Skip to comments.Robert George and Robert Godes of Brillouin Energy — Announce Successful Cold Fusion Reactor
Posted on 03/30/2012 5:10:35 AM PDT by Wonder Warthog
James Martinez of Cash Flow Radio has conducted an interview with Brillouin Energys Chief Executive Officer Robert George and President and Chief Technical Officer Robert E. Godes.
The reason they said they are ready to conduct an interview at this point (and not earlier) is because they have been able to develop a control system that allows a reaction to start and stop, and run in a steady state mode. They said that next month they will be working with Mike McKubre of SRI International to run a reactor at a higher temperature.
Godes states that the Brillouins reaction starts with an endothermic reaction (reaction that absorbs heat) and ends with a more powerful exothermic reaction (reaction releases heat). Brillouin is working on two systems, the first one provides heat at 140 degrees C, (called the wet boiler) the second one reaches 400 450 degrees C. George says that they have applied for patents, but have been told by a patent examiner at the US Patent Office that the office is still not permitted to grant patents in the cold fusion field.
Robert George said that financing has been difficult to obtain, and they are working towards securing a two million dollar investment. Their business plan is not to manufacture products, but to license technology to third party producers. George says that Brillouin has been receiving visits from a number of entities, including the Naval Research Lab and major corporations.
Godes expresses doubts about whether both Andrea Rossi and Defkalion actually have technology that is ready for the marketplace, but says he would like to see them succeed in order to bring recognition and acceptance to the field of cold fusion.
This is a summation of a verbal interview, which can be found:
I have NOT listened to the actual interview (just can't hear well enough).

My skeptical meter pegged in the red when I saw words 4,5, and 6...
Hope ‘n Change ain’t enough to get ya through that Coulomb Barrier!
The lizard people use these cold fusion reactors for all their energy needs.
Fur Shur you don't want to start with anything bigger than an hydrogen atom with but one proton (hence Nature's preference for fusing hydrogen).
Obviously stars represent both the high pressure, hot fusion model as well as the low pressure, cold fusion model.
We know that attempts to recreate the high pressure, hot fusion model on Earth (In a controlled fashion) results in nothing more than a multibillion dollar rathole of waste as semi-employed physicist after semi-employed physicist comes up with yet another reason to waste our resources on it.
Announce successful pill that turns water into motor fuel
Announce successful device that when clamped on your fuel line gets 100 mpg
Announce successful perpetual motion
Announce successful universal cure for cancer.
Anyone who wants to invest in this, I have a better ideal, I just got a note the other day from the widow of an African finance minister who wants me to help her get $27,000,000 dollars out of Ivory Coast, and she'll give me 10% if I just give her my bank routing number. I'm holding out for a higher percentage, but anyone who wants to invest in cold fusion might want to settle for 10%.
They can tell you how it works...but then they’d have to “stune you with their beebers!”
If this is true and they get it to market, a week won’t go by before the EPA announces a sea water shortage. We will then begin importing water from Saudi Arabia.
And it will all be available.......tomorrow/s
So tired of the “Eureka” followed by wait til next month
And when NIF actually achieves fusion later this year ( and it will) we’ll see your responses then
Well, you've proved you can count to six. Now, go the the .PDF link and study the data.
Apparently, a significant number of theorists disagree with you. Suggest starting with Dr. Srivastata's presentation at CERN.
Well, I haven't seen any evidence for the existence of the lizard people, but there is quite a bit of evidence (peer-reviewed and otherwise) for CF.
At this point, nobody knows how it works. There are conflicting theories. What matters is the replicated data done by different researchers....which absolutely exists.
LOL. The "hot" physicists have been doing that for fifty years. So have the cancer researchers. We have neither a working "hot fusion" reactor, nor a cure for cancer.
But just once, I wish one of you guys would actually present an argument BASED ON DATA, and spend some time studying the existing DATA for LANR.
Unlike many others, Godes and company have been completely open, and you can see (at least some) of their data on their website.
Now, you’re just reacting defensive.
Put the bottle down, dude. I believe in cold fusion.
In fact I believe in an radical theory of cosmology proposed by Sakharov and Puthoff based on the ZPE (which is for all intents and purposes, infinite) and forever, uninteruptable universal expansion.
It’ll happen. People might die, but it will happen.
Kev....late ping...would you do the “list thing”?? Found and posted this just before leaving for work (at which I just arrived), so I’m about to “submerge” again ‘til “quittin’ time”.
