Defkalion Stirs Expectations

September 24, 2012

The following comment can be found on the Defkalion forum. I post it because the statement is specific and the claim has a short timescale (next weeks?) before it will be obviously true or not. Will this come to anything? Given past performance, I am not optimistic but hope to be proven wrong. If so, and if the results are positive and the testers credible, I will happily give a cautious cheer. Meanwhile – as ever – we wait.

 

Dear drew,
we do not know where Sterling Allen got this not-even-close-to-real info on his last report. Please be so kind to ask him as he has not contacted us since last March, when he payed a short visit in one of our labs.

Since last April, we conducted successfully 21 official tests many days each, with the presence and under the protocols agreed with very well know international labs, using also their instrumentation. The last two such official test runs only, from September 5th to September 14th, lasted in total more than 55 hours starting/stopping the reaction and controlling reactor’s performance at will. These two tests were the last official we conducted in Greece with our R5 lab prototype reactors and the present calorimetric setup, whilst the next have been scheduled to take place in Vancouver in the new R6 version pre-industrial single reactor in Hyperion complete prototypes, following in general the specs we have released already.

An official announcement from our company within the next weeks will inform you the peer-reviewed journals where the results of all these tests so far will be published by the independent testers.
Thank you for your attention
DGT

    In the face of the latest fusion failure, this is a very puffy piece from the Chronicle:

    But a new report by the U.S. Department of Energy, which oversees the Livermore lab, now concludes that the probability that National Ignition Facility leaders can meet this deadline is “extremely low.”

    The report, summarizing the views of more than a dozen outside experts with access to classified insider data, says facility scientists have made progress in resolving some technical problems in replicating the effects of a hydrogen bomb blast. But other crucial and difficult experiments, the government experts say, are only half to one-third complete.”

    We actually pity the NIF people at LLNL. 500tW pulse and ZERO ignition. ZERO useful energy in 60 years, at a cost of now $273B worldwide.

      Hey GW, isn’t there some website about hot fusion where you can rant and rave amongst people who are actually interested in the topic?

    Remember this:

    “An official announcement from our company within the next weeks will inform you the peer-reviewed journals where the results of all these tests so far will be published by the independent testers.”

    Posted a little over 2 weeks ago at the top of this page? When someone says in the next weeks, how many do they mean? GreenWin, can you give us the scoop on what is holding them up?
