Update from the MFMP on New Experiment and a Prize Awarded

I received the following update via email from the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project which I thought would be of interest to E-Cat World readers:

Hi all,
Just a quick note to say that a live dummy experiment has been started in Minnesota and right when we started to get to the kind of temperatures we would expect a Celani wire to “load” at, we have seen the pressure rise turn to a drop even as the cell temperature continues to rise.
We are going to hold the cell in this range until it levels off and the edge up the power. You can comment on the experiment here:
and follow the live data here:
click on the “view” button on the left hand side for “Powder Calorimeter 1″
NOTE: This is NOT with the 10 nm QSI Nano powder as tested by Dr. Brian S. Ahern, this is with some old, comparatively cheap powder HUG had laying around well outside the size range that Brian identified and tested. It was decided to test with this to begin with.

Happy watching
MFMP Facilitators
Also, there’s a post on the MFMP’s quantumheat.org web site announcing that MFMP team member Mathieu Valat has been awarded a share in the Antonio Meneghetti, Scientific and Humanistic Research Foundation’s physics prize for his contributions in the area of Live Open Science that the MFMP is following in their LENR research.

Mathieu was awarded around $10,000 which will help him continue his research operations in his lab in France in the coming year. Congratulations to Mathieu and the MFMP team!

    “Technology leadership is not defined by patents, which history has
    repeatedly shown to be small protection indeed against a determined
    competitor, but rather by the ability of a company to attract and
    motivate the world’s most talented engineers.”
    ~Elon Musk

    This appears to be rather a form of ‘hot’ fusion on a laboratory scale. You cannot easily extract relevant amounts of energy from such a device.

    Anyway, this is a nice demo:

    There’s a Farnsworth, who claims kinship to the inventor, who has posted a few times on various LENR forums. He claims to have special knowledge on LENR and told Rossi that, but to my knowledge he’s never revealed his secrets. He lives in Europe.

    I’m not sure if the following inventor is the same David Farnsworth:

      He has posted on this forum in the past. I had asked him for a link to his web site and he posted it. Pix of lots of test equipment. He was involved in earthquake prediction I believe.

  • Robert Ellefson

    Congratulations, Mathieu! A well-deserved honor, to be sure.

    It remains to be seen if capitalism will morph into something viable, or die.
    The death of the financial engine of society does not sound like a pleasant thing to witness. The inevitable alternative to the continuation of capitalism is that one man will own the word and everything in it, this reminds me of North Korea for some reason. Greed created the problems in capitalism and greed may yet murder capitalism in it’s sleep.

    I hate to have to say I told you so,lol congrats go to Mathieu, and MF MP, what a great group, thanks guys.

    I just checked the Farnsworth Fusor and EMC2,very interesting,Dr .Brussard work on this.The US navy supported them for years at pretty low levels like a million or two a year.Now they are asking for private money of 30 Mill.It’s very interesting,not sure if there is anything linked to LENR except both are unproven ways to produce reliable power,there is more than one way to skin a cat.LPP and EMC2 both wanted to do p-B11 fusion but since D-T fusions are easier EMC2 will probably go that way even though Tritium is expensive.

    • Maxfield Q Norse

      There seem to me to be striking similarities in the approach to Focus Fusion.

  • Chris I

    Do they mean it absorbs so much gas as to make the pressure drop?

  • James Thomas

    Sometimes I feel like I have died on gone to hell as the corruption, greed and warfare seems so prevalent. But then there are honest, open and caring people like the MFMP team who strive to make things better — and who save me from slicing my wrists.

  • Curbina

    I’m really pleased that he won that prize, because is a direct recognition of LENR as valid science, which helps to build momentum.

    These guys and Rossi are going to put fringe and frontier science in a new respected light. Which center or mainstream scientists have neglected and rejected for so long.

    • Fortyniner

      I hope they turn out to be pioneers of an entirely new way of conducting scientific research. As establishment dogma, corporate profits and political agendas have taken control of nearly all current research, we certainly need initiatives like theirs. All kudos to MFMP.

  • GreenWin

    Congratulations Mathieu! And to MFMP for continued brilliance.
