On the other hand, that so many would be enticed into giving their money to this sham shows how desperate the global markets are for energy breakthroughs.
Is it only me who thinks it might be telling that the work is published with Wiley Online? As in: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiley_E._Coyotehttp://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/er.3142/abstract;jsessionid=E17D2817E628B7C19EF31DAAFAEE57D7.f02t02

John Wiley & Sons, Inc publishes academic papers.
I am pleasantly surprised to see the video was posted. After trashing BLP and Wiley Online, I shall - for my sins - watch this two hour video...
So does Blacklight work?
+ They are seeing 1KJ released from 0.01 ml of water in <1 millisecond. The demo released ~1MW.+ So energy density is 0.1TW per Liter of water.+ 1 Liter of water is equal to 100 liters of gasoline. (1h25m)
It seems to me that placing a little water between the electrodes of any old spot welder would make a flash and bang. We have to trust Mills that what we’re seeing is unexpected.
To be fair, I may have misheard a few things - the audio was recorded on-camera and hard to hear.I think they are generally referring to 1ms as the event duration, and then assuming you could repeat that 1000 times per second for max theoretical power output. So if 0.01 ml of water gives you 1MW, then a full liter could indeed give you a max of .01TW.According to Wikipedia the energy density of gasoline is 31MJ per Liter.It is a little suspicious to me that all the numbers are powers of ten.
I can't right now find place where he said the energy density was 0.1TW/l, so my notes may be in error on that. So at a minimum, he's saying 0.1TW is the max theoretical power output of a 1 liter system.
