"Extra LENR-am non est vita; sed est non est ita"
(Outside LENR there is no life and it is, it is not the same") explanation below at b) 


a) The mottoes of yesterday

I forgot to tell you wise saying of Lampedusa
"Scratch an altruist and you will get a hypocrite bleeding" 
Hypocrites can be really despicable, wherever they appear.

One reader, nickname Che, has called my attention to the fact that based on the "Leopard" novel a great Italian director who was a communist has made a movie. 
OK, I know well hat Luchino Visconti was a member of the Italian Communist Party
however he was also an aristocrat, a genius, a homosexual and a time relatively close to the son of Benito Mussolini; however only his geniality is only relevant 
for the movie. Again I must emphasize the validity of one of Carlo Cipolla's Laws
of Human Stupidity: " Stupidity is independent from ANY other characteristic of the individual"
Tomorrow we will celebrate the 60-th Anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution
that was surely not triggered by the good life in a communist, oppressive society.
More about the 1956 events- my participation- tomorrow.

b) Thinking about Hungary- the Motto of today

Extra Hungariam non est vita, sed est non est ita.
 A saying once very popular in the neighboring country- coined by the Italian philosopher Caelius Rhodiginius in the XV century - who observed how much Hanagrian students where attached to their own foods and tradition, then resurrected by Szaszky Tomka Janos three century's later ;
the saying getting many interpretations. It is very impressive to see how powerful traditions can be or a dominant modus vivendi.  Hungry as used for the saying but actually it is very civilized country. And I share their attitude toswrd unknown and uncontrollable emigrants.
And despite the fact that my Blog is dedicated now to LENR I well know there is life outside LENR too. And I can tell you about many things. LENR is however unique
in many ways, it sis still going through interesting times.


From Bob Greenyer
Independent *GlowStick* 5.2 replication in advanced stages
Over the past six months we have been working in a hands off way to help David Daggett and Phonon Energy prepare the nearest replica yet to our GS 5.2 experiment. They are nearly ready to run.

They are currently dealing with a leak - one of the biggest challenges in these experiments which we hope they will overcome.

MIT announces hot fusion breakthrough


About  Ed Storm's theory
Ed Storms has never taken reactor meltdown seriously in his formulation of LENR theory. But over time, reactor meltdown has been shown to be a major factor in the development of LENR technology by multiple LENR experimenters.

People who have successfully produced a gainful LENR reaction have first started out with a succession of reactor meltdowns. Rossi has stated that in the beginning of his development, he melted down hundreds of his reactors.

ME356 has also explained how he melted down his reactors until he figured out how to moderate the LENR reaction.

Recently, another new and sucessful Rossi replicator has melted down multiple reactors until he figured out how to control the reaction.

And let us not forget Alexander Parkhomov who in the beginning accumulated a bushel of melted reactor fragments of his first reactor attempts.

If Ed Storms does not want to deal with a major behavioral characteristic of the LENR development cycle; if Ed wants to ignore what is happening during reactor meltdown; how does Ed's theories advance the understanding of the Rossi LENR+ method.

Even Pd/D technology has seen electrolytic LENR systems melt down, but Ed's theories cannot even explain this condition.

This basic question that Ed must answer in this theory is what produces the LENR reaction, how does this reaction gets out of control and how is the reaction moderated to a steady state condition when this supercritical condition sets in.

About Rossi's achievments

Rossi's technical approach has been replicated by at least three experimenters that I know about and maybe more that I don't know about. These replications provide grounds to question the opinion of the Rossi detractors. It also provides grounds to keep an open mind about the efficacy of the nickel/lithium/hydrogen LENR reaction that we call LENR+ 

GREGORY GOBLE about FASTNESS and LENR- answer to my editorial about Fastness

Fastness, an excellent choice for the title. Its' meaning is rich with complexities. 

Fastness describes an ability to not move, to be fixed in place, as in colour fastness.
Also the quality of how swiftly things move or operate.

A place that is difficult to get to or that can be easily defended if it is attacked. 

Consider as well, fastness as the ability for an organism to resist a toxic substance.

Each of these meanings can be applied to aspects of the history of cold fusion/LENR science.

My Heart Always

My heart always goes
To the mountain fastness

My heart overflows
With joyful gladness

My heart always shows
Peace through the madness

My heart gently holds
All painful sadness

My heart always knows
Love is the way

New record for fusion: Giant leap in pursuit of clean energy
Alcator C-Mod tokamak nuclear fusion reactor sets world record on final day of operation

Scientists and engineers recently made a leap forward in the pursuit of clean energy. The team set a new world record for plasma pressure in an Alcator C-Mod tokamak nuclear fusion reactor. Plasma pressure is the key ingredient to producing energy from nuclear fusion, and MIT's new result achieves over 2 atmospheres of pressure for the first time.

When quantum scale affects the way atoms emit and absorb particles of light
Exact simulation lifts the 80-year-old mystery of the degree to which atoms can be dressed with photons
Date:October 21, 2016
In 1937, US physicist Isidor Rabi introduced a simple model to describe how atoms emit and absorb particles of light. Until now, this model had still not been completely explained. In a recent article, physicists have for the first time used an exact numerical technique: the quantum Monte Carlo technique, which was designed to explain the photon absorption and emission phenomenon.

Thanks to my friends Ron Kita and Terry Blanton who both have sent this:
Does this mysterious piece of aluminum prove UFOs visited Earth 250,000 years ago? 

For the time given I cannot tell anything.

  1. New Airbus LENR patent

    This is the most recent Airbus LENR patent. It describes in fine detail the method for creating and sustaining the nuclear fusion reaction.



    "Material assembly for a fusion reactor and method for producing the same"

    Inventor: Bernhard Kotzias
    Original Assignee: Airbus Defence and Space GmbH
    Filing date: 2016-03-15
    Publication date: 2016-09-21

    Abstract (translated from German)

    Disclosed is a material structure for a fusion reactor, comprising at least one material, which is designed as a foam-like support material for condensable binding and fusing of hydrogen, wherein the substrate is provided with positively charged voids for condensing hydrogen atoms, small pores for receiving the condensate and comprises accelerating condensation after prior entry of atoms or molecules in these and large pores for the transport of a catalyst into the small pores. Furthermore, a process for producing the material assembly is disclosed.
