We are happy to give recognition to the dense
plasma focus fusion expert Eric Lerner, now a movie star, who
presented at our COFE3 event about ten years ago. The
documentary film “Let There be Light”, which features
Eric's work at LPPFusion, has recently been broadcast in
translated version on French, German and Japanese TV. The
French version is also available. Since then Eric has
consistently received more endorsements and funding since his
results keep improving as he predicted. The most important part
of his LPPFusion is the amazing concept of a proton-boron (p-B11)
target with high electrical current and NO radiation which is
four times as productive as the D-T, D-D laser or tokamak fusion
we always hear about.

Story #1 is a development of the greatest work of Nikola Tesla,
who died before seeing it proven. When I edited the book, Nikola
Tesla’s Electricity Unplugged a few
years ago, I collected the world’s best Tesla wireless power
transmission experts into one book, in hopes that the predictions
of the authors would be manifesting in the near future. Well that
future is here now. This article, “The Death of the Power Cable:
Tesla Tower 2.0” reveals the quiet successful research on Tesla’s
Zenneck wave by the company from the last article in my book, now
called Viziv Technologies. How about transmitting sufficient
power to run a motor 25 miles away? Check it out.
has an unusual plasma jet propulsion method using a microwave to
ionize a pressurized air stream. As the American Institute of
Physics Journal reports this month, using injected air and
electricity, a plasma jet can produce significant propulsion in
space to be superior to ion propulsion.
offers hope to those usually destined to a life of paralysis.
Instead, researchers in Madrid have found a novel treatment for
spinal injuries that operates like a scaffold, made of graphene
foam, which can be implanted in the spinal cord. Graphene is more
electrically conductive than copper so it is ideal for neuron
transmissions and does not present a foreign substance to the
body. More information is available on the Instituto de Ciencia
de Materiales de Madrid, Materials for Medicine and Biotechnology

#5 is one of the most exciting hydrogen producers ever made, in
my opinion. Just drop the module in water and it immediately
starts producing hydrogen and oxygen! Since the solid state
device is per solar-powered, with built in catalysis, it works as
a self-contained unit. Developed by Rice University, it can be
placed in the sunlight and produces hydrogen with no further
input. Soon we can envision the hydrogen production rate while
driving on a sunny day to equal the dissipation rate perhaps? We
shall see .
1) Death of the Power Cable: Tesla Tower 2.0
Tech company Viziv Technologies and Baylor
University last year announced a new research partnership aimed
at commercializing an entirely new method of providing long
distance wireless electrical power. This article will tell you
what this is all about.
Lead Innovation Blog, May 2020
company Viziv Technologies (formerly Texzon) built a
strange-looking tower at Interstate 35 near Milford Texas at the
end of 2018, reminiscent of Nikola Tesla's Wardenclyffe Tower.
The Tesla Tower was built at the beginning of the 20th century
and was supposed to supply energy wirelessly all over the world.
However, the project was never completed. After Tesla could not
pay the mortgage for the property, the tower was scrapped by
creditors in 1917.Michael Taylor, Vice President of
Communications at Viziv Technologies, commented on the similarity
of the Viziv Tower with the Wardenclyffe Tower as follows: As
with all scientific progress, our work would not be possible
without the pioneering work of the scientists and engineers ahead
of us. It's flattering to be compared to a visionary like Tesla,
but Viziv's engineering team has the advantage of modern computer
modeling, more precise instrumentation and one hundred years of
scientific development. We are simply blessed to have the right
tools at the right time for this particular breakthrough.“
2) Fossil Fuel-Free Jet Propulsion with Air Plasmas
A team of researchers at the Institute of
Technological Sciences at Wuhan University
has demonstrated a prototype device that
uses microwave air plasmas for jet propulsion.

depend on fossil fuels as their primary energy source, especially
in transportation. However, fossil fuels are both unsustainable
and unsafe, serving as the largest source of greenhouse gas
emissions and leading to adverse respiratory effects and
devastation due to global warming.Beyond solid, liquid and gas,
plasma is the fourth state of matter, consisting of an aggregate
of charged ions. It exists naturally in places like the sun’s
surface and Earth’s lightning, but it can also be generated. The
researchers created a plasma jet by compressing air into high
pressures and using a microwave to ionize the pressurized air
3) Healing Spinal Cord Injuries with Graphene
cord injuries often result from impacts such as car accidents, but
they can also occur due to tumour growth and other non traumatic
causes. They can leave patients fully or partially paralysed and
can affect the functioning or organs leading to a myriad of health
complications. Now, a group of researchers at the Materials Science
Institute of Madrid (ICMM) in Spain is developing a novel treatment
using graphene – a single layer of carbon with unique mechanical
and electrical properties.
4) Affordable Energy Now Means Zero Emissions
Allam-Fetvedt Cycle is reinventing emissions capture from its
of our planet – considering a rapidly growing global population –
demands a balanced portfolio of renewables and carbon-based methods
of power generation, particularly those employing carbon capture.
Free emissions capture is the holy grail of carbon-based power
generation. Today, power cycles require the addition of expensive,
efficiency-reducing equipment to decrease and capture emissions. The
Allam-Fetvedt Cycle is a new type of power cycle that takes a novel
approach to emissions reduction. It uses the oxy-combustion of
carbon fuels and a high-pressure supercritical CO2 working fluid in
a highly recuperated cycle that captures all emissions by design.
The only by-products are liquid water and a stream of high-purity,
pipeline-ready CO2. The cycle can utilize a variety of fuels,
including natural gas, unprocessed raw and sour gas, and gasified
solid fuels such as coal or biomass. The Allam-Fetvedt Cycle
embodies major advantages over conventional systems: attaining high
efficiencies at low costs with low to no water consumption. All this
with full, free emissions capture.
carbon dioxide and storing it underground seems a no-brainer,
according to the new calculus of a changing climate. But it has a
dirty downside: It burns a lot of energy, which typically means it
spews a lot of other pollutants.
