> one of those pencil-sized QuarkX that Rossi said

May I propose you a bridge to buy?

For a price of a beer?

Someone explained how the Rossi's E-Cat is supposed to work, I am not sure this makes sense to anyone, but it seems to point out to the fact that it is a Nano Tech process:


People seem to be having a hard time visualizing what is actually happening in an E-Cat. Allow me to put forth this visual model in order to clarify the “inner workings” of the E-cat.

Consider a standard kitchen blender with a glass carafe.

Like most blenders, the lid has a small plug which can be removed for adding ingredients during operation. Around the hole for the plug there is a small flat lip.

Now, imagine this:
1. Remove the plug, and balance a few steel ball bearings on the lip around the hole.

2. Turn on the blender, just on low to start with, but SLOWLY increase the blender until it is up to “High”.
Take a moment to look at it. The blades are whirling around at high RPM and the ball bearings are jiggling around from the vibration, teetering around the edge of the lip.

3. Now, WHACK the blender with a rolling pin!

What happens?

The ball bearings fall from the lip and into the fast spinning blades below, and are sent smashing through the glass of the carafe, shattering it into pieces!

In this visual aid, the blender blades are Nickel atoms, the ball bearings are Hydrogen Ions liberated from the Lithium-Aluminum-Hydride and the glass carafe is the web of Lithium Atoms mixed throughout.

Heating the mixture to just short of the melting point of the nickel, and pumping up the electron shells about the nickel nuclei is represented by the power of the high speed blades.

Whacking the blender with a rolling pin is identical to sending an Electromagnetic Pulse through the energized e-cat reactor vessel. Deformation of the electron shells causes the capture and eventual disassembly of hydrogen ions within the maelstrom of the electron shell energy fields resulting in the energetic expulsion of suddenly solitary protons.

These ejected protons then collide with lithium atoms and transmutate Lithium 7 to Beryllium 8, which promptly decay to two Alpha – which consequently gain electrons to become Helium atoms.
The process of the forced decay of Lithium to Helium – resulting in a large energy release – is well documented, and was the first nuclear fission process ever demonstrated. [see Cockcroft-Walton; 1932]

The genius of the e-cat is in its application of the primary LENR process (proton liberation from an energized nickel-hydride) to effectively utilize individual Nickel atoms as sub-Nano scale proton accelerators.

Indeed, this invention should be rightly considered a breakthrough in Nano-Tech Engineering, as the apparatus is, in fact, mechanical in nature rather than chemical or nuclear.

This process does not involve molecular interactions and formations (other than the Hydride fuel supplement), so this exhibit cannot be called “chemical” in nature. And, while we see Helium being produced while Hydrogen is consumed, this clearly is not “Fusion”, as it is a sequence going through Lithium and then DOWN to Helium. Now, in modern terms, the breakdown of Beryllium is a “decay” into Alpha particles as radiation, so this clearly does not qualify as fission under current models.

So, the E-Cat is neither CHEMICAL, FISSION nor FUSION. It is a Nano-Tech MACHINE.

On blender analogy
And I thought that nano is so five years ago.

Has anybody seen this presentation?
www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kxryv2XrnqM

It's nearly one hour, so one of the important points is, that transmission and distribution are not that cheap (the guy calls it for whatever reason "GOD parity").

You can build a working fusion reactor producing free energy, but cost of transmission (1 cent/kWh or more, of course distance-dependent) and distribution (2-3 cent/kWh) will it make more expensive than local PV (plus battery?) in just a few years.

I recently checked most of the numbers in the presentation. They are sometimes a little bit on the optimistic side, but basically solid.

Here is a new kid on the block (not really as they have been around for a while):

Brilliant Light Power

this is not LENR, technically speaking, however checkout the videos and the documentation and the validation reports for their "SUNCELL".

They say they may commercialize it in 2017... if it works, this is quite interesting.

Sigh,
Let me google for you

The shit was promised back in 2005.

I like to pretend that somewhere on the Internet there's a particle physics forum, with a 5 page thread of random speculation about Fibonacci charts and dollar cost averaging.

No, but physicists often think they know a lot about climate modelling.

well there is EconoPhysics which is the exact juxtaposition for NuclearPhynance.

Econophysics belongs to subculture. Worst word ever invented. "Oikos" and "nomos" are the greek roots of economy, not some unheard of "oikonos".

Well, well, well
I may still loose the bet
Although, not with Rossi's help.

PJ, you have chosen the worst possible place to look at, new energy times run by Steven Krivit it's not a reliable source, they are skeptopathic trash.

Anyway, I am going to concede that you will lose the bet, and I also will also somehow lose, this is why:

Industrial Heat has broken up with Rossi for one single reason: there is a new player in the market called Brilliant Light Power that has developed a working device for producing energy that could become a valid alternative to many other energy sources, in the long term, if it works.

Here is CNN recently speaking about it:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siHCRp7TpoU

Industrial Heat knew about this, in fact it was pretty public, everybody knew about it, but until recently it wasn't advanced enough to get to market (apparently it is, now).

When Industrial Heat took a bet on Rossi, they were hoping Rossi would deliver his LENR product in time, before Brilliant Light Power was ready to go with its product into the market.

This explains also why Woodford Investment put tens of millions in it: there was a bet based on some understanding of the product under development, but it was a bet: you can bet LONG on Gold but you don't know for sure if it will go up and make you money.

It appears Rossi did not make it in time, too much stuff still unresolved in its LENR reactor, while Brilliant Light Power managed to reach the finish line.

At that point, Industrial Heat realized that there was no more game, or anyway it was not worth it to put a 90M USD bet on Rossi to create a product against a competitor that is ready for market distribution. Maybe Industrial Heat thinks they can re-license Rossi's product at a lower fee going through a court lawsuit. Whatever, I don't care.

The only thing I care, at this point, is to see if the Brilliant Light Power product reaches the market and becomes a viable alternative to fossil fuels - if it does, a lot of portfolios will need to be readjusted and this was the origin of my question at the start of this thread, and the reason why I brought all this up.

And they are so totally different from that ex-con.
Ok.
Shall we fix the date?
Say
February 16th 2018?

As it is a start of the dog year.

Hydrino? Sounds familiar.

So.... where do I find the ETF?

Salut toi, je vais au Social Club avec des amis ce soir, c'est au 142 rue Montmartre. J'ai mis ta robe préférée. Viens me trouver.

Not quite particle physics, but check HackerNews each time an article about investments, hedge funds, etc. comes up, and you'll probably get the same feeling physicists would get reading this thread.

The gift that keeps on giving: I just received an invitation to invest in some sort of LENR electrostatic trap scheme from someone using a gmail account. I'm not sure which aspect is more suspicious, the physics claims or the use of a gmail account for capital raising. As if...

I keep posting relevant stuff when it comes up:

Session 3
M. Nakamura (Nissan Motor Co., Ltd)
Expectations on the new heat-generation-reaction between metal and hydrogen
mas-nakamura [little snail] mail.nissan.co.jp

Excerpt:
"In 2010, A. Rossi reported E-cat, Energy Catalyzer. This equipment can generate heat energy
from Ni and H2 reaction and the energy is larger than input one. This experiment was replicated by
A Parkhomov but the reaction mechanism has NOT been clarified [1-2]. If we can use this heat
energy as a heater application into EV, the problem of short mileage caused by using heater will be
solved, the EV with this equipment will be a candidate for customers who have a sense of
dissatisfaction that they should charge very often.
In this report we will report 2 things. The first one is the experimental results regarding to
reproducing Parkhomov’s experiment with some disclosing experimental conditions using
Differential Scanning Calorimetry (STA-PT1600, Linseis Inc.). This DSC can measure generated
heat within a tolerance of 2%. The second one is our expectation on this reaction for automotive
potential.
[1] A.G. Parkhomov; International Journal of Unconventional Science issue 7(3), pp. 68-72, 2015
[2] A.G. Parkhomov; International Journal of Unconventional Science issue 8(3), pp. 34-38, 2015"

In summary:
Nissan is taking an active interest in LENR as a means of developing electronic vehicles, and also they have worked on reproducing Alexander Parkhomov’s work and will be presenting some experimental results.

Now we will wait for PJ's usual question: "Who is Alexander Parkhomov?".

I have no idea.
