Maybe Thomas Gas is the breakthrough which will open the subject up again. It is a bit glib to lump it all as fringe science since there could be the same kernel of truth as in LENR - which generally leads us back to "dense hydrogen" being involved. Actually, town gas contained CO along with the hydrogen. You know, as in Gaslight, as in stick your head in the unlit oven to commit suicide. It was made by passing hot steam over coke, resulting in a mixture of CO and hydrogen. It was used before natural gas became available in the West. If anyone is still interested in dense hydrogen, it seems to me the Langmuir atomic hydrogen torch should be the main target of investigation. There have been a few claims of OU about Langmuir's torch. Some calorimetry seems in order here. >The original phenomenon - limelight - is 140 years old.Wow. Now we find that >Holmlid has given us an alternative explanation for what is going on... hmm >... one wonders about those old vaudevillians getting irradiated with muons. Am I the only one on this list to make a limelight? It's pretty easy. Apply an oxyhydrogen torch to a piece of marble, limestone or sea shell and the calcium carbonate is converted to calcium oxide on the spot. The resulting brilliant white light is a really beautiful form of illumination. Too bad it's impractical for everyday use. A few years ago, I was investigating the spectral radiance of limelight to see if there were any lines in the spectrum that shouldn't be there. Didn't find any. The muons felt great, though.
