Re: Recovery.Gov Project Tracker

Teemu -- I don't remember the exact numbers for Lerner, but of course PW was unfunded for a year or two (when Bussard did the tech talk and we were writing Congresscritters). One of the things that held my interest in PWs was that Rick (in particular) was always on the level about the prospects; the...

Re: Convergent Scientific Incorporated news

Thanks for attending mvan! Great to hear Joel Rogers is helping, his PW simulations were the best I've seen, and those sizes sound like they came from him as well. A no-nub continuously-cooled design is very interesting even at that size. The fusion rate is key though, I wonder if they are having tr...

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

Thanks parallel.

Like I keep telling everyone in hot fusion, it's possible nothing commercializable will emerge from this anytime soon, if ever. OTOH, it's increasingly hard to believe all of this CF is attributable to fraud or measurement error.

Apparently we're never going to stop explaining that.

Re: Recovery.Gov Project Tracker

Nice finds guys. Can you think of anything we would look for in terms of hardware for a p-B11 run? Maybe better ion guns? I think they would still be the first fusion reactor type machine in which p-B11 has been done (iirc the others were accelerators)... Someone should drive by and look for discard...

Thanks, the comments are hilarious. "Science denial! You idiot trolls and your ad hominems! Keep it up and I'll ban you!" Good stuff.

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

I would agree with your demo/test definition and that the recent DGT was clearly a demo (I don't think they even claimed anything else). However, the last examination of the Rossi hot-Cat comes much closer to being a "test" than you intimate IMO. It did happen on Rossi's premises (extensi...

Sounds like this is what they'll be demoing: Direction two is the licensing of rights sold on our completed product; the Hyperion (45 kW of thermal energy in a self-contained 45x45x45cm box fully automated with internal software and heat management system). http://defkalion-energy.com/business/ Magi...

Company will perform 2 demos from 2 different locations (Vancouver and Milano) during next week. First demonstration 22 July 2013 For European Audience the demos will be 23rd July.

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

Big bonus if you get a shot of a Defkalion employee with some sort of induction heater up their sleeve. 8) To deserve a bonus is not so difficult. If to explain that some excess heat over electric heating without any doubt goes from chemical reaction of formulation of nickel hydride. Rossy told abo...

Will anyone be in Austin, TX in early August? http://www.ni.com/niweek/ This is where Defkalion has reportedly been telling everyone they will do a public demo. They're also giving a paper at this, apparently: http://iccf18.research.missouri.edu/ David Copperfield has been hailed by audiences and c...
