BLP SunCell Test to Destruction (Video)

Thanks to Bob Greenyer for posting this video from Brilliant Light Power which I had not seen before. It shows a SunCell being activated by a worker, and very soon a hole in the side is burned through.

This is the BLP’s description of what is shown:

“The SunCell reactor was at 30°C when the reaction was initiated. The reactor comprised boron nitride molten metal reservoirs and a ceramic-coated stainless steel (SS) dome. The molten metal was gallium that was injected with a SS electromagnetic pump injector inside of the reactor to hit the other boron nitride reservoir with pooled gallium that served as the counter electrode. The gas was over-atmospheric argon-H2 of a non-combustible stoichiometry. The source of O to form HOH catalyst was trace gallium oxide. The hydrino reaction caused the pressure and temperature in the SS dome to go vertical. The hydrino reaction can develop explosive power (note that the blow off valve was activated at ignition). The jet was the hydrino plasma that breached the wall that was melted by the heat from the hydrino reaction. The source of power is H2 to molecular hydrino H2(1/4) + 50 MJ catalyzed the HOH catalyst. H2 goes in and H2(1/4) and massive power comes out. The H2 can be obtained from the electrolysis of water using 1/200th the energy released in the reaction of the hydrogen to hydrino.”

You can see before the ignition that the area where the heat is concentrated is already discolored, not sure what that means.

Russian Proatom Article on Changing Attitudes to LENR

Russian website Proatom, which covers news and information connected with the nuclear industry has a featured article titled ”
Industrial power plant on low-threshold nuclear reactions – the reality” written by Vitaly Uzikov, an engineer at the Russian State Scientific Center Research Institute of Atomic Reactors.

The article finds the recent IEEE Spectrum article about LENR to be a significant event, because it takes the field seriously and it is apparently read by 385,000 engineers around the world.

The article is a broad review of significant happenings in the LENR field, discussing such things US Department of Defense involvement in LENR research over the years, and Japanese governmental support of LENR research.

The article also looks forward to the announced commercial presentation of Andre Rossi on January 31, 2019 where Rossi has said that an E-Cat will be shown in operation.

Uzikov chooses to use the term Low Threshold Nuclear Reaction. He writes:

“By the way, the very abbreviation LENR ( Low – Energy Nuclear Reactions ) causes specialists a reasonable rejection, and they suggest calling the observed nuclear phenomena not low-energy , but low-threshold , but the generally accepted term LENR will be used hereinafter if it is not very accurate.”

What could the LENR market be in 2019? (aricimello)

The following has been submitted by aricemello.

What could the LENR market be in 2019? (aricimello)

Andrea Rossi will sell heat only to industrialists and under his strict control.

Is it to repay his creditors all the money he has invested?

Is it to avoid copies of his technology?

BLP seems to be the only one able to provide all forms of energy to a large market …
And to quickly draw something to repay its creditors and self-finance.

Who will win the most, Andrea Rossi, BLP and/or energy consumers?

Rossi Targeted in Forbes Article about Science not being Fake News

This is an indication of what Andrea Rossi may be up against as he prepares for his product launch. The old labels are still being used about him and the E-Cat, and it could be a challenge for him to overcome them.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/startswithabang/2018/11/29/science-is-not-fake-news/#315340fe6f0c

The article is by Astrophysicist Ethan Siegel, published in Forbes, the title of the article is ‘Science is Not Fake News’. Siegel makes the case that non-scientists should trust scientists’ conclusions because they are trained experts working in the scientific discipline using the rigorous methods of scientific research, and non-scientists don’t have the knowledge or expertise to have a contrary opinion on scientific topics.

He does acknowledge that scientists can be in error, stating:

“Most frequently, the consensus position turns out to be correct, and holds up to scrutiny. Most often, contrarians toil in obscurity, and justifiably so, as their ideas are unable to account for the full suite of what’s been observed. We might remember the revolutionary ideas and the times when scientists got it wrong, but those are the exceptions, not the norms. And whenever that comes to pass, the scientific consensus is usually quick to shift.”

As far as Rossi and the E-Cat are concerrned, One of the images shown in the article is of Andrea Rossi showing the E-Cat to Swedish professors Essen and Kullander, with the caption:

“There are, no doubt, charlatans and frauds who would exploit the ignorance and gullibility of others for their own gain, such as convicted fraud Andrea Rossi, shown with his highly-suspect device: the e-Cat.”

I think Siegel’s article overall is quite typical when it comes to the profession of science, and generally speaking, I think most people defer to the wisdom of the scientific establishment when it comes to subjects in which they have little or no training. This is why I think if Andrea Rossi is making a push for public attention, he needs to anticipate that there will be headwinds to face from scientists who are unwilling as yet to consider that the E-Cat could be a valid invention, as this example shows.

IEEE Article: It’s been a Big Year for LENR

Thanks to Bob G. for the tip about this article from the IEEE Spectrum site.

The title is: “Scientists in the U.S. and Japan Get Serious About Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions:
It’s absolutely, definitely, seriously not cold fusion”

https://spectrum.ieee.org/energy/nuclear/scientists-in-the-us-and-japan-get-serious-about-lowenergy-nuclear-reactions

The author, Michael Koziol, points to two events that he finds significant:

This paper from Japanese researchers reporting excess heat production in hydrogen/deuterium loaded nanocomposites.

The publication by the US Naval Institute of this paper titled ‘This is Not Cold Fusion’ by Michael Ravnitsky.

The article considers the Widom-Larsen theory as a viable theoretical explanation for positive LENR results, but acknowledges there might be others.

It’s interesting to see some new attention and interest in LENR here, and also the very firm rejection of ‘cold fusion’, which is a term that I think is getting used less and less by people in the field nowadays.

Concise History of LENR Work in Russia (Synthestech)

Thanks to Bob Greenyer for the tip about this recent blog post from the Synthestech website which provides an overview of notable researchers and results in the field of LENR.

https://blog.synthestech.com/achievements-of-russian-scientists-that-can-change-the-world-from-the-cradle-of-lenr-to-modernity-592bbcbd5207

They start years before Fleischmann and Pons made their announcement below is a summary of what they report:

– According to the article, in the 1950s “Ivan Filimonenko discovered an effect of heat generation in an electrode with palladium additives during electrolysis of heavy water”, and he went on to create a power generator that could operate for 5 years without refueling. He was eventually dismissed from his research position.

– Professor Anatoly Vachaev could create ball lightning and developed a system that could make a self-sustaining plasma which could operate for days without input power.

– In 1976 physicist Mikhail Solin who, when smelting zirconium, observed unusual results:

“The power consumption of the furnace was sharply reduced, and in the central part of the melt a red-hot cone was formed. After that the cone disappeared in the alloy, forming a well similar in shape. This phenomenon was cyclical in character and occurred several times. ”

Solin continued his experimental work but was ultimately shut down by superiors,

– Yuri Bazhutov created a LENR reactor called Fakel-2 that could operate at an efficiency of 700%.

– Alexander Parkhomov has been able to replicate the Rossi Effect, in efforts to replicate Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat.

The article states ” As mentioned above, despite the fact that the method of energy generating was slightly different, absolutely all the researchers, apart from efficiency over 1000%, noticed transmutation of one chemicals into others. Moreover, in powder were found not only particles of gold and platinum, but almost the whole Mendeleev’s Periodic Table with different amounts of obtained substances.”

Synthestech claims that they themselves have developed the “know-how” to repeat the previous achievements in LENR.

Synthestech Claims Creation of Titanium Isotope Not Found in Nature via ‘Cold Nuclear Transmutation’

Thanks to Jas for providing the following link:

https://blog.synthestech.com/proof-of-achievements-in-research-of-synthestech-de8e8a77a4f3

The Russian group Synthestech has analyzed samples of materials which have undergone their ‘Cold Nuclear Transmutation’ processes, and they report results which they say shows changes in the isotopic ratio of individual elements.

They write:

“… Under some processes that we use to carry out Cold Transmutation, we change isotopic ratio of individual elements.

“This concerns, for example, Titan (Ti) — the natural ratio of its isotopes is as follows: 46Ti (8,25 %), 47Ti (7,44 %), 48Ti (73,72 %), 49Ti (5,41 %), 50Ti (5,18 %).

“In our samples, which mass spectrometry analysis card is applied, the ratio differs significantly from the natural one — 46Ti (3,89%), 47Ti (7,29%), 48Ti (76,75%), 49Ti (5,71%), 50Ti (5,75%). As it is evident, the 46Ti isotope is 2 (!!) times less in our sample than the natural one.”

“Such Titan (Ti) is not available in nature, it is impossible to buy or somehow obtain it.”

LENR Reactor Design Concept “QX Replication”

The following comment has been submitted by ‘The Director’.

Gerold.S, a visitor to E-Cat World and a user on LENR Forums, has provided a preliminary 2D drawing of the E-Cat QX. The purpose of this drawing is to provide the information needed for a detailed 3D model that could assist potential replicators. It’s requested that E-Cat World visitors compare the drawing to the image of the QX in the paper written by Rossi and Gullstrom and provide comments on how the drawing can be made more accurate. A wide assortment of issues need to be addressed such as the size, shape, and scale of components, the probable materials utilized, and so forth. Although discussion on other issues are more than welcome (such as the production of emitter tips, the coating of the nickel with platinum, the most optimal power supplies, methods of staying within the abnormal glow discharge regime, etc) the focus should be on making the drawing match the photograph as closely as possible.

All assistance and advice would be appreciated.

Date and Time Set for the ‘Commercial, Not Scientific’ E-Cat Presentation

Andrea Rossi posted today pn the Journal of Nuclear Physics the date and time of the the January Presentation:

Andrea Rossi
November 13, 2018 at 7:51 AM
JPR:
1- the streaming will begin at 9 A.M. US Eastern Time and will last 2 hours
2- the video will remain on youtube and a link will be maintained in our website http://www.leonardocorporation.com or http://www.ecat.com
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Having it early in the morning US time is a good idea, as it allows for daytime viewing in North and South America, Europe and Africa. Our friends in East Asia, and Australasia and the Pacific will have to get up early, or go to bed later.

Regarding the type of presentation this is to be, Rossi has not published details yet, but has written:

Andrea Rossi
November 9, 2018 at 10:38 AM
John C Evans:
Thanks to you for your kind attention to the work of our team.
The aim of the January 31st presentation is not to get a validation. We are presenting a service that is based on an industrial production, not on a prototype that needs to be validated. The goal of the presentation is commercial, not scientific and has to be object of clear distinction from a work of R&D, that we continue to do, and of theoretical study, that we continue to do.
We are prepared to answer the questions we will receive: any kind of questions.
Warm Regards,
A.R.
