Significant progress? I thought he already had working prototypes? This time the working prototypes actually work? Or this time the working prototypes actually exist? Or this time....... What exactly? We have one being manufactured for consumer use?

They have made significant progress in not actually doing anything - I know I'm impressed. I've kinda lost track - where are they in their standard swindle and cheat investors business cycle? I thought it would be in the 'lay low' portion before any rendition of announcing a bunch of fake contracts, a new break thru and zillions to come!!!!!!

It is basically impossible for Brilliant light power to make any progress because this is Randal Mill's fantasy of "hydinos". They have been failing to make progress for almost 30 years now. Brilliant Light Power was originally founded in 1991.

It is certainly impossible to comment on reports that you do not cite !
The BLP reports we have seen lie. BLP have never isolated Mill's hydrino fantasy. BLP have never detected hydrinos. They have results they (mostly unqualified BLP employees) cannot explain and imagine this is that fantasy. We see that BLP are getting better and better at blowing up their apparatus! Mills published in the Chinese Journal of Physics in 2018 - this is a sign that his papers are rejected by American journals.

Randell L. Mills, M.D. is a dairy farmer's son who purports to have invented "the new fire" by debunking quantum mechanics.... Mills actually has a medical degree which makes his ignorance or lies about physics and fantasy of having a "Grand Unified Theory of Classical Physics" worse.

Now to engineer a way to covert that to power.
I guess they'll need another 10 years and 10 million dollar a year?

Can they even "afford" to sell/roll out a device? How long would it take until the first skeptic measures the input and output power, revealing that it is in fact not several MW?

Yup. 30 years of nothing. Funny that.

One might think that someone might have said "wait just a minute" but NO. It appears that there are credules for any load of bunk.

It is an odd result of human nature.

Go figure.

Thirty years to get to boiling water?
It only took 66 years to go from the first powered flight to landing on the Moon...

The most interesting part for me about this new round of the scam is he no longer discusses his so called catalysts. In the past it was fairly easy to show the most likely source of any extra heat being produced by the system was some sort of release of potential/chemical energy produced by burning catalysts and/or metal parts to the reactor itself.

Now he is reverted to the "black box" trick used by many illusionists. You don't get to see the inside to figure out what's going on. All we have is the assurance of a known scammer that yes indeed power in excess of burning hydrogen is being produced. Not very productive and completely impossible to verify.

I do wish they'd hurry up and release their portable models. When I get one I'll wire it into my Tesla and never have to stop for a recharge again. BLP will make hundreds of millions from people like me.


(I will of course have to stop for frequent toilet and coffee breaks, much like today).

That latter problem is easily addressed by tapping into the heated water supply coming from the generator. The former, however, will need a new seating option not currently available from Tesla.

Yes, the "black box" scam. Except he doesn't even do it well. They claim to have run these reactors for 24 hours.

* Publish the electrical energy used with error bars and method of measurement.
* Publish the exact gas composition, average flow rate, and total mass of gas used.
* Publish any extra magical ingredients used, and whether they were consumed.
* Publish the heat generated and how you know
* Give your reactor, minus the consumables and measurement equipment to a skeptical independent third party, and have them connect and measure the consumables based on published specs, and measure the output energy.

There, done. I bet they would argue that this isn't necessary, because they've already proved it. Except they haven't!

If their reactor worked, it would be trivial to prove. That would bring in hundreds of millions of dollars in investment. Why is he almost out of money, with investors who desperately want to be able to sell their shares in a secondary market?

That'd be to direct.
They'll have to find a way to convert the steam energy into mechanical force in some completely revolutionarily unfathomable new method that has yet to be imagined. Only then can they move forward.

Maybe so, but it took Geordies to make it work properly. Maybe Mills doesn't have anyone from Newcastle working for him.

Good question.

And what do they do with the ultrastable hydrino that's produced?

Seems to me an easy verification would be to simply send this "hydrino" byproduct to outside labs for verification. 250kw for 100 hours is 90*10^9 Joules. Should be a fair amount of hydrino produced.

I presume it means a pre-test in-house of the field test they intend to do at the site of an interested party.

Are they going on a road show, where people get to witness hot water, but have no ability to do their own investigations?

There is no way they will give one of these cells to an independent party for validation. Instead, I bet they will shut the whole thing down, and have to re-engineer an even bigger cell, or a better cell, or one that runs longer. Perhaps the new one will come in a range of colors?

They were going to do that, but accidently served it for dinner along with garlic bread.

I for one, look forward to my hydrino powered tea pot/coffee maker that still requires electricity and is the size of a washing machine.
And needs molten metal!

There's virtually nothing in them that looks anything like millions of dollars and decades of research whatsoever.
Seriously, Mills, clean and degrease the place and toss a coat of paint on at least.
If your lab was a restaurant the health department would close it down in a heartbeat.

They have not even tried to do that. Or if they tried, they certainly did not show it, or allow a proper confirmation. This means if they tried, they probably failed and are covering it up.

The only ones they showed long ago were certainly fail, just burning up the metal equipment.

If the purpose of the water is to moderate the reactor temperature (and/or to perform calorimetry), rather than to provide steam power, you really don't want it boiling. Cool the water better, increase the flow, and if necessary pressurize the system.

On the other hand, if all you want is to make it look energetic and mad-science-y, boil that sucka!

They will never allow an independent team to do that.
So this will keep on going.
