Alternative Energy Source?

    Alternative Energy Source??

    Anybody here familiar with the work being done by Dr. Randell Mills? I came across this article wherein it is claimed he has developed a process to create a new kind of hydrogen with a resultant release of massive amounts of energy. His work is controversial as it appears to violate one of the basic principles of quantum mechanics and yet his findings have been verified by independent scientists.
    His company Blacklight Power Inc. expects to unveil a product utilising this new power source within a few months.
    http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/story/0,3605,1627424,00.html
    He has apparently already produced new compounds using his 'new' hydrogen atoms that have greatly interested the military amongst others;
    In fact Blacklight Power are predicting more profit from the compounds they can produce than from the creation of cheap energy. Some members of the companies board have expressed fears that their research could be classified as secret by the US gov't because of it's far reaching military applications.

    I believe there are threads about this that heavily dispute his "findings". But then again, put up or shut up, if he can do it then woohoo more power to him.

    Looking at the company website it seems they are actually producing energy and new materials using this process so it seems difficult to discount it on the basis of it doesn't fit existing QM theories. Seeing is believing. Though it will piss off a lot of people who have devoted their careers to QM if he is proven right. :smile:

    I think theres some information in that anti-gravity patent that got through thread.

    There's MORE than enough discussion about this in the Skepticisim/Debunking forum. Please look there.
