is..
  • A pretty low rate, I would assume. :)
  • Also worth pointing out that proton-proton collisions result in a short-lived resonance (fusion of sorts). The pp resonance quickly decays back into two protons. It's not until inverse beta decay, a very rare process in this case, occurs during the…

    I love that you're still following up on the Lugano test. I won't call this OCD.

    Energy balance considerations alone call Narayanaswamy's interpretation into doubt:

    Well, I just did the copy editing. Although with this many papers I made hundreds of corrections! Mostly it is thanks to Jean-Paul, the peer-reviewers and the authors.

    It is a lot of work putting out a journal.

    If anyone here…

    Remote viewing (ESP). With this technique you can even observe things that Rossi claims he did but he did not actually do, such as installing the mezzanine heat exchanger.

    Your posts reveal nothing but negative comments. AFAIK you have never created any comments or objections of scientific or a technical nature. Please try to raise your game at least a little.

    I worry that this might be a little bit of curve fitting together with wishful thinking to make the spin come out to 1/2, especially the sea quark/gluon contribution. (And on inspection I note that the bars for the individual contributions do not cleanly…

    Paradigmnoia is sticking to concrete details, some of which he himself has investigated empirically. You keep yourself limited to vague generalizations. I appreciate that the difference in persuasiveness in these two approaches may…

    I'm having a hard time going along with the possibility that the mass of the fuel would measurably change for a system heated slightly by small amounts of transmutations over a 30 day period. If there were enough transmutations…

    That is inertial confinement fusion (laser fusion). Not ITER. ITER is magnetic confinement, a.k.a. Tokamak.

    I have heard that inertial confinement is conducted mainly as a way to develop nuclear weapons. It is no longer…

    Ah, yes! My error. I was thinking of NIF. My comments would apply to NIF rather than ITER.

    I think if I have a minor objection to ITER NIF in the context of LENR, it is something along these lines:
    • I don't get the sense that dropping a series of hohlraums into an intense laser field will ever provide a practical path to power generation

    Industrial cooling water treatment uses coupons for determining corrosion rates. Precisely weighed coupons of different metals are inserted into the water stream for a period of time then removed, cleaned and weighed to measure loss (corrosion) of that…
