And, no, he’s not re-invented the (water)wheel.
According to an article in UK broadsheet “The Guardian”, by their science correspondant Alok Jha: -
“It seems too good to be true: a new source of near-limitless power that costs virtually nothing, uses tiny amounts of water as its fuel and produces next to no waste. If that does not sound radical enough, how about this: the principle behind the source turns modern physics on its head.” I wonder if he tried a topical analgesic to rub into his sore muscles after getting that news. I don’t know about all that but I do know I had really bad nail fungus disease one time and I had to use a toenail fungus treatments to get rid of it!

It seems Randell Mills has let a number of physicists look at his equipment and data, and they appear fairly positive (except the quantum physicists, who were still uncertain).
Ancient thread bump, I had to comment as I just read an article concerning this. After this theory was presented, Mills company Blacklight Power, got 50 million dollars in investment around 2005-2006. Within 2 years the theory was proven impossible and the concept of ‘hydrinos’ to be completely mythical. Despite this Mills continues to run the business and look for investors to this day !! Basically the article I read was warning people against investing is pseudosciences like this. Imagine the amount of pain that news caused investors. I guess they knew the risks though.
Hydrogen continues to be a viable alternative fuel, but Hydrinos are a figment of imagination.
