MSimon, you may well be right if the whole thing is an out and out scam. Otherwise, one has to take note of Weir’s claim that he has tested the components at high voltage. In the patent he wrote: “The following data indicates permittivity of ten components measured at 85C & 3500V ...and 5000V&qu...

They have claimed things like a very low leakage rate from a component that certainly implies some components have actually been tested. Likewise I would expect a company like Lockheed Martin to at least check the basics. I suppose if EEStor is simply lying there is no proof, but are you not finding...

MSimon, I think you are being pessimistic with your >99% forecast for missing the latest deadline. From what I have read, it looks like the basic physics must have been checked out by third parties by now, but the actual fabrication is quite an engineering problem and 3,500 volts leaves little room ...

Thanks for the link Kahuna. From that I gather each 52kwh EESU has >30,000 “components” in it. It also seems that Weir claimed they made at least 10 components several years ago. I can imagine there was little desire to build and assemble 30,000 components by hand, but even a single working componen...

EEStor news

I’ve stumbled over some updates on EEStor. The first is an interview with ZENN motors’ Ian Clifford (followed by hundreds of doubting replies) http://gm-volt.com/2009/07/20/qa-with-ian-clifford-ceo-of-zenn-motors-eestor-to-publicly-prove-its-technology-imminently/ The second, a rough transcript of a...

The problem here is no mention of a control, how do we know the triple tracks weren't generated from background radiation?


It was reported that when the experiment was run without deuterium, no neutron tracks were observed.
