Hop, I said that it in some small sense already exists. I did NOT say what you inserted into the quote in brackets. If you want to quote someone, especially with the quote bar here at NSF, then quote them. Don't stick your words in their mouth.
A 50 kW BLP reactor is the size of a basketball so the power systems for this could, in that case be very small and hard to see.
3. when will that be available?
I think it is in a small sense already available. There's one running months now at Rowan University. There's a utility doing assembly on a commercial plant in NM or NV, I forget which. I don't know if there's anything one would want to launch quite yet but I'm sure CIA is fully aware of how close they are to access
AnalogMan:Thanks for that. Do you have a source handy ?

So where is it? Where is the stuff ready to use?
...This would be unique, as it would be a phyiscal process that nature hasn't achieved. Fission, Fusion, etc, nature does them....So if this lower energy status were possible, would it not dominate the Universe?
Attend the demo? Am I the only one skeptical enough to doubt they would allow anyone interested to attend the demo? From where Blacklight gets the money to keep running? Probably from charging people that want to attend their demos. I bet you either pay to attend the demo or you are SELECTED from a list of people who subscribed... and they probably make a good selection, only letting in people who will make press and NOT DOUBT their nonsense.
How long ago did Virgin Galactic start selling seats on their spaceship?
I'll wait for the demo.
BLP holds several patents based on graphic modelling software, but has had problems with other patents. A 2000 patent based on its hydrino-related technology was later withdrawn by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) due to contradictions with known physics laws and other concerns about the viability of the described processes. A column by Robert L. Park and an outside query by an unknown person prompted Group Director Kepplinger of the USPTO to review this new patent herself. Kepplinger said that her "main concern was the proposition that the applicant was claiming the electron going to a lower orbital in a fashion that I knew was contrary to the known laws of physics and chemistry", and that the patent appeared to involve cold fusion and perpetual motion. She contacted another Director, Robert Spar, who also expressed doubts on the patentability of the patent application. This caused the USPTO to withdraw from issue the patent application before it was granted and re-open it for review, and to withdraw four related applications, including one for a hydrino power plant. One of the four applications was so near to issuance that it appeared in the USPTO's Gazette as US 6,030,601.BlackLight filed suit in the US District Court of Columbia, saying that withdrawal of the application after the company had paid the fee was contrary to law. In 2002, the District Court concluded that the USPTO was acting inside the limits of its authority in withdrawing a patent over whose validity it had doubts, and later that year, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ratified this decision. Applications were rejected by the UK patent office for similar reasons. The European Patent Office (EPO) rejected a similar BLP patent application due to lack of clarity on how the process worked. Reexamination of this European patent is pending.In 2014 BLP announced having lodged applications for multiple worldwide patents covering power generation systems based on their SF-CIHT cells.
