Rust (iron oxide) is almost non-magnetic, and in certain forms makes up a significant component of clay. If the "graphite" was from pencil "lead" as has been indicated before, the charcoal could have reduced the FeOx to Fe metal which is usually magnetic. No mystery here. Perhaps. And certainly wor...

What are you going to do when there are about five billion Rossi-bots when the E-Cat technology goes on the market? If the "E-Cat technology" were being sold, it could be independently tested by anybody who chose to buy and test one. No skepticism would be necessary. This goes to the heart of why s...

By the way, I do believe that the cynics out there are bad. They are the worst examples of humanity. People who suspend belief until provided with compelling evidence are "bad"? People who demand extraordinary proof before accepting extraordinary claims are "the worst examples of humanity"? Presuma...

Well, sure, gold would quickly be about as valuable as lead, and of course that means the biosphere just lost a key ingredient forever, but hey! If we could manufacture gold and produce it cheaply enough and in sufficient quantity (i.e. using an ordinary microwave oven), it would be fantastically u...

I quickly read through the PDF and didn't see this noted. Can you find the claimed before and after elemental/isotopic composition, and transcribe it here? I thought I remembered seeing it in the pdf, but it is not there, sorry. Looks like the best thing to do is to do a test and see how it comes o...

If this guy is convinced he is right, he should do a before and after check on his carbon with a mass spectrometer. He has provided some before and after spectrum analysis in the link to the pdf.

I think he have made some pytolytic graphite. Heh. You beat me to the punch line. I agree. I would be shocked and stunned if this were really fusing carbon...

Re: Cold fusion in your microwave in 10 minutes

Three videos about Carbon to Iron fusion performed in a simple test in the microwave oven Very interesting. I have always had a thing for using feedback control to do things like suppress and enhance particular harmonic modes in gas and plasma resonance chambers -- though you really need some good ...

What I just noticed was the "Full and Open Competition" statement. The last was Sole Sourse with a J&A. Maybe this IS something new. Sure. Anybody with a WB-6, a WB-7.1, all prior reports, and all previously discovered testing data, etc, which is all just sitting around taking up space in their gar...

The demonstration was held as part of a seven-day IAP ("Independent Activities Period") course at MIT.

Re: United States: State of the Union 2012, energy section

President Obama said, We can also spur energy innovation with new incentives. The differences in this chamber may be too deep right now to pass a comprehensive plan to fight climate change. But there's no reason why Congress shouldn't at least set a clean energy standard that creates a market for i...

The one little tidbit I'll offer is that they no longer leave their garage bay door open. Evidently some people were nosy! Other than that, I'll say it is really shiny.
