Welcome

The Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project is a group dedicated to researching Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (often referred to as LENR) while sharing all procedures, data, and results openly online. We rely on comments from online contributors to aid us in developing our experiments and contemplating the results. We invite everyone to participate in our discussions, which take place in the comments of our experiment posts. These links can be seen along the right-hand side of this page. Please browse around and give us your feedback. We look forward to seeing you around Quantum Heat.

Join us and become part of the project. Become one of the active commenters, who question our work and suggest next steps.

Or, if you are an experimenter, talk to us about becoming an affiliated lab and doing your work in a Live Open Science manner.

I have put together a full list of all the steps of the experiment in the document:

Full Experiment Data List - This document explains all the phases of the experiment with links to the pertinent blog entries and the raw data files.  

This should help those of you with questions about the bigger picture and where the experiment sits and what has been done.  Please ask for clarification so we can improve the document.

You can also find this in the Replicate => Initial Replication Experiment along with the rest of the details about the apparatus.

At this point, we have 2 Celani inspired test cells built, the second of which is completing its calibration before being sent to Europe. These are more advanced in that they are built with fused quarts to withstand higher temperatures and pressures.

It is open - we are sharing daily what we are up to and will publish reactor designs also.

The purpose of the first 2 reactors is to multiply replicate, within MFMP, Celani's work. This is due diligence - we need to be certain that our gen 2 reactors will work as described in the live experiments in a plug and play fashion. We will then work with respected bodies to design a reactor for multiple certified 3rd party replication that will silence the critics of the New Fire. The aim is to remove the barriers to investment in all areas of this technology. Once it is incontrovertibly proven - there will be a wall of private and government money flooding to anyone that has any experience in this field. We want to break the dam for everyone.

Post breaking the dam - or even if others break the dam, we aim to support participants and provide education to all of the tech and advance its dissemination and accelerate its adoption.

To clarify:

Our current path is as follows.

  1. Characterise wires with SEM before testing.
  2. Test the first two reactors in US and EU at the same time and with the same active and control protocols, drive, data acquisition and other emission monitoring to establish for ourselves that the effect is real and worth further exploration. The results will be made available very quickly if not live and available for all to analyse.
  3. Work with a respected body to assess more accurately the behaviour of the reactor/wires in the best way possible and cross correlate with our own measurement methodology.
  4. Analyse wires post reaction
  5. Use experience gained in 1 - 3 and the assistance of respected authorities in the field to develop an advanced higher temperature and pressure 2nd generation reactor with integrated approved calorimetry solution.
  6. Socially fund a significant number of these 2nd generation reactors that will be loaned for free to the most capable and respected institutions around the globe as recommended by respected persons and voted on by the contributors to the funding process.
  7. Send a media team to each location to live stream the installations and meet the scientists performing the standardised tests. The entire test configuration is plug and play and will publish data live to the web and tools will be made available to live analyse the data by anyone. The test will be required to be run for a set amount of time.
  8. Institutions will then have the option to further study the cell - they will have the option to use whatever equipment they choose and take it where they want to - pressure, temp, excitation, control, analysis etc. within the limits of the reactors design and at their own risk. They will however be required to publish all results openly via the MFMP.

 

 

The "New Fire"

There are recent scientific experiments that hint of an incredible, clean energy future for the world. The effect goes by many names. We simply call it the "New Fire" because, if validated, it has the potential to replace most of the combustion energy sources in our world today.

Our Goal

Our goal is to facilitate the wide-spread replication and validation of New Fire experiments, such as Francesco Celani's, at reputable research institutions around the world.

Once proven, research funds and private capital will flow into the field and result in some amazing, life saving, and life improving products.

Our Plan

To make the biggest impact and overcome the hurdle of institutional bias against this type of phenomenon, we aim to make the whole process, from the apparatus to the procedures, to the whole plan of the project, as transparent and understandable as possible. We want this project to be for the people by the people as much as possible. We will be open about the plan, the designs, the process, the data and the results.

The other part of the plan is you. We will pursue crowd-sourced funding, crowd-sourced engineering, and hope for near real time scientific review. Are we 100% sure the New Fire is real and reproducible? No. But given there is significant evidence that it is, isn't the upside for the world worth attempting to validate it?

How you can help

  • We need to raise the money to develop and distribute copies of this apparatus to ten research institutions around the world. We are targeting $500,000. Donate here. Or bid to own a piece of this, hopefully, historic project. Donate.
  • We will be setting up a Crowd-sourcing initiative soon. It will be listed right here and elsewhere when we do. The idea of a global, grass roots effort overcoming the institutional biases and bringing this to the attention of mainstream science and industry is so cool. Of course, a visionary philanthropist who recognizes the potential of this and funds the whole historic initiative also makes a good story.
  • We need to get the word out that this project exists: Check out our web page, Like us on facebook, tell your friends facebook.
  • Follow our progress on our Progress Blog where we will share, day by day, the achievements, the setbacks, and the data.
  • Contribute to the engineering by posting suggestions and comments. Contribute to the science by adding suggestions about the experiment design and analyzing the data yourself.
  • We need suggestions for which research institutions should receive the first ones. Ask yourself or your friends who would you trust to confirm that the New Fire is real.

For a few brief weeks in 1989, Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons’ announcement of Cold Fusion captivated the world like no other scientific breakthrough before or since has ever done.  

The promise of a clean, non-polluting energy source that could change the world erupted into the global consciousness.

Unfortunately, though, the effect was not as easy to replicate as it appeared, and replication is the key to science.  Within a few short months, three prestigious labs tried and failed, which has ever since relegated the whole concept of cold fusion to “junk science” to most people.  Almost all funding for the topic dried up and people who worked on it even risked ridicule and damage to their careers.

Not everybody gave up easy, though.  For the last 23 years, small groups of intrepid researchers around the world have been slowly building on Martin Fleischmann’s work.  This last August, just weeks after Martin Fleischmann died, an Italian physicist named Francesco Celani demonstrated a breakthrough experiment at two international conferences.  

Celani's experiment was simple to understand, transparent to look at, and seemed to clearly showed up to 40% more energy out of it than he put into it over a period of many days.

Many of us attending these conferences were absolutely convinced that this breakthrough had to be replicated and brought to the world’s attention.  
...And the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project was born!

The potential of this technology, which we are dubbing “The New Fire”,  to improve the way we live is just too important not to work towards.  We registered QuantumHeat.org, set up a place to share documents, and started crafting 3D CAD models of a replica reactor.

Our goal is to facilitate the wide-spread replication and publication of New Fire experiments, such as Francesco Celani's, at reputable research institutions around the world.  Once proven, research funds and private capital will flow into the field and result in some amazing, life saving, and life improving products.
