Eric Lerner will be speaking Sunday, May 17 at an online Teach-in on the Coronavirus: Causes, Impact and Our Response. He will be speaking on “Energy, Finance and the Coronavirus”. The presentation will explain how fossil fuel use contributed to the pandemic.

This event is not sponsored by LPPFusion, but we thought it will be of interest to our followers.

The teach-in, with time for Q and A and discussion, will be via Zoom at 2:00 PM EDT. Send an e-mail to for Zoom details.

The documentary film “Let There be Light”, which features our work at LPPFusion, has recently been broadcast in translated version on French, German and Japanese TV. The French version is also available now here:

The new publicity has already sparked some investment interest.

An international scientific collaboration using the PALS laser facility in Prague has reported a major advance in hydrogen-boron (pB11) fusion. The report, published in January in Physical Review E, demonstrated a 40-fold increase in fusion yield over previous experiments at the same facility in 2014.

We very much regret that due to the awful immigration policies in the US we can’t consider applications from those who lack US working papers. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer. We encourage qualified women and men of all backgrounds to apply.

We provide competitive pay, full health insurance, and a stock option plan. Requirements: the type of degree is not important but we need someone with solid experience in an experimental lab and with HV equipment. Programming ability with Java is a plus as is experience with SolidWorks. Applicants must be able to start work in NJ by September 1.

For the first time in years, we are expanding our staff by seeking to another researcher to accelerate our fusion effort. This will be a full-time permanent position in one of the most exciting fusion energy research efforts in the world. We seek a research electrical engineer who will assist in all aspects of our experiments including carrying out experiments, data analysis, equipment maintenance and repair and the design of new parts.

While the cracks were bad news, our inspection of the beryllium anode also brought good news. The erosion of the electrode near the insulator has markedly decreased with the beryllium electrode as compared with our previous tungsten electrode.

Just as the LPPFusion research team was about to resume firing in March, we discovered that FF-2B’s anode was cracked. We’ve used the shutdown time, necessitated by both the crack and the coronavirus, to complete the design of our new switches, and to redesign the anode. We’re aiming to resume firing with these crucial new upgrades in the fall. This will allow us to keep to our plan of initiating experiments with hydrogen-boron fuel in 2020.

In episode 2 of the Real Crisis in Cosmology, LPPFusion Chief Scientist Eric Lerner shows that the abundance of light elements—helium, deuterium and lithium—can be explained without a Big Bang through the Galactic Origin of Light Elements (GOLE).

We’ve just learned that the documentary film “Let There be Light”, which features our work, has recently been broadcast in translated version on French, German and Japanese TV.

Had a great visit from one of our investors. It was great fun showing Jeff around and answering his questions.

He also took the opportunity to demonstrate to us his massage device...our sysadmin's first experience with one.

No pictures of'll have to take our word for it. 😂

At the start of the 20th century, humanity as a whole started getting more energy from than from wood for the first time. Since then the dominance of fossil fuels, due to their greater energy density, has rapidly grown. But now, in Africa, that transition is being reversed. The most rapidly growing fuel is charcoal from wood.

This week there has been enormous media focus on the spread of the coronavirus -19. Rightly so, because although the disease has so far killed far fewer people than seasonal flu, it has a far higher mortality rate than the flu and seems to spread as easily. A global pandemic could kill millions.

At first glance, this viral threat does not seem to have much to do with the long-term energy crisis the world faces, but in fact there are several important connections.

A recent press release announcing patents for a hydrogen-boron fusion idea from HB11 Energy, a new start-up in Australia has attracted wide interest. What’s the story?

People have asked us—how can we expect to go rapidly from where we are to net energy—when we get more energy out of the device than we put in. So we are going to show you the math. Here’s our plan:

But once we realize that the Big Bang story is simply not true and not supported by scientific evidence—which we detail in our video series—then we are looking at a very different story. We are instead looking at a universe that observations tell us is “running up”, a universe characterized by accelerating evolution.

The Big Bang theory tells a story of a universe that was “wound up” at the beginning by a giant explosion and has been running down like an old watch since then. A universe whose future is preordained as one of expansion and cooling to nothingness, to a state of final equilibrium.

Since we are part of the universe, the physical processes we observe in the universe are the same ones that can occur here on earth on a much smaller scale. In the hugely important effort to harness fusion energy as the next source of energy for humanity, what we learn from cosmic phenomena are the key to success. Indeed, the very existence of fusion energy was first discovered in the search for the source of energy of the sun and other stars.

LPPFusion boosted

We ourselves are a product of cosmic evolution—our sun and earth emerged from this process and biological and social evolution are also part of the evolutionary processes occurring in the universe. Learning in an accurate way about cosmic evolution can help us understand the evolution of our own society in the here and now. We’re not separate from the cosmos—we’re part of it.
