Re: Mach Effect progress

Looking at another angle, would a ME thruster be operationally any different from a reactionless thruster? Example, could you fit a probe with such a thruster, and accelerate indefinitely so long as the power source holds (and you don't hit a speck of space dust loaded with BAM! due to relative spe...

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

(= science fiction.) Unless it is unknown science fact. The discussion of the possible application of unknown, speculated, science fact is science fiction. Much science fiction has come into being. There is nothing wrong with science fiction, as long as it is know and understood to be so, and is kn...

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

I believe I said that an electron may escort a proton to the nucleus. For example, one type of polariton is an exciton polariton where electron/hole pairs form the polariton. Might it be possible for a proton to substitute for a hole in one or more of the pairs in the matrix and be moved along with...

Re: Sorlox - FRC nautilus compressor

It seems impossible to see what possible benefit sending an FRC around such a long spiral could achieve. If there was any benefit whatsoever, it'd follow a spiral that turns in on itself as quickly as possible, one turn. or better still, straight into a short cone (maybe like Helion Energy's FRC col...

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

my understanding is that quasiparticles aren't real things. They are emergent phenomena resulting from other particles behaving in coordinated ways. ... So, when I hear that a polariton is escorting a proton into a nucleus, I just shake my head .... Spot on. The worst of it is that these quasiparti...

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

Bo Höistad: If you are referring to some form of hidden energy to cheat, we have made every effort to unmask an trick of this kind. That's simply not good enough. Ask another question - could that experiment be set up in a way that could reproduce what was observed? A truly inquisitive scientist mi...

Re: One more iec fusion devise.

Come now. There is a learning process. Be civilized. The writer or people with whom the writer interacts may be on this forum. It would be good if they are. That way, they can reflect on whether sticking their 'learning process' into the public domain to bung up legitimate and properly formed resea...

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

In fission, you add neutrons or take neutrons away to control the reaction. Does this disturb you too? Most definitely, if the fuel begins to act as its own self-feeding source of neutrons rather than a sink, and that the neutron emission exceeds the neutron absorption.... the reactor goes [edit] s...

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

If anyone wonders what the 'post-modern science' sounds like, that chrismb has referred to, then the waffle above is it. There has only ever been, and only will be, one standard of science: Objective observation, testing of hypotheses and null-hypotheses, independent replication, the experimental me...

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

In a point of comparison, Rossi has engineered BEC into his system after a long and difficult R&D process whereas the Finnish startup company Etiam OY has not done this important step yet. As in early Rossi systems, this failure to produce BEC causes gamma radiation to still occur in the Etiam ...

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

If the proton is escorted by a polariton electron member, then there is a possibility of the electron or the entire polariton absorbing the energy without significant EM production. This would be similar to the decay mode known as internal conversion. This is a fantasy interpretation of a fantasy o...

A remarkable accomplishment, using a material with a melting point 500 C lower!
