While we’re still waiting for wider validation of BlackLight Power’s purportedly physics-defying fuel cell, in the mean time we’ll have to settle for a video of the independent validation that BlackLight has already announced. BlackLight has created a video of the Rowan University researchers who concluded that the mysterious reaction produces the levels of energy that BlackLight claims.

Take the video with a grain of salt, but it does give you a glimpse at the company’s technology and gives some face time to BlackLight’s controversial founder Randall Mills, whose “hydrino theory” doesn’t quite jive with quantum mechanics.

The validation process was headed up by Rowan University’s Dr. Peter Jansson, who ambiguously concluded that “there is a novel reaction of some type causing the large exotherm which is consistently produced.” Controversy not withstanding, BlackLight has found well-heeled backers and raised $60 million for its venture.

  1. I would like to draw attention to Blacklight’s “in press” article (linked to on their website), “Commercializable Power Source from Forming New States of Hydrogen.”

    Really, one need only read the first paragraph:

    “Mills [1-12] solved the structure of the bound electron using classical laws and subsequently developed a unification theory based on those laws call the Grand Unified Theory of Classical Physics (GUTCP) with results that match observations for the basic phenomena of physics and chemistry from the scale of quarks to the cosmos. This paper is the first in a series of three that covers to specific predictions of GUTCP, two involving the existence of lower-energy states of the hydrogen atom, which represents a powerful new energy source, and the third involving the existence of a fifth force [2] beyond the electromagnetic, strong and weak-nuclear, and gravitational forces.”

    Scientific criticisms aside, why on Earth have the physics and chemistry communities not embraced this convenient new theory that seems to explain everything and then some? His first paper on the GUTCP was published in 2002 — might there be problems with the theory?

    Also of note is that his paper on “the Fifth Force,” reference #2, has not been published. It is listed as “submitted” in the manuscript.

    Black light said they would have a commercial power source 3 years ago and nothing came of it.

  3. Industrial adoption is not dictated by discoveries in science but by investors who wish to profit. It turns out that if this technology is real it would dislodge a magnitude of vested interest in existing infrastructure that the imagination runs wild with possible responses.

  8. Black Light, Cold Fusion, and some HHO anomalies are all unknowingly utilizing Casimir Cavities.
    Method cited in a 5/8/2008 CalTech patent and description is proof enough of actual method at work. The cal-tech patent chose to use nano holes drilled in plates where BLP used skeletal catalysts to provide cavities. This means that Cold Fusion and HHO kits are about to go on steroids now that the theory is out of the bag, see my proposal below.
    I propose that anomalous heat readings reported in failed cold fusion experiments are being generated by Casimir force. Instead of just pushing microscopic plates together and extinguishing the exclusion field, we utilize Casimir cavities where permanent exclusion fields exist because the plate geometry is fixed. This creates a “safe harbor” where longer vacuum fluctuations are restricted and the ratio of short to long fluctuations is different than normal. These cavities can be formed inadvertently thru chemical leaching of metals immersed in an electrolyte to form primitive skeletal catalysts some portion of which will meet Casimir geometry. These cavities allow gas atoms to relax their electrons into novel orientations only possible inside the Casimir exclusion field which will be lost when the atom exits the field. The SECRET to making these relaxed atoms into a hydrino molecule is that they must form a covalent bond while still inside this exclusion field. The covalent bond then preserves the novel electron orientations outside the field with one atom’s orbital leveraged against the others’ through their molecular bond. When this new molecule exits the Casimir field the stream of normally chaotic vacuum fluctuations must align in an organized boundary of potential energy waiting to sweep these arrogant little electrons back down into their normal orientation of least resistance and contributing energy to the reaction that released the bond. If Casimir geometry gets smaller the exclusion field becomes stronger causing orientations that accumulate potential energy in excess of the covalent bonding force and immediately rips the hydrino apart releasing the potential energy as the “anomalous” heat readings under discussion.
