The truth is like a lion. You don’t have to defend it. Let it loose. It will defend itself.- (Augustine of Hippo)

Old weird metaphor...against whom or what can you defend a lion?  The answer is easy- against other lions competing for territory, dominance, power. The truths of other people- also like  lions ready to fight, knowing no mercy.

It was already analyzed: in my imagination, LENR is very, unnecessarily complex, while actually for really great minds with vision it is simple, beautiful, natural; people like me ignore Occam's Razor, unity and uniqueness are just slogans.
Probably I know little and my following Problem Solving Rule is valid only for me: " NOT what we know, but what we don’t know is more important for solving the problem"
My ignorant arrogance goes so far that I dare to say that the huge impressive  scientific knowledge accumulated for the Pd/D2O system - that is technologically underdeveloped and hopeless- OK, this Knowledge is of reduced value for the development and problem solving of the applied research of the systems in the useful Debye temperature - melting temperature intervallum. This idea could lead even to the absolutely blasphemous idea that a great, even the greatest PdD systems Guru will be degraded to the position of an apprentice in the area of the technologically viable LENR systems- his mode of thinking bound to the old system being even a serious drawback. But NO! this is not admissible, Mother Nature herself
will help her faithful sons/daughters who know how benevolent she is.
Therefore- Only a single, unique sort of LENR exists- The LENR. PdD teaches us everything we need.
And Peter, your idea of LENR Diversity is just your non-healthy imagination ( to not use a word that rhymes with Diversity)

I have been also accused of ignoring the great teaching potential  of the Pd D systems, perhaps being confused by the bad reproducibility problem or because my primitive longing for actionable parameters- it is easy to see that I am not a scientist but an engineer.

I will continue, as citizen of Terra it is my duty to protect bio-diversity, as fighter for New Energy it is my duty to fight for LENR-diversity.
My lion fights with other lions and only Facts can decide the winner. Facts comed but very slowly, especially today. 
The Blog is active anyway, when I am finishing this issue only 11 reader visits are missing for the mark of 500,000 page-views for the blog history.
Thank you, dear readers!
A bit of music for you:


Reactor tube conductivity is completely negligible

  1. The nuclear rocket is such an attractive concept for space exploration that the space fairing nations of the world have repeatedly experimented with this concept for the last 50 years in an attempt to perfect this idea. Even with the great dangers and disadvantages in this approach involving radioactive contamination of vast swaths of their countries, its promise is overwhelming to the rocket engineers if not the population unser the fall of radioctive debris resulting from a launch failure.

    Nuclear thermal rocket

    As a thermal rocket that heats liquid hydrogen to 1400C, a nuclear rocket’s specific impulse is equal to that of the space shuttle. The specific impulse is a measure that can be thought of as thrust divided by propellant mass per unit time. If the temperature of the hydrogen exhaust gas can be raised between 2000C and 3000C degrees, its spacific impulse would be great enough to lift 10 to 20 times the payload of the space shuttle into orbit using the same size vehicle. Truly, if a safe source of refectory level heat can be found to heat hydrogen gas to incandescence, or even just beyond 1000C, the door to the exploitation and commercialization of the solar system would be thrown wide opened to space based exploration and utilization.

    Now, with the advent of the Hot Cat, a way to heat hydrogen rocket exhaust gas could now provide a safe and effective way to lift massive amounts of payload into orbit at a greatly reduced cost. The LENR boost vehicle could do more for space exploration than the Space Elevator could ever do and it would be a lot less expensive.

    The design goal of such a LENR booster is to produce 4 gigawatts of heat for 170 seconds. How could this be done? Well let’s figure out a way to get many Hot cat alumina reactors to mealt down at a controlled and sustained rate.

    Let’s feed hot cat inches long reactor rods of alumina into a chamber of heat and EMF excitation to melt down like a steam engine burns coal. A bin full of Hot cat rods can be fed from a hopper into an Hot cat ignition chamber where other hot cats are in various stages of melt down mixed with liquid hydrogen. A Cat and mouse process would keep the Hot cat chamber at 3000C for the 20 seconds that it takes each Hot cat tube to disintegrate. The bottom of tthe Hot cat tube pile would be the hottest the the top of the pile just starting the burnup process. A screen of refactory material at the end of the ignition chamber would allow Hot cat fragments comprised of ruby dust and the vapor of nickel powder to be expelled out of the reaction nozzle along with the heated hydrogen. This should allow the Hot cat booster to achieve orbit in a single stage. But I am sure that once all you who want to explore and utilize space put your minds to this task, you all can come up with a far more elegant solution to LENR booster technology.
