Or, it could just be that there is no clear path to success, but there are still tantalizing hints it just might work, and the Navy figures a small bet on a long shot with a big payout is a reasonable investment. I think this is the most likely explanation. And as long as the Navy is funding it, we ...
What I would strongly expect, if the results are significant, is that one of the replicatable experiments can be written up really well and investigated. Why would LENR people not do this? Greed, perhaps? If they truly believe their experiments have produced energy through nuclear fusion maybe they...

China Lake and Point Mugu are the locations of the sponsoring organization: Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWCWD). I don't think that implies anything about EMC2 moving to one of those locations.

No one can say with any certainty that we will be able to continue growing our material culture without bound. However, it is by no means certain that we are near some maximum and face an inevitable decline. My own guess is that, if humanity survives long enough, we will find the current era to be o...

Pretty cool. The slideshow was a bit like a history of civilization. You start in the early frames with a plumb bob and a T-square (known to the ancient Egyptians) and by the time you get to the end you have a fusion reactor!
As long as they have funding they don't need a PR machine. That's a good thing, actually. I'm happy to wait until they have something definitive to announce. Well, not exactly "happy" but I can live with it.

He was pretty active up until June 2009. Since then, not a peep.
have you ever thought that perhaps they purposely tweaked the device to produce the bright plasma sor the puspose of a picture? how boring would it have been to the general public without the light Recall the picture of a glowing plasma on the old EMC2 website, which specifically said it was a Heli...
Tom Clarke, Thank you for a calm and fair summary of the situation. I agree with you completely. I think the anger at Rick Nebel is completely unjustified. He hasn't over-promised and he hasn't lied. He just...hasn't said much. It always seemed likely that the only way we would ever learn anything a...
If the glow is just black body radiation then the color would only tell you the temperature. If it is from the emission spectrum of the gas then perhaps you could infer the composition. The paper you linked was heavy sledding for a non-scientist like me, but it seems to be talking about measuring ve...
Here's a noob question for you guys: does the color of the plasma in the WB-7 photo tell you anything about what elements/isotopes are present? I've seen photos of deuterium plasmas in fusors that had a more purplish color. Is the color significant?
Abandoning the patent application doesn't mean they are abandoning any commercial or proprietary interest in the technology. So that doesn't make any sense to me as a grounds for protesting the FOI denial. Companies basically have two ways to protect the commercial value of their intellectual proper...
