    Shane, with regard to dogbone “replications”: what does that even mean? What is actually known about Rossi’s supposed device apart from what it looks like? The innards and operational principles are a bigger secret than the Manhattan Project. …

    One step at a time. First make it convincing within the lab to a visiting physicist. That will facilitate other steps such as having it independently replicated. It is not likely people will try to replicate it as things now stand,…

    I do not think there is any chance a journal would publish this. JCMNS might, but it takes a long time. Many months and lots of painful peer-review. Not to mention copy editing by me, unless the author objects.

    When you are ready…

    By "publish" I mean to make publicly accessible. So the other channels you mention could well fit the bill. Publishing on this site would fit the bill.

    I am not urging you to immediately and fully disclose everything you have.…

    Well given your results right now, which have attracted interest, the fastest way to proceed would be to publish every detail of your methods immediately. I understand that there are lots of reasons not to do this and I think…

    No doubt this person will see far more data than you have published here. So perhaps it will be convincing. I said "The data published here is intriguing but it will not convince any scientists." That does not mean you don't have…

    Well, we have a very serious hard-nose Physicist here today, going through the data and looking at the hardware in operation. It will be interesting to see if we can make a dent in his skepticism about our work.

    Adrian, I'm sorry but, from somone who claims to be an engineer, that really is not good enough.

    (1) The input power was never measured during operation
    (2) The PSU was much larger than needed for the claimed low input…

    This is not about Synthestech, but another Russian group. While Synthe cashed in on the hope of LENR+, by capitalizing on the Bitcoin craze, this new group appears to be doing the same using Crowdfunding:

    I doubt that. There is no scientific theory explaining how the reaction works. No one knows where to begin to overcome the control problem. They resemble people who tried to make semiconductors from the 1920s up to 1949. They had…

    Yes, that has often happened. Which is not to say that is where Smith is headed.

    Conceptually, is little difference between posting information online and presenting it at a conference. As travel become more and more expensive in terms of cost and carbon, the two will merge. The issue of anonymity is…

    Fair enough. However to the extent that the disclosure of basic science results is delayed by engineering aspirations, this all begins to sound like a familiar scenario from the lenr world. A scenario that so far has resulted…

    These two statements are a bit at odds.

    Let me sophisticate my previous question a bit. If you are able to satisfy yourself that your present results are beyond artefact, would you then seek to publish…

    That is because no one has shown really compelling evidence of lenr before. I know that saying this will get people's backs up but really ... it hasn't. And the lack of widespread interest is the proof.

    A distinction should…

    Of course not. They do not realize cold fusion exists. If they knew it was real, large corporations and well equipped universities would be studying and making great progress. Many of them did in the early 1990s, before the…

    I guess the troll like comments here are born inside their chronic ignorance of the reality.


    "public names working on Ni/H" does not mean that there is any connection to Rossi!!

    10 W would be just as good. It would transform the lives of people because it would convince many scientists and engineers that the effect is real, and they would take it from there. They can produce a practical device much more…
