Im still on the road, having fun, meeting interesting people, investigating mysterious machineries, playing with kids and …
Yeah basically just doing whatever I fell like, when I feel like.
Thats the way I prefer to do things!!!
Not Because I Need To But Because I Want To
I think that during our Texas Road Trip we where all on the same page, lets do this for all the right reasons and have fun while doing it. That involved eating a lot of Pizza and drinking cherry Milk Shakes.
We arrived at NI Week 2013 and sat up our stand Sunday.
Our Crew went under the name of “Neo-Coulombic“, the name derives from an old equation that Dennis Discovered long time ago while doing theoretical calculations where he assumed a Universe with 5 Dimensions instead of 4 Dimensions.
(Today, many scientists propose that the Universe consists of as much as 11 dimensions. This is referred to as the String Theory. String theory is today the leading theory to explain not only the force of gravity, but also seems to be our biggest hope of Unifying all other theories into one Grand Explanation of the Universe.)
Dennis collected about 50 business cards however Dennis and Rod was very careful to point out that this whole demonstration was part of a Non Profit Live Open Science Initiative.
Dennis and Rod wanted to do a demonstration that was suitable for children and engineers, thus we never went in to deep conversations about the physics behind the demonstrations during the opening hours of the event.
Our Demonstration Was teally Simple
Two round spheres, one contained sand and one contained the “secret powder”.
The two spheres was resting in a bath of Aluminium that was heated from underneath.
(Aluminium is better at conducting heat than water so by using Aluminium instead of water you get a more even distribution of the heat coming from underneath)
We 3 did heat measurements and hooked them up to a screen with 3 lines:
* The highest line is the heat measurement of the sphere containing the “secret powder”.
* The two lower lines is the heat measurements of the sphere containing sand, and, the Aluminium bath.
The sphere containing the “secret powder” was keeping a temperature of 84 Celsius, thats 4 degrees hotter than the other ball and the Aluminium bath they was resting in.
Can we draw any conclusions from that?
At the very last day Dennis opened up one of the active spheres to show what was contained in it before an audience. A few personnel from National Instruments was also present for observations.
The powder is containing an mixture of Palladium and Gold. (inside carbon)
Dennis used this instead of Nickel because it works very well for him at low temperatures.
Also, Nickel Powder for Cold Fusion needs to be handled in an lab environment. (safety first)
It seems I have received a few questions in E-mails and on different forums over the internet.
I intend to answer to all of them and when possible public on my webpage, sooo, if you have any questions about the demonstrations during NI Week, let me know and I will address them in my next Log Post.
Just reading my Log helps me to collect money to keep me on the road and for buying more presents.
Thanks to all my readers for all the support , I would like to kiss everyone of you!!!
(But I wont, because If I did I would be an …. well you know…)
From Russia, With Love
