I haven't had the patience to keep up. Is this fall/winter still the agreed time when we'll be able to look inside Rossi's black box? From Defkalion's responses on its forum: - The agenda of the 1 MW presentation will be announced through their website by mid-October. - Defkalion has had units (whi...

No, you can't. I explained this. You need to accelerate up the propellant to the speed of the engines. If the engines are moving at less than the exhaust velocity, then some energy is wasted in the exhaust stream. If they are moving at more than the exhaust velocity, it takes more energy to acceler...

Oh, and both you and Carl miscalculated the rocket problem. His is worse, but they're both pretty bad. Has either of you ever heard of specific impulse? What does it matter? So long as there is net thrust, according to how you calculate it, you can pick parameters to make it over unity, right? Try ...

Let's leave the M-E device out of the picture for a moment and try something else: Take our flywheel, rotating at 600 rpm = 62.8 m/s at the rim. Say there's a liquid-oxygen/hydrogen rocket attached to the rim of the flywheel (okay, there should be at least two for balance but let's ignore that). 1g ...

Quit trying to use conservation of energy as if it were a separate physical law. It's inherent in Newtonian mechanics. And I just used Newtonian mechanics to CONCLUSIVELY PROVE that a locally over-unity device is possible using Mach-effect thrusters as a black box. Read it again. The problem I see ...

You've confused momentum and energy again. Force and power are two different things. A Mach-effect thruster uses power. It outputs force. Therefore it is not sensible to say that an M-E thruster puts power into a flywheel; what it is doing is applying a torque. And the power input to the flywheel b...

A flywheel with radius R, with Mach-effect thrusters of thrust efficiency E positioned tangentially on the edge. Power (P) is torque (T) times angular velocity (w), so given a thruster power p, the output power of an ideal generator hooked to the flywheel is P = Tw = (pE)Rw, and if ERw > 1, well......

Piantelli discovered the cure for cancer... oh yeah, and it also makes heat! He's been investigating the effects of electromagnetic fields on cancers. I haven't read anywhere that he claims to have "the cure for cancer", only that he's observed some positive outcomes when applied to early...
