Thanks to Bob Greenyer for sharing this sad news about LION, a long-time researcher in the subjects we discuss here, and a frequent contributor to this site for many years:
Late afternoon on the 24th April 2023, I got a deeply saddening message from a representative of the wife of the researcher we know as LION, who produced the experiments known as LION reactors.
It is with great sorrow that I report that on the 4th April, the researcher known as LION, suffered a coronary heart attack and died at 6.30pm. It was unexpected and surprised everyone.
His wife believes I was working with Neil on similar projects regarding Nuclear Fusion, and she wishes to keep her husbands legacy on-going and wondered if the project might be interested in taking over his life long research and experimental records.
I cannot overstate how important LIONs work was to my own and that of the projects. Though he had been researching in the field for many years, he was the first independent researcher to test my 17 March 2014 proposal to use industrial Nickel / Diamond abrasives as a reaction matrix. It was his uniquely inventive series of LION experiments from mid June 2017 that produced the principle scientific data that lead to the realisation in 2018 called ‘O-Day’. Frankly, without him sharing his reactor with the MFMP for our analysis, ‘O-Day’ might never have happened.
“Mining diamonds with LION” was the first video I published about ‘LION’s” experiments based on analysis I did on the reactors he shared with us. In the introduction to the video I state that it was
