Default Low cost energy for all

This LENR breakthrough is looking more and more like real science.
Cold fusion: smoke and mirrors, or raising a head of steam? (Wired UK)
Yet Another Successful LENR Device Enters the Race
http://www.cnbc.com/id/48615362/Is_C..._by_Scientists
LENR appears to be gathering steam

I have some nickle powder, plenty of nichrome, and will be getting a cylinder of Hydrogen or deuterium to do some experiments.
Looks like humans have another chance to get it right.
This would be a drop in replacement for any steam based electrical generating system, be it coal or nuclear, or a supertanker power plant.
Finally some good news.

Hmm it's not 1st April is it?

Doesn't look incredibly convincing quite yet.

They are adding hydrogen?

I wonder if that's included in their energy balance (we put in 50 watts, got out 60 watts!).

I read about this guy with the E-CAT before, and everything about it (closed box, mysterious contracts that can't be named, etc) all smacks of smoke and mirrors. Likewise these demonstrations where they say "watch it run" to a room full of people... that is not how science happens. "Look, it's still running" is not data.

They should have measurements with a calorimeter with all inputs/outputs recorded, along with neutron flux! You get no neutrons in your "fusion," you got no fusion. They should chart this, along with all the info needed to duplicate their apparatus, publish, and then various others can confirm.

THAT is how science is done. This all seems like a big scam show as yet. If not, they've handled it very poorly.

Peter
Be sure to look for the latest articles as the breakthrough came only a few months ago when a working theory that did not require new Physics to explain.
The short version :
the hydrogen saturates the metal lattice, and when the packing factor gets high enough the process of transmutation of Nickle to copper proceeds over a wide area, the high packing forces break through the weak neuclear force, and the metal sucks an electron from the hydrogen with the release of energy after absorbson by the metal is mostly in the IR range of the spectrum, or plain old heat.

the physics is real, the experiments are repeatable, and they have a working theory using standard physics. National Instruments (Labview), Mitsubishi , and many other big players have new or expanded research programs

LENR-CANR.org ? A library of papers about cold fusion
bet we hear from the government before the election, as NASA and other national labs have already published positive results

MIT has a open running demo
LENR Resurrected by MIT – The Early Detractors
cryptogon.com MIT Professor Has Been Running LENR Device Outputting Excess Heat That’s 14X Input Power Since January
MIT LENR device publicly running for 6 months but Mainstream Researchers Still Able Block Funding

Race for cold fusion: Nasa, MIT, Darpa and Cern peer through the keyhole (Wired UK)

IMHO this is real and will be a game changer in the next few years.
The big breakthrough came when some new theories were developed to explain the confirming results that hundreds of labs have been having.
Low Energy Nuclear Reactions, the Realism and the Outlook by Dennis Bushnell
One of the first companies devoted to exploiting the physics
Lewis larsen, President and ceo at Lattice energy llc | SlideShare
New Energy Times - Widom-Larsen Theory Portal

So skeptics be ready to be convinced, and we can all get some hope about a brighter future.

I'm happy to be convinced by a decent pool of evidence.

I hope you are right Mike for all our sakes.

We shall see in next five years or so.

That will be quite convincing.

One can generate the hydrogen from water or heavy water through electrolysis, llike Stanley and Pons did in the original experiments.
