MFMP Glowstick Test — Discussion Thread

Bob Greenyer has posted on the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project’s Facebook page about a new MFMP test to start ‘first thing’ in the morning of April 2, (California time) to be carried out by Alan Goldwater.

Bob reports that the calibration for the *Glowstick* MK2 reactor has all been completed. Bob says that since the nickel powder he was given by Alexander Parkhomov is still in transit, Alan Goldwater will be using Hunter Chemical AH50 Carbonyl Nickel powder, along with lithium aluminum hydride.

Alan Goldwater writes on the MFMP FB page:

If all goes well, I’ll start the live run around 6 AM tomorrow. Interesting things should start happening by Noon and excess heat by 6 PM [we wish!]. Not sure what to do if it’s stable and still running at Midnight. Can I safely get some sleep with a ‘nuclear’ reactor running in my garage?”

Bob Greenyer tells me he hopes he will be able to get some live streaming set up; however, broadcasting from Alan Goldwater’s site has not been set up yet. They will probably use Hugnet data capture to give results in real time.

Let’s keep comment and news about this experiment on this thread — will update as needed tomorrow.

UPDATE: 7:31 a.m. (Pacific time): Bob Greenyer comments here:

“Alan started at 6.30am and is at around 70ºC on a 12 hour ramp to 1200. He is recording all the data, we are trying to find the best way to get a livestream working from his site.”

UPDATE: 9:00 a.m.
