    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.

    I would suggest that this discussion on cooling curves and the heat/heresy relationship be moved to a dedicated thread- you can discuss our current data there with pleasure, but it's rather derailing this thread. What do you think?

    I have not been following this thread, but it now seems important.


    It would be in the range of many chemical reactions on a molar basis. For lighter elements a mole is a modest mass. Mole of H2 ~2 grams (~ 22.4 L at STP) for…

    Longview - less than a gram of fuel in all cases. Fuel tube total volume including gas space around 4 ml, loaded in air. Pure chemistry from oxidation etc very improbable in this case, If I told you the calculated energy density, you wouldn't believe…

    At some point we should be able to do this.

    To me that sounds like you don't believe in LENR.

    As for the radiation, gammas, more details of how we measure radiation can be found elsewhere in this thread, but in brief we do it by soaking a troll in gasoline and suspending…

    I just cant see what's fishy about a cooling curve taken from a system with a 25W heat source inside when compared to a cooling curve from a near identical system without an internal heat source. your argument is a bit too…

    While a bit less poetic but perhaps equally inspirational here's a glimpse of the end of the fossil fuel/fool age, revealed to Alan, Martin, and I in this afternoons experiment in the barley fields of Essex, and coming real soon to a blue planet you…

    Sigh, as for who has 'taken over this thread' as far as I know not the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, or General Woundwort has taken over this thread. The anon posers who plague this and all social media forums may think otherwise, they are welcome to do…

    I've been on holiday - back to work tomorrow. ETA - I believe that switching over to a new data-logging system(s) has been occupying quite a bit of time - but there are a number of experiments 'in hand'.

    The reactor is just a jar with electrodes and piece of electrical tape.

    Because glass and water can reflect the laser it is not good idea to fire there. So my plan is to remove cathode and fire at this directly.

    What will happen? I don't know. But it…

    The background needs to be taken in the lab, otherwise it is meaningless. Simply move it as far away as you can. Put shielding between the GS detector and your experiment if you have any. No lab background, no meaningful results.

    Yes, I have lead blocks. But if room is contaminated in any way with a vapor - what seems to be very likely after measurements - it could be meaningless.
    Moreover after days of tests there is very strange soft and sweet smell noticeable even through a…

    The link above purports to delineate all the ways gamma ray's manifest. Which for me, raises the question of whence come the lovely gammas.
