“Proof the SUN is Condensed Matter and is Enveloped with EVOs” (MFMP Video)

Bob Greenyer of the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project has posted a new video on YouTube titled “Proof the SUN is condensed matter and is enveloped with EVOs”.

In the video he compares images of the John Hutchison ‘Fracture’ sample, the LION 2 ‘Force Shield’ and images recently taken of the surface of the sun by the Swedish Academy of Sciences, and he points out similarities in all the structures.

In one of the slides titled Implications, Bob gives the following conclusions:

– The sun IS NOT a ball of gas.
– As in LENR, elements heavier than Fe can be synthesized by the sun
– Therefore, no need for big bang or supernova to make heavy elements
– Experiments done by such persons as Tesla, Hutchison, Shoulders, Fleischmann/Pons, Piantelli, Matsumoto, Celani, Adamenko, Ralkar, Parkhomov and LION and many more have been replicating what the sun does, in free air in some cases for over 100 years.
– We can study how the sun really works for a few 100 dollars

Researchers Create Self-Charging Battery

Thanks to sandy_r for posting to a report on the Scitechdaily website about a paper from Applied Physics Reviews in which researchers have found a way for a battery to self-charge.


From the article:

Researchers use a ferroelectric glass electrolyte within an electrochemical cell to create simple self-charging batteries.

A new type of battery combines negative capacitance and negative resistance within the same cell, allowing the cell to self-charge without losing energy, which has important implications for long-term storage and improved output power for batteries.


The paper from Applied Physics Review can be accessed here:


“Performance of a ferroelectric glass electrolyte in a self-charging electrochemical cell with negative capacitance and resistance” by M.H. Braga, J.E. Oliveira, A.J. Murchison and J.B. Goodenough, 25 February 2020, Applied Physics Reviews.
DOI: 10.1063/1.5132841

From the abstract of this paper:


The ability for electrochemical cells to self-charge for extended periods of time is desirable for energy storage applications. While self-oscillation is a phenomenon found in human-made dynamic systems and in nature, its appearance in electrochemical cells has not been reported or anticipated. Here, we chose an electrochemical cell containing two electrodes separated by a self-organizing glass electrolyte containing alkali cations. The ferroelectric character of the electrolyte, with an impressively high dielectric constant of 106–107, supported self-charge and self-oscillation. After fabrication, the cells were characterized to determine the electrical impedance, dielectric spectroscopy, and electrochemical discharge. The electrochemical cells also displayed negative resistance and negative capacitance. Negative capacitance is due to the formation of an inverted capacitor between the double-layer capacitor formed at the negative electrode/electrolyte interface and the dipoles of the ferroelectric-electrolyte. Negative resistance is triggered by the formation of an interface phase, which leads to a step-change of the chemical potential of the electrode.

Rossi: “Almost” Ready for Third Party Testing

Here is a Q&A from the Journal of Nuclear Physics today which gives an update about the current status of the E-Cat SKL testing.

February 24, 2020 at 1:42 PM
Dear Dr. Rossi!
Good that you returned optimist.

If I may ask:
1. Do you think the Ecat SKL is now ready for third party testing?
2. Have you fixed a date for the beginning of third party tests?
3. Are the third party test already running?


Andrea Rossi
February 24, 2020 at 3:30 PM
1- almost
2- yes
3- no
Warm Regards,

I think that this exchange confirms that the reliability problems with the E-Cat SKL that Rossi had previously reported forced them to put on hold the third party testing that was originally scheduled to begin in January. Until now Rossi has not confirmed or denied that third party testing had started, only that it was expected to conclude in March.

We won’t see any presentation until the third party testing is over, so I would expect that we are now looking at an April presentation at the earliest.

In another comment, Rossi told JONP reader KeithT that it was “not necessary” to wait for further patents to be awarded before a commercial roll out of the E-Cat SKL, because as he stated, “our IP is well protected”.

Australian Fusion Company HB11 Reports Breakthrough Fusion Process (‘Laser Boron Fusion’)

Thanks  to a number of readers who have contacted me a news article from the New Atlas website (first posted on the Always On thread by sandy r) which reports about a claim by an Australian company HB11 who claim to have found a new approach to nuclear fusion they call ‘Laser Boron Fusion’ which they claim is producing reaction rates “a billion times higher than predicted” in experiments.

The company states that its first patents have been granted in the USA, Japan and China, with other countries pending.


A quote from the article:

Here’s how HB11 describes its “deceptively simple” approach: the design is “a largely empty metal sphere, where a modestly sized HB11 fuel pellet is held in the center, with apertures on different sides for the two lasers. One laser establishes the magnetic containment field for the plasma and the second laser triggers the ‘avalanche’ fusion chain reaction. The alpha particles generated by the reaction would create an electrical flow that can be channeled almost directly into an existing power grid with no need for a heat exchanger or steam turbine generator.”

The HB11 website gives a simple explanation about how the reactions take place:

1. Plasma block acceleration. CPA-laser pulse accelerates plasma blocks e.g. H towards B with a nonlinear force. The H B-11 reaction is ignited.

2. Avalanche of H-B11 reactions increases the reaction yield dramatically, opening up the possibility of net-energy gain.

3. Magnetic trapping from a second laser further increases reaction yield.

4. Electricity is generated by neutralizing charged He (α particles) by the reaction sphere.

Rossi on ‘Risks’ of Open Source

A reader (‘Physics Fan’)on the Journal of Nuclear Physics today suggested, as others have done in the past, that Andrea Rossi share everything he knows about his E-Cat technology rather than keeping secrets. Physics Fan believed Rossi would easily win a Nobel prize if he were to do this, and asked “Are you in it for money or for the science? If you are in it for the science, your approach “sucks”, to be brutally honest”.

Rossi made this response:

Andrea Rossi
February 22, 2020 at 5:05 AM
Physics Fan:
Thank you for your opinion.
I want this technology developed by important concerns and nobody would put money without an intellectual property. Also medicines are essential for surviving any kind of illness, but without intellectual property most of medicines would not have been invented and developed and would not be invented and developed.
Your amateurish approach does not help real and necessary investments from serious professionals, if we want really to have a worldwide diffusion of this technology.
Not to mention the risks that an open source would generate and that every intelligent person can imagine.
Warm Regards,

Rossi has always stated that he does not believe serious investment in the E-Cat would take place if all its secrets were made public. But here, in addition to that argument, Rossi bring up the issue of ‘risks that an open source would generate’, which I am not sure he is referring to (of course admitting that I might not be an intelligent person!)

In other comments, Rossi stated today that the E-Cat SKL is now operating ‘very well’. Gerard McEk asked Rossi if that meant that there would be a presentation in March. He replied, “premature, but I am sure we will make a presentation, soon.”

Why Does the LENR Reaction Stabilize Radioactive Isotopes Instantly? (Axil Axil)

The following comment was posted by Axil Axil.

Why does the LENR reaction stabilize radioactive isotopes instantly?



Single elementary particles created today must be the same in every respect as those created eons ago during the “Big Bang”. The conservation requirement of elementary particle invariance constrains the mechanism of weak force single particle creation and transformation. Weak force transformations recreate primordial “symmetric energy states” of the “Big Bang” force-unification eras (in the case of the “W” IVB (Intermediate Vector Boson), the electroweak force unification era) to accomplish the invariant creation and transformation of single elementary particles. Massive IVBs are employed not only because they can be quantized to exactly recreate the energy-density of the required symmetric-energy state, but because massive particles are unaffected by the entropic expansion of spacetime, however great.

The W+, W-, and W (neutral) (or Z neutral) are the “Intermediate Vector Bosons” (IVBs – “field vectors” or force-carriers) of the weak force. The weak force IVBs are unusual in that they are very massive bosons, whereas all other field vectors are massless. The mass of the IVBs is why they are called “intermediate” vector bosons. The great mass of the IVBs is used to recreate the primordial conditions of the “Big Bang” in which the reactions they now mediate first took place. Such extreme measures are necessary because single elementary particles created today must be the same in all respects as those created eons ago in the “Big Bang”. Only the weak force is capable of creating single elementary particles rather than particle-antiparticle pairs derived from electromagnetic energy.


As a general proposition, because the IVBs needs so much energy to form, on the average, it takes a long time for that energy to be gathered from the vacuum. Because what happens in the vacuum is random, it boils down to a case of probability. Consider how long it would take to flip a coin to get 100 heads in a row. Generating virtual particles from the vacuum is a random process. The more unlikely the particle is to form, the longer it takes to form. If a person bets on the lottery everyday, consider how long it will take a person to win the lottery. On the average, because the IVBs are so massive, the speed of radioactive decay is limited by the energy requirements of the IVB to form. As a posit, the more energy that the vacuum fields contain, the faster that virtual particles will form.

The EVO is a bubble or defect in the vacuum that has a different nature from the true vacuum that permeates space/time. This bubble is called a false vacuum. Inside the EVO, there exists a huge amount of stored energy that can be used to form IVBs instantly. During its lifetime, an EVO can grow to store 100s of gigavolts of energy as it feeds. When an unstable radioactive isotope forms during transmutation,the isotope immediately catalyzes IVBs to stabilize it. There is no lack of energy inside the EVO to instantly form as many IVBs as is required to instantly stabilize an unstable radioactive isotope.

Unlike the limited energy store available in the vacuum, this huge store of energy inside an EVO that is available to action IVB formation is the reason why no radioactive reaction products are seen during and after transmutation.

New Paper: “Enhancement of Excess Thermal Power in Interaction of Nano-Metal and H(D)-Gas” (Takahashi et al.)

A new paper has been posted on the ResearchGate website by a Japanese team led by Akito Takahashi, (Professor Emeritus, Osaka University) reporting successful production of excess heat from nano-metal and hydrogen/deuterium gas experimental systems.

The authors describe the effect simply as an ‘anomalous heat effect’ (AHE)

Title of the article: “Enhancement of Excess Thermal Power in Interaction of Nano-Metal and H(D)-Gas”

Authors: Akito Takahashi, Toyoshi Yokose, Yutaka Mori, Akira Taniike, Yuichi Furuyama, Hiroyuki Ido, Atsushi Hattori, Reiko Seto, Joji Hachisuka

Link: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/339325055_Enhancement_of_Excess_Thermal_Power_in_Interaction_of_Nano-Metal_and_HD-Gas

From the abstract:

“Significant enhancement of excess thermal power by the anomalous heat effect (AHE) has been attained by our latest experiments on interaction of binary nano-composite metal powders and H (or D) gas at elevated temperature of 300-400 °C. Observed excess thermal power levels in average were 10, 86 and 186 W/kg-sample for PNZ10, PNZ10r and PNZ10rr, respectively with deuterium-gas. In addition, levels in average were 11, 117 and 226 W/kg-sample for CNZ7, CNZ7r and CNZ7rr, respectively with light hydrogen gas. Generation of excess thermal power was very reproducible by week cycle runs of heating power on/off mode, and was steady for several days in each elevated temperature run.”

From the conclusion:

“Excess thermal power reached at the level of 200 W/kgsample continuing for several weeks or more, by the elevated temperature interaction of either Dgas or H-gas and Ni-based binary nano-composite powders supported in zirconia flakes. Further extension study towards application of industrial clean portable primary thermal energy source is encouraging.”

SAFIRE Team to Present at Electric Universe Conference in Portland, Oregon June 2020

Thanks to John O for sending me a link to the EU2020 Vision conference sponsored by the Thunderbolts Project that will be held in Portland, Oregon later this year on June 4-7.

The description of the conference from the Thunderbolts Project conference website here:

EU2020 – Homepage

EU2020:VISION will not just challenge today’s most popular scientific assumptions, it will highlight the greatest misunderstanding of all—the claim that highly energetic events across the cosmos can be understood through the action of gravity alone.

By seeing past that misinterpretation, the pioneers of the Electric Universe are moving the space sciences into new frontiers of discovery. After more than a century of laboratory experiments with electric fields and electric discharge, our electrical theorists asked the critical question: could the Sun be the local focus of galactic electric currents, with sufficient potential to explain why the Sun shines? Recently, that question was substantially answered by the independent SAFIRE Project, confirming the electrical attributes of the Sun.

Keynote speakers will be Montgomery Childs and Michael Claridge of the SAFIRE Project who will give a presentation at 8:00 p.m. on Thursday June 4th titled, “SAFIRE Project — What Now?”

The full conference schedule can be seen here: https://www.thunderbolts.info/wp/2019/10/13/eu2020-schedule/

“MFMP Hutchison Effect Sample ‘Fracture’ – EVO Witness Marks” (Video)

The Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project has published a new video in which Bob Greenyer shows some new images he has captured from a sample called ‘Fracture’ which was provided by John Hutchison, in which he discusses marks of possible action of EVOs (Exotic Vacuum Objects)on the surface of the sample in ‘donut’ shapes.

Bob’s description from the YouTube video description:

A range of EVO strike marks in unprecedented detail were found on MFMP ‘Fracture’ Hutchison Sample 4 at the classic sizes observed by Nardi/Bostick, Shoulders, Matsumoto and other authors.

A Display for Our State Fair (Gregory Daigle)

The following post has been submitted by Gregory Daigle.

Last year I made a proposal to our Minnesota state fair to create an exhibit on LENR. This year I will be proposing a free-standing exhibit again and I would like to get feedback from E-Cat contributors.

Here is the current design:

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and Dept. of Commerce have sponsored the Eco Experience building at the state fair since 2006. It is the largest state fair in the United States by average daily attendance and runs from August 27 through September 7. Approximately 270,000 people visit the building over the 12 days of the fair. The goal is to showcase Minnesota carbon reduction and climate mitigation/resiliency/adaptation stories.

I’ve designed a free-standing 5-panel display as part of our proposal. Messaging on panels cover the topics:
Distributed Energy
About the Heat
SK Leonardo
LENR in vehicles

Four of the five panels will include interactive apps on tablets as follows:

Panel 1: A slide-burst of resources given as URLs and QR code
Panel 2: Interactive software showing how many solar panels it would take to equal the energy of an SK or similar LENR generator of heat
Panel 4: Drag and drop interaction comparing the energy and power of other fuels compared to that of nuclear and LENR.
Panel 5: Interaction showing how the driving range decreases and energy consumption increases for EVs when you heat the passenger compartment of a vehicle.

Panel 3 may display a component of a LENR device (hopefully, an SK or SKL component).

Messaging of the display panels should be simple, and what you see on the current design is preliminary and may need correction or updating.
Some easy-to-understand statements on the panels would be helpful. Some statements that are kid-friendly would be nice.

For example, I’d like to know:
How many grams of nickel in an SK or SKL charge?
How many nickels (the coin) would that represent?
Other easy to comprehend comparisons addressing input or output of E-Cats
Also, any additional ideas as to what would make for interesting software interactions would be appreciated.

My biggest challenge will be that submissions are due March 6, and will be selected by March 20. These dates are likely before Rossi’s next presentation, and possibly even before the end of the testing of the SKL. Without a product introduction or clear public support by corporate partners, it is unlikely that the committee evaluating exhibits will consider the technology to be sufficiently proven (this is the reason it was rejected last year).

Hopefully, a significant presentation made by Rossi in late March or April will change their minds and I can advocate for either:
1. Reconsideration of the exhibit, or,
2. As a pop up display to be shown for only a few days of the fair.
