Re: LENR Is Real

More on pump testing over at LENR-Forum. So far, the tester, Alan Fletcher, has created a nice pump curve which shows an increasing performance at under spec. back pressures. I am curious with his testing method, where he has built a large pole (tower) to run 1/2inch tube up to get up to a .5 bar di...

Re: SpaceX News

What a clear day! And the cameras are getting better every time. I really loved the 1st Stage Separation video from the ground. First time I have seen it from that angle. VERY COOL! If it weren't for thin/almost no air at that point, it would certainly come apart. It also makes one wonder about inte...

Re: SpaceX News

The dirt landings are getting pretty boring, and on plan.
The high energy boosts requiring at distance maritime landings are still sporty!

I too would love to see some excess landing fuel mass burned off using 'weight management maneuvers'!

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

I think there is a really good chance, based on the articles and research done, that LFT sourced RD-250s via Russian linked Ukrainian sources. Note that there were hundreds produced and warehoused. One of the telling notes I saw was a minor comment on links to a small group of rocketry academics dow...

Re: SpaceX News

Yay! Another launch and recover. Successful CRS-12 boost for IST Resupply. Really nice day on the Cape, and great video of the first stage boost, and fly back to the dirt pad. Starting to look routine...

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

I don't take the LFT personally. I think he is a self-absorbed nutjob who probably actually thinks it is His Right to dominate and destroy the people of DPRK in order for him to have The Great Life. After all, He Knows Better. On a side note, sounds like some of the folks in leftist government here....

Re: Sell The Whitehouse to Trump

However the implants won't work given his tinfoil lined toupee... In any event, we'll see how sporty things get this coming week with DPRK. The Little Fat Teenager continues to paint himself into a corner. He is now risking internal legitimacy given all the rhetoric; a good chunk of it for internal ...

Re: EM Drive

The only X-37B drive testing that has been made public is potentially Ion Thruster work, as far as I know. Something probably along the lines of VASIMR. I recall seeing an article on it somewhere. No time to hunt it down right now. I do recall someone running around saying that the AF and DARPA was ...

Re: Crime and Punishment: Oklahoma (& Texas) style!

Without looking it up, I would surmise a few, as in not many. These do get prosecuted.

Re: Army discovers new energy source

one part says not a catalyst (which implies O2 is getting bound up in the Al powder) but another part mentions recombining the H2 and O2 (which implies the Al powder is a catalyst) Hence my question on the reaction's residue. Too little information at this point to really understand what they have....

Re: Crime and Punishment: Oklahoma (& Texas) style!

Was that not on the same scale as consuming a bathtub of Diet Coke may correlate to getting cancer? That said, I do agree that humans were not meant to exist as 'hive' animals, and many historical representations and studies support that. While not having read the primate study, the thought does not...

Re: Army discovers new energy source

Interesting. I wonder how hard it is to make the powder, and what kind of residues are left in the reaction chamber.

This is along the lines of dropping a sodium tab into water.

Re: SpaceX News

2.45 gals kerosene at about 6.82 lbs /gal at 10% tnt equivalent gives 1.67lbs tnt. 3.85 gals LOX at 9.52lbs/gal at 60% tnt equivalent gives 22lbs tnt. Grand total: 23.67lbs tnt. That will level a house for sure. It is akin to a Hellfire hit, which has an equivalent warhead of about 23lbs tnt (20lbs ...
