    Just to comment on ITER.

    I know environmentally-minded young physicists who are now going into hot fusion because they see it as a way forward for our technological civilisation that can beat climate change.

    Now, personally, I'm not so sure. I see more…

    While that is true to first order, it will not be exactly true. how inexact would depend on reactor topology.

    The key thing is that the heater will be hotter than the reactor, and its temperature. If there is any thermal…

    I'd like to warn against false negative comments about Rossi.

    He is a master of PR and while his posting himself under socks on his blog is habitual and proven, and paying click-farms to promote his ridiculous researchgate publications is likely, no-one…

    I am finally in condition to do a first fueled runs. Not too much time...
    During calibration one question came to my mind. When I insert nickel mesh inside the reactor it will change thermal conductivity to some extent. But how much it will affect…

    Adiabatic temperature rise= 0.243 C
    which is a large proportion of 0.35 C.(actually measured)

    Oh, wow. I've not been reading here carefully. Is it really true that the results here are based on such a low temperature difference (out - in)? Surely not! It…

    Jed,

    This summarises the (only) difference between us on this site.

    You make assumptions. I don't. And you simplify. It may be 100% obvious those things need to be checked (is it, to everyone, given many replicators are not…

    To answer this: if the average out temp is different from the sensor temp due to non-mixed air, then many changes in conditions, e.g. small ones that will exist always between cal and active, could change this and result in a…

    As I said, nit picking. There is no evident way in which such a large difference in temperature with the same electric energy input can be explained by anything conventional.

    The issue is what is the heat loss. I agree differences between cal and active…

    Here we go.

    There might be thus-and-such a problem.

    Specifically, a difference between active and cal runs that results in 30% less heat output from the calorimeter on cal run than on active.

    All that is needed for this is for the…

    They get 150C temperature change over 4 inches of the feeder tube. The (easier) methods that they have not said are (1) use smaller diameter tube and (2) use several meters of tube, all insulated. The tube thermal conductivity scales…

    It is interesting how the low bit-rate communication style works for Rossi.

    Each yes/no question delivers 1 bit of Rossi info.

    N multiple choice deliver log2(N) bits.

    With such a very small level of information revealed Rossi is less likely to deliver…

    Heavy electrons were posted by Widom & Larsen as a way to make (possibly slow) neutrons from protons. Obviously the electron needs to provide the necessary mass difference => very fast.

    If this step did work, then all those slow…

    As the waters recede, all the animals disembarked from the Ark, with strict, and divinely mandated, instructions from Noah to go forth and multiply.

    Secrecy invoke is easy. What about "not working"?

    That is why we keep a few token skeptics around...to keep us honest.

    Or as PR to help you seem honest?

    One very obvious problem (both sides guilty of it) is imagining that USPTO can possibly either validate or refute scientific theories! It is no way their job nor can they have relevant expertise.

    They want to show they are smarter than cold fusion researchers. Or, they want to sit at the cool kids table in junior high. Or as they say in Japan, there is safety in numbers.

    My primary interest here is in educating myself: and trying to understand the experiments does that. For example, I for the first time learnt about heat exchangers when working out whether Rossi's claimed heat exchanger could…
