George Miley is poised to harness electricity from LENR without a Rankine or Carnot cycle and utilize it to power Aneutronic Fusion Spacecraft.  Coincidentally NASA released its latest posting about LENR technology on its Climate Change site. NASA sees LENR as the solution to global warming and planned space missions yet unrealized.

Colonization of the solar system is the goal. (Deep Space Industries) and (Planetary Resources Inc.) WOW!

I’m also excited to share with you the latest video in the following climate conversation series, The Price of Carbon. This short video, narrated by comedian and musician Reggie Watts, underscores the high cost we are all already paying for carbon pollution.

Posted by Maggie L. Fox – President & CEO – The Climate Reality Project

“From Superstorm Sandy to soaring temperatures in Australia, ongoing drought that has parched more than 60% of the U.S., and flooding from hurricanes around the world, we are experiencing the consequences of our carbon pollution now. We are paying the cost of these dirty weather disasters and other climate impacts through taxes, medical bills, and insurance rates (to name just a few). It’s past time to talk about the real cost of carbon pollution and to take action so that the polluters are paying their fair share.”

“In the spirit of moving forward to solve the climate crisis, it’s time to jump-start a real carbon conversation. Watch the video. Share it with your friends. Be part of the carbon conversation.”

Be sure to mention that Cold Fusion research is NOW emerging as LENR Engineering.

NASA-NIAC 2001 PHASE I RESEARCH GRANT

Final Research Activity Report (SEPTEMBER 2012) P.I.: Alfonso G. Tarditi
Collaborators: John H. Scott, George H. Miley - University of Houston – Clear Lake, Houston

This research is not about exploring a new fusion energy concept, it actually assumes the availability of an aneutronic fusion energy reactor. The focus is on providing the best (most efficient) utilization of fusion energy for propulsion purposes.”

Mr. Miley has been awarded a U.S. patent for an LENR energy device… the “assumption” of a “new fusion energy concept” is correct.

An Ambitious Goal

“This Phase I study is targeting a new spacecraft architecture to enable an unprecedented range of mission capabilities that, for the purpose of simple comparison, can be summarized as 10 times faster, 10 times further, and 10 times heavier with respect to the current state of the art. The improved traveling capabilities offer new, exciting mission possibilities and, in fact, an entire new paradigm for approaching the solar system exploration and colonization.”

Of Particular Interest Is this from section 4.6

“Fission Hybrid Interim Concept” (uranium fission/aneutronic fusion)

A system level analysis that extends the Phase I system level study shall be conducted including compact fission reactor performance for state-of-the-art and near-term foreseeable designs. This particular investigation is aimed at providing a high-level assessment of the “a” obtainable for different scenarios in which fission power provides all or part of the energy required for running the aneutronic fusion core and producing the ion flow.

 

I surmise a new approach…

“Fusion Hybrid Interim Concept”

(LENR fusion/aneutronic fusion)

George H. Miley proposes to replace conventional NASA fission power units with existing LENR fusion thermoelectric technology.

This new approach applied to Aneutronic Fusion Spacecraft Architecture may be summarized as where LENR fusion thermoelectric power provides all or part of the energy required for running the aneutronic fusion core and producing the ion flow.

NASA Glenn Research Center Experience with LENR Phenomenon 

Author:Wrbanek, Susan Y.; Fralick, Gustave C.; Wrbanek, John D.; Niedra, Janis M.
Abstract:Since 1989 NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) has performed some small-scale limited experiments that show evidence of effects claimed by some to be evidence of Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR). The research at GRC has involved observations and work on measurement techniques for observing the temperature effects in reactions of isotopes of hydrogen with palladium hydrides. The various experiments performed involved loading Pd with gaseous H2 and D2, and exposing Pd thin films to multi-bubble sonoluminescence in regular and deuterated water. An overview of these experiments and their results will be presented. Collection:NASA NASA Center:Glenn Research Center Publication Date:May 2012 Document ID:20130001794 Subject Category:PHYSICS (GENERAL) Report/Patent Number:GRC-E-DAA-TN5141

The 2013 President’s (Budget)

Funding Highlights:

Provides $27.2 billion in discretionary funds, a 3.2 percent increase above the 2012 enacted level. This request includes increased funding for priority areas such as clean energy, research and development to spur innovation, and advanced manufacturing. Savings and efficiencies are achieved through cuts to inefficient and outdated fossil fuel subsidies, low-priority and low-performing programs, and by concentrating resources on full utilization of existing facilities and infrastructure.

Increases funding for applied research, development, and demonstration in the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. The Budget also maintains and expands funding for the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy. These investments in high-performing programs will help position the United States as a world leader in the clean energy economy, and create the foundation for new industries and new jobs.

Improves the competitiveness of U.S. industries by more than doubling research and development on advanced manufacturing processes and advanced industrial materials, enabling companies to cut costs by using less energy while improving product quality.

Works through the President’s Better Building Initiative to make non-residential buildings more energy efficient by catalyzing private sector investment. Creates jobs through mandatory funding for HomeStar incentives to consumers to make their homes more energy efficient.

Promotes basic research through $5 billion in funding to the Office of Science.

Positions the Environmental Management program to meet its legally enforceable cleanup commitments at sites across the country.

Continues investments to maintain a safe, secure, and effective nuclear weapons stockpile in support of the planned decrease in deployed U.S. and Russian weapons under the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty.

Strengthens national security through funding for securing, disposing of, and detecting nuclear and radiological material worldwide.

Thank you Walker for the following…

 

“With the head scientist at NASA Langley research saying LENR is confirmed along with confirmation from Labs at Toyota, Mitsubishi, and STMicroelectronics as well as Amaco, the US Navy research labs, along with a course on the Fleischmann/Pons effect at MIT and working replications of the Celani reactor at academic sites around the world as well as hundreds of confirmed and peer reviewed experimental paper, that professors and Nobel prize winners are saying it is real and that Patents now being granted, the case that LENR is a real working system of cold fusion is proven.”


LENR Proof

The fact that…

“Oil companies like BP, Shell, Exon, and a host of others are all selling off their oil fields around the world, that Petrobas who spent a decade to aquire the controling interest in a texas oil refinery, now are desperate to sell it at a loss.”

“The fact that Nuclear power plant owners are cancelling their big investment projects, and preparing to close their plants.”

“It is well known that the major players are on a divestment and diversification strategy. Many are giving various excuses, but when you check them they do not pan out. We are shifting to US based fields is a common one, but when you look they have bought options to consider buying or leases rather than the asset.”

“That is key no buying only renting. You rent assets when the asset value is about to take a hit. And the total US Proven reserves does not add up to what has been sold.”

Shell has been on a massive divestment strategy on its oil field assets, from Africa to the Far East for the last 12 months, or since Rossi did his first demonstration this time last year.”

“Other Fossil Fuel companies on a divestment strategy are BP who are selling their stakes in fields in the North Sea, Russia, the Arctic and the Gulf to name but a few and not even batting an eyelid about being refused license to buy future assets in the Gulf. (link) (link) and (link)

“Even the pipeline parts and refinery companies are joining the rush to divest the fossil fuel business.”

“Do a Google search for any oil company and the phrase “Oil field” and the words divest or sell.

“Some are trying to cover their strategy and the risk by divesting half of the asset others are just cashing in their chips.”

“This year has been an Oil Field Night of the Long Knives as all the major players have been dumping these soon to be seriously downgraded assets.”

“The price per barrel dropped 20+ dollars since May.”

“I expect the real drop to be when the 60 day and 30 Day options on the price per barrel get shorted when the Rossi announcement is about to be made. I expect the price per barrel will drop below 70. Then it will resurge as people realise LENR will not happen overnight.”

“Then Oil and other fossil fuels will go into a long decline with investors on a business decline strategy making money out of the asset stripping and running the oil fields into the ground. Natural Gas will be the longest lived of the Fossil Fuel assets.”

“Coal might die out out in as little a year and a half as converting coal power plants to use Rossi’s Hot Cat or other LENR tech will be very easy. Oil will be next. Converting all power plants could take a 5 to 7 years but the fact that President Obama changed the Law to allow Combined Heat and Power means that many plants will end up being scrapped before they can convert, as faster cheaper more nimble competitors will create power plants on customers door steps, that provide power at a tenth but theoretically at up to one thousandth of the cost.”

“With regard to Nuclear and Green power the same applies Siemans dropped all their Nuclear industry like a hot potato after September 2011 others followed suit. Siemans also dropped their $33bn green business.”

“Buckle up people its about to get bumpy.”
