THAT LOCKHEED FUSION REACTOR… AGAIN

I simply had to blog about this one, folks, and when you read it, you'll see why. Mr. V.T, to whom we are grateful for giving us a heads up on this one, sent this article, and I must confess, when I saw the title of the article, I immediately opened the email and read it, rather than merely quickly scanning it and then sorting it into one of my "blogging boxes" that I use to schedule blogs (in case you're wondering, by the way, they are "quarter final, technical, and semi-final" with a recently added folder,  "final", for the rare cases of articles that go straight to the top. This was one of those):

Can Fusion Energy Be Obtained Without the Death Star?

Now, when I read the article, I was immediately grabbed by this picture:

Lockheed "Gizmo"The "Lockheed Gizmo"

Now, patience, we'll get to why I'm calling this the "Lockheed Gizmo" in a moment. But for those of you who are aware of thee story, or who followed my last blog about the Lockheed fusion reactor story, you'll recall that I mentioned the name of Philo Farnsworth, the quirky American genius who invented television (well, at least, in this country), and who also pursued fusion. Farnsworth actually patented a few devices, and claimed in the mid-1960s to have achieved a sustained reaction in one of them for a few seconds. This he claimed at a press conference, and then he, and his patents, were quietly shuffled off the stage, and the patent owner, IT&T, never talked about them again.

Now, note that the article is calling the above picture a "conceptual image" of what the Lockheed device might look like. And if you look closely at the picture, for you Farnsworth fans out there, it does look suspiciously like his Fusor patent, awarded on June 4, 1963:

Farnsworth Fusor

Farnsworth's 1963 Fusor Patent

Similarly, the dimensions of the Farnsworth device were said to be "a little larger than a softball,". OK, I thought,, so some artist out there knows about Farnsworth, and did  this "conceptual image." But then I watched the video linked at the bottom of the article, in which Lockheed technicians are interviewed against a backdrop of equipment looking very much like "the conceptual image"  and very much like Farnsworth's "Fusor" scaled up a bit.

So what may we be looking at here? The first thought that came to my mind is we were looking at carefully contrived disinformation (with high production value, after all, look at the video). How likely is Lockheed going to disclose any super-secret fusion technology right in front of the camera? Not very. So why the allusions to Farnsworth? Perhaps to deflect attention away from the concepts they're really working on; after all, Farnsworth's device is a hot fusion device, using a (then) novel method of containment. In other words, perhaps it was all, as I originally hypothesized, a clever bit of distraction from the other fusion story at the time: the University of Uppsala and University of Bologna's studies of Dr Andrea Rossi's ECAT "cold fusion" device, studies which concluded explicitly that nuclear reactions were occurring in his device.

But the other possibility is that perhaps, like all disinformation, the Lockheed story has some kernel of truth to it: "look at us, we got this crazy thing to work!" And in today's highly charged geopolitical tensions, one has to entertain speculations of all sorts, and here's a whopper-doozie: suppose one got such a device to work at various scales, from the small to very large, and suppose one allowed the containment on a large device suddenly to fail. One and the same technology - always under the aegis of that hugely subjunctive "if" - could be a new energy technology and, for all intents and purposes, a "clean" hydrogen bomb, without the nasty fallout effects of the atom bomb that is normally required as the "fuse" in thermonuclear bombs.

The bottom line here is, by releasing this video and this image with the clear resemblance to Farnsworth's concepts of half a century ago, Lockheed is playing, at the minimum, a clever game, leaving one guessing what the needle in the fusion haystack is, for note, as yet, they have released no hard data or conceptual details, other than these clear allusions to Farnsworth.

See you on the flip side.

  1. This is a marketing video – the kind they do to push for funding or investors. The production values are good, but not beyond even a good amateur these days.

    Notice the use of the “bright young scientist,” clean but not extremely well dressed. What demographic are they seeking here?

    Notice also the few clips of a torus suspended by three rods, forming a Y shape, subtly reminiscent of the “flux capacitor” from the “Back to the Future” movies. More marketing/advert psyop?

    This also reminds me of the “Atoms for Peace” marketing pieces from the 50s (updated style, of course), and could be a corporate marketing piece for almost anything.

    Farnsworth was brilliant, and given his announcement and immediate silencing, I would bet his device was taken black and researched heavily. The timeline they are laying out (roughly 20 years to full public use) is one they probably already went through and can stage in pubic with confidence.

    I also find the lack of virulent attack on Lockheed and Rossi after the latest announcements of “new” fusion technologies actually working to be highly interesting. I think this is the beginning of a release program, particularly since the Skunk Works video specifically mentioned controlled release to corporations already generating power, and the lack of ability to weaponize their design (“no proliferation concerns”).

    The 20 year release timeline also fits in with the best science I’ve seen (thanks for turning us on to Suspicious Observers, by the way) on the coming Mini Ice Age, of which we are already seeing the opening stages. S.O. and its sources seem to think that within 5 years we will have enough evidence to silence the “global warming” idiots (also a psyop), as the descent into serious and dangerous cooling will be undeniable. Give another 5 years or so for public debate and argument, and then ten years to develop and phase in the tech (also culling a few tens of millions in the process).

    This will allow a new “public push” for alternative energy, and Lockheed will already be positioned to lead with this fusion reactor. Given Lockheed’s deep involvement in the Black Projects world, they may have won the lottery to play public lead in this.

    It could be an elaborate hoax, but I find it odd that the Skunk Works would put out something so positive and specific about the outcome. If it were meant to fail later, they would be much more vague about it. I think that the mention of providing the generator to power companies already in business by retrofitting their gas-powered plants is a definite clue. Centralized structure/control is maintained, and that has always been a major concern over new energy sources. Hence, we have terribly inefficient solar panels and ridiculous windmills for our own homes, while they have things like this, probably already powering underground cities and secret bases, or even ships and planes. This could be the announcement of them reaching an agreement on the release of the tech, or simply just another milestone on an old timeline.

    It could also be a message to some “other party” at the elite game table that they are serious about moving forward. The public is, after all, just pawns and poker chips to them.

  2. Wow, more evidence of massive technological retardation. Where, if they would have implemented some of Tesla’s inventory, we’d have been mining the asteroid belt some time in the 50’s. However, it was ordained that we would be “Fossil Fools” for over a century.. When and if disclosure ever happens, it will have to be to a seriously dumbed down society, or there will be revolution in the streets. To be filed in a very large folder, titled “We’ve been farmed.”

  3. Given Ben Rich sixty year rule think ten years before Philo Farnsworth Fusor patent. And what drives me up the wall is this society obsession with new ways to mass murder every living thing on this planet. Is kill la kill and enslave la enslave all that gives meaning to the oligarchs of Western Europe and the both branch’s of the House of Abraham parasites of death.

  4. Warning to Iran: Beware of fusion reactor salesmen with German, American, or Hebrew accents.

    A hundred bucks says ISIS will soon boast of building their own 1960’s style hot fusion reactor for the nominal purpose of supplying the growing Islamic State with cheap abundant power which they eventually promise to sell to the rest of the world for pennies, if the potential buyers convert to Islam and trade only with gold backed ISIS currency. Of course they will need a good source of electricity so therefore they already built the volatile fusion reactor secretly in Damascus in a hidden ISIS laboratory near a power plant and the Syrian President’s palace.

    If I were Iran, I would dig up some old Persian spell books and quickly learn how to conjure up an army of genies in order to invade the computer networks of their sophisticated enemies in the US and Israel. If Dr. Farrell’s speculation is correct about hight tech seances and computer demon conjuring, it seems two could play this game. This would be the start of a true gremlin war. Imagine one day sitting at your computer when all the sudden a genie and a demon stumble onto your screen wrestling or waving scimitars? What entertainment that would be. What if the next proxy war between the west and it’s enemies takes place right inside our computers?

    1. Is it just me or does anyone get a sense that the guy in the video is lying, complete with the trademark guilty glance down and to the left, when he says their reaction occurs at hundreds of millions of degrees? He then does it again when glossing over proliferation.

      Believe it or not I think the proxy war is already taking place in our computers. Believe it or not someone, ostensibly China, has resorted to hacking two of the largest video game publishing companies. Before I’m laughed off the stage keep in mind we are talking about a $22 BILLION dollar industry that also happens to be one of the fastest growing markets. The industry being so popular and lucrative that even Forbes reports on it today. Now I don’t have any hard evidence for China’s involvement but bare with me here.

      So on the 11th and 13th two extremely popular online video games were released, Halo 2 Anniversary from 343 Industries/Microsoft and World of Warcraft’s latest expansion from Activision/Blizzard. (Before you ask, yes I know the games are rotting my mind) Both of these series have been around for ten years, are played by literally millions of people, and are huge huge money makers. These franchises, being so popular over a ten year period, are expected to draw a large number of players this holiday season including people that initially played at their outset, but whom have “out grown” video games. These two games have a very large number of eyes on them, their releases even being featured on mainstream television news. Halo being exclusive to Microsoft’s new console is certainly the major incentive to purchase their hardware, further entrenching the “new company on the block” in the marketplace. While blizzard has admitted their problems were due to DDoS attacks, (china’s hallmark) Microsoft has remained very quiet on the matter. Blizzard’s game has remained up and running but has required extensive downtime and maintinence to do so. However, Microsoft’s game is STILL down. It’s honestly unheard of for a game to remain out of commission for so long in todays day and age, especially after serious patching and people working around the clock on it. Games today are load tested and debugged extensively prior to release to weed out these very problems. All of which leads me to believe these problems are not of the normal variety.

      Primary shareholders of both game companies are Wellington and FMR, who also happen to be primary share holders in Rockefeller oil interests ExxonMobil and Chevron. The recent accusations pertaining to U.S. involvement, using NGO’s like the National Endowment for Democracy and Rockefeller Foundations, in whipping up China’s very own color revolution are key. If such accusations are not unfounded and the U.S. government is up to their usual dirty tricks they can certainly expect retaliation. Color revolutions aside our country has been at war with China for years, a war not fought openly on the streets but in the shadows of the intelligence world. The proliferation of cyber warfare brought on by this shadow war. The investors from above also own an immense number of shares in a multitude of the largest American corporations and banks making them prime targets for such cyberwar anyway. Although the American government and it’s largest corporations are electronically fortified with most likely military grade hardware and software I doubt that video game companies are afforded the same protection. This alone would make these companies good targets for attack. Like the record business, the game industry has undergone it’s own form of consolidation by corporate America, the publishers of these two games being the largest barons of the group. Not only is there a disruption in our economy from this but coupled with the fact that the results of such cyber attacks cannot remain hidden from the population that plays the games, unlike the hacks that are most definitely occurring in the corrupt… oops I mean corporate world, provides yet more motivation.

      China, in all honesty, may be on to something here. This could realistically be part of their plan to foment our very own sorely needed color revolution. By knocking us gamers offline they are riling up a large part of population base, surprisingly 59 percent of Americans play video games. As much as I enjoy them, these games are a method of control out of the social engineering play book, taking them out frees us from this literal mind control. Most hardcore gamers like myself are usually very intelligent people, but the majority of our intellect and our time is really wasted on things that have no bearing on the real world. If the games go down for long enough and continue to stay down despite fixes, eventually people start to wonder “what the hell is going on here?” These people then start to look into the problem, through our own curiosity and boredom inadvertently stumble upon what the real problem is in a microcosmic sense further leading to discovery of the all the macrocosmic issues surrounding it. I think I’m on to something here 🙂

  5. It would be next to impossible for a FUSOR to be a bomb, failure of the containment field and/or vessel would stop the nuclear reaction.

    In fact the FUSOR vessel is more about holding the electric apparatus in place than about containing a nuclear reaction. Then the container also prevents chemical contamination getting into the FUSOR, or out of.

    Now, with some pulse of electricity one could possibly generate strong electric fields and force deuterium together thereby making a clean hydrogen bomb, but where to source that electricity is a bit of a mystery if one want’s to make the bomb portable.
