    On the other hand, he did get into Harvard, which was not easy.

    He left after 3 years, so I doubt he was 18. He said he had a wonderful time.

    He programmed the BASIC interpreter for a computer he had never…
  • There is an update on the MK1 Microreactor of Norront:


    Now in 3D. They also have left out the end-users.
    This makes sense, with an initial 15 kW you can't even sufficiently heat one Norwegian family house during winter.

    Mechanism of thermal runaway as a cause of Fleischmann-Pons effect

    Starting from papers by Fleischmann and Pons, many investigators have found the excess power effect during a heavywater electrolysis. They connected this effect with the deuterons“cold…

    The French word "enquête" has been badly translated in "investigation" while here it means "poll" or "survey". To know when and where the conference should happen.

    It would only be a premise if you state the reasons why an air flow calorimeter of his design might be faulty.

    As far as I know, this kind of air flow calorimeter works. Let me state my main reasons:

    Thank you for the correction, and apologies to Jed. That straightens some things out. I went back and edited out my comment about Saito being Muto. Then added: "an interview with Masao Muto. He is President of another company called…

    Yes, my understanding is there was some initial funding, but not sure how much. It was enough though to build a "support team", but it must have been barely enough for that, as we were also told they have limited resources. Definitely…

    The article confused me on that. I was told after my post that 北海光電子 is Hokkai Kodenshi Corp. Does that make more sense?

    That photo data seems to be for the borrowed lab photo.
    I can't seem to pull any date metadata from the Mizuno calorimeter photo, (other than the Nov 2016 calendar).

    Yeah, it does get frustrating. LENR has been down this road too many times since FPs. But there have been replications of the R20 tech though; i.e. Zhang, and then a Frenchman (COP1.18)...although he is having second thoughts about,…

    Great news the site is genuine...
    The finding are interesting...

    I don't yet catch the link with ""Hokukai Koden" (Headquarters: Sapporo City, President Masao Muto)" ? I though they were in California from the photography...

    From the…

    Another good find. To put this all together, and add to what Alan already mentioned. The Mizuno Technologies Inc. (MTI) website is real, and admittedly "slapped together" by one of the team members, who is not an expert at web…

    No he did not. They agreed that one was needed so a team member (not an HTML expert by any means) rustled up a placeholder site - which will be updated as time permits.

    The Mizuno patent application linked above appears to be for an apparatus distinct from the R20 system as described to us. It seems to be an externally similar cell, but with provision for high voltage sputtering from a Pd wire wound on a central…

    For me it smells bad... But who knows. I would be happy if it is real effort by T. Mizuno and associates... I just doubt it is.
    My full support to T. Mizuno himself, whatever is that website.

    NB: can someone competent intentify the…

    At this point I would wonder if Mizuno himself is aware of the existence of this website ....

    I don't agree. Mizuno has been quite generous about sharing information and equipment with other researchers without demanding payment. His track record isn't perfect, but he does seem to be sincere

    2 years is nothing. I have worked on and off in R&D ( mostly on) for decades and know plenty of established technologies that took over 10 years to got from lab bench to pilot plant, and 5 years from 'that's funny' to 'that might be…
