New Energy Revolution-NOT

Randy Mills with his company "Blacklight Power" has been claiming for years he can generate power by putting hydrogen atoms in a "state below the ground state". As anyone who has studied quantum physics knows, you can't put a hydrogen atom in any energy state lower than the ground state. Its not physically possible and would violate the laws of quantum physics as we know it. Those laws have been repeatedly tested and verified to higher and higher precision over the past hundred+ years, and the theory of quantum mechanics is completely solid, so why should anyone believe this nonsense?

Apparently the goons at CNN don't care about the details of quantum theory. They'd rather get happy about Blacklight power's claim to no CO2 emissions, cheap power, 200 times more powerful than burning gasoline or coal. All based on a pseudo-scientific claim. CNN is supposed to be a news organization so they should have consulted some leading scientists in this report.

yea-and the world was flat too. Good thing its not the 1400's

Well, the laws of physics describe what we know.

Not what we don't know. There may be things which have been overlooked, people havn't paid attention to.
For example, dark matter isn't known for certain what it is.
So there's a chance that there's something there, really the only way to know is to either wait it out and see how it pans out or try to do some experiment to verify/nullify their claims.

I am really interested in what leading scientists have to say about these claims. As a quantum physics layperson, I'm not completely aware of many of the specific mathematical concepts, however, I am aware that at this point, quantum physics is undisputed-- I'm guessing that if scientists *did* find that it was possible to put hydrogen atoms below ground state that many other physicists would be looking into it.

would you blog about the buckyball experiment when they were shooting at the screen these buckyballs and they (the balls) kinda decided for themselves which path to take. I herd about this experiment somewhere I tried to find it on the net but I could not. It would be a good blog.
Thank You
