UPDATE – Feb 4th: The Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project’s testing plans for today have been disrupted by a major equipment failure:
Here’s a post from the MFMP Facebook Page:
“Move fast and break things. Unless you are breaking stuff, you are not moving fast enough.” — Mark Zukerberg
AAARRRGGHH!!! We did not intend to take this inspirational quote so seriously. The Optris thermal camera is dead. It apparently died in the same event that took out the broadcast computer. Once we got another computer set up, we found the camera would not talk. Then we plugged it into two other computers we had tested it with previously. No go. A mouse and at least one web cam seem to be dead as well. Needless to say, we are disappointed and this will change our plans even more. Stay tuned”.
Feb 2nd: I’ve just received a YouTube link to the live test they will be carrying out today.
Here’s the description from the YT video:
“In this first Lugano verification experiment – we will be trying to test the validity of the thermal assessment by Calibration with Thermocouples, emissivity spots, Optris camera, and Williamson Pyrometer.”
