    Wow. Lenr forum is ripping itself apart today. I wonder what happened….

    Deer Man in Charge of shipping. I ordered my Lenr 5 years ago and still have not received a bill or shipping date. Please advise.

    Does someone understand what this is about? I hear Nickel and LENR…

    President Trump’s 2018 Budget: 3 Things Defense Investors Should Hate About It
    https://www.fool.com/investing/2017/03/24/president-trumps-2018-budget-3-things-defense-inve.aspx

    There are also more than a few line items in President Trump’s proposed fiscal 2018 budget that investors in aerospace and defense might not like.

    Zero dollars for ARPA-E
    With an annual budget of only $350 million, ARPA-E helps provide seed capital to incubate “transformational energy projects that can be meaningfully advanced with a small investment over a defined period of time.” In addition to batteries, ARPA-E is helping develop better electric transmission technologies to improve the nation’s power grid and eliminate blackouts. Why, it’s even working on the holy grail of energy — development of a cold-fusion reactor to create an endless supply of free energy for the nation, a technology Lockheed Martin has also shown interest in. If ARPA-E succeeds in making cold fusion a reality, America could free itself from dependence on OPEC oil, and from the need to spend so much ensuring steady access to that oil.

      Lockheed Martin is not working on cold fusion/LENR.
      Just a variation of Hot Fusion of advanced nuclear power plants small scale…

    In 1997, physicist Rainer Plaga wrote a paper suggesting an
    experiment to prove parallel universes exist. It was never tried.
    Marshall Barnes has now executed his own specific tests in Grandview
    Heights, OH, that achieve the same, incredible goal.
    New, Similar Experiments Dramatically Achieve Rainer Plaga Suggestion To Prove Parallel Universes
    In Marshall’s experiment, various laser pulses are fired toward a 2 way
    mirror acting as a beam splitter, sending the reflection beam toward a
    side wall detection area, and the beam that continues, called the
    transmission beam, encounters a fan. The fan acts as a high speed
    shutter, blocking some of the pulses and allows others to continue,
    hitting the back wall. A laptop video camera captures all action, making
    it possible to see results, frame by frame. However, there are times
    when no laser is on and clearly, a laser spot is seen on the side wall
    as if it had been reflected there.

      The question becomes: Is Goodenough good enough?

        Morning Roger, good to see you back, I have missed you 🙂
