MFMP to Start New Glowstick Test, May 28th — Live Thread

There’s a post on the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project’s Facebook page announcing a new live test which is to start later today.

Alan Goldwater of the MFMP gives this schedule:

The current plan is to start the test at 4 PM local (23:00 UTC), to accommodate a wider range of time zones for the second half of the run. The early parts of the ramp should show the pressure peak from hydride decomposition at around 02:00 UTC tomorrow, followed by absorption of hydrogen. We expect the interesting stuff to start at around 850 C, at 10:00 UTC. I’ll post the link for the Youtube stream when we start the run

Calibration runs have already been completed; here are a couple of charts which will be useful for reference:


We’ll be following the action here on ECW on this thread. More information when it comes available.
