Re: One more iec fusion devise.

Hopelessly confused. It would have been worthwhile for this person to have studied IEC devices for a while. There is no chance that a target grid at earth potential will result in a meaningful flow of fast ions towards it. Instead, the ions will simply go in every-which direction away from the 'focu...

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

The straw man fallacy occurs in the following pattern of argument: Person 1 has position X. Person 2 disregards certain key points of X and instead presents the superficially similar position Y. The position Y is a distorted version of X and can be set up in several ways, including: Presenting a mi...

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

Rossi is not a scientist and applying scientific criteria to him is... well, dumb. Really? So evidence no longer counts? Marvelous. This is what chrismb used to refer to as 'post-modern science'. It is a democratisation of science. One does not need to be 'a scientist' to 'do science', and then tha...

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

Q - Are you reasonably certain that both Ni62 and Ni64 are indeed reacting? If so; which one reacts fastest? Rossi - I do not know which one reacts fastest. To be uncommonly fair about it ... if Nickel is enriched then one might well pick '61 to 62ish' asthe target cut between the lighter and heavi...

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

Does he provide any explanation for why he says boron is included in the shield? Boron is exclusively a neutron shield, but if the only reaction is a gamma emitting Ni to Cu EM mediated protonisation, then boron would serve zip zero purpose. It sounds like someone who has half-read about fission rea...

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

Access to essentially unlimited amounts of nuclear energy already exist. The issue is; - it still costs money to build power stations - fossil fuels are still more flexible - waste products simply float away in the breeze, so why move to one where the waste materials have to be managed for a million...

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

My POV is that if Rossi is proven to lie and contradict himself it does not necessarily follow (with the information publicly available) that his invention is a definite scam. There are also scams where people don't have to lie. (e.g collateralised debt vehicles). Confusion-marketing helps though. ...

From the Essen Kullander report: The central container seen in figure 3 has an estimated volume of 50 cm^3 and it contains 50g of nickel. The container has on its top, a pipe for the filling of hydrogen gas. During the running we used the rightmost one of the devices, figure 4, which is surrounded b...

Kidding, right?


(... or will this be another KSAism, wherein Enginerd argues the inconsistencies in the Koran are not Mohammed's words, but are, in fact, God's words?)

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

Nice try, but hear-say. We have no idea what the actual conversation was and since one side was coming from the "nuclear fission" side and probably has a very limited definition of what HE meant by "nuclear reaction" This is one reason why hear-say is not often admitted in court. 'Hearsay' is, tech...

Re: 10KW LENR demonstrator (new thread)

What importance of your perception of "Rossi lying" is...? very little... it is an issue for you but hardly an "issue" for Rossi; ~only perception of people having access to tech is relevant (see my post above)... ('you'?) The importance of Rossi lying is that he, and others of his ilk, damage the ...
