  Interesting. I didn't verify any facts, but it is interesting.

Shot down my idea of buying nickel related stocks!

Assuming that the process is as advertised and that the numbers are at
least approximately accurate, there are more things you might care to
watch for:

[1] Any breakthroughs in production of filamentary Ni fuel powder.
[2] Reactor design breakthroughs that allow the use of "wet" hydrogen so
that the hydrogen fuel component can be less expensively produced right
at the reactor.

You can use unslaked lime or road deicing salts as cheap dessicants:

Yes - but 100% drying for any extended period might be problematical.
I'd like to run one of these reactors in the neighborhood of 400C, and
have concerns about the pressure resulting from even very small amounts
of water being fed into the reactor with the hydrogen supply. One of my
interests is that of working toward a reactor design that either
prevents or somehow consumes moisture.


I spent Thanksgiving week at 11,000' in the Colorado Rockies visiting
family and catching up on grandchildren's interests and achievements -
no internet, no TV, no cable, no computer, no tools, and lotsa turkey.
It was great (but a long drive each way)!

Since I got back, I've soldered up a couple of prototyping PCBs on which
I plan to install an RTC and motor control circuits, finished a microSD
PCB for data logging, and spent some time puzzling over circuits and
parts for the little control computer.

One of the guys in the local Linux Users Group stopped by to drop off a
surplus 8-port router and asked me to put together a hardware "wish
list" with a comment that his employer might be willing to build some of
the actual reactor hardware in their prototyping shop.

Other than that, there hasn't been a lot going on. :-)
