From: Dave Jones, did you see evidence that the amount of energy that could be extracted would exceed the amount stored within the permanent magnets?  Also, where did the inventor think the excess energy originated from? Dave No. That has not been proved and it is easy to fool oneself as this

Before NASA wastes too much of their precious R on buggy wip technology, it is time for the Quark to take center stage in powering space exploration and settlement. Replacing the fission heat source in Kilopower is a no brainer. Safety Certification is obviously not required for this technology

Mills could also use the Kilopower solution. At 3000C, the effect must be way over 38%. On Thu, Nov 16, 2017 at 2:36 PM, wrote: > In reply to JonesBeene's message of Wed, 15 Nov 2017 18:15:22 -0800: > Hi, > [snip] > >Sooner or later, it is likely that Mills will have a

While the Carnot efficiency certainly goes up with temperature, the lifetime of the materials go down rapidly above about 500C. Most commercial high reliability systems operate at about 300C. The Sterling engine will have its share of material problems at 600C hot end, but is going to be a

Invention secrecy orders are still routine. Thirty-nine (39) new ones on private (non government funded) entities) issued in one year. This may adversely affect open science, particularly in LENR and other strategic- related energy R IMHO. See:

The fall in the end was the most interesting. It does look like the way Olympic gymnasts fall. If they can make it rise fast, like a human, it will be awesome. The biggest limitation here, though, it is the lack of power efficiency. They still look very heavy and the battery don't seem to last

The silver needs to stay liquid at 1000C, but the SunCell reaction still produces 3000C temperatures. Mills could change the metal used for the liquid electrodes to get to a lower operating temperature. On Thu, Nov 16, 2017 at 4:43 PM, wrote: > In reply to Axil Axil's

Even if the Mill's SunCell based power plant is destine to power autos as a prime application, the lack of fuel combustion would minimize violations, Ceramics might be a workable solution to higher efficiency. On Thu, Nov 16, 2017 at 4:47 PM, wrote: > In reply to Axil
