MFMP Prepares for New Test With New Calorimeter

It’s good to see that the folks involved with the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project are continuing to put lots of work into their open science project with the aim to conclusively demonstrate LENR. I keep my eye on their activities and was interested in their most recent test run of the 1.1 cell which showed some promising data. The cell was showing a consistent excess power production of between 3 and 5 watts over a period of many days.

I was told, however, that the team was not fully satisfied with the setup of that that test — too many variables were at play, which raised questions about the validity of the results reported. A new test run is in the works in which, as I understand it, the test cell will be placed inside a new “concentric tube calorimeter” which is designed to maintain a constant temperature environment so that the measurement of heat produced by the test cell can be measured more accurately.

A video showing the design and operation of the calorimeter is shown below.

The latest activities of the MFMP are explained in this blog post.

    ALERT !

    George Miley and his project are in 2d position on Future Energy.
    The SmartPwrNet project has received a lot of votes at once.

      I know. What can be done?

      How do you handle voting irregularities?

      We reserve the right to disqualify any team or any vote for any reason at any time. These reasons include, but are not limited to, computer-automated voting, use of bulk email addresses, and use of email addresses not associated with a real person.

      email to request an investigation of SmartPwrNet votes.

        I’ve sent an e – mail to that effect.

      something is up with that no way they got all those votes that quick and look at the facebook likes on page it is only 22. Something is up with that.

      This is totally suspect.
      This morning, in Europe (GMT+01:00), the project was at the 4th or 5th position with a number of votes less then 200.
      I’ll send also an e-mail to UltraligthStartup to request an investigation.

        Although this looks suspect, may I remind you all that last time we did something similar for Miley, going from 18 votes to 347 votes within 24 hours.

        • cx

          I think we would have seen more facebooks likes. It only has 22 im sure more would have tried to share it on FB. But I guess we will see if they investigate.

          • Gerrit

            that is true

        • Groupir

          Are you sure ? Anyway, this is normal : Miley’s project is much more interesting 🙂

          • Gerrit

            What is even more suspect is that the voting suddenly seem to have stopped at 693.

            Now the photovoltaics projects is trying to kick us out of the top 2.

          • Maybe there is someone who don’t want to see a LENR presentation at a MIT event?

      • And now they got for more than 30 min. not just one vote!
        Looks very mysterious…

        Now where they have some buffer to the next competitor, they seem to stopped their voting-bot…

        • Gerrit

          yes I noticed this too

        • Gerrit

          yes they have switched of their bot. The are still at 693 votes.

    • Groupir

      Investigation request sent.

  • Dear All,

    A wishful thought (but that is what we are good at here);

    What if Dr. Arun Majumdar, please have a look at the first link;

    and Astro Teller, both working at Google, have something to do with the testing of the E-cat and will announce results in a few weeks time as pointed out in the second link.

    That is fuel for some (day) dreaming, right?

    Cheers,

    • Interesting!
      But Rossi said the big partner is in the energy sector since a long time, and therefore they have already a working infrastructure to bring the e-cat as fast as possible as a mass-product to market.

      • Barty,

        Good point. I am patiently waiting for the mystery to enfold (or to unravel).

        Cheers,

    Is Anyone Really surprised.

    MIT Deep Sixed Dr. Peter Hagelstein NANOR Device funding. It would be easy for them to manipulate voting on this. They are after all a University and enticing people to vote in a certain manor under multiple E-mail addresses wouldn’t be to difficult. In Fact, they could promote any project they saw fit considering the total number of likely votes. All predetermined from the Start.

    This Fact came to mind right at the beginning of the Voting process when I read that the presentation would be Done At MIT.
    I Was Just Hoping I Would Be Proved Wrong.

    George Miley didn’t stand a chance.
