This may effect fusion work

Experiments and calculations allow examination of boron's complicated dance https://phys.org/news/2019-05-boron-complicated.html Work opens a path to precise calculations of the structure of other nuclei. In a study that combines experimental work and theoretical calculations made possible by super...

Re: LENR Is Real

The real meat of the fraud is in the second half of the IH answer document (The counter claim part). It would be pretty hard for Rossi's situation to be any worse than what is documented in there.

Re: LENR Is Real

As I suspected Parallel, you will not own your error. Or, maybe you just don't get it, so let me help you with some grade school science and math: Energy is power across time. Ie: Watt-hours (Wh), or (Watts * hours). Power is instantaneous force measurement, and thus has no time component. Ie: Watt...

Re: SpaceX News

I wonder if it would make more sense to launch the first reused booster with a consumable payload for the ISS ahead of the scheduled ones. Such a payload is very likely a lot cheaper than a satellite and sending one up before it's needed would mean it's loss wouldn't be a big problem if it fails.

Re: LENR Is Real

There are two sentences in the article that are rather telling... Near the beginning Industrial Heat has worked for over three years to substantiate the results claimed by Mr. Rossi from the E-Cat technology – all without success. And near the end Both the licensing payment and the first test fee we...

Re: LENR Is Real

The E-cat: cold fusion or scientific fraud?
What the “independent tests” really teach us, if we’re willing to look carefully.

Re: Energy Storage

Those are very interesting little machines capstone makes. One wonders if they're decently priced. If they were cheap you'd think every supermarket and convenience store would have one as backup for their frozen goods. Me thinks they may not be very cheap, though I don't know what would qualify as ...

At one point in the book the author describes being taken by Taylor on public roads to stand next to a rickety barbed wire fence feet away from an unguarded building full of PU239 oxide birdcages. The main thrust of the book was we need to guard such stuff much better because it would be so easy to ...
