thanks beal ive been watching this but missed that one. If this is real bu bye oil.

But more importantly. The middle east will lose all power. and will collapse back in to internal chaos. and any point of being there will be gone. or paying any sort of attention to them will be gone.

If I was a oil company I would be backing this guy hard asap.

Wouldn't it be amazing if this machine worked?

Wouldn't it be equally crazy if the mystery surrounding it was that it created demonic energy that tore open a gateway for infernal invaders?

You never know!

One of the interesting possibilities of this would be water desalination - which is very energy intensive to do a large-scale basis.

As a bit of a political side-note - I think one of the big problems with Obama's stimulus efforts have been that they've really just been "hole digging/filling exercises". Stuff like today's high speed trains really aren't going to make the US more productive in the long-term compared to our existing infrastructure and will likely wind up costing far more than their worth from the day they're started until the day they're finally shut down. However - near-free electrical energy (E-cat + nation-wide super grid) & near-endless fresh water - that would be worthwhile infrastructure investments.

better then that the unit are small enough for households. and cars. energy grid? why? Other then larger scale manufacturing. you wouldn't need it anymore.

Yeah - if they are small size, then no need for a grid (unless there's another reason not to localize them).

I like the idea, but can see our government killing it as it would put too many people out of work and kill off businesses.

You know when the problem is 'bubbles' breaking down structural integrity of the containment shield (concrete wall?) something isn't been thought through before reactor construction.

No 'collector' for heavy He2 emissions? Cavitation has been a problem in fluid systems and silent running subs and now 'reactors'. I have only ever been able to visualise cavitation phenomenon even when I have seen technical descriptions in training videos. So I have only been able to suppose what is actually happening. Nearest i would go to identifying the factors are mathematic sequences and series or functions and limits; and Chord because somehow the 'bubble' has a pointy end, the 'Chord' is derived as a principle of the aerofoil effect. Beyond that simplified visual there be dragons. I never did connect the limit of a function (Lim X --> diameter He) I think it was anti-diff or integral calculus related somehow.

As for the E-Cat of Bologna University's A. Rossi, the reaction has to be repeatable by independent tests done by other people. His observations would be 'confirmed' if his claim was true. Otherwise its another myth.

My biggest problem is. this guys got a history. and not a terribly good one. But again from from the point of view that if you let people know how its done. then you have pretty much lost any way of controlling or making real money off it.

My biggest question is this though. If you need to get a patent for it. and they dont want to issue one due to the idea that "well it doesn't appear to follow what we know of the laws of physics"

well then. I gotta say. people have been wrong before about a great many things they thought were the laws of the universe.

but again in this case time will tell. If his plant starts cranking out pretty much free power well then.. ..

Wow, wouldn't it be neat if technology could finally catch up with the world's demand for energy? You look at the way the economy is going around the world, and the future looks rather dim (no pun intended). However, if this is for real, things brighten up a bit. Would be nice.

Actually, that's not true. If businesses can halve there energy costs, it leaves alot more capital for expansion.

My issue is how to they intend to transfer that heat energy into something we can use (ie. electrical energy). It was stated that room temp water stops the reaction... not sure how your going to transfer that heat to usable energy.

Air pistons? Air turbines? just a thought.

Most certainly energy prices have had an effect on the economy over the past several decades. It is probably not a coincidence that the stagflation of the 1970s and the relative weakness of the past several years coincided with high energy prices, while the explosive growth and low unemployment of the 1980s and 1990s coincided with low energy prices.

Those both kinda rely on the rapid expansion of gasses. If this puts out such a low amount of heat that room temp water can snuff it out... I don't think it's going to rapidly expand anything.
