The third parties in the Rossi v. Industrial Heat case have filed a joint Motion to Dismiss counterclaims III, IV and Vthat Industrial Heat have filed against them. These parties are J.M. Products, Inc., Henry Johnson, James A. Bass, United States Quan...
We mentioned recently here that Andrea Rossi is focusing hard on obtaining a 5 Sigma rating for his Quark X reactor (5 Sigma in physics being a probability that an event happening the same way every time is 99.9999%). It seem now that there is a very practical reason for striving to reach this goal: […]
La necessita’ di trovare una soluzione al problema climatico/ambientale ed energetico e’ sempre piu’ pressante, ed ormai nel mondo sono molti gli scienziati e le industrie che dedicano le loro energie (e le loro risorse economiche) a...
A team at Oak Ridge National Laboratory reports a technological breakthrough that could have an impact on some of the most perplexing environmental and energy issues of our day — how to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, how to reduce reliance on fossil fuels, and coming up with an efficient method […]
A video from the ICCF20 conference in Sendai, Japan has been uploaded to YouTube of a presentation Michael Halem of LENR-Invest, LLC, reporting on his experience trying to validate the Brillouin Hydrogen Hot Tube (HHT) in an experiment carried out at SRI headquarters in Berkeley, California. His goal was to find out if the HHT […]
Some new document has been published in the court case. One is an “ORDER granting Motion for Protective Order. Signed by Magistrate Judge John J.

Germany might become the first of the major powers to abolish use of the internal combustion engine. The Bundesrat; an upper house of Germany’s parliament that represents state governments recommended that the country get rid of diesel and gasoline-powered vehicles by 2030. The action is not binding but it is surprising and important because Germany [...]
Roger Shawyer, the British inventor of the EmDrive, a exhaust-less thruster, has been interviewed by the IB Times. There is an article, with two videos at this link http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/emdrive-exclusive-roger-shawyer-confirms-mod-dod-interested-controversial-space-propulsion-tech-1586392 Here are some notes I took from watching the interview with Shawyer. Eric Laithwaite claimed that a gyroscope could be used as a thruster. This got […]
