What is really going well in LENR land?
1. Well, Peter, I think you are, together with Frank Ackland, David Nygren and many others who keep The New Fire alive in our minds by filling your blogs with constant LENR information!
2. All the replicators like Bob Greenyer and those working together with MFMP, but also Alan Smith and Hank Mills who facilitates those who want to replicate. They will be the first to see the New Fire and I envy them..
3. Us the followers of the New Fire. We maintain the story of the New Fire hot and we will inform the world when the New Fire is lit.

Re: LENR landscape
-I have shown consistent exces energy with the NIH system funded by EPRI. Se EPRI report 1025575 dated August 2012
- I intend to experiment with other avenues with Randall Mills concepts. I think there may be DDLs or Hydrinos, but only fleeting if not virtual.
- I think it should be required reading to study the DTIC report from 1995 by Thermacore Corp, Lancaster PA. They showed 97 watts of excess thermal energy without electrolysis
- The Thermacore team was under contract to me at the time and I never met more talented heat transfer specialists. This report was neglected at the peril of LENR supporters.
The Thermacore experiments were showing great promise when the company was abruptly sold in 1996.

I just awoke in the middle of the night and read your wish. I'll add three things to the list before returning to dreamland.

The Muon Dance - Leif Holmlid
Sweden gets really cold, ran out of coal long ago and has no oil. They crave heat. Observation of cheap muon catalyzed fusion in LENR is lending credibility to the field. Cold fusioneers doing the muon dance is more exciting than the twist.

Joyful LENR Airbus Envy
Everyone wishes they had labs as nice as those at Airbus. With three LENR patents published in 2016, those labs are aglow with the New Fire. The first was filed in September of 2014 and was not published till July 28, 2016… Happy to note… It was Joyfully GRANTED ON....LY 22nd - 26 DAYS BEFORE PUBLICATION!! Joyful joyful…

Mysterious 250MWe to 5GWe LENR Power Plants
Everyone loves a good mystery… Lawrence Forsley of SPAWAR fame, Chief Scientist at Global Energy Corporation which is out there peddling such huge LENR power plants around the world is a great one. I'm wondering how it will end… just have to wait and see. Looking at the list of chapters in this book, not one is titled scam artist or fraudster.

Anyways, back to sleep and some really wonderful dreams. Sure to wake in the morning much refreshed… goodnight now and great big hugs to all of you.

Att: 1  Exhibit,
Att: 2  Exhibit,
Att: 3  Exhibit,
Att: 4  Exhibit

2) New Exhibits Posted in Rossi v. Industrial Heat Case — Includes List of Plant Visitors, and Test Plan by Penon 

3) Industrial Heat's James A. Bass: President of Reactance Engineering Inc and Engineer for JM 

4)E-Cat Plant Test Plan (Fabio Penon)

(This is a very relevant and important document)


1. Plant description

The MW1—USA plant under test consists of 115 power generation units, grouped in modules. Only 111 units will be operational during the tests: Four units will be used as spare parts.
Every unit absorbs a power of about 1.1 kW — 2.5 kW
Each unit consists of a reaction chamber, where the nickel powder reacts with the hydrogen in the presence of a catalyst. Electric heaters heat the reaction chamber and by this way trigger the reaction between nickel and hydrogen.The power panel regulates the power supply of the electric heaters.
The cooling water is contained in a tank, placed inside the plant, that receives the water from an external plant. It is conveyed by pumps in the units E—Cat, where it is heated to vaporize. The steam is collected in one tube of the steam line, which conveys it to the outside of the shelter.
The steam is then passed through the customer’s facility, where it cools up to its condensation.
The water is so recycled to the internal tank in a closed loop. The water is distilled water. The external tank is connected with the internal tank, by a water line and a floating valve, so that the level of water inside the internal tank is maintained constant. The water flows from the external tank into the internal tank by gravity.
The heating elements of the E-Cat units, the pumps for the water, the internal services to the shelter and the control panel are powered by the public grid
In the plant some measuring instruments are installed:
– flowmeter for measuring the flow rate of cooling water inlet into the shelter. It is located along the line of return of the water, between the plant of the Customer and the 1 MW E—Cat
– temperature probe for measuring the cooling water temperature at the inlet of the shelter. It is located in the internal water tank, containing cooling distilled water.
– temperature probe for measuring steam temperature at the outlet of the shelter. It is located along the steam pipe at the outside of the shelter
– pressure probe for measuring steam pressure at the outlet of the shelter. It is located along the steam pipe at the outside of the shelter
– power analyzer for measuring the power supply. It is located along the electric power line before the E—Cat

2. Test set up

2.1 List of components

. 60 Water pump ( Prominent). 

115 E-Cat units
1 Water pump
1 Internal Water tank (0.2 C.M. )
1 Auxiliary external water tank

2.2 Measurement instrumentation

-Flowmeter Test report n. 01/2015, dated 2015/01/15
-Power analyzer PCE 830 Calibration certificate n. 0518/15, dated 2015/01/28
-Probe for water temperature measurement HSTC – TT – Tl — 24S.
– Probe for steam temperature measurement TU — T – NPT — U 72
- Probe for steam pressure measurement PX 309—100A5V
– Multifunction calibrator
The measurement chain of temperature a will be calibrated by the thermometer HSTC-TT-Tl-24S-1M-SMPW-M

3. Calculation of the energy multiple

6.1 Calculation of the energy produced ( EP )
The energy produced by 111 power generator units is given by the sum of the heat of heating of water, heat of vaporization of water and heat of superheating the steam.

ER ( energy of heating of water up to100 °C )= Mw x Csw ( va — Tiw)
Mw = mass of water vaporized during the whole test, coming from tank
TiW = inlet temperature of the water, coming from tank
Csw= specific heat of water = 1‘14 Wh/(kg°K)
va = vaporization temperature of the water = 100 °C

Ev = ( energy of vaporization of water) = A x MwA = ( latent energy of vaporization) = 627,5 Wh/kg

Es ( heating energy of steam ) = M3 x Cps x ( Tos — va)
Ms = mass of steam produced during the whole test
Cps =specific heat of steam at constant pressure = 0,542 Wh/kg
Tos = outlet temperature of the steam
va = vaporization temperature of the water
The values refer to the atmospheric pressure

In order to be conservative:
- it will be not taken into account the heating energy of steam
- the temperature of the incoming water will be always considered to be equal to the maximum value of the same measured during the entire test day

It will be possible small leaks of water to the inside of the shelter and are present measurement uncertaintiesTo take this into account the total mass of water transited during the test period will be reduced by 10%..

3.2 Calculation of the energy absorbed ( Ea )
The energy is supplied from the public grid in order to be conservative: — all the supplied energy is supposed be absorbed by the 111 reactors
In reality a part of this energy feeds the pump, which conveys the water from the tankexternal to the reactors This energy doesn’t feed the reactors

3.3 Calculation of the ‘energy multiple’

Energy multiple = energy produced (EP) 
                              energy absorbed ( EA)

4. Test protocol

Before testing Leonardo Corporation will implement the system in accordance with reference documentation
The ERV will provide the measuring devices: robe for measuring water inlet temperature 
probe to measure outlet steam temperature,
probe to measure the outlet steam pressure, 
inlet water flowmeter, 
electrical power analyser
Leonardo Corporation will install measuring devices with reference documentation
Before the plant start up the ERV will verify the compliance of the plant configuration and of the measuring chains with reference documentation.He will carry out a trial run
Leonardo Corporation will start the system
The ERV will then follow the system start-up to reach the operating conditions and at least the next 24 hours of operation
According to data collected after the first 24 hours of operation, he will make an initial assessment of the ‘Energy Multiple’ and he will prepare the report
During the test will be detected the electrical power supplied, the temperature of the inlet water, the temperature and the pressure of the outlet steam, the flow rate of inlet water.
At 00.00 of every day of the test, the measurement system will calculate the mass of water that has passed through the E—Cat and the total energy supplied to the E—Cat.
Every event that occurs from the start until the close of the tests, after 350 days of operation, will be recorded in the logbook by Leonardo Corporation.
During the 350 days of operation, the ERV will visits to the plant with a frequency approximately four months in order to verify the configuration of the system and the measuring chains and make evaluations of Multiple Energy
At the end of the 350 days of operation the ERV will follow the shutdown of the plant. At the conclusion of the test the ERV will produce a final report, showing the results

To educate somebody means to make him/her able to cope with any situation.

A pragmatic principle of the British  education system starting around 1890than gradually lost, eroded, metamorphosed. Today too it is not explicit that problem solving skills are the key to a better, less chaotic future.
I thought much about the difficult years following the events of October 1956, oppression, negative privileges etc. and when I read the today's essay at LENR IN CONTEXT-2 saying "happiness makes you less creative" I could add- 
good life also' Life is not a meritocracy however if you are spoiled you are weakened; the unprivileged, the underprivileged are better educated and some compensation of their bad start conditions appear.

A short note from Andrea Rossi re Revolutions, what is revolutionary in his system

In the dialectic of history, revolution's essence is the vacuum left by a situation efore it. Basically it is field that gets a force when a symmetry is broken

I just got the force deriving from the vacuum related to the exploiting of the energies non related to known chemical reactions. I must add that the spark that has broken this symmetry has been the exploit of F&P; like global symmetry broken- that has shown the force deriving from the breaking of a local symmetry


David  French, our excellent patent specialist has shown that I am speaking about patents in my yesterday issue, including the title however actually there are Patent Applications. Thanks Davide, true mea culpa, I apologize and promise to be more careful and precise next time.


1)From the LENR Forum a new peer-reviewed paper by Leif Holmlid:

"Leptons from decay of mesons in the laser-induced particle pulse from ultra-dense protium p(0)"
Kaons and pions are observed by their characteristic decay times of 12, 52 and 26 ns after impact of relatively weak ns-long laser pulses on ultra-dense hydrogen H(0), as reported previously. The signal using an ultra-dense protium p(0) generator with natural hydrogen is now studied. Deflection in a weak magnetic field or penetration through metal foils cannot distinguish between the types of decaying mesons. The signals observed are thus not caused by the decaying mesons themselves, but by the fast particles often at > 50 MeV u−1 formed in their decay. The fast particles are concluded to be mainly muons from their relatively small magnetic deflection and strong penetration. This is further supported by published studies on the direct observation of the beta decay of muons in scintillators and solid converters using the same type of p(0) generated

About Revolutions

Revolutions are always more exciting than baby steps. (Philip Bump 
Every revolution evaporates and leaves behind only the slime of a new bureaucracy. (Franz Kafka) 
Revolutions have never lightened the burden of tyranny. They have only shifted it to another shoulder. ( George Bernard Shaw) 

Revolution is just one crowd taking power from another. (John Updike)

We used to think that revolutions are the cause of change. Actually it is the other way around: change prepares the ground for revolution. (Eric Hoffer)

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable. (John F. Kennedy)

The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall. (Che Guevara)

A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery. (Mao Zedong)

A revolution is not a bed of roses. A revolution is a struggle to the death between the future and the past. (Fidel Castro)

You cannot make a revolution with silk gloves. (Joseph Stalin)

a) 1956 my first revolution

Today we celebrate the 60 the anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956
a heroic fight for freedom. We mourn the many victims of the fast repression that came mercilessly. 
The heroes have preserved a high degree of moral perfection and ideality
Revolutions are orgasms or fits of History and as such do not last much- a victorious revolution becomes a contradiction in terms; the initial ideals are lost and a struggle 
for power starts (see Mottoes)  Think about the French Revolution- its ideals are shining and are eternal however Terror has surfaced and it  ended with an Emperor.
Or what has followed after the Great October Revolution in the Soviet Union. 
Our 1989 Revolution has lead to a strange mixture of good and bad things- corruption being a leit-motif. Think about the unwanted consequences of the revolutions against dictatorship in countries as Libya. Ask your Italian friends.

But I am not expert in politics and history. I have my very personal remembrances re the 1956. We the students from Timisoara (I was the in the 2nd year of Industrial Chemistry) have organized an echo movement of sympathy for the Hungarian events. I participated t a meeting on Oct 30  and at  demonstration march on October 31 - some 1000 students In the center of the City, near the Cathedral We were surrounded by the army and loaded in trucks. I have seen how scared and confused the young soldiers are and I made maneuvers to be in the very last of the many army trucks. The convoy was circulating rather slowly so at a proper place I jumped from the truck and run as fast as I could, entered a house then through the courtyard I jumped over a fence in my favorite restaurant garden CINA and then hiding as much as could I went home. My colleagues were carried to the garrison of Becicherec a near village and convinced by the adequate means to sign declarations of obedience and  loyalty to the Communist Party.
A few days later when the Universities and the Polytechnics started to work again, we all have signed those declarations- the alternative being expelled  from the university and going to prison.
The Party Secretary of our Faculty a tovarishch Bunescu delivered  a fulminating discourse: "How do you dare..." was the refrain. He was an actor, spoke pathetically about the inerrancy of the Communist Party, we sinned, we have to repent. We were discouraged but life continued.

b) Ed Storms answers to AXIL

AXIL asks some questions on your blog. Clearly, he has not bothered to read my book where I address the problem of control  and meltdown.  Right now, the important problem is to discover how to cause the effect and to identify the unique conditions required to support the nuclear reaction.  I suggest AXIL try to focus on this issue and read what I have written before describing what I have not done.

Also, when discussing melting, the critical temperature is NOT the melting point of pure Pd or Ni, but the melting point caused by the local concentration of the many impurities, each of which will lower the local melting point, which is the evidence for melting that is actually observed

"Method for the Producing Heavy Electrons"

Inventor: Mauro Schiavon
Original Assignee: Schiavon, Mauro
Filing date: 2016-04-01
Publication date: 2016-10-05


A method is presented for the continuous production of heavy electrons with extra mass values such that they can be captured by hydrogen ions and give rise to the generation of a neutron flux which optionally can be used to trigger and sustain a low energy nuclear reaction. This method is based on the physical phenomenon of Localized Plasmon Resonance (Local Surface Plasmon Resonance - LSPR).

Background of the invention
[0002] Recently a theory was advanced that combines the energy developed by the "Low Energy Nuclear Reactions" (LENR - Low Energy Nuclear Reactions) with the production of heavy electrons. Briefly, this theory proposed by Widom and Larsen, states that at the base of the development of low-energy nuclear reactions there are appropriate energy resonance conditions of "surface plasmon polaritons" (Surface Plasmon Polariton - SPP) capable of producing heavy electrons that interact with hydrogen ions in a crystal of a metal hydride or of an electrically conductive material that has hydrogen ions on the surface.


The same source, of the hacking attempt I gave warning of several days ago, is sending around another fake email, signed “Fabio Penon” containing an attachment that leads to the hacking of your computer.

Hydrogen (H2) is an extremely simple molecule and yet a valuable raw material which as a result of the development of sophisticated catalysts is becoming more and more important. In industry and commerce, applications range from food and fertilizer manufacture to crude oil cracking to utilization as an energy source in fuel cells. A challenge lies in splitting the strong H-H bond under mild conditions. Chemists have now developed a new catalyst for the activation of hydrogen by introducing boron atoms into a common organic molecule.

"Extra LENR-am non est vita; sed est non est ita"
(Outside LENR there is no life and it is, it is not the same") explanation below at b) 


a) The mottoes of yesterday

I forgot to tell you wise saying of Lampedusa
"Scratch an altruist and you will get a hypocrite bleeding" 
Hypocrites can be really despicable, wherever they appear.

One reader, nickname Che, has called my attention to the fact that based on the "Leopard" novel a great Italian director who was a communist has made a movie. 
OK, I know well hat Luchino Visconti was a member of the Italian Communist Party
however he was also an aristocrat, a genius, a homosexual and a time relatively close to the son of Benito Mussolini; however only his geniality is only relevant 
for the movie. Again I must emphasize the validity of one of Carlo Cipolla's Laws
of Human Stupidity: " Stupidity is independent from ANY other characteristic of the individual"
Tomorrow we will celebrate the 60-th Anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution
that was surely not triggered by the good life in a communist, oppressive society.
More about the 1956 events- my participation- tomorrow.

b) Thinking about Hungary- the Motto of today

Extra Hungariam non est vita, sed est non est ita.
 A saying once very popular in the neighboring country- coined by the Italian philosopher Caelius Rhodiginius in the XV century - who observed how much Hanagrian students where attached to their own foods and tradition, then resurrected by Szaszky Tomka Janos three century's later ;
the saying getting many interpretations. It is very impressive to see how powerful traditions can be or a dominant modus vivendi.  Hungry as used for the saying but actually it is very civilized country. And I share their attitude toswrd unknown and uncontrollable emigrants.
And despite the fact that my Blog is dedicated now to LENR I well know there is life outside LENR too. And I can tell you about many things. LENR is however unique
in many ways, it sis still going through interesting times.

MIT announces hot fusion breakthrough


About  Ed Storm's theory
Ed Storms has never taken reactor meltdown seriously in his formulation of LENR theory. But over time, reactor meltdown has been shown to be a major factor in the development of LENR technology by multiple LENR experimenters.

People who have successfully produced a gainful LENR reaction have first started out with a succession of reactor meltdowns. Rossi has stated that in the beginning of his development, he melted down hundreds of his reactors.

ME356 has also explained how he melted down his reactors until he figured out how to moderate the LENR reaction.

Recently, another new and sucessful Rossi replicator has melted down multiple reactors until he figured out how to control the reaction.

And let us not forget Alexander Parkhomov who in the beginning accumulated a bushel of melted reactor fragments of his first reactor attempts.

If Ed Storms does not want to deal with a major behavioral characteristic of the LENR development cycle; if Ed wants to ignore what is happening during reactor meltdown; how does Ed's theories advance the understanding of the Rossi LENR+ method.

Even Pd/D technology has seen electrolytic LENR systems melt down, but Ed's theories cannot even explain this condition.

This basic question that Ed must answer in this theory is what produces the LENR reaction, how does this reaction gets out of control and how is the reaction moderated to a steady state condition when this supercritical condition sets in.

About Rossi's achievments

Rossi's technical approach has been replicated by at least three experimenters that I know about and maybe more that I don't know about. These replications provide grounds to question the opinion of the Rossi detractors. It also provides grounds to keep an open mind about the efficacy of the nickel/lithium/hydrogen LENR reaction that we call LENR+ 

GREGORY GOBLE about FASTNESS and LENR- answer to my editorial about Fastness

Fastness, an excellent choice for the title. Its' meaning is rich with complexities. 

Fastness describes an ability to not move, to be fixed in place, as in colour fastness.
Also the quality of how swiftly things move or operate.

A place that is difficult to get to or that can be easily defended if it is attacked. 

Consider as well, fastness as the ability for an organism to resist a toxic substance.

Each of these meanings can be applied to aspects of the history of cold fusion/LENR science.

My Heart Always

My heart always goes
To the mountain fastness

My heart overflows
With joyful gladness

My heart always shows
Peace through the madness

My heart gently holds
All painful sadness

My heart always knows
Love is the way
