    All energy production converts mass to energy. Mechanical, chemical or nuclear, it always reduces mass. So, if Rossi's gadget does produce energy, it also annihilates mass.

    Ascoli,

    I believe the hardest pill to swallow for the physisists in 1989 was the fact that some non-physisists announced that there was possibly a new nuclear phenomen that the physics community had not yet noticed.

    This was an unbearable insult, and…

    I have boiled lithium doped heavy water made for lab and NMR use from Cambridge Isotopes UK, it doesn't foam unless there is some greasy contamination there - that makes soap that makes foam. But in a clean system it just…

    Note that Hansen published better graphs of the boil off data, including voltage.

    Ascoli 65 wrote "" look for the word "foam" (or "foaming", or "foamed") acnoise.png

    It is interesting to trace the development of Ascoli's foam since its conception ön Sept 28

    from "sort of foam"

    to "residual, rising and stationary foam.

    There is no water left in the cell after an anomalous heat boil off. No water and no foam. Not only is there no water, but the plastic holder at the bottom often melted, which means the temperature was far above 100 deg C.

    There is water left during a…

    Many such alkali residues would vanish since they are very hygroscopic and absorb water from the air and redissolve spontanteously. Never tried it wil LiOD but I have no doubt it would do the same, especially as D2O is also…

    Ascoli,

    Residual foam at the end would not impact the excess heat calculation, it is just a marginal amount of water left ;-)

    Ascoli... please go evaporate 0.25 % salt solution vigorously and OBSERVE

    of residual salt that coats the bottom and sides of the test tube

    Extra points for a demented theremin.



    Theremin -- the man -- was not demented. He was amazing. He invented all kinds of things, including an externally powered bugging devices that was placed in plain view of the U.S. Ambassador in Moscow. See:

    Sam, he's been braying that same message for at least seven years now, like a demented theramin.

    I do not think it was days. It took weeks just to load in most cases. Anyway, Storms and others at Los Alamos did replicate, and they did publish. Perhaps others did not publish, but if they didn't, I wouldn't know about them.

    As for accuracy, it does help to have a high resolution source image when available, and that it is free of paper or perspective distortion. Manual sampling is an option when automatic recognition fails; that takes much less effort with a pen tablet than…
