Accountability

Brett Holverstott

I think it is about time the community begins to hold scientists accountable for their claims in the public media regarding hydrino research, just as surely as we do for climate research. Christopher Sirola, a professor in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Mississippi, has made the following claims:

(1.) "That there is absolutely no evidence for fractional energy levels"

(2.) "if I had strong evidence like this, I would submit it to standard journals in the field, allow other physicists to review my results, and hold the debate in a professional forum." The implicit, but unstated accusation here is that Randell Mills has not submitted evidence to standard journals in the field to allow other physicists to review his results.

Both of these claims feel true. Perhaps Sirola wants them to be true, because it would save him the trouble of learning something new. They satisfy what Stephen Colbert might call "truthiness" and in recent years, scientists who have done absolutely no work in the field of hydrino chemistry have made similar comments in the popular press.

Let's check professor Sirola's facts, starting in reverse order:

(2.) In fact, contrary to popular opinion, Randell Mills and his team of scientists have published over 100 experimental journal articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals over the last 25 years, claiming evidence for fractional energy levels of hydrogen. If you don't believe me, here is a partial list. Caution, it is really fucking long.

Most of the articles are in the IJHE, but the editors of two dozen other journals have also published papers of Mills, his team, and collaborators. Those new to Mills's work may be confused why a theoretical breakthrough regarding the hydrogen atom has for so many years been reported in specialty experimental and energy-related journals, but it is important to remember that this is experimental work, plain and simple.

But wait, these are just journal articles. Maybe I should also add issued technical or validation reports by outside physicists who were given the opportunity to review Mills' results? These do not hold the same level of scientific weight as journal articles, yet they are an important part of the scientific discourse if the authors are, like Sirola, a professor allied with a respected institution. Unlike Sirola, these authors actually did some work before they opened their mouth.

Wow, that's probably enough for now. I think it's fair to say that Sirola was wrong on this particular point. Let's move on.

(1) I dare say that if Sirola bothered reading any of the above studies, he might find some evidence there, but I can briefly summarize some of it for him in advance.

a) NMR identification of upfield shifted peaks in hydrino hydride compounds

b) XPS identification of hydrinos and hydrino hydride ions.

c) EUV emissions in hydrogen plasmas corresponding to hydrino transitions, and matching unidentified lines from the sun and the interstellar medium

d) Emissions of bell-shaped continuum radiation corresponding to hydrino transitions in pinch-discharge plasmas

e) Formation of excessively bright plasmas, emitting primarily in the EUV, with extremely low initiation voltages, with long-lasting afterglow durations, and with unexpectedly high line broadening in all directions, indicating the plasma is chemically-assisted, but only performing with certain hydrogen and mixed-hydrogen plasmas. Some of these plasmas also exhibit sustained lyman or balmer series inversion.

f) High heat gains from several generations of electrochemical cells with hydrino catalysts.

g) High heat gains from a variety of "batch" calvet cells with hydrino catalysts

i) new compositions of alkali and alkaline earth hydrino hydrides from X-ray crystal diffraction studies

j) identification of rovibrational transitions in hydrogen plasmas and in trapped crystal structures corresponding to hydrino molecules

k) identification of spin-nuclear coupling of hydrino atoms in far-infrared absorption studies of cryogenically cooled hydrogen

l) And, I should mention, high-current induced explosions of capsules emitting primarily in the EUV and soft X-ray wavelength, which later led to Mills's sustained explosive reactions that are being commercialized as the Suncell.

This is some of the evidence that has been proposed. Not all of it. Also see:

Master list of BLP publications (on BLP website)

Summary of hydrino evidence from BLP (below)

I should point out that this evidence has not been widely scrutinized by the scientific community outside the dozens of researchers directly involved. Wide scrutiny and engagement is the logical next step to confirmation or disconfirmation of the claims; but wide scrutiny cannot occur if ignorant, outspoken members of the scientific community continue to deny that it exists.

I realize that there is often a high barrier for investigating new discoveries. And I realize that there are aspects of Mills's proposal which, on first glance, smack of pseudoscience: new states of hydrogen, new energy technology, new theories. It sets off all the warning bells, and that is what makes the topic so interesting both from a scientific perspective and a psychological / sociological one. And I sympathize with the larger point of Sirola's article, which is to say that I have very little patience for fringe science and pseudoscience.

But in this particular case, the claims of Mills, his team, and his collaborators, may be grounded in genuine experimental realities that will force us to learn something new about the hydrogen atom.
