    I was getting things wrong (OOM issue!). So I've deleted my posts.

    This looks interesting, but not much like LENR.

    It is rather the opposite. Most here think it is taking Rossi an infinite time to develop his new technology, since there is (taking the public evidence as a whole) no evidence that his ecats have ever generated excess heat.

    Mats is not an engineer. However he is a journalist and has been a remarkably good PR advocate for Rossi in the past.


    Mats saying this now, when the (not disputed) facts of the demo are different, makes him far less

    This is more tangential than usual even for Axil.

    Perhaps, Axil, you could indicate how an quark-x, even as claimed by Rossi with no evidence and significant circumstantial evidence against, to be a device that generates heat and…

    Jed, that statements applies to your assertion. My 1st statement is a counterfactual:
    Since no repeatable, well-instrumented, and carefully controlled CF experiments show COP of > 1.3
    No amount of facts can prove what I say.…

    Jed, I won't attmpt to change your mind, but will answer your points:

    (1) re papers show my explanations are ruled out. That is no doubt your bald summary of a long technical debate we could have (perhaps have had). It is not…

    I can't see why this is clearance. The technical notion of plasma rusting is at least as plausible as any of Rossi's technical ideas. Clear scientific contribution. Axil would perhaps be able ingeniously to find some way in which…

    The right place for them! Glad for the move, especially because it makes my slightly personalised post look of relatively high quality!

    Alan, were there a word for posts that evaded questions and simultaneously made vague sarky hints - I could justly apply it to your contribution on this page.

    Scaling up is not the main issue. It is that an exothermic nuclear reaction, to be sustained, seems always to require significant power input (in well instrumented cases large compared with the output). It is very difficult to…

    Blanket statements without qualification are (EDIT almost - qualification inserted) never helpful. But, in this case, MY's statement could be interpreted half true (unless you have a counterexample) in a more nuanced fashion:

    Just, in the spirit of harmony and good will, to resolve some of these apparently contradictory points:

    Alain: Rossi will do what he wants whatever other people think
    MY: Rossi cares about what others think - look at JONP!

    I believe both statements…

    Yes, well, since these guys have done that, perhaps da vinci was a clever guy too! Or perhaps those thousands of hours of field simulations are based on understanding?

    (Quote from Max Nozin)


    Yes, but if you note the required PSU it is not feasible to mismeasure it's output so as to get apparent power gain from a resistor the way Rossi does. Basically, Rossi's technique does not scale up to this size, so the quarkx is…

    Stellerators are interesting. Incredibly complex topology (which we can now calculate properly, and it seems build properly) with the possibility (no more) of much better cheaper confinement in smaller devices. What's not to…

    Don't you think perhaps that Rossi might have just a little bit of responsibility for behaving like a deceitful fraudster over the Doral test? There is no doubt that his behaviour strongly points to such an interpretation, because he…

    And, as we know, fluorescent light is not black body but instead has strong spectral lines. Using Wien's Law based on the intensity of one of those lines is therefore bound to overestimate output power.

    All this…

    No trickery needed since input power was not measured.

    Rossi's argument is based on unmeasured statements (that may or may not be true) and unwarranted assumptions about the behaviour of the PSU. Whether you call this trickery or…

    That would appear to be a non-technical judgement of TC's paper? And based not on its scientific merit but your subjective views of the author? How, in any case, would you define a scientist? Personally I'd go by the quality of the…

    Care to expand on why the TC paper is a conspiracy theory?

    Unless you think that scientists pointing out other scientists have made a technical error is a conspiracy. It is what scientists do. And, most scientists reply to it one way…
