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:

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.

 

Ecalox Turning Scrap Aluminum into Hydrogen and Aluminum Oxide

An article has been published on the British Institute of Engineering and Technology website about a company called Ecalox run by Alan Smith — who is also an admin at LENR Forum — which has developed a system to convert scrap aluminum into hydrogen and aluminum oxide in a facility in Essex, England.

The article provides a good written explanation of the Ecalox process, along with excellent photos showing the technologies involved. It is available here:

https://eandt.theiet.org/content/articles/2019/08/silver-science-creates-diy-zero-carbon-aluminium-hydroxide-reactor-in-a-farm-shed/

With $500 to $600-worth of aluminium scrap, Smith reckons his reactor could squeeze out $1,500-worth in aluminium oxide, plus all the energy it produces, he says.

The catalyst for the hydrogen-water reactor is fully recoverable, and is said to be an inexpensive material but kept a business secret for now, though it is certainly traceable in public scientific literature, Smith admits.

Alan’s goals are to develop a business operation with just a small portion of the scrap aluminum market: ““If we only get a tenth of the landfilled post-consumer aluminium waste we would be able to process 50,000 tonnes a year, sell almost 100,000 tonnes of aluminium hydroxide and create a 400,000MW energy business on the back of it.”

Thunderbolts Project: “The SAFIRE Results Now Proves Cosmologists and Particle Physicists Don’t Understand Stars”

Thanks to Bob Greenyer for linking to this video from the Thunderbolts Project YouTube channel discussing an alternative to the conventional theory based on Sir Arthur Eddington’s assumption that the sun and stars are gravitating balls of hydrogen gas.

The alternative theory discussed on this video is the Electric Sun video where it is proposed that the sun “is plugged into a galactic circuit, and galactic circuits are the basis of plasma cosmology.”

In this video Wal Thornhill, chief science advisor to the Thunderbolts project, discusses the results of the recent presentation by the SAFIRE project.

Thornhill explains that the SAFIRE project is funded by the International Science Foundation. He states, “The SAFIRE results now proves cosmologists and particle physicists don’t understand stars”

US Military Acknowledges Reality of ‘Unidentified Aerial Phenomena’

There has been an interesting comment posted on The Black Vault webstite from the US military about videos that were released by To The Stars Academy last year

U.S. Navy Confirms Videos Depict ‘Unidentified Aerial Phenomena’; Not Cleared For Public Release

“The Navy designates the objects contained in these videos as unidentified aerial phenomena,” said Joseph Gradisher, official spokesperson for the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Warfare. When asked why the phrase “UAP” is now utilized by the U.S. Navy, and not “UFO,” Mr. Gradisher added, “The ‘Unidentified Aerial Phenomena’ terminology is used because it provides the basic descriptor for the sightings/observations of unauthorized/unidentified aircraft/objects that have been observed entering/operating in the airspace of various military-controlled training ranges.”

Joseph Gradisher also stated that the Navy did not authorize the videos for public release, implying that the release by To The Stars Academy member and former Pentagon official Lou Elizondo was unauthorized. Below are some clips of Elizondo discussing the videos.

If the US Military really does not know what these objects are, and how they do what they do, then we are looking at something very mysterious. One reason I have taken advanced energy technologies such as LENR/Cold Fusion seriously is because it seems obvious to me from countless witness testimony about strange craft doing seemingly impossible things, that in fact these things are not impossible at all. It’s just that humankind in general simply doesn’t have a full understanding of the possibilities that nature affords.

ICCF-22 Conference Thread

Thanks to Teppo for the suggestion for this thread — good idea!

The 22nd International Conference on Condensed Matter Nuclear Science ICCF-22 is meeting this week, September 8-13, 2019 in Assisi, Italy.

The official site for the conference is here:

https://iscmns.org/iccf22 

The program is here:

https://iscmns.org/iccf22/program

It looks like a very interesting week of presentations, and I hope that there might be some significant news from the conference. I know that Alan Smith of LENR Forum is attending, and I expect he will be posting some updates there. Ruby Carat of Cold Fusion Now will also be there and said she would be recording sessions and providing news.

I am not sure if any ECW readers will be at the conference, but if they are they are most welcome to provide news and comments here.

Replicators Workshop: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/203789

Overview: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/202724

=======Sector67 “Workshop”===========

LENR — Low Energy Nuclear Reactions — may provide the world with limitless, inexpensive, carbon-free energy. Once called “Cold Fusion” and debunked as “Junk Science”, LENR has recently become a hot topic. Recently, Google invested $10Million in an MIT Lab attempting duplication. The Department of Defense and US Government has patented several devices, one of which is being commercialized by Global Energy Corporation, a spin-off of DoD Researchers. NASA has ordered a compact Fission/Fusion reactor based on LENR technology. LENR has now progressed from fiction to fact as a number of scientists and engineers around the world work on the technology.

A number of organizations around the world are attempting to duplicate LENR reactions. Bob Greenyer, a volunteer with the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project, has studied many of the approaches and will be available to talk about the details of replication. Bob has either been a direct part of replication efforts, or has visited replicators around the world. Come and join a discussion with Bob on replication efforts. His in-depth knowledge of the technology can help replication efforts get a fast start. Here are some of the efforts he has been involved with:

Dog-Bone: A MFMP replication effort to duplicate Andrea Rossi’s Lugano LENR Reactor.
LION: An independent replication of a nickel-diamond deuterium fueled reactor.
LION-2: A duplicate of the LION Reactor.
Parkhomov: A Russian Research Lab’s replication of Andrea Rossi’s reactor.
Suhas Relkar: A High Power Ultrasonic/Electrical Discharge LENR fueled reactor.
OHMASA Gas: A Japanese Researcher’s LENR Charge-Cluster generator exhibiting LENR reaction signatures.
Mizuno: A Nickel-Deuterium Reactor with detailed plans available.

Independent Assessors Mark Down Woodford Fund Based on Industrial Heat Stake

An article on the Yahoo UK Finance website today reports how Woodford Investment Management’s Woodford Patient Capital Trust fund has been devalued by independent assessors after they had written down the value of its stake in Industrial Heat. The overall valuation of the fund was reduced by around £30m.

From the article: “The board of the Woodford Patient Capital trust said in July that it was considering removing Woodford as manager of the trust and was holding conversations with other money managers.”

https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/neil-woodford-woodford-patient-capital-industrial-heat-write-down-080746342.html

Since Industrial Heat has reportedly been largely invested in LENR/CF research, this is not a very good reflection on the field in terms of its commercial potential.
