Science - A New Source Of Energy?


This sounds too good to be true. I sure hope it's true, though. I wonder if it could be used to power cars?

From the Sunday edition of the U.K. paper, The Daily Mail, comes this report of scientists who have apparently tapped into a "free" source of energy:
British scientists claim they have invented a revolutionary device that seems to 'create' energy from virtually nothing.

[...]

Even the makers of the device are at a loss to explain exactly how it works - but sceptical independent scientists carried out their own tests and discovered that the 12in x 2in tube really does produce far more heat energy than the electrical energy put in.

The device seems to break the fundamental physical law that energy cannot be created from nothing - but researchers believe it taps into a previously unrecognised source of energy, stored at a sub-atomic level within the hydrogen atoms in water.
The sad thing about this miracle discovery, if it's real, is that once upon a time, the U.S. would be producing this. Thanks to this misadministration, we have fallen behind in everything - science, technology, human rights, social justice, LGBT rights, women's rights, indigenous people's rights, the economy - everything.

And if you believe that, I have an electric generator to sell you. It's powered by trillions of subatomic squid. These squid are so small that they behave according to the principles of quantum mechanics. When the squid become aware of an observer, they all wave...

If only you had a scientific advisor in the house so you could ask for a sanity check. Oh wait.

Dude, I don't make the news, I just report it. I figure by now you are in SO MUCH trouble with me, you'd better bring a good digital camera (to take photos of the food, naturally) and TWO bottles of Navarro Vineyards Gewurtztraminer when you visit.

Wonder why they didn't take it apart to find the secret catalyst: miniature gerbils on treadmill! Maybe it's just plain uranium? Your squid hypothesis seems to be derived from the old ploggly hypothesis Brian: http://www.nicholasjohnson.org/writing/wsui0504.html

Maybe there's grand money to be had here!
