Notice how the article says they behave like they have more mass, not that they actually have more mass.
If electrons have 3 orders of magnitude more effective mass when they are within a matrix, then they can affect protons. Science is closing in on how the Coulomb barrier is overcome in LENR.
Funny how the article doesn't mention the Coulomb barrier, LENR, cold fusion, or fusion. You'd think they'd want to cover all bases for their Nobel prize.
Although Andreas Rossi e-Cat is already in the process of commercialization,
Is it really?
They’re making a commercial, to warn against fraud.
I'm not either. I hate exercise.
Energy and mass have a pretty direct relationship, right? E=mc2?
So they say. Even though there are 'violations' discovered all the time. 'Pretty direct' is probably about right.
If you cool the electrons, you are taking energy out of the system, right?
Well... maybe it's because cooling deprives the electrons of energy. If the electrons (like everything else on the planet) generate their own 'energy', then freezing them would limit their output. If they don't 'generate' their own 'energy' , where does it come from?
Regardless, we sure use a lot of energy to 'cool the electrons'. Seems like a mass loss on one end, and a mass gain on the other. Maybe that's how they balance the equation.
So how can the mass (which is basically energy) increase when you take energy out of the system?
Rather like saying that if you quit eating, you will get fat, isn't it?
My guess is that when you subject certain matter to extreme cold, it consumes a bunch of energy to produce a layer of fat, which causes it to 'slow down', so that the 'electron' can survive the blizzard. (I'm joking... maybe)
Either that or their observations are faulty. Why, wasn't it just this year that they discovered AN ERROR in the size of the PROTON???? Not that a tiny, tiny, miniscule error like that would make any difference in physics. : )
So... they waddle when they walk?
How many times does a person have to ask you to stop posting to them?
Please stop posting to me. Please stop stalking me.
Do not post to me Free Republic ^ | 8/28/07 | Admin Moderator Posted on Tuesday, August 28, 2007 5:47:37 PM by Admin Moderator http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/1888013/posts
Admins note: Trolls, troublemakers, disruptors, forum pests, malcontents, RINOs, liberals, stalkers, et al, would continue posting to (harassing) someone after being asked to stop. Conservative FReepers would not.
This will be my standard post to moonboy that says youre not worth trying to have reasonable discussion, also says buzz off & doesnt leave crickets. But if it offends you to the point that you get it removed like my prior innocuous citation then I’ll have to come up with some other ‘ignore button’ post.
This means I have nothing more to say to you about LENR. Bye.

You know FR automatically puts in a username into the "reply" field. It's almost impossible to remember to take it out every time.
The lame content of your posts is worth questioning and responding to. I can't help it if you have the sensitivity of a three year old when your name accidentally appears in one of the replies.
This is what the admin has to say about guys like you — you’re Trolls, troublemakers, disruptors, forum pests, malcontents, RINOs, liberals, stalkers, et al,
He also says you aint no conservative.
Quit stalking me.
The only reason you're being a drama queen and claiming I'm stalking you is you'd like to have me banned, so you post that non-conservative junk science unhindered.
quit stalking me
I have asked several times
Now we have experimental validation of varying mass within electrons ~ depending on entanglement.
In the real world, as distinct from the "electrons in a vacuum", you really could produce a lot of electrons with mass sufficient to affect protons.
Then, to put a coda to the whole issue ""It is remarkable to watch electrons moving in a crystal evolve into more massive particles as we cool them down," said Ali Yazdani, a professor of physics at Princeton and head of the team that conducted the study."
EVOLVE INTO MORE MASSIVE PARTICLES?
This guy is the head of the team and he says INTO MORE MASSIVE PARTICLES
He didn't say they were pretending to be more massive, but that they were, in fact, more massive!
This has to do do with quantum physics and the behavior of electrons in a crystal lattice.
Bet you thought it was about breaded chicken bits in a bed of lettuce.
Bite me, idiot.
Study up on what "effective mass" means in solid state physics.
He's not saying what you said.
Caution Mass is condensed matter physics is different from mass as it appears in other physics.
You have a problem ~ we get a neat article about some newly observed phenomenon, or finally after 30 years of observations somebody figures out what people have been seeing in their experiments, and you want to veer right off the article and have us read something else.
Your boys at Solyndra went down hard you know. Gentile is left. They aren't. So who was running a scam eh?
As far as non-conventional superconductivity is concerned, not cold fusion.
Yup, sho 'nuff. Read the article.
Why not read the original article, rather than the one geared to the general population?
Since I have to blow these articles up to about 14 pt type to read them, and they may require reformatting so they don't have the choppy line look, it takes time ~ I only do that once.
Another question for you though, what about that project with the Iranians to try a hot fusion project ~ you in on that one?
