Some of you may already be aware of this development, but for those who are not, I want to offer this information to get you up to speed with where I see things going.  Electricity is going to become a lot cheaper and more plentiful.  

Why do I say this?

I say this because a competing theory for how our star's system of nuclear fusion works was tested and found to be solid.  In short, the nuclear reactions that create the heat and light we are so familiar with come, not from within the interior of the Sun, but on it's surface.  To test this theory, a first class scientific instrument was constructed and tests have been run on it for the last few years.  With the conclusive evidence derived from these experiments a few things were learned.  One is that fusion can take place at temperatures far lower than what mainstream science is currently pursuing.  Another is that the half-life of nuclear materials, as in nuclear waste, is drastically reduced when put in proximity to the energy fields produced by the plasma in the reactor core.  Another, and probably the most important, is that when properly set up and balanced, the device can run at over unity, this being possible only because of the energy being released by the transmutation of hydrogen and other basic elements as the plasma reaction runs.

This technology is not being commercialized and I expect it to one day supplant natural gas/coal and nuclear powered electrical generating facilities.   Especially attractive is the potential for simply upgrading the existing facilities to use the heat generated by the Plasma Reactor instead of burning fossil fuels or using uranium to boil water for steam.  It will also be used to remediate the nuclear waste left over from our nuclear power plants, reducing it to non-hazardous material.

Here is a link to get you started if you want to learn more.

Our Universe is electric.

For control they ran electricity thru some normal wire (copper/aluminium) and said that 1000W of electricity produced 1000W of heat.

Then to prove their point they ran 1000W of electricity thru some radioactive wire and said look it is producing 1500W of heat.
Even when we turn off the electricity it still produce 500W of heat. And when we add some "purple hydrogen" it reduces the half life of the radioactive wire (think Plutonium wire). How much reduction you might ask, well we aren't going to say yet, maybe it saves 1 second out of 1 million years, but hey that is still a reduction.

We don't even need hot fusion,
The cold fusion[0] that happens in special devices [1] can turn the energy provided[2] into four times as much[3].

[0] No, I don't know either what that is.
[1] heatpumps
[2] electrical energy
[3] compared to how much electrical energy a resistor based heater would use

I'm afraid the project is a scam. Their own plasma physicist called their claims 'fraudulent'. And the 'model' they were allegedly testing is scientifically impossible. We know how the Sun is powered - fusion in the core. If the fusion were on the surface, the associated gamma radiation would have long since fried the planet into uninhabitability. Apart from anything else, the temperatures and densities in the photosphere are nowhere near enough to initiate fusion.

Ian,  I am very interested to review the source of your information.  As far as nuclear fusion reactions in the stellar core.  We have no actual evidence for that.  However, it is a reasonable explanation for observable phenomena, especially since the dawn of the atomic age.  Unfortunately, there are many observable phenomena about our sun that remain unanswered by that hypothesis that no amount of tweaking has able to solve.

Cosmologists are just now coming to terms with the fact that electricity, not gravity, is the driving force of most cosmological clockwork.

Again and again I have seen scientists representing the Electric Universe school of thought make successful prediction after successful prediction while at the same time our conventional scientists have to explain away mysterious data that doesn't fit with accepted dogma.

Times, they are a changin'.

From their own plasma physicist, Dr. Lowell Morgan. He called Childs 'a fraud', the project team 'bozos', and their claims 'fraudulent'. You can see this in the video by Professor Dave, entitled 'The SAFIRE Project Is Not Real Science (Electric Sun Model Debunked).' And you can see their claims of transmutation (lol!) ripped apart by a real scientist in AB Science's video, entitled 'AB science - SAFIRE and claims of transmutation.' It's a scam. Even the way that they funded this scam is dodgy, and appears to violate US tax laws regarding charities. I have informed the IRS of this. I hope you haven't invested.

As far as nuclear fusion reactions in the stellar core.  We have no actual evidence for that

.

Yes we have. The laws of physics, and the neutrino data. And that data tells us that fusion is occurring. Furthermore, it also tells us that ~ 99% of the neutrinos come from the first step in the proton-proton chain. It also means, to anybody that understands fusion, that it must be occurring in the core. If it were happening on the surface, for instance, we would be fried by the gamma rays produced.

Unfortunately, there are many observable phenomena about our sun that remain unanswered by that hypothesis that no amount of tweaking has able to solve.



Really? I have a Master's in astrophysics. Care to let me in on these unexplainable phenomena?

Cosmologists are just now coming to terms with the fact that electricity, not gravity, is the driving force of most cosmological clockwork

.

No it isn't and no they aren't. At those scales, gravity is the only force that explains everything.

Again and again I have seen scientists representing the Electric Universe school of thought make successful prediction after successful prediction



That would be difficult. EU has no scientists, and they have certainly never predicted anything correctly. They are an anti-science cult, as Anthony Peratt describes them.

while at the same time our conventional scientists have to explain away mysterious data that doesn't fit with accepted dogma.



Really? Where did this happen? Care to share the secret?

Times, they are a changin'.



No they aren't. Real science is still being done by real scientists. EU was a science-free zone of Velikovskian myth and gibberish when it was born over 20 years ago. It still is. It has had zero impact on real science, in the same way that the comparable flat earth nonsense has made zero impact on real science.

Ian,

Thank you for providing some source material, I'll look into Professor Dave and see what he has to say.  I'll get back to you when I'm not working.

I have only just seen the edits you made to your post. The International Science Foundation you linked to is not the one used in the safire scam. That ISF is a charity set up by the electric universe people, specifically to take the money from the Mainwaring Archive Foundation (MAF) charity, and squirrel it  over the border to Childs in Canada. I have seen their Form 990 returns to the IRS. The ISF is set up in Wisconsin, and the secretary is associated with the Thunderbolts project.
The MAF is a private foundation (PF) charity, whose main donor is a Velikovskian crackpot, by the name of A. Bruce Mainwaring. He was associated with Velikovsky, back in the day. His son is part of the Thunderbolts team, and the safire project. As a PF charity, they cannot fund an overseas charity unless it is performing the same sort of charitable work as a similar US charity. Safire was in Canada, and certainly was not a charity. So, funding them directly would violate US tax law, and likely incur a considerable amount of tax. That is why the electric universe people set up the ISF charity in Wisconsin.
However, the first year that MAF funded ISF, 2013, they declared that the first tranche of money to ISF went to a legitimate science charity in Sweden, named the International Foundation for Science (IFS). It didn't. The exact same amount of money shows up in ISF's form 990 returns for that year. Subsequent payments to ISF were correctly identified as going to the Wisconsin charity. ISF never declare the origin of the funds they receive, and simply record it as 'safire income'. They never made any income.
Therefore, it appears that this smoke and mirrors game, to get the money from a US PF charity, to a private company in Canada, is in violation of US tax law. Which I  have reported to them.

As for the other link, to the crackpot alternative energy meeting in Holland - so what? There were plenty of crackpots there! Cold fusion types, amongst them.

EDIT: BTW, the 2nd link you added says James Ryder was the managing director of the IBEX mission. He wasn't. The principal investigator was Dave McComas. Ryder was a VP at Lockheed-Martin, who built the satellite. He resigned in 2011, around the time he started promoting his own unscientific woo known as 'spirit science'. He had nothing to do with the IBEX mission, other than being a VP of the company that built the instruments. Kind of like a firm that manufactures scalpels taking credit for the first heart transplant operation!

The diagram reminds me of the macguffin from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (Khaaaaaaaaan!), especially the way nuclear waste, which is literally underlined in green text reading "radioactive," is thrown in there without an explanation as to why it's there or what it's doing. It's like the protomatter in the Genesis device. It's the mysterious component, along with "catalysts" in the hydrogen, that is responsible for and explains the "transmutation" responsible for energy production over unity.

Two things stuck out to me before Ian launched his very detailed deconstruction. The first was word usage. Real scientists are definitely not going to use a term traditionally linked to alchemy to describe any new process. They'd use the terminology available to them in their field to come up with a credible and descriptive term that doesn't make one think automatically of alchemy, and people trying anything they could think of to remain young, or alive, or to create vast wealth for no work.

Any explanation that smacks of magical thinking is suspect.

The second thing I noticed was that nobody else in the world is really talking about them. If it had as much potential as is claimed, wouldn't we be hearing at least as much about Aureon as we are about the Bill Gates-backed synchronised solar mirror array set to replace fossil fuels in industrial processes requiring heat?

You'd have to silence the NIMBY party, but I bet that those heat engines the OP referred to, decomissioned coal and aging gas plant infrastructure that still heat water to make steam to move turbines, could be powered in at least half of the untied states year-round by such synchronised solar mirror arrays distributed in the areas to the immediate north of power plants retrofitted to be heated that way.

Is the term "overunity" used in professional circles, or is it an artefact of alternative energy conspiracists?

And the electric universe idea again? Everyone knows that the universe is underlaid with a vast network of interdimensional mycorrhizae.

This video does a very good job of explaining the shortcomings of mainstream cosmology to explain recent discoveries and the success of the EU to not only explain such phenomena, but to predict it.

Hahaha! No, it doesn't. You have linked to two videos. One is from a failed lawyer with zero science qualifications, the other is to a creationist radiologist with zero physics qualifications. What they both share in common is a total inability to understand basic physics., and a belief in scientifically impossible nonsense. As is trivial to show.

And EU have never predicted anything correctly. They don't have any scientists! They are a Velikovskian cult.

Well, Gosh!  It's been 8 long months now and it looks like Aureon Energy Ltd. is still in operation.  No arrests to make note of.  Ian?
Are you sure you know what you are talking about?  I think maybe you are confused.

I would love to see their financial position. I tried to find stock prices or investment opportunities but I cam up empty. I feel like watching the money can tell you a lot about whether the idea is legit or not.

Dan,
You will find in earlier news that Aureon had concluded it's "SAFE" round of investment fundraising"  
Per their claims, they attracted far more financial support than expected.  I was hoping to get into some sort of small position with them but the requirements stipulated that one had to be a "Qualified Investor", and that was someone who makes hundreds of thousands of dollars a year and has enough cash reserves that they would not likely be hurt if the venture were to fail.  Sadly, I do not qualify as such.  

I expect at some point the technology to be leased to the companies that own your local power generating station as at its core, it is really just another means to boil water and make steam for driving a turbine.  

Maybe somewhere down the road we can at least get some common stock.
