Achievements of Russian scientists that can change the world: from the cradle of LENR to modernity.
People who with their discoveries destroy foundations of the society, have long been perceived as “strange and other-minded”. They aroused fear, their proofs and works were thrown to pieces by theorists and “modern minds”. There have also been a few followers who repeated experiments with the same or even greater success, moving the science to new horizons.
If we turn to history, we will find more than one confirmation of the wild desire of a crowd to reject everything unknown. As the well known saying goes “Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it”. And in those moments when science was standing on the very threshold of discovery, there have always appeared people nearby, unable to accept the fact that nature and its riddles are much wider than the common human perception abilities. Thus, many scientific discoveries have been buried together with the experimenters, and the modern scientists have to scrape up all the knowledge acquired in the past and repeat experiments of great Russian scientists and researchers, spinning the wheel of progress to unprecedented speeds.
The first discoveries in the field of cold nuclear transmutation were made by Russian scientists in the last century. One of the innovators in nuclear physics was Mikhail Solin, in 1976 when these events were taking place in Ust-Kamenogorsk city, he was a young engineer-physicist.
Charged by authorities with a mission to smelt and purify a very large batch of zirconium, Mikhail Solin witnessed a strange behavior of furnace and the metal in it, which completely contradicted all the knowledge that he had gained and tested over the years. It also did not correspond to the known phenomena in physics and chemistry in general. The power consumption of the furnace was sharply reduced, and in the central part of the melt a red-hot cone was formed. After that the cone disappeared in the alloy, forming a well similar in shape. This phenomenon was cyclical in character and occurred several times. Due to the coincidence of special circumstances, Solin witnessed transmutation. According to the plan, the workshop manager ordered to set a record mark in metal smelting (as a result of this, the mass exceeded a certain critical level) and beat the previous volume record. Usually, when smelting zirconium, only small electric furnaces were used. An equipment of such size was used for the first time.
As one would expect, after a year of Solin’s theoretical work followed by another successful experiment, filmed on camera by an invited camera-man, people “from above” closed down the new laboratory, reminding the young engineer that it was a workshop, not a laboratory.
But, despite the reluctance of management to participate in the sensational discovery, Solin continued his work and came to the following conclusion:
- The new quantum nucleonic reactor (as Solin called it) functions as a volumetric resonator-accumulator of electromagnetic energy, which results in high efficiency — up to 85% (efficiency of a nuclear power plant is 35%);
- As a power equipment, the known electronic furnace is used, which is 1000 times cheaper than a conventional nuclear reactor;
- As energy fuel, environmentally friendly material, in particular zirconium, is used instead of the radioactive uranium and plutonium;
- The simplicity of the equipment design and implementation of technological processes, reliability and ease of the power plant operation, high efficiency lead to a significant reduction in the cost of the generated electrical energy.
Apart from this, Mikhail Solin made another discovery. During a nuclear transmutation there occurs not only a colossal energy release, but also some chemical elements transform (transmute) into others. As a result, the Solin’s work was supported by the Russian Foundation for Fundamental Researches and he received a Grant №96–03–34216а.
We should also mention Anatoly Vachaev, professor of Department of Thermophysics and Energy Systems at Magnitogorsk Mining and Metallurgical Academy (Nosov Magnitogorsk State Technical University). In the course of experiments on electric discharge in water, Professor Vachaev managed to obtain a plasmoid resembling a small ball lightning. This plasmoid possessed amazing properties:
1. It initiated self-sustaining synthesis reaction of elements in water.
2. The reaction was accompanied by electromagnetic radiation with a frequency of tens of megahertz and power of tens of kilowatts.
3. During synthesis, excess electrons were formed, which must be directed to the external load.
After stabilization of plasma with the help of launching, the installation (Vachaev called it “Energoniva”) was disconnected from the power unit and it could keep working for days.
After the official presentation of Energoniva, all the newspapers were released with breaking headlines like “Russian scientists have learned to extract electricity and chemical elements from dirty water!”
One could expect that the Russian scientist would receive universal glory and recognition, but everything turned out in a different way. Vachaev was bothered by envious rivals and those protesting against his discovery, thereby leading the scientist to a heart attack.
The powder obtained during the experiment is stored among exhibits of the Nosov Magnitogorsk State Technical University. Young scientists have tried to recreate the Vachaev installation using his blueprints, but because of the lack of financing, the latest developments of enthusiasts lie buried in dust since the middle of 2016 somewhere in the outskirts of Stary Oskol city.
Much earlier than Vachaev, back in the 1950s, a Soviet designer of low-temperature nuclear installations Ivan Filimonenko discovered an effect of heat generation in an electrode with palladium additives during electrolysis of heavy water.
Among the outstanding achievements of Filimonenko, one can mention the creation of power plants “Topaz-1” and “Topaz-2”, which were used on satellites “Kosmos-1818” and “Kosmos-1819”. Later he developed and created an environmentally-friendly thermoemission hydrolysis power plant, which has no analogues in the whole world. The operating time of such an installation is 5–10 years without refueling (with heavy water). In the 1960–68’s first encouraging results suitable for industrial applications were obtained. The output parameters of the electric power plant were 200 W, hydrogen and oxygen were obtained, as well as such components as helium 3, 4, tritium, oxygen 16, 17, 18, which indisputably testified the fact of obtaining thermonuclear synthesis at a temperature T = 1150 ° C.
However, instead of rewards for such an important discovery, Filimonenko was dismissed from the power plant “Krasnaya Zvezda” for political reasons, and did not finish the work he had begun.
Currently, there are many scientists engaged in nuclear transmutation and it has not sunk into oblivion, so that our descendants in the distant future will not have to attempt to decipher and recreate the blueprints. Thus, they will be able to use the already accumulated knowledge and experience, apply them in practice and increase efficiency. Yuri Bazhutov, well known in the LENR sphere for his work, a yearly speaker and organizer of the the 24th Russian Conference on Cold Nuclear Transmutation and Ball-Lightning (RCCNT&BL-24), developed his own reactor called “Fakel”. The power output at “Fakel-2” is 700 %.
Alexander Parkhomov, a regular participant of conferences on RCCNT&BL, presented his paper on “Cold nuclear fusion and a ball lightning” on December 25, 2014 at a seminar at the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia. Alexander Parkhomov managed to replicate the demonstration experiment of Andre Rossi! And to recreate the work of the E-CAT installation, the great Russian scientist used, mostly, some improvised means found in his summer house. Of course, such improvised materials are not enough to build and launch a large-scale, energy-intensive and heat-consuming installation. But the fact remains. All their experiments, both Bazhutov and Parkhomov, recorded on a video tape.
This represents Russian top-notch scientists as genial and surprisingly undemanding. Fortunately, the scientists do not stand still, even without any financial support from state institutions. The list of names of Russian bright minds and their achievements can go on and on — Zatelepin, Klimov, Urutskoev and many others.
But only a few could not only repeat experiments of their predecessors, but also achieve new results in the field of cold nuclear transmutation. As mentioned above, despite the fact that the method of energy generating was slightly different, absolutely all the researchers, apart from efficiency over 1000%, noticed transmutation of one chemicals into others. Moreover, in powder were found not only particles of gold and platinum, but almost the whole Mendeleev’s Periodic Table with different amounts of obtained substances.
Saveliy Kashnitsky, a news writer for “Arguments and Facts”, wrote in December 2009: “So who prevents us from adding to each atom of iron the necessary number of protons and neutrons to turn it into gold? Cold nuclear fusion (transmutation) allows to receive any amount of not only tungsten, platinum or, let’s say, rhenium, which is 10 times more expensive than gold. You can synthesize any elements of the periodic table, including those not discovered yet.”
Maria Curie was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1903 for discovery of Polonium and Radium through cold nuclear transmutation, which did not exist in the periodic table before.
Nowadays, from other scientific groups we can single out the “SynthesTech” team, who were not only able to repeat and comprehend all the previous scientific achievements of LENR, but also went further. They have developed their own “know-how”, thanks to which in the nearest future medicine, environmental cleaning, pharmacology and production industry will make a huge step forward. They will accomplish what the whole world community could only dream of 5–10 years ago.
