The .020 grade-2 flywheel gear has not been ordered for over ten years. If ordered, we would have to rebuild a mold for fabrication. The polyethylene base is no longer being manufactured (a latex polymer is available as a substitute). That alone is amazing in itself- polyethylene is the most widely used plastic in the western world. We've used UHMWPE to shield camber bearings from high-velocity carbon-chain molecules. So much for Kevlar®. So the world changes.

So does Nylon. Once just a filament plastic, now a versatile flexible polymer/copolymer with exceptional electrical and thermoplastic properties. Our original nylon fabrication and production base contained five variations, quite a bit for our small company. The variations today make that seem ordinary for just the 6,6 string. The only detriment to nylon is its lack of shearing strength in macro fabrications.

We successfully stress-tested a newly designed 12:1 nylon planetary reduction motor gear for a J-2micron 02 injection pump assembly, fabricated using a flourotube photon beam etching needle. It seems the smaller the nylon components get, the stronger they get. Anyone for synthetic amino acids? (No, we are NOT manufacturing them...) (but someone is...)

The collective changes of micro electronic fabrication methods for gearing mechanisms over the years are being radically modified by nano technology. We have started a new training seminar to expand and enhance the second phase of our D-riSo2® application of electron beam and photon beam nano-fabrication techniques.

An experimental investigation of possible anomalous heat production in a special type of reactor tube named E-Cat HT is carried out. The reactor tube is charged with a small amount of hydrogen loaded nickel powder plus some additives. The reaction is primarily initiated by heat from resistor coils inside the reactor tube. Measurement of the produced heat was performed with high-resolution thermal imaging cameras, recording data every second from the hot reactor tube.

The measurements of electrical power input were performed with a large bandwidth three-phase power analyzer. Data were collected in two experimental runs lasting 96 and 116 hours, respectively. An anomalous heat production was indicated in both experiments. The 116-hour experiment also included a calibration of the experimental set-up without the active charge present in the E-Cat HT. In this case, no extra heat was generated beyond the expected heat from the electric input. Computed volumetric and gravimetric energy densities were found to be far above those of any known chemical source. Even by the most conservative assumptions as to the errors in the measurements, the result is still one order of magnitude greater than conventional energy sources.

Where is the United States in the Cold Fusion equation? According to MIT, it doesn't exist. MIT is a premier advisor for the federal government, and gets approximately $1 billion a year from the federal government for hot fusion research which, after who knows how many billions(trillions in the industry as a whole), has yet to produce a positive result of sustainable usage, let alone a single watt of consumer-usable(or any other usable) energy. This annotation is a very small example of the U.S. political/industrial forces controlling not just energy in the U.S. but also the consumers that pay for it.

MIT has since changed its stance on cold fusion and is now trying to gain the forefront of the recognition of the technology. Too bad MIT set the U.S. technology back 25 years. The blame has been centered around a couple of individuals. Yeah, right. Funny, there's always a waiting period until certain people retire or die, too. MIT has yet to issue an apology to anyone for anything, publicly or privately. If you're a taxpayer, you'll never get one, nor your money back. Just like Reagan. He cancelled all funding for alternative energy sources less than one year into his first term, and gave the coal companies a huge tax break. We will be living with his... cough, cough... legacy for another 25 years too.

And don't wait for Obama to do anything. He's either a total idiot or a total democrat(he cares more for his party than you). Okay, whatever, he's both.

Countries in Europe are currently manufacturing, deploying and ENJOYING the benefits of cold fusion electric-generating plants. We're talking MW facilities. The U.S. president is talking new uranium-fuelled nuclear power plants.   Wow.

As an aside, take a look at what's happening with fuel cells. A great low-end energy technology, it has been warped by proponents to save our Great American Way Of Life. What's really happened: It's been used to trade Carbon Credits(without actually manufacturing or using fuel cell technology), a short-term fix for corn prices made the fuel cell uneconomical for the average person(permanently), the least costly method of extracting hydrogen is a separation from methane(natural gas) producing carbon dioxide emissions(lots of carbon dioxide emissions). Yep, a clean fuel with a very dirty footprint. There are other more expensive methods and substances that would produce better results with a reduced or eliminated footprint but corporations always go for bottom dollar so our carbon dioxide footprint will continue to grow. Tip: invest in Halliburton.

As another aside, consider a natural plant substance that is 50 times more abundant than all the cornfields in the U.S., produces 1¾ the amount of convertible gas energy as corn, uses only 20% water as corn, 10% of corn's carbon footprint and currently costs only 10% to extract the energy from versus corn. And it's currently free. It's called Cellulosic Fiber. Long Grass has it. All plants have it. And it's molecular chain is renewable. With no carbon footprint. Hmm. Corn has cellulosic fiber too. But the ethanol extraction method is very expensive. And it has a footprint. ! And a much larger lobbying system(than even MIT).
