Mills Comments on July 21st Blacklight Power Demonstration

E-Cat World readers may remember that on July 21st (yesterday) there was a demonstration scheduled by Blacklight Power showing the latest developments of their technologies to selected invitees. There was nothing posted yesterday that I could find, but ECW reader artefact has found some comments by BLP CEO Randell Mills on the Society for Classical Physics Yahoo message board where he sometimes comments.

Asked by a group member yesterday about how the demonstration went, Mills responded:

It was AWESOME!
Showed new technology for the first time. Gave timeline for commercial-type unit.

In response to a request for a short summary of what took place at the demo, Mills wrote:

The main aspects were the presentation of the complete system design and a unit that demonstrates those elements of the fast ignition and regeneration, and optical distribution and photovoltaic conversion systems.

Based on work of our engineering firms we are pushing to have a 100 kW electric,field testable power generator in 16 to 18 weeks.

I would imagine that as in the past, BLP will have recorded the event and will publish it on their website sometime in the near future, but we have a little idea now of what took place.

Thanks, artefact!

    Have to say, BLP demo was dissapointing again. Those systems had high voltage and current capable units connected, yet he did not display any voltage and current data to avail. Just showed the explosien techniques again. I need to know how much current it draws and how high voltage it needs. Damn pointless demo.

    The BLP is burning aluminum in a water vapor causing Thermolysis, the splitting of the water into hydrogen and oxygen and burning the hydrogen as well as the aluminum.

    For anyone doubting the power of burning aluminum and water together I offer the following video.

    Here’s a ~70kw concentrated solar system which uses 40% efficient triple junction cells at ~500 suns.

    Note this a real life (as opposed to fantasy world) device that’s in service today.
    A Tesla supercharger requires 100kw
    A Tesla slow charge from home current 10kw
    Does it look to you like this device will fit in the trunk of an XC-70?

      The area of the shown devices seams to be large because they are facing the sun, 1sun.
      500sun would be something quite smaller. Could it that the thickness of these devices is
      due to optics that concentrate the 1sun to 500sun e.g. shrink 23x in both dimensions. Also of cause the SunCell is a fantasi atm. There is absolutely nothing like it that we can compare to. This makes it difficult to judge and can easily give a knee jerk feeling of unreality.

    I think if I was validating I would look at product and read previous validations. I don’t see how wording should be interpreted as signs of fraud. I think the statement is clear and concise and I would likely repeat it in yet another validation if I was assigned to it.

  • Ophelia Rump

    Mills device is a glorified HHO burner. He is out of the running for LENR.

    None of the players have the validation as of yet that we would like to see. Why Is That? Ask Main Stream Science.

    Ahh, MSS, Would you take a look at this? NO! It’s Junk Science.
    Well, Have you looked into the progress of the last 25 years. The replications, the reports, ETC,… No! Nor do WE intend to. It’s Pseudoscience and is not deserving of our attention.

    We all need to keep this in mind whether it’s Mills, Rossi or Whoever. This is a tough field to be involved in. You don’t have to be a fraud or scammer. It is assumed. And anyone who would even give it notice is Guilty by Association. Validation is hard to come by.

    You want to convince me. Make me a cup of Tea. And after I have drank it, Make me another cup of Tea. Just Kidding. It is still Pseudoscience!

    As to Mill’s SunCell. I think it has merit. Some of the numbers tossed around, I think taken out of context. They vary according to scale. As to Mill’s timeline. I would laugh. However, he has included his own disclaimer. Thus, I will not. I see many Engineering issue’s ahead.

    Note: All LENR researchers are overly optimistic. As In- WOW, Glad that’s accomplished. It’s smooth sailing from here on out.
    Yeah—-, If I had a dollar every time I mistakenly made that statement. I’d have more money then Bill Gates.

      Drink, drank, drunk.

      Drink it. He drank it. After I have drunk it.

      Sorry! I could not resist, how often to you get the chance?

  • Daniel Maris

    Let us pray:

    “Oh Lord though we know it to be highly unlikely, we beseech you it be that Randell Mills is not giving us the run-around like for the last 20 years and actually has something here, even though we know that is most unlikely.”

    • Ophelia Rump

      Oh he does have something he does! I am now a Mills believer, he has an HHO / aluminum burner. See my posting below. This is not LENR but it could win a science fair!

  • Daniel Maris

    OK, you’ve proved your point. You can murder the English language more than Rossi does. Well done, Mr PTaker. Please now take your schtick somewhere else. And I say that politely.
