Those who watched the Blacklight Power demonstration on January 28th saw heavy theory and measurements, not so much on the BANG factor. However, the most recent videos published by BLP show a much livelier interaction.
These new videos, published over the weekend, document BLP’s initial experiences with a recently acquired seam welder, permitting continuous ignition. Anyone who was convinced that the demo was rigged is unlikely to have their mind changed.
However, what’s clear from the new video is that the process, whatever it is, can be performed on the order on 10Hz or higher. The next important step will be to show regeneration of the “jumping johnny” aliquots via aqueous hydration only and therefore truly continuous operation of a power source based on converting water to highly-explosive plasma. Enjoy.
