Blacklight Power follow up and other claims

Blacklight Power has claimed to have produced 50KW power generator prototypes which they expect to start selling in 2009. They also claim that the Hydrino technology will enable better lasers, batteries and new materials. It will be interesting to see what happens in 2009. The latest expected unit costs for the Blacklight power system compared …

Dark Matter Physics, Hydrinos all want to claim the soft X-ray signal from Andromeda galaxy and Perseus galaxy cluster

EPFL scientists have picked up an atypical photon emission in X-rays coming from space, and say it could be evidence for the existence of a particle of dark matter. Could there finally be tangible evidence for the existence of dark matter in the Universe? After sifting through reams of X-ray data, scientists in EPFL’s Laboratory …

Nextbigfuture Current Position on Cold Fusion

I agree that there is a lot of weird stuff going on with Rossi and Defkalion but I think that Brillouin Energy, Brian Ahern, George Miley and probably Piantelli seem credible and George Miley. George Miley replicated the Pattison cell. Getting hundreds of watts. Miley is a major researcher in all kinds of nuclear fusion. …
