Bob Greenyer of the MFMP Invited to Moscow by Parkhomov, Feb 26th. [Update #2: Bob Arrives in Moscow]

UPDATE#2 (Feb 25, 2015)

Bob Greenyer just posted this comment:

Hi All,
I have finally reached my accommodation in the centre of Moscow. Everything went smoothly but I am completely exhausted – tomorrow I have to present to around 100 experimentalists and still need to finish the presentation. Soon, I will rest.
The experiment is definitely on for Friday, Parkhomov said it took him the usual two days of preparation to m ake the reactor.

UPDATE#1 (Feb 19, 2015)

Bob Greenyer posted this today:

“Accommodation booked. Looks increasingly like we will be running an experiment together on the 27th.”


This is an interesting update from Bob Greenyer:

A. Parkhomov has invited me to come 26th Feb.

I have spent quite a lot of time over the past few days trying to do the ground work to get a Visa. Tomorrow, I have to big time commit and it will take me a further 2 days next week in the UK to get the paperwork organised.
Anyone who has specific things they want captured, let us know at [email protected]

This sounds like a great opportunity — I think that there will be lots of interest in this visit, if Bob can get everything organized visa-wise. For English speakers it will be especially interesting, since a lot of what we have seen so far has come from translations. I hope Bob’s Russian is up to snuff! (Or at least he has someone on hand to translate).

Good luck, Bob — hope the red tape is not too much to get through.

    Forgive my ignorance, but I did not see (m.b. just missed) the explanation about the way how exactly the heat is measured in Parkhomov experiment. Also are any data about how calibration was made?

  • Bob Greenyer

    Starting to lay out an account of the experiment here

    • Josh G

      Wow, I can see you writing it as you go. Now that really is ‘live open science’ !! Amazing.

    New update, regarding the two changes made in the experiment.

    “But you are offensive many times”
    John: You are the first one to tell me that, but it is possible, depending what and to who I’m supposed to be offensive to?

    Concerning your posts,I’m unable to judge if you have been “offensive” yourself in the past, as clicking on your name doesn’t show anything. Hope you have nothing to hide.
    Reading your post above:
    “the month of March will finally be the beginning of the rest of our days”
    Should I say that is a profound constatation, my friends from the church tell me that every day…. (No offence)
    Anyway, I wish you the best in your new endeavor of Low energy nanoscale reactions. Give us a link when you can.

  • Alain Samoun

    “The way the data is capture simply does not allow for a real time understanding and therefore, one can only determine the result after collecting the data together and analysing it post run”
    Hum… How to explain that? Recording live temperature from a TC is straight forward, I can only understand analysing a post run data to determine a COP…

    Great job! Send thanks to your family from a peanut.

  • Bob Greenyer

    First update.

    Need to spend time with my family! Will start laying everything out tomorrow.

      Oh Bob, I was hoping for so much better. Flu? Really? Just sounds like another attempt to stall.

      If you were not there for the completion of the test how can you draw any conclusions about the experiment?

      • Bob Greenyer

        rats123, there is a lot of new information to share, photos, video and insight into the experiment and preparation. Please, be patient. I wish we could have afforded 10 people to go, but we could not. I wish I could have stayed for a month, but I have to feed my family and my partner is expecting our daughter any day now, I was not willing to passover my own childs birth. I can assure you, most of the information that could be shared will be, being there for even a little longer would have provided marginal benefit.

        As for sickness, I was trying to be desecrate, Alexanders wife was really ill, I saw that, he had to leave the seminar to go tend to her the previous evening, please, have some respect, he is retired – and as I will share, he is both an experienced and accomplished scientist and working in the only environment he could, which is a difficult one on many fronts.

        • Josh G

          Bob, rat’s comment made me angry. Your patient and dignified reply is a sign of your integrity and far more than rat’s entitled, disrespectful and totally inappropriate comment deserved.

          From the rest of us, best wishes to you and your wife on your new child as we *patiently* wait for you to make time in your busy schedule to share with us news from your latest selfless and pioneering endeavors.

      • EEStorFanFibb

        gee whiz rats. if you believe in karma you should send MFMP a good whack of cash to make up for that ignorant post. lol

  • Somebody wake Bob up. He’s had enough sleep.

      You’re forgeting the Jet lag. 🙂

  • peter gluck

    Safe trip, dear Bob!
    A 5-7 words report will be OK especially if you call “excess heat” “it”


  • Bob Greenyer

    Given todays events, I want to keep a low profile. Just going to sleep ( it is 3 AM here ) an utterly exhausting day. LOTs to share… I have to be up in a few hours to catch my flight.

      Thanks Bob — safe trip home.

    • Patrick Ellul

      @bobgreenyer:disqus We can’t wait to hear all about it. Safe trip home.

    • I hope he has not overslept 🙂

    Semi-OT: High tension in Moscow —

    Russia opposition politician Boris Nemtsov shot dead

    • Ged

      Yeah, this is worrisome news. Something bad is going down on the political world stage, and this is just one piece of the growing puzzle.

      Stay safe, Bob.
