SCIENCE.GOV

Science.gov is a web portal and search engine (Academic databases and search engines). Using federated search technology, Science.gov serves as a gateway to U.S. government science information and research results. Currently in its fifth generation, Science.gov provides a search of over 38 databases from 14 federal science agencies and 200 million pages of science information with just one query, and is a gateway to 1,900+ scientific websites. The FY 2007 Report to Congress on Implementation of The E-Government Act of 2002 noted that in FY 2007 “Science.gov experienced 6.5 million search queries across all its scientific databases and 2.6 million page views of its website.” In April 2007, Library Journal included Science.gov in its list of best references of 2006. U.S. Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham and Director of the Office of Science Dr. Raymond L. Orbach both remarked positively on the launch of Science.gov 2.0 on May 11, 2004. Science.gov is the United States contribution to the international portal.

Governance

Governance of Science.gov is provided by the interagency Science.gov Alliance. The Alliance is co-chaired by the United States Department of Agriculture and the United States Geological Survey.

    Title:
    Can LENR Energy Gains Exceed 1000?
    Authors:
    Nagel, David J.
    Publication:
    American Physical Society, APS March Meeting 2011, March 21-25, 2011, abstract #Y33.004
    Publication Date:

    Energy gain is defined as the energy realized from reactions divided by the energy required to produce those reactions. Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) have already been measured to significantly exceed the energy gain of 10 projected from ITER,possibly 15 years from now. Electrochemical experiments using the Pd-D system have shown energy gains exceeding 10. Gas phase experiments with the Ni-H system were reported to yield energy gains of over 100. Neither of these reports has been adequately verified or reproduced. However, the question in the title still deserves consideration. If, as thought by many, it is possible to trigger nuclear reactions that yield MeV energies with chemical energies of the order of eV, then the most optimistic expectation is that LENR gains could approach one million. Hence, the very tentative answer to the question above is yes. However, if LENR could be initiated with some energy cost, and then continue to “burn,” very high energy gains might be realized. Consider a match and a pile of dry logs. The phenomenon termed “heat after death” will be examined to see if it might be the initial evidence for nuclear “burning.”

    1. Pondering Nutrinos?

      I wonder the part partnering branches of science plays in advancments in LENR. The art of Nano, Quantum, and Nutrino physics. The American Physical Society and NASA research. All of these are leading to new physics.

      Here are two great reads.

      Anomalous Heat Effect:De-Hyping and Deciphering“Cold Fusion” Marc G. Millis 2009-Jun-25
      http://www.focus.it/fileflash/energia/fusioneFredda/FF_doc/2009-06-25_NASA-GRC-Millis_AnomalousHeatEffect.pdf
      From page 24
      Some Physics Anomalies
      Pioneer Anomaly (unknown sunward acceleration of space probes)
      Dark Matter (needed to explain galaxy spin)
      Dark Energy (needed to explain universe expansion)
      Neutrino Spin & Mass (its own anti-particle?)
      Superconductivity (superfluidCooper pairs)
      Magnetic Pole Drift (increasing drift rate of magnetic poles)
      Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Rays (some cosmic rays possess energies that are too high: >>1015eV/amu)
      Sonoluminescence (light from cavitation in liquids)
      Cold Fusion (anomalous heat generation in some highly-loaded hydrides)

      The Neutrino Matrix
      Prepared by the Members of the APS Multi-Divisional Neutrino Study
      http://www.aps.org/policy/reports/multidivisional/neutrino/upload/main.pdf
      From pg 24
      A final consideration is support for a strong theory effort on the broad set of issues in neutrino physics. Theoretical efforts in neutrino physics have played a fundamental role in interpreting the wide range of revolutionary experimental results and building a coherent, yet still incomplete, picture of the new physics uncovered by the discovery of neutrino flavor transitions. Among the triumphs of such efforts are computations of the solar neutrino flux, development of the neutrino oscillation formalism including the effects of neutrino propagation in matter, and determination of the effects of neutrinos in Big-Bang nucleosynthesis, large scale structure formation, and the distortions of the cosmic microwave background radiation.

      It is also part of the theoretical efforts to establish connections between the new discoveries in neutrino physics and our most fundamental understanding of matter, energy, space, and time. Significant advances have been made in several arenas, including establishing connections between neutrino masses and leptonic mixing with the concept of grand unification, establishing a relationship between neutrino masses and the matter-antimatter asymmetry of the Universe (through leptogenesis), and developing different predictive mechanisms for understanding the origin of neutrino masses in a more satisfying and relevant way.

      Finally, due to the particular interdisciplinary nature of neutrino physics, theory has played the absolutely essential role of integrating results and developments in astronomy, astrophysics, cosmology, high-energy and low-energy particle physics, and nuclear physics. As new discoveries arise in all of these disciplines, theoretical guidance and integration will continue to be indispensable.

  2. It appears much of the research has been taking place quietly for a four years, about the time President Obama first took office. I had already heard that President Obama was shielding several research projects; that the fossil fuel lobby had tried to kill. You may remember, that SPARWAR’s research was apparently scuppered by a concerted effort from FOX and various Fosil Fuel lobyists, it now appears they just shifted the research to a covert project in the US Navy yards, to protect it.

    1. By shutting down coal power plants is he trying to disembowel the industrial base of the USA or is he anticipating the introduction of LENR and offshoring the obsolete technologies?

      1. I am not clear on it…

        Sell oil leases… deep well, shale, sands etc…
        KEEP the money… on unprofitable ventures.
        Ding the coal transhipments…. big time.

        Make yourself as non-supportive of coal… that is already blasting out of the ground.

        Ready for an LENR announcement?

        Hi,

        Science.gov – LENR, NASA, the DIA, SPAWAR, the American Nuclear Society, the American Physical Society, Boeing, General Electric, National Instruments, Purdue, MIT, Stanford, and many other U.S. organizations, companies, and institutions are engaged in the race to understand and engineer advanced LENR devices.

        The recent plethora of U.S. LENR information creates a foundation for the entry of LENR into the “mainstream”… it is not hard to imagine the attraction LENR holds for President Obama, or any world leader seeking accolades.

        Will Obama go for the glory with his inaugural address? The stage is set for cold fusion now.

        This is a news tip for you about a Cold Fusion LENR Powered Boeing 747 being developed by NASA.

        “Even though we do not know the specific cost of the LENR itself, we assumed a cost of jet fuel at $4/gallon and weight based aircraft cost. We were able to calculate cost per mile for the LENR equipped aircraft compared to a conventional aircraft (Figure 3.2). Looking at the plots, one could select a point where the projected cost per mile is 33% less than a conventionally powered aircraft.”

        Maybe you could interview a few of these guys… see what they have to say about the emerging LENR technology (popularly known as cold fusion).
