Re: LENR Is Real

I am disappointed in Rossi because Rossi has allowed the open source LENR community to be misled by the Lagano report. ... Rossi knew full well when he gave this type of reactor to the Lagano testers that it could only produce power at a level just over unity. ... Yeah, and that "isotopic shif...

Re: ITER under attack

Maybe I'm reading the chart wrong, but it appears to be bullshit propaganda. It says actual funding for fusion is less than $1B/year when it is more than $10B. How would you account for that discrepancy? DOE's budget for science and engineering is larger than NASA's budget for human spaceflight, an...

Re: LENR Is Real

I have no case to make. The Rossi reactor is close to release. It will be the first of many new designs. The Chinese manufacturing deal to produce the Rossi reactor is in place. The E-Cat production in China is being setup. The world will have to cope with LENR on it own terms. China will disrupt t...

Re: Lawaranceville E-Newsletter

Another news item from the April 7 report is that the beryllium electrodes have been ordered : The total cost of the parts will be about $135,000, although this may be somewhat reduced with the final design of the cathode. The strength of the 97.8 % pure beryllium, 44,000 psi, is guaranteed by the m...

Re: LENR Is Real

Some data is now available on the transmutation that took place. Meaning that it is certainly nuclear. Transmutation, or isotopic shifts? Isotopic shifts aren't necessarily caused by nuclear reactions. Sometimes they're caused by gas centrifuges. But even gas centrifuges consume energy. With the ho...

Re: LENR Is Real

Has anyone replicated those isotopic shifts yet? There's a market for enriched isotopes, you know.
