Parkhomov is already scheduled to speak on January 27th at VNIIAES, All-Russian Research Institute for Nuclear Power Plant Operation in Moscow — so it sounds like there’s quite a publicity blitz taking place in Russia. It will be interesting to see what new results are presented, and if they confirm what were reported in the first report.

  • Curbina

    I wonder if these are new results building upon his december 29th publication, or the same data to a new audience.

    • Ged

      Good question. It seemed easy enough to do and quite a bit of time for more has passed, but I’m sure he has a busy day job.

    Diar David,
    On many of the posed questions I would like to have answers itself. But my opportunities as experimenter are generally settled only by demonstration of excess heat and lack of the noticeable ionizing radiation in the device which, on my representations, in general reproduces the high-temperature reactor of Rossi. Clarification of the mechanism of this surprising phenomenon and features of process in a high-temperature capsule requires the difficult equipment and work of highly skilled researchers.

    The problem of a high pressure of hydrogen, of course, excites me. At a simple reasoning, after decomposition of LiAlH4 to temperature less than 200oC pressure has to increase to hundreds of bars. And it has to cause explosion, or leak of hydrogen through a pores or cracks. But there is neither explosion, nor any signs of leak. It is possible to assume that 0,01 g of the allocated hydrogen are absorbed at once by nickel of which in 100 times more, and pressure doesn’t increase to catastrophic values.

    About that occurs in the high-temperature capsule, it is only possible to assume so far. Possibly, the nickel mixed with melted aluminum and lithium is in the environment of hydrogen and vapors of lithium. The air rest, reacting with hydrogen, lithium and aluminum, forms small impurity of nitrogen and ammonia, and also oxides and nitrides of lithium and aluminum.

      So Alexander also wonders about these things and does not really know how it works. I believe that if tests are done, you should do it with an external H2 bottle and carefully control the pressure, instead of hoping that it goes well with the fingers in your ears. Later you may be able to do it in the way Rossi does it, when you understand what is going on.

      • Alberonn

        AP is probably just the paramount experimentalist : observe your competitors : create a probable setup in a metal bucket in your drawingroom, fingers in your ears and after twenty-plus repetions : get Lucky : get things done… watch and learn MFMP….

    • Jag bara undrar?

      Place the lithium and aluminum inside the nickel. Add the hydrogen under pressure. Ensure that no impurities are left. When the reactor is heated, lithium and aluminum melts inside the surrounding nickel. Chemonuclear transition …….

  • Marius

    I have had an idea for some months that the purpose of Rossi’s control unit is to create Tesla Fireballs inside the reactor, and that this actually is the catalizer. Not being a physicist, I dont know if it is possible to create and contain a fireball within a closed reactor, but it could certainly explain the need for more input power (what we thought was just more heat) to control and renew the reaction.

  • OT- Off to the annual “Cold Fusion 101” class at MIT this week with Peter Hagelstein. Looks like the same outline as the last two years, though looking forward to hearing from Mitchel Swartz and his progress with the NANOR. Even though he runs a web “Cold Fusion Times” http://world.std.com/~mica/cft.html
    it’s hard to get info about his progress with Jet Energy.

    • Gerrit

      I hope there will be some representatives of large companies amongst the attendees. Maybe we even get some press coverage.

    • Ged

      Let us know how it goes, Barry! You’re lucky to get all the fun ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Ronzonni

      Please ask him what he thinks of Dr. Rossi’s accomplishments.

    Off of topic but i found very interesing the interview about oil prices with the Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal in USA TODAY:
    http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/columnist/bartiromo/2015/01/11/bartiromo-saudi-prince-alwaleed-oil-100-barrel/21484911/

    The Saudi says that we will never see 100$ oil barrer again!. They donยดt say anything about black swan LENR but that would be too much. He says that the reason is that there is too much oil and they cannot cut the production because they cannot trust in the OPEC to do it. That is strange and makes me wonder why not before.

    • Daniel Maris

      Normally I am a bit suspicious of attempts to link oil price movements and LENR but that is rather interesting. Why would Saudi Prince argue against a high oil price in the future? Seems counter-intuitive…we shall see.

      • Omega Z

        The Saudi’s don’t want oil prices above $100, because it wrecks the
        world economies. Not good for their near 1 Trillion$ in foreign
        investment portfolio. Like everyone else, their investments rise &
        fall with economic growth. “This is in Their Self Interest.”

    • Omega Z

      “The Saudi says that we will never see 100$ oil barrier again!”

      Coming from an Oil exporter who not all that long ago stated that in about 20 years, they will cease Oil exports in order to conserve what they have left at that time for their own people.

      I think this is just Politics and the target audience is the Saudi’s Own People. That they should not expect increased oil profits sharing(stipends) among their citizens.

      This is part of a long term trend of weaning them off of Government subsidies & stipends. It began with educating a management class & has progressed to replacing imported labor with their own blue collar class people. There are 1000’s of imported laborers being repatriated back to their nations of origin every month.

      They are in Fact, building an Economy that is not dependent on Oil exports & Government stipends. To be concluded by the time exports cease. About 20 years.

      Note: The Saudi’s don’t want oil prices above $100, because it wrecks the world economies. Not good for their near 1 Trillion$ in foreign investment portfolio. Like everyone else, their investments rise & fall with economic growth. “This is in Their Self Interest.”

    • Mike Ivanov

      Saudis are _very_ illiterate in science. (trust me, I know what I am talking about ๐Ÿ™‚ ). They rely on consulting services from western companies in all critical areas. It means they have no clue about current state of LENR, since none of experts who make money by selling their expertise will take the risk of promoting lenr. Therefore, all these oil price story related to actual and middle-term balance between oil supply and demand, nothing else.

    • mike

      Low oil price means US can’t drill for oil profitably. The left has used environmental causes to block the land from our access to resources. But fracking nullified environmental restrictions and with higher prices, america pumping out oil, lower demand, and Saudis don’t want to give up market share. Opec deliberately cut production to drive prices up. But they didn’t account for fracking, now they want to drive prices down to stop fracking here. But hey, our gas prices will go back to a dollar and a quarter, unless dems sneak in another tax like Clinton did. $.25 a gallon. But we’ll lose a million plus jobs.

      • The jury seems to be out on whether or not the apparently imminent launch of cold fusion reactors is a significant factor in falling oil prices. Geopolitical fun and games seem to play a pretty large part.

        BTW, in the UK and much of Europe, tax on fuel runs at around $5-7/gallon equivalent – more if you include the hefty taxes paid by the oil and refining companies before fuel even reaches the distribution tankers. Tax at these levels is painful and has almost certainly caused a degree of economic damage, but I think ‘a million plus jobs’ may be a tad pessimistic.

        • Jarea

          Agree and that is more or less what the Saudi says from the interview. However, that “never” is too much for me. Is like something they know. They think both the dollar will not be go down in value as they also think they will not be able to go up in price because nobody will pay that.

        • bachcole

          I just saw something at my credit union about some Texas oil firm buying the rights to drill in Russia for $1.7 billion. This causes me to think that we are wrapped up in ourselves way too much and that the rest of the world doesn’t hardly know that LENR exists.

          • It will be so tragic seeing any large speculators still ignorant about cold fusion filing for bankruptcy when the first metal hydride reactors are offered for sale or lease.

      • bachcole

        I agree 150%. If the consultants don’t know about LENR, the Saudis won’t know, and my estimate of those that don’t know is probably 80%. Probably all of the other 20% either disbelieve or aren’t telling. I mean, would you, given that so many of the 9/11 killers were Saudis and so much terrorism can be traced because to Saudi Arabia. I wouldn’t tell the Saudi’s squat other than what my job description required.

    Only thing that rankles here is why is it Russia, China, Korea, Italy, India, Japan, leading the way? It’s like the US State Department and DOE have elected to poop on the one technology that would give the USA global leadership and prestige. I say, “Throw the bums out!”
