Robert Duncan’s Presentation for National Instruments
|July 2, 2012||Posted by Jack Cole under National Instruments, Robert Duncan|
Back in April, 2012, Robert Duncan gave a good presentation on LENR/cold fusion for National Instruments. Robert Duncan is the physicist, and associate chancellor of research, at Missouri University who participated in a 60-minutes interview in 2009. Sixty minutes asked Dr. Duncan to examine the claims of Energetics Technology of Israel with respect to their LENR reactors. Dr. Duncan, as a skeptical and objective third party, concluded that the work was well done and was convinced that excess heat observed by the group was real. Energetics Technology was subsequently moved to Missouri University to continue their work.
Dr. Duncan’s video below is worth watching, and it’s refreshing to see a scientist who has the intellectual honesty to follow the data where it leads. It is also of interest that National Instruments continues to maintain their interest in LENR technology, which is not surprising, since their monitoring equipment and software is often used for data collection in these experiments. Still, one might suspect that their interest goes beyond selling a few digital data acquisition units. The reader may also recall NI’s previous discussions and prior relationship with Andrea Rossi. In the video, Dr. Duncan displays the attitude of a true empirical scientist, and laments widespread reactions to Anomalous Heat Effects, as he calls them, from the scientific establishment.
