Is This For Real?
Ok, these folks:
claim to be revolutionizing just about everything, but especially power production, by turning hydrogen into a form they call “hydrinos” at a lower quanum level, a fraction of the usual base state.
They seem to assert that mixing a bit of hydrogen in with a nobel gas and hitting it with a bit of microwaves makes is very hot (per the abstract of a paper linked below). Excess energy out. Now this sets off my BS-o-meter big time. But digging through their site they have a section that references papers the look to be in peer reviewed form at relatively normal science paper sites:
They also claim a university has verified their net energy claim in a PDF you can get.
So I’m in a quandary. On the one hand it looks like real “perpetual motion changes everything!!” with hand waving BS-o-Meter stuff. On the other hand it would take one heck of a lot of skill and work to hack a site together enough to simulate all this (including what acts like real links to real sites). So I’m left wondering:
Is this for real?
The physics community seems to think he has real theories, but is split over any truth they might contain:
And this implies he has really published (but that it might be junk).
Wikipedia is similarly split, but a bit skeptical:
And these folks seem to be an aggregator without much comment:
Anyone who can access the papers (i.e. has Science Direct type account) or has the needed real physics background to check in to this is invited to please post a comment saying if this is real, or just BS…
(The rest of us are invited to indulge in rampant unfounded speculation and wide spread puzzlement 8-)
