Blacklight Power has issued a press release to schedule a demonstration next Tuesday January 28th, 2014, of their process to produce abundant cheap power from the hydrogen atoms in water that will be used as a fuel. Dr. Randell Mills the scientist behind Blacklight Power has long claimed and made available his classical theory of physics that predicts hydrogen atoms can undergo a catalyst-induced transition to one of many possible lower energy states with the electron bound closer to the proton. According to Dr. Mills, the electron forms an orbitsphere that is a fluid spinning shell of zero thickness surrounding the nucleus with forces in balance equivalent to a pressure of 20,000 atmospheres. Catalysts under the right conditions can make the orbitsphere shrink to 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5 etc. of the diameter of a normal hydrogen atom, called a hydrino or “little hydrogen”, with a progressive increase in the energy released compared to the normal hydrogen ground state. The energy available from each hydrogen atom in conversion to a hydrino is much greater than would be obtained by burning the same amount of hydrogen gas, but is much less than the energies involved in nuclear processes such as fusing two hydrogen nuclei into helium.
The latest process apparently uses a solid fuel containing at least a catalyst and water that is subjected to a very high electrical current, 10,000 amps, although the current is apparently produced by a small DC voltage of only 6 volts. The hydrogen in water undergoes transition to hydrinos releasing a large amount of energy and converting the solid fuel into a supersonic plasma. Blacklight Power propose (but have not yet built) a ten MegaWatt power reactor contained on a footprint of one square foot. The plasma produced by the reactor would expand through a superconducting magnet which would produce DC electric power in two electrodes placed orthogonally to both the plasma flow and the magnetic field. Blacklight have released high speed video of the plasma production and it is likely this is what will be demonstrated on Tuesday together with Dr. Mills explanation of his theory and experiments that verify the signatures of the resultant hydrinos.
To say this may be a huge deal is a gross understatement. If Dr. Mills is correct and energy can be produced from water, it changes almost everything about the way energy is produced and consumed, and would force both the energy and transport industries to undergo an almost instant revolution. It would also effectively solve the problem of global warming caused by fossil fuel use which would be a happy circumstance. Then there is physics itself that would undergo a revolution, assuming Mills is also correct about the theory, and has not just stumbled across a hitherto unknown nuclear process. There are major ramifications to the theory, if true, notably a solution for the problem of dark matter (hydrinos), whole branches of novel hydrino chemistry to be explored, the possibility of calculating molecular structure exactly, a possible novel fifth force, cosmological predictions that match the accelerating expansion of the universe and more.
Blacklight Power have had a reputation of being perennially 18 months away from producing a physically and commercially viable system. All the claims of excess energy have involved tiny real energies that require considerable scaling up to be useful. Let us hope that the forthcoming demo is convincing enough that the naysayers will not be able to make their usual claims of trickery.
