http://sci.esa.int/venus-express/34067-venus-vs-earth/ or, more detailed: http://www.skepticalscience.com/Venus-runaway-greenhouse-effect.htm Working out the details of the GHE is really complex, and few people seem to understand the basics. For example, the earth's atmosphere is opaque to IR wavele...

Re: Proton-Boron Open Polywell

How do you average zero crossing data over 7 cycles? If you reckon the noise is Gaussian time invariant then it is straightforward. But more likely the noise is different. Getting the best possible frequency from such data is quite interesting in itself. As a first attempt I'd take the median value ...

Re: LENR Is Real

Right, but the powder, mixed with what at high temperatures will be a reducing agent, sintered, will form porous nickel. It is expected. No LENR required.

You do, however, need a fairly hefty heater. Funny that LENR excess heat experiments always seem to need that...

Re: LENR Is Real

If you have looked at the structure of that Ni62 micro particle from the Lagano report, it is impossible to fabricate that particle without spending many millions of dollars for Ni62. It still retains the nanowires on the surface of the particle that is typical of that type of commercial off-the-sh...

Re: LENR Is Real

Tom Clarke: To address your point more directly: The X7 here comes from: X3 is because the wrong temperature makes COP 3 when it should be 1 There remains approx X2 "acceleration". This COP of between 1 and 2 in the maximun sweet spot temperature zone is consistant with the experimental r...

Re: LENR Is Real

I might check whether arxiv will publish this in response to the UoB publication without expecting anyone else to publish. You should. I read through it last night and it is excellent, and written so well it was easy for a non-physicist, yet technical person such as myself to follow with ease, incl...

Re: LENR Is Real

Rossi occupies a space where companies with nothing seem to be able to continue for decades. Look at BLP. He is more blatant in his lies - but somehow this does not worry his followers.

Re: LENR Is Real

Because: (1) such a real effect would be extraordinary (2) Rossi has given no evidence of anything real, and many lies I suppose, for the sake of completeness, he could have stumbled onto something real and Nobrl Prize worthy, have faked 15 demos, none of which show it, and be a natural liar who jus...

Re: LENR Is Real

Here is how I think it works with Rossi. (1) He convinces himself that he has something that works, even though he knows it does not. (People are like that). He justifies ash substitution etc as doing what it takes to get funding for world-saving tech. He works to "optimise" the effect. or...

Re: LENR Is Real

Thanks Giorgio, I should note (and do in the paper) that there is almost nothing original. Others as you know have made the points I made though not followed through with the calculations. Arxiv is for papers that will be published elsewhere. I can't see my comment getting published anywhere unless ...

Re: LENR Is Real

A calibrated ghosted dummy reactor driven by the same power source seems like a good way to show overunity power production no matter where the heat sensors are placed as was done in the last MFMP test. Opinion? It is terrible: Spot measurement is unreliable if: (1) thermal charactersitics of devic...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5b5qeZZmBo Upcoming MFMP heat measurment methods You would think that flow calorimetry was pretty well bulltet proof.

Re: LENR Is Real

Tom, have you looked at the MFMP efforts and are they making similar errors? I see they have a control -- not sure what else is different. MFMP are fine, and they are measuring temperature directly. Their problem (which they admit) is that spot temperature measurement is not a reliable way to measu...

Re: LENR Is Real

the power supply was increased by slightly more than 100 W. The effect of raising power input was an increase in power emission of about 700 W. Such a measurment is a realitive power measurment not subject to temperature calibation errors. In that high reactor temperature range, its COP was 7. To a...

Re: LENR Is Real

It seems no-one wants to read the entire thing, so let me summarise the mistake made by the Lugano report authors. They made a few other mistakes, like not having a control, or following manufacturer guidelines by checking emissivity with independently measured temperature, either of which would hav...
