Communication from Ruggero Santilli of Thunder Fusion Corporation.

Since we have recently been discussing the work and ideas of Dr. Ruggero Santilli, Chief Scientist and founder of Thunder Fusion,Inc., who claims to have developed “controlled nuclear fusions without radiation”, I decided to get in touch with him and see if he could answer some questions about his technology.

Dr. Santilli responded to my inquiry promptly, but explained, “I am extremely sorry but our Board of Directors prohibits me from answering questions at this moment since we are in the process of public listing of our stock, as I hope you understand.”

He suggested that people interested in finding out more should refer to the Technology section of the Thunder Fusion site, particularly to the refereed journal articles listed there.

Dr. Santilli also mentioned that he would be making presentations about his technology and the mathematics behind it at the 12th International Conference of Numerical Analysis and Applied Mathematics to be held 22-28 September 2014, in Rhodes, Greece. At this conference, he will be holding ‘The Fifth International Workshop on Santilli Iso-, Geno-, and Hyper-Mathematics,’ and the ‘First International Workshop on on Nuclear Fusions Without Harmful Radiations’.

    Having some insight in spectroscopy, I am not very impressed by the good Professors ideas and measurements of the iso shifts. He should perhaps do some background study about spectral line broadening mechanisms, gases under pressure and varying temperatures, convection, Rayleigh scattering, atmospheric water vapour lines, the accuracy of the instruments and the calibration of the wavelength scale, etc, etc.

    Also I got serious Keshe vibes, as this guys has a Foundation like Keshe, “The R. M. Santilli Foundation, LLC”. Search that and see what you find. Suffice to say, he did not sell his iso-shift idea to me.

    Trying not let my judgement be swayed by that impression, I still had a hard time taking the other video of his intermediate controlled nuclear fusion very seriously.

    But hey, if he sets up a device, a third party group to validate, who knows…

    Meanwhile I will watch what the other guys are doing, those who – in my mind – are making up the real teams on the field.
    By the looks of it, they are keeping busy.

      If you are experienced in spectroscopy, what do you think about the UV (or soft X-ray) spectra that were found in Mills’ experiments? There is no doubt about the existence of a strong UV radiation, since Thomas Wrubel, after he had studied a Mills reactor in 2001, has reported that he got heavily sun burnt. But could the spectra possibly be explained in a way other than Mills has proposed?

      • Andreas Moraitis

        I did not want to say that a sunburn is a scientific proof. Moreover, it can be caused by other types of radiation, like soft beta radiation, for instance. But I think together with the measurements it’s a convincing sign that there is something significant going on.

    A company with no working commercial product making an IPO sends up red flags for me. Particularly when they are unwilling to discuss technology. My thought is that you have a board of directors and investors who are panicking and want to recover their investments and run.

    Yes, the web site execution is poor, but consider the upside of R. M. Santilli’s outfit. Santilli is an actual physicist and high level mathematician. who was treated poorly by Harvard for espousing the view that GR and QM were not complete. He then went on to build a successful waste treatment company. The reactor that he has built has done something no other competitor has done: demonstrate boiling water and steam at volume and pressure. Rossi seems to have done so, but no we can’t see it. DFK cooled the jet under a stream of water. Now the economics. Heavy water is at a price of $300/ kg. , whilst Ni is at $14/kg. But consider that the effluent of the Santilli reactor is nitrogen from the reaction, with oxygen from the electrolysis of the heavy water. The electrolysis tax would only be 1/100 of the reactor out put. What’s not to like?

    I’m sorry but I can’t take a company seriously that can’t even spell its own name right on its joke of a home page.

    One common thread throughout all cold fusion work (exception Blacklight) is the utterly horrifying web site execution.

      Yes, I noticed that!

      The pics look good but it would be nice to know for instance what energy output is being claimed.
