What is Going on With Mizuno Replication Efforts?

This post is a question rather than a report. When Tadihiko Mizuno and Jed Rothwell published their paper “Increased Excess Heat from Palladium Deposited on Nickel” in June of this year, they also included detailed instructions on how they carried out their experiment, and were encouraging experimenters to try and replicate what was reported.

So far, the only report I have seen from anyone who has tried a replication has been from H Zhang: (https://www.lenr-canr.org/acrobat/ZhangHreproducti.pdf) who reported achieving 9.6 W of excess heat, which was a lot less than Mizuno himself reported (up to 3 kW of excess heat).

So I’m just wondering if anyone knows about other work going on in this area, or could give any status updates. The Mizuno paper seems to be a good starting point for people to try and get a positive LENR results, but there hasn’t been as much reported as I had hoped.

I realize it has only been a few months since the paper was published, and there must be a lot of specialized equipment and setup required to run these experiments, so maybe my hopes for quick results and reports are unrealistic.

If anyone could provide news, updates, information, etc. I am sure there would be a lot of people who would be interested and appreciative.

Report: British Engineer Deveops Scrap Aluminum Powered Fuel Cell

Thanks to Bob Greenyer for posting this link to an article from the Daily Mail about a British engineer named Trevor Jackson who has signed a deal with a company called Austin Electric to start making fuel cells which run from scrap aluminum.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7592485/Father-eight-invents-electric-car-battery-drivers-1-500-miles-without-charging-it.htmlhttps://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7592485/Father-eight-invents-electric-car-battery-drivers-1-500-miles-without-charging-it.htmlhttps://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7592485/Father-eight-invents-electric-car-battery-drivers-1-500-miles-without-charging-it.html

From the article:

Jackson gave me a demonstration. He cut off the top of a can of Coke, drained it, filled it with the electrolyte, and clipped electrodes to it, powering a small propeller. ‘The energy in this will keep the propeller spinning for a month,’ he said. ‘You can see what this technology could do in a vehicle if you scale it up.’ Following last week’s deal with Austin, that is exactly what is about to happen. Three immediate projects are about to go into production.

Multi-million Pound Crowdfunding Success for New Nuclear Plant (Moltex Energy)

Here’s some evidence that there’s an appetite out there from individual investors to fund new energy technology.

Fortune is reporting about a new and successful effort by a British company Moltex Energy to crowdfund the development of a molten salt nuclear fission reactor they call a stable salt reactor (SSR) which uses nuclear waste as a fuel, and which the company claims is inherently safe because as the temperature rises in the reactor, the fission slows down, and would shut off if there was overheating, avoiding the possibility any kind of meltdown event.

The Fortune article is here:

https://fortune.com/2019/10/18/nuclear-power-crowdfunding-moltex/

Moltex claims that the size of its SSR reactor would be less 1/20th the size of a conventional reactor of equal power, and the plants would be cheaper to build and operate than even conventional power plants.

There are many companies working on molten salt nuclear designs, but one interesting aspect about the Moltex SSR is the way they are going about funding their work.  Fortune reports that Moltex launched  an effort to raise 700,000 GBP via crowdfunding via the Shadow Foundr website, and ended up raising 2.7 GBP from 156 funders.

Moltex states that New Brunswick Power in Canada wants to build a SSR reactor, and if all goes to plan it will be going online in 2028.

Here is an overview of the SSR

Interesting and Simple Experiments for Transmutation by Roberto Mondaini (Curbina)

The following post has been submitted by Curbina.

Today I became aware for the first time, thanks to member BruceInKonstanz of LENR-forum, of the claims of Italian Radio Technician Roberto Mondaini about being capable of transmutation of elements in a simple electrolyzer experiment.

It is easy to dismiss the experiment at first sight as the conditions reported are close to the ones necessary to form CuOH(2). However Mondaini has supporting analysis that say that what is formed is copper sulphate and copper sulphite, while S is notoriously absent from the water, copper wires and reactives used.

He also claims that if the experiment is left to run for three days (with periodic pole swapping to clean the electrodes) most of the K present initially is transmuted to Na, and he also shows analytical evidence to support this.

These videos have been published for 7 years and I had never heard anything of him. BruceInKonstanz attended ICCF 22 and spoke with Mondaini there. He also says has replicated the experiments with apparent production of copper sulphate/sulphite but he has not performed analysis.

I think this is a very easy to replicate experiment, except for the analytical part which requires external services, therefore I wanted to share this with you to see if it interests the E-catworld readers or to see if anyone knows about him.

The links to the three part transmutation videos (which have an English voice over that I assume has some minor mistakes) are here:

Assessment of Rossi and the E-Cat (Mats Lewan)

Thanks to Mats Lewan for this comment on his thoughts about the current state of affairs regarding Andrea Rossi and the E-Cat (provided in response to Bruce Williams in this thread

Bruce – it is difficult to report on Rossi’s activities at the moment since there’s no confirmed news. At all. However, lately I have been regularly in contact with Rossi, and I have also gone through large parts of the documentation from the court case. I start to have a clearer idea on what really happened, and why everyone reacted as they did, including IH. Will try to confirm my hypothesis and report on it some day.

The conclusion and my assessment, in any case, is that Rossi has what he claims. First, nothing else makes sense. Second, what Rossi tells me keeps making sense (theory, experiments, efforts, ambitions, behaviour, doubts, etc etc).

I don’t know anything about his ongoing sales of heat to customers. I have the impression that he is very careful about letting customers in, while also being strongly focused on the R&D of SSM.
I also think he could be ready to do a convincing demo (significantly easier with SSM since there’s no input at all), maybe closed, which could move some things.

At that point comes the question on how to diffuse the technology to the world in an efficient way. I have my opinions and I’m ready to help if I get the opportunity. From my point of view, this amazing story is continuing, and I’m still curious about where it will lead.

Yet, I understand that as an outside observer, without talking with Rossi, it’s very difficult to get a reasonably solid idea on what he is doing. Which is why it will come as a complete surprise to the world if he one days presents a solid and viable technology.

A few days ago I went to a presentation by Nassim Nicholas Taleb about his new book, Skin in the Game. I refer to his book The Black Swan in my book, and I will try to send him a copy. Probably he won’t read it, but if he does I would be curious about his view on the situation. Viable LENR is so far from most people’s imagination that it would by all means be a black swan. Therefore, before bringing such technology to the world, however useful it might be, some work would need to be done in order to make it come to good use.

SAFIRE Project has New Mandate – ‘Create Beneficial and Commercially Viable Transformative Technologies for Humanity’

Thanks to Artefact for posting this video.

The SAFIRE project is going to be presenting at the GlobalBEM Conference to be held November 9 & 10, in Breukelen, The Netherlands.

It appears that SAFIRE project is moving into a new phase. Until now their presentations were rather understated in terms of the claims they were making. The would show things in their plasma engine that was unusual and interesting but not make any bold claims about what was going on.

This video is has a different tone. They are announcing themselves as “Transformative Technology”, and say that their “new mandate” is to “create beneficial and commercially viable transformative technologies for humanity”, with these captions:

Plasma Compression Fusion Device (US Navy Patent)

Thanks to Bob Greeyer for posting this link to a patent application from the US Department of the Navy published on September 26, 2019 for a “Plasma Compression Fusion Device”.

https://patentimages.storage.googleapis.com/1a/2e/a3/0df9bcb37c0593/US20190295733A1.pdf

Here is the abstract:

A plasma compression fusion device which includes a hollow duct and at least one pair of opposing counter spinning dynamic fusors . The hollow duct includes a vacuum chamber disposed within the hollow duct . Each dynamic fusor has a plurality of orifices and an outer surface which is electrically charged . In combination, the pair(s) of dynamic fusors create a concentrated magnetic energy flux and electromagnetic radiation within the vacuum chamber, whereby the concentrated magnetic energy flux compresses a mixture of gases that are injected through the orifices to the vacuum chamber such that a plasma core is created, and the to electromagnetic radiation heats the plasma core, while
produced magnetic fields confine the plasma core between the dynamic fusors, such that when an additional mixture of gases is introduced into the plasma core through the orifices, an energy gain is created .

In the description section of the application it explains:

All these methods of plasma confinement have grave issues, such as an extremely large size ( commensurate to that of an aircraft carrier ) requirement, plasma instabilities for tokamaks, and power losses and short confinement times for magnetic mirror / cusp machines. None of these confinement methods to date have been able to achieve break-even fusion reactions, namely the condition for fusion power output to equal the power input, let alone achieve the ignition condition whereby a fusion plasma burn is self sustained, without need for external power input. As a result, there is a need for an effective plasma compression fusion device, which creates an energy gain.

So it seems that this invention is intended to self-sustain without the need for energy input, an achievement that would of course be a huge breakthrough in the fusion field. We don’t know, however, if here is any experimental evidence that this method actually works, or whether this is just an idea that researchers think could work.

The Admiral Thomas Wilson Document – Secrets of UFO Cover-up Revealed (‘UFO Researcher’)

The following post has been submitted by ‘UFO Researcher’.

Since there has been some discussion of UFO topics at E-Cat World I thought it might be interesting to some of the readers to bring to their attention a document that has received a lot of attention in recent weeks in the UFO community.

The Admiral Thomas Wilson document is a leaked file which composed of the notes from a meeting between Dr. Eric W. Davis, a scientist with EarthTech International, a research organization in Austin, Texas.  and former Adm. Thomas Wilson in the back of his staff car at the EG&G building in Las Vegas. (Davis is also a former employee of The National Institute for Discovery Science, an organization  founded in 1995 by Nevada real-estate developer Robert Bigelow for the study of UFOs and paranormal phenomena)

The original Thomas Wilson document is available here: https://imgur.com/a/ggIFTfQ. It was obtained by James Rigney,  an Australian architect, space enthusiast and UFO researcher, who says that he received the document from a trusted source who provided it to him on strict condition of anonymity. Rigney states that he did not leak this file to the public (it was first posted on Reddit), but it is likely that someone he had shared it with did. An interview by Richard Dolan with Rigney regarding his role in obtaining this document is available here.

In this document, years after the events unfolded, Adm. Thomas Wilson gives an account of how he was told by Dr. Steven Greer of the Disclosure Project about the existence of Special Access Projects (SAPs) holding UFO material. This information led to him to search for these projects within the US Defense establishment. He ended up finding the SAPs; however, after speaking with SAP managers, he was denied access to these projects, despite his position as the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency.

However, in this leaked document, he tells Eric Davis, who now works for Hal Puthoff of Earthtech and To The Stars Academy (and who also happens to be a scientific adviser for the SAFIRE Project) that he was told that they (the SAP) had a craft, and “it was technology that was not of this Earth – not made by man – not by human hands. He was also told that the SAP were working on “reverse engineering”

I believe that the Wilson document represents nothing less than a smoking gun which provides absolute evidence of the reality of crash recoveries of ET craft and ultra-classified unacknowledged and “waived” (meaning even more exempt from reporting requirements),

This is literally the most important document ever obtained by the UFO community. It’s authenticity is unquestionable. On the record, all of the major players that used to work for NIDS or are currently affiliated with To The Stars Academy have made such confusing, odd statements about the document that while not blatantly admitting it’s true, seem to confirm its authenticity. For example, here is a statement by Hal Putoff when asked by UFO researcher Richard Dolan about the document:

Rich,

With regard to authenticity, we have no comment on the documents recently being circulated. As some of us still retain USG security clearances and remain bound by the secrecy oaths we have taken, we believe it is in the best interest of the USG and ourselves not to comment on any documents that purport to describe classified USG programs or information.

Best regards,

Hal

https://richarddolanmembers.com/articles/the-wilson-leak-latest-developments/

Additionally, the fact that Eric Davis has not refuted the document is additional suggests that it’s real. A few other documents, which are not discussed here, from Edgar Mitchell’s archive have been released and prove that this document is authentic.

Perhaps one of the biggest takeways from this document is that we now know who in the government actually knows the truth about the UFO/ET reality: a group called the Special Access Program Oversight Committee and their leadership team called the Senior Review Group. Going back through public records that are freely available on the internet, we can determine who was in this group, who they reported to (the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense who would then report to the Under Secretary of Defense) and know who really has information about these issues.

I have created an  annotated version of the Admiral Thomas Wilson which includes my findings after intensely studying the document and scouring the internet for information.

https://theadmiralthomaswilsonufodocument.blogspot.com/2019/10/the-annotated-admiral-thomas-wilson-ufo-document.html

I believe I have found three fundamental questions about the document: the likely name of the Chairman of the Senior Review Group that made the decision to deny Adm. Wilson access to SAPs, and threatened his career, the likely name of the investigator who had previously almost exposed their programs, and the name of the contractor who is working on the UFO technology.

In this document, Admiral Wilson refers to “core secrets” that are defined as information that if revealed could bring about the failure of a government program. Let’s spread this document and these core secrets far and wide to help accelerate UFO disclosure.

In terms of the connections between UFOs and advanced energy technologies I believe there are many potential connections.

The EVO (Exotic Vacuum Object) phenomena is likely a critical component of many UFO technologies including energy production and propulsion. EVOs are also at the heart of LENR or cold fusion and almost every exotic energy technology going back the past hundred years. I think one reason, out of several, for the suppression of such exotic energy technologies in the past, such as LENR, was that they could lead to the same technologies the unacknowledged Special Access Projects were working on privately.

Many UFOs seem to produce a bright light around themselves and produce a strange audible sound – this is most likely because they are creating a field configuration around themselves that mimics that of an EVO. Kenneth Shoulders described how EVOs could negate a huge portion of their mass and energy almost as if they were surrounding themselves in a “warp bubble.” He was able to accelerate EVOs to high speeds, tiny fractions of the speed of light, for extremely low input energies. A UFO with the same field configuration – for example a bubble of magnetic vector potential – could reduce it’s mass/inertia. This would result in amazing performance characteristics including reactionless thrust, seamless travel through various media (transitioning through space, atmosphere, and water), instant acceleration, etc. Basically, instead of the UFO traveling at high speeds a portion of space around the craft would be traveling through space. This is likely the same mechanism used by the Fluxliner ARV (Alien Reproduction Vehicle) manufactured by Lockheed and witnessed by Brad Sorensen at their Palmdale facility. Also, the TR3B black triangle craft is stated to be real according to Tom Delonge of TTSA who was informed by his principle advisers, Gen. William Neil McCasland, a former Director of Special Projects for OUSDAT and Senior Review Group member, and Robert F. Weiss a former Vice President of Lockheed and manager of Skunkworks.

 

MFMP Live Document: “ULTR – Affordable ultrasonic driven transmutation?”

The Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project has published a new live document on its website titled “ULTR – Affordable ultrasonic driven transmutation?”

http://www.quantumheat.org/index.php/en/home/mfmp-blog/552-ultr-affordable-ultrasonic-driven-transmutation

The goal of this ULTR project is to try and determine if it is possible “induce transmutation using an
off-the-shelf affordable ultrasonic cleaner”. The document explains that Alan Goldwater noticed that when examining a sample of indium that he had cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner he uses for cleaning SEMP parts, it showed unexpected marks that could possibly be potential signs of elemental changes.

Images and data are shown in the document, along with a description of the apparatus used and testing methods employed.

Brilliant Light Power Claims COP of ~5, 100 kW Excess Heat with Suncell

There is a news report in the News section of the Brilliant Light Power website reporting on calorimetry results from recent testing done with the SunCell:

https://brilliantlightpower.com/suncell-molten-metal-calorimeter-results/

In addition to highly accurate power balance measurements by the recording the temperature change and water boil off of the water bath calorimeter (August 23rd video), SunCell® power measurements are being performed in molten gallium metal calorimeters. Rather than a water bath for cooling, a pool of 20-50 kg of gallium metal serves as a large heat sink, and the power is recorded by the increase in temperature of the gallium bath that is well mixed by an electromagnetic pump that also serves as a molten metal injector and an electrode of a pair to maintain a unique very low voltage plasma. The uniformity of the temperature is evident in the post-run SunCell® photo. The power is developed as soon as the hydrogen flows into the cell. The theoretical power from conventional chemistry with hydrogen addition is zero. The reaction of atomic hydrogen to hydrino or dark matter form of hydrogen catalyzed by HOH catalyst present in trace is the basis of this extraordinary hydrogen power source. A current result is an output of 120 kW for 25 kW input corresponding to about 100 kW of excess power from the hydrino reaction with no-hydrogen-addition runs showing energy balance (zero excess power).

It’s good to finally see some energy balance reports from BrLP, and these results in terms of COP and volume of power production show an impressive performance. Comparing runs with and without hydrogen is also important and confidence-building in their process.
