Russian Federation to publicly recognise LENR (Cold Nuclear Transmutation) an official science… ‘Toska’ :'(

“I had a Russian translator.”
“What happened?”
“Well… I took her out on a few dates, kind of crossed the ‘professionalism’ line so to speak… she won’t be translating for me again! As well as not seeing me at all. Don’t think she actually translated anything for me.” 😀
“What about the one before that?”
“Oh that was a Russian guy!… yeah had a few drinks and got into a punch up over something… … either way I seem to get physical with my Russian translators! I may as well just learn the bloody language myself.”

Sochi recently hosted the 25th Cold Nuclear Transmutation and Ball Lightning Conference.

The always delightful and amusing Bob Greenyer of the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project was lucky enough to attend, and has provided numerous video summaries and uploaded some of the presentations from the event (Russian to English translation required).

In summary, what this shows me is the fact that Russian scientists take this topic extremely seriously compared to the rest of the world. Historically, Soviet scientists where at the forefront of such research, and I believe there is much historical research, experiments and data yet to be either released, discovered or translated in English (like many other things from The Cold War!).

The rumour circulating the LENR (Cold Nuclear Transmutation) community in Russia is the Russian Federation are going to officially recognise it publicly as an official science (interesting).

My initial thoughts are:-

– Go team Russia! (I’ll post an article from Synthestech entitled ‘Achievements of Russian scientists that can change the world: from the cradle of LENR to modernity.’, detailing the beginnings and history of LENR research in Soviet Russia, it’s successes and it’s current research today)

– The experimental evidence is in plain sight for the entire world to see that this phenomena is real! I believe (as many in Mills’ camp, such as Brett Holverstott) that what  is being witnessed, observed and experimentally verified by such researchers and scientists (excess heat, unknown chemical compounds etc.) is actually ‘hydrino’ catalyst reactions taking place. They have the results, results from the past sixty years, but no-one except Mills I believe, has provided a sound theoretical model to explain such results (anomalous heat, excess heat)

I’M ALSO TERRIBLY EXCITED AT THE RESEARCH INTO BALL LIGHTNING! 😀

(and I’m also rather jealous at the Russkies for having scientists with balls, openly researching such phenomena, and a Government willing to support research… and they have the most amazing women! REAL WOMEN!… Toska!)

 

Sochi Program and coming recognition of CNT as an official science in Russia

The program for the 25th Sochi Cold Nuclear Transmutation and Ball Lightning conference looks to be stellar with some power speakers, and Alexander Parkhomov is rightly headlining with his 225 day test.
Also Anotoly Klimov is intimating a seismic shift in acceptance.

Russian scientists taking LENR seriously – accepting and researching strange radiation

THIS PRESENTATION IS EFFECTIVELY DESCRIBING ‘HYDRINO’ REACTIONS!
Leonid Urutskoev discounts Nuclear Cold Fusion, and Nuclear Fission reactions, but provides a well documented and experimentally observed case that states unequivocally  a CHEMICAL process is taking place!

Achievements of Russian scientists that can change the world: from the cradle of LENR to modernity.

People who with their discoveries destroy foundations of the society, have long been perceived as “strange and other-minded”. They aroused fear, their proofs and works were thrown to pieces by theorists and “modern minds”. There have also been a few followers who repeated experiments with the same or even greater success, moving the science to new horizons.

If we turn to history, we will find more than one confirmation of the wild desire of a crowd to reject everything unknown. As the well known saying goes “Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it”. And in those moments when science was standing on the very threshold of discovery, there have always appeared people nearby, unable to accept the fact that nature and its riddles are much wider than the common human perception abilities. Thus, many scientific discoveries have been buried together with the experimenters, and the modern scientists have to scrape up all the knowledge acquired in the past and repeat experiments of great Russian scientists and researchers, spinning the wheel of progress to unprecedented speeds.

The first discoveries in the field of cold nuclear transmutation were made by Russian scientists in the last century. One of the innovators in nuclear physics was Mikhail Solin, in 1976 when these events were taking place in Ust-Kamenogorsk city, he was a young engineer-physicist.

Charged by authorities with a mission to smelt and purify a very large batch of zirconium, Mikhail Solin witnessed a strange behavior of furnace and the metal in it, which completely contradicted all the knowledge that he had gained and tested over the years. It also did not correspond to the known phenomena in physics and chemistry in general. The power consumption of the furnace was sharply reduced, and in the central part of the melt a red-hot cone was formed. After that the cone disappeared in the alloy, forming a well similar in shape. This phenomenon was cyclical in character and occurred several times. Due to the coincidence of special circumstances, Solin witnessed transmutation. According to the plan, the workshop manager ordered to set a record mark in metal smelting (as a result of this, the mass exceeded a certain critical level) and beat the previous volume record. Usually, when smelting zirconium, only small electric furnaces were used. An equipment of such size was used for the first time.

As one would expect, after a year of Solin’s theoretical work followed by another successful experiment, filmed on camera by an invited camera-man, people “from above” closed down the new laboratory, reminding the young engineer that it was a workshop, not a laboratory.

But, despite the reluctance of management to participate in the sensational discovery, Solin continued his work and came to the following conclusion:

  • The new quantum nucleonic reactor (as Solin called it) functions as a volumetric resonator-accumulator of electromagnetic energy, which results in high efficiency — up to 85% (efficiency of a nuclear power plant is 35%);
  • As a power equipment, the known electronic furnace is used, which is 1000 times cheaper than a conventional nuclear reactor;
  • As energy fuel, environmentally friendly material, in particular zirconium, is used instead of the radioactive uranium and plutonium;
  • The simplicity of the equipment design and implementation of technological processes, reliability and ease of the power plant operation, high efficiency lead to a significant reduction in the cost of the generated electrical energy.

Apart from this, Mikhail Solin made another discovery. During a nuclear transmutation there occurs not only a colossal energy release, but also some chemical elements transform (transmute) into others. As a result, the Solin’s work was supported by the Russian Foundation for Fundamental Researches and he received a Grant №96–03–34216а.

We should also mention Anatoly Vachaev, professor of Department of Thermophysics and Energy Systems at Magnitogorsk Mining and Metallurgical Academy (Nosov Magnitogorsk State Technical University). In the course of experiments on electric discharge in water, Professor Vachaev managed to obtain a plasmoid resembling a small ball lightning. This plasmoid possessed amazing properties:

Vachaev’s reactor

1. It initiated self-sustaining synthesis reaction of elements in water.
2. The reaction was accompanied by electromagnetic radiation with a frequency of tens of megahertz and power of tens of kilowatts.
3. During synthesis, excess electrons were formed, which must be directed to the external load.

After stabilization of plasma with the help of launching, the installation (Vachaev called it “Energoniva”) was disconnected from the power unit and it could keep working for days.

“Energoniva” by Anatoly Vachaev

After the official presentation of Energoniva, all the newspapers were released with breaking headlines like “Russian scientists have learned to extract electricity and chemical elements from dirty water!”

One could expect that the Russian scientist would receive universal glory and recognition, but everything turned out in a different way. Vachaev was bothered by envious rivals and those protesting against his discovery, thereby leading the scientist to a heart attack.

The powder obtained during the experiment is stored among exhibits of the Nosov Magnitogorsk State Technical University. Young scientists have tried to recreate the Vachaev installation using his blueprints, but because of the lack of financing, the latest developments of enthusiasts lie buried in dust since the middle of 2016 somewhere in the outskirts of Stary Oskol city.

Much earlier than Vachaev, back in the 1950s, a Soviet designer of low-temperature nuclear installations Ivan Filimonenko discovered an effect of heat generation in an electrode with palladium additives during electrolysis of heavy water.

Among the outstanding achievements of Filimonenko, one can mention the creation of power plants “Topaz-1” and “Topaz-2”, which were used on satellites “Kosmos-1818” and “Kosmos-1819”. Later he developed and created an environmentally-friendly thermoemission hydrolysis power plant, which has no analogues in the whole world.

The operating time of such an installation is 5–10 years without refueling (with heavy water). In the 1960–68’s first encouraging results suitable for industrial applications were obtained. The output parameters of the electric power plant were 200 W, hydrogen and oxygen were obtained, as well as such components as helium 3, 4, tritium, oxygen 16, 17, 18, which indisputably testified the fact of obtaining thermonuclear synthesis at a temperature T = 1150 ° C.

However, instead of rewards for such an important discovery, Filimonenko was dismissed from the power plant “Krasnaya Zvezda” for political reasons, and did not finish the work he had begun.

Currently, there are many scientists engaged in nuclear transmutation and it has not sunk into oblivion, so that our descendants in the distant future will not have to attempt to decipher and recreate the blueprints. Thus, they will be able to use the already accumulated knowledge and experience, apply them in practice and increase efficiency.

Yuri Bazhytov, PhD, organizer of the Russian Conference on Cold Nuclear Transmutation

Yuri Bazhutov, well known in the LENR sphere for his work, a yearly speaker and organizer of the the 24th Russian Conference on Cold Nuclear Transmutation and Ball-Lightning (RCCNT&BL-24), developed his own reactor called “Fakel”. The power output at “Fakel-2” is 700 %.

Alexander Parkhomov, a regular participant of conferences on RCCNT&BL, presented his paper on “Cold nuclear fusion and a ball lightning” on December 25, 2014 at a seminar at the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia. Alexander Parkhomov managed to replicate the demonstration experiment of Andre Rossi! And to recreate the work of the E-CAT installation, the great Russian scientist used, mostly, some improvised means found in his summer house. Of course, such improvised materials are not enough to build and launch a large-scale, energy-intensive and heat-consuming installation. But the fact remains. All their experiments, both Bazhutov and Parkhomov, recorded on a video tape.

This represents Russian top-notch scientists as genial and surprisingly undemanding. Fortunately, the scientists do not stand still, even without any financial support from state institutions. The list of names of Russian bright minds and their achievements can go on and on — Zatelepin, Klimov, Urutskoev and many others.

But only a few could not only repeat experiments of their predecessors, but also achieve new results in the field of cold nuclear transmutation. As mentioned above, despite the fact that the method of energy generating was slightly different, absolutely all the researchers, apart from efficiency over 1000%, noticed transmutation of one chemicals into others. Moreover, in powder were found not only particles of gold and platinum, but almost the whole Mendeleev’s Periodic Table with different amounts of obtained substances.

Saveliy Kashnitsky, a news writer for “Arguments and Facts”, wrote in December 2009: “So who prevents us from adding to each atom of iron the necessary number of protons and neutrons to turn it into gold? Cold nuclear fusion (transmutation) allows to receive any amount of not only tungsten, platinum or, let’s say, rhenium, which is 10 times more expensive than gold. You can synthesize any elements of the periodic table, including those not discovered yet.”

Maria Curie was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1903 for discovery of Polonium and Radium through cold nuclear transmutation, which did not exist in the periodic table before.
Nowadays, from other scientific groups we can single out the “Synthestech” team, who were not only able to repeat and comprehend all the previous scientific achievements of LENR, but also went further. They have developed their own “know-how”, thanks to which in the nearest future medicine, environmental cleaning, pharmacology and production industry will make a huge step forward. They will accomplish what the whole world community could only dream of 5–10 years ago.

ARTICLE – State “by hydrino”: the energy revolution that we missed (Center for Strategic Assessment and Forecasts – Russian Scientists)

The following article is taken from Center for Strategic Assessment and forecasts (13-05-2014). As usual with the Russkies, the translation is little shaky… but they know what’s going on!

“The centre of strategic estimations and forecasts (further – the Center) is created in February, 2012 on the basis of creative group of the Russian scientists, is the Russian non-governmental organisation – the exploratory centre in the field of foreign policy and a security policy. The bulk of works of the centre (especially in the field of information security, problems of the informational society and modern military art) is connected with activity of one of founders of the Center, Dr. Grinjaev Sergey Nikolaevich. The legal status of the Center – the independent noncommercial organisation. It is founded by physical persons, citizens of the Russian Federation. The centre is the network scientifically-methodical organisation, and in the capacity of the basic form of the activity uses work in virtual network communities of experts.”

State “by hydrino”: the energy revolution that we missed

centreruss

This event was long-awaited. Back in 2005 the scientific and the business community is disturbed by reports that a Randy mills, the head of the company Blacklight Power (BLP) has opened a new, virtually inexhaustible source of cheap energy, associated with the transfer of hydrogen in a new, previously unknown to science low-energy state called “hydrino”. “Financial times” in an article entitled “the Atomic bomb, rassypuha scientific world” is pretty accurately reflected the effect of the work of mills. He swung not only on energy, proposing a method of obtaining energy at a price one hundred times lower than the currently existing, but on the very foundations of modern physics and quantum mechanics.
“Nonsense,” said influential skeptics, “fractional quantum States of hydrogen atom”. The scientific world did not accept the work of mills, says Wikipedia. And yet to dismiss the sensation could not – after three years of his revolutionary theory was confirmed by practice: was built the first prototype of the reactor that worked on “fuel” from water, and in couple of months Blacklight Power has attracted investment of $ 60 million. In October 2008, “wall Street journal” told about a new company’s success – were built two reactors, 1 and 50 kilowatts, which have been successfully tested at the University of Rowan. Report on the testing of the plant, struck the scientific world, went to “si-EN-EN”.
What happened next, everyone knows the economic crisis broke out, and the young company had hard times. From 30 people in the company (which is more correctly called a private research Institute), left 22. However, as time went on, and appeared more and more work and development confirming the opening of the mills. Rose firms operating in the same direction: from California Brillouin, Leonardo Corp of Italian Andrea Rossi and Defkalion the Greek.

From cold fusion to LENR and hydrino

All of them, though not offer a “fuel from water” work in the same direction, which we often (and mistakenly) referred to as “cold fusion, and only sometimes – the English acronym LENR, “low energy nuclear reactions”, or “cold fusion”, i.e. “cold fusion”. After Fleischmann and Pons announced their discovery of the possibilities of cold fusion reactions, it has been 25 years, and much has changed – came a better understanding and more accurate terminology, and, finally, commercially viable technologies.
I must say, the enterprises working in the field of LENR has made remarkable progress. If the current sources of energy require significant investments, fixed costs, environmentally harmful, and organize themselves around powerful groups of specific interests, new sources of energy much cheaper and safer. For example, E-Cat Andrea Rossi with a capacity of 5 KW can fit on the table without emitting any greenhouse gases or radioactive waste and runs on fuel element, the size of the battery that should be replaced every weather.
Leonardo Corp recently sold the license to produce their plants firm Industrial Heat involved in the introduction of new technologies. In a special press release this company, issued January 24, says that the world needs a new, clean and efficient source of cheap energy. This technology will improve the standard of living in developing countries, and reduce pressure on the environment. “Our goal is to make this technology widely available.”
Competitors of Andrea Rossi also does not stand still. The California company Brillouin has signed several multimillion contracts for supply of its installations, including in South Korea. Given the well-known ability of residents of South-East Asia to adopt foreign technology, with no doubt protected by copyright, and energy hunger in China, the consequences of such transactions it is easy to predict.
However, despite all the successes of alternative energy, the scientific mainstream “in emphasis does not see” new technologies – the leading scientific journals of the West is still flatly refuse to accept for publication a scientific article, going in the wrong direction. This, in turn, increases konspirologichesky sentiment in public and suspicion of the existence of oil and gas mafia, actively lobbying for their interests among the scientific community. And these suspicions must be said, are not unfounded…
And again – the bombshell: BLP announced the demonstration on 28 January a new installation. At this time, the reactor power is a good 10 Megawatts, enough to light 10 thousand apartments. The orchestra presents a device installed and how it works. Published and patents to develop (they are in Russian language – “Method and device for converting matter into energy and energy into matter”, (Patent RU 2180458)).
The description of the essence of a patent can cause stuttering not only by professors of physics, but also school teachers of chemistry. “The invention relates to methods and apparatus for releasing energy from hydrogen atoms (molecules) as their electrons are impacted with a view to their transfer to lower energy levels, with smaller radii (smaller values of the major and minor semi-axes), rather than in the ground state (the so-called “hydrino” – ed.), by providing energy sinks or methods to remove energy resonant with the frequency emitted by the electron energy, with the aim to stimulate these transitions according to modern atomic theory.”
Whether the authors of the patent of the Russian poor inventors would not see them patent, as their ears. But Western secured and uncles had to make concessions, Tisnov in the text is completely unnecessary here, “according to modern atomic theory.” That’s the problem – in the modern theory of “hydrino” mills is not fit. He is the Creator of its own. In this theory it stands out among the theoretical developments of the creators of LENR technology. Apparently, the reaction in which the plants operate mills are not even to low-energy nuclear as a peculiar class of strong chemical reactions that were previously unknown.

Portrait of “Einstein of the 21st century”

It is impossible not to sympathize with the skeptics: shrug mills did not succeed because he is a prominent theoretical physicist. In 1999 he published a fundamental work on quantum mechanics – “unified theory of classical quantum mechanics”, and in 2011 – an impressive three-volume “the United theory of classical physics” (although it is not translated into Russian, but is in the public domain). However, when you cannot refute, it is possible not to pay attention – his work has the scientific world is trying hard not to notice.
The mills theory does not introduce any exotic essence of the “Higgs boson”. In fact, it relies on one new thing – the idea of the electron, which considers not point wave-particle, and particle of an infinite number of rotating spheres. How here not to remember worn in Soviet times, Lenin said that the electron is as inexhaustible as the atom. Amazing, but true – since Lenin’s idea of the electron has not changed. Starting from this modest starting point, and gradually developing it, a new theory solves a lot of problems, pursuing physics for decades – the so-called problem of the energy balance of the Sun, the problem of dark matter, and previously inexplicable moments in the spectra of radiation of atoms. Finally, the theory of mills restores to quantum mechanics the principle of causality, ridding it of the theory of probability and become literally a byword of corpuscular-wave dualism.
The prediction of a new, virtually inexhaustible source of cheap energy, it is a bonus of the new theory – but what! The value obtained when the hydrogen in hydrino energy is about 100 times lower than traditional technology, and the fuel source is ordinary water.
The Randall mills as little like a self-taught – he is a man with three degrees (the medic, chemist and electrical engineer) the most prestigious American universities – Harvard and mit. Definitely, he is one of the most knowledgeable people in the industry.
Last, but not least, it’s a human quality. To be honest, many prominent scientists and inventors were a people with a complex character that prevented them to realize their ideas. Fortunately, Randall mills was a man of friendly and sociable, and thanks to the Board of Directors of BLP gathered brilliant professionals with impeccable reputation. Among them – Michael Jordan, former CEO of Westinghouse, and Shelby brewer, chief nuclear scientist in the Reagan administration.
Unfortunately, in the perception of the scientific community even the most fruitful theories are no miracles – as was noted by Thomas Kuhn, theories replace each other only with the change of generations of scientists themselves. As science strives for novelty, in fact, no one really likes revolutionary theories. Given that the book mills theory, outlining the hypothesis of the existence of hydrino, was released in 1992, and experimental confirmation – in 2008, I would venture to suggest that at least a minimal chance for the Nobel prize he will appear not earlier than years through five.
The consequences of the energy revolution
Even with the big delay, but the information about breakthrough in the field of energy technology and entered the post-Soviet space. On 12 January published an open letter to a prominent journalist Maxim Kalashnikov President Putin, “We need nuclear project-2”.
“We will try to outline the threat to the Russian Federation of development in the world of this new “pocket” nuclear energy LENR. Do it for yourself, for your brains, citizen Putin, government officials and “academics”, count we cannot”, he writes.
In a rather colorful expressions Kalashnikov paints a picture of what is happening, coming to the conclusion that the coming “crash of the oil economy means the collapse and most dangerous crisis of countries such as Russia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia and other Gulf monarchies. (In Russia on the collapse of “Gazprom” and oil companies will overlap the collapse of Rosatom). Dramatically poorer Islamic world, will cease feeding his extremism and terrorism oil sheikhs. In the Islamic world will start a split, catching a dangerous distemper, it will start to collapse entire countries. Russia, which has sharply reduced budget, can also fall apart, clearly having lost Ukraine and Belarus”.
Note one caveat – Kalashnikov does not speak about the opportunities physics mills, and it not only radically cheaper energy technologies, and new materials, engines, transportation, communications (including underwater), arms (ultraviolet lasers), heavy duty battery, corrosion-resistant coating, a milestone in the development of electronics and space exploration.
And that’s not all. Following the scientific and technological boom and economic boom is inevitable, and powerful social shifts. The energy is power. Decentralization of energy sources threatens not only the oil and gas mafia, it threatens to deprive the ruling elite rather significant part of its political power. The energy revolution will inevitably lead to social revolution.
It seems that it is the last circumstance most of all frightens the ruling circles – how else to explain that the last quarter of a century the development of new technologies was carried out in the absence of state funding and the active opposition of the scientific establishment? But if the republics of the former Soviet Union the development of technology and science was able to completely stop and to exsanguinate in the United States this has not happened – a quarter of a century “corruption” resulted in large-scale “underground fire” that threatens to bubble up, and absorbing the scientific establishment and the ruling elite.

‘Let There Be Light’ – 2017 documentary/comedy film on international fusion research. (ITER, fusion and the global energy crisis)

“A star is drawing on some vast reservoir of energy by means unknown to us. This reservoir can scarcely be other than the subatomic energy which, it is known exists abundantly in all matter; we sometimes dream that man will one day learn how to release it and use it for his service.” – Lord Arthur Stanley Eddington 1920

fusionsun1

Let There Be Light is an award winning 2017 documentary film investigating sciences century long endeavour in pursuit of ‘Fusion Energy’. The film focuses on the multi-billion dollar ITER project in France, telling the stories of a number of scientists involved.

Obviously to those of us familiar with the work of Dr Randell Mills, ‘hydrino’ energy and GUT-CP… we understand that the ITER project is a complete waste of time, 😀 and thus,  the documentary film is more of a tragic comedy!
(‘the greatest comedy of the century!’)

On a serious note, the film does highlight the necessity for our species to find a clean and abundant energy source, that will sustain our civilisation in the long term. As one scientist says “If we don’t crack fusion, we are doomed”, “I think we’re going hundred miles per hour towards a brick wall, and nobody seems to be paying much attention.”

Below is an excerpt from a 2009 BBC Horizon documentary entitled ‘Can We Make a Star On Earth?’ featuring Professor Brian Cox and Dr Saul Griffith (whom I will post about in the future). The clip shows a series of calculations made regarding providing energy to an increasing global population by 2035 by replacing fossil fuels. After watching, it soon becomes apparent that humankind has no other option expect to discover and utilise a brand new energy source. Dr Randell Mills and his team at Brilliant Light Power have discovered and harnessed that energy source in the form of ‘hydrino energy’, and the sooner both the worlds scientific community and the worlds Governments realise that it not only exists, but is ready to be distributed globally, the more likely we are in avoiding the eventual global energy crisis that looms over our civilisation.

Renewable energy and the Future (Some calculations)…

A number of experts and investigators have noted that the calculations regarding the energy input of ITER, the power amplifications stated and the deceptions involved, means that the project is the biggest waste of money and scientific minds in modern history. Essentially ITER is the biggest scientific scam in modern history, and will NOT lead to wither a breakthrough in scientific discovery or a new source of energy…

The ITER Power Amplification Myth
“The International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) is the largest and most expensive science experiment on Earth today. Public outreach for the experimental fusion reactor, under the direction of Laban Coblentz, the head of the ITER communications office, has led journalists and the public to believe that, when completed, the reactor will produce 10 times more power than goes into it.
It will do no such thing. The $22 billion reactor is designed to produce only 1.6 times more thermal power than it consumes in electric power. Using a more conservative calculation, the reactor will lose more power than it produces. The planned output power of the reactor has been reported correctly, but the input power for the reactor has been widely reported, incorrectly, as 50 megawatts. The actual input power value, rarely discussed publicly, will be significantly larger.”
