Re: Tokamak Energy news

I did not hear that. They are starting to build their new magnets this year, but I doubt that we will see them in a tokamak this year. Upon re-listening to it I might have indeed misinterpreted their meaning when they said that they had all the material in home to build all the HTS material to buil...

Re: Tokamak Energy news

Here's a three-minute video presentation by their CEO, Jonathan Carling: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfPZqZyZeyw He says they've completed another round of funding and are very well funded going into the "end of 2019", so it's a little dated. Thanks, I was impressed when in the video they say t...

Yes, I was referencing also to him (among the others) when I mentioned that actual theories and experimental results of phenomena that would enable a warp drive like engine didn't produce any meaningful result to date.

Re: EM Drive

Not so with fusion fuel. Than I must argue that with fusion fuel we get back to square one because in the original idea of Alcubierre warp drive there was the need of this Jupiter size mass that "hopefully" would have created the warp space effect needed to propel the craft. If we remove this from ...

Re: EM Drive

They are claiming Giorgio that they don't need "Unobtanium" if by that you mean "exotic matter" to warp space. They claim using "Quark Nuggets" harvested from asteroids bred to anti-matter will give them the fuel for the drive. They are saying that according to Sonny White's work that normal mass-e...

Re: Dark matter theories

If a tiny asteroid weighs a million tons, it's going to be obvious in it's orbit and those of objects around it. Like a few other crazy theories I've seen, it's easy enough to test it's not worth mentioning without the results of the test. I believe he is referring to rapidly spinning asteroids tha...

Regardless of how detailed they can be in their theories, before even thinking to test them they will still need unobtainable Unobtanium as stated above, and that's' the whole issue here.

Re: Dark matter theories

Being very familiar with AN/AAQ-28(V) LITENING system I can definitely state there is a huge amount of tinkering with the signal as well as the H7.0 integrating of other external sensor array. What I seen in the video was definitely NOT an artifact of processing(IMHO). Do you think that having acce...

Re: Dark matter theories

The US Navy's tic-tac & Gimbal UFO data has been acknowledged by the Navy as legitimate; radar/film data as well as credible witness observation is scientific proof Giorgio. I wouldn't make light of the significance of the government officially admitting that. The more speculative part would be try...

Re: Dark matter theories

In the realm of "maybes" everything is possible, but the more maybe you stick together to explain something, the more that something tends to be unlikely to be real. At that point it all gets to personal opinions that indeed can be one's inviolable beliefs, but are scientifically irrelevant. Because...

Re: Aluminum-air battery

There's an interesting note that the battery doesn't need pure aluminum to operate. So maybe the plan is to buy inexpensive scrap aluminum and include that in the recycling? A quickie Google search suggests an aluminum can is worth 1.7 cents at a recycling center. About 70 cans to the kilogram. Tha...

Re: Aluminum-air battery

Their concern for energy density is not the real issue, as anyhow (as they stated in the techcrunch article) their process involves transforming AL to AL(OH)3 and H2, and this is the roadstop to any wishful thinking they might have. Even on a 100% efficient conversion rate, you still need about 7kg ...

Re: Aluminum-air battery

This brings back old memories :) About 20 years ago me and a friend who owned a workshop embarked in producing an hydrogen burning engine using Aluminium wire for soldering. It worked quite well, but we both knew it was purely an academic feat, nowhere economic feasible for any application. The basi...
