Highlights of the Krivit’s third report on Rossi-Focardi Energy Catalyzer

Cold Fusion Now has gone through the Krivit’s third report Although most of the criticisms have been made elsewhere, Krivit has helpfully (for those critical of Rossi’s claims, at least) provided a clearinghouse for them. The arguments supporting Krivit’s claim that the E-Cat achieves an energy gain of only one or two times input power …

Metamaterials used to mimic the Big Crunch

Experimental observation of the “end of time event” in a plasmonic hyperbolic metamaterial illuminated with 488 nm light. Arxiv – Hyperbolic metamaterial interfaces: Hawking radiation from Rindler horizons and the “end of time” Extraordinary rays in a hyperbolic metamaterial behave as particle world lines in a three dimensional (2+1) Minkowski spacetime. We analyze electromagnetic field …

Printing Planes enables designs that were known to be more efficient but were too costly with conventional manufacturing

Engineers at the University of Southampton have designed and flown the world’s first ‘printed’ aircraft, which could revolutionise the economics of aircraft design. The SULSA (Southampton University Laser Sintered Aircraft) plane is an unmanned air vehicle (UAV) whose entire structure has been printed, including wings, integral control surfaces and access hatches. This is a followup …
