Randell Mills and the Search for Hydrino Energy
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In 1991, when Randell Mills proposed a new way to extract energy from hydrogen, few believed it possible.
It took 25 years of research to explore a new field of chemistry made possible by a new kind of atom: the hydrino.
Now, Mills and his company Brilliant Light Power stand on the brink of commercializing an explosive new energy source that could bring an end to the era of fossil fuels.
Told as a personal journey of discovery, this book takes an inside look at Mills, his critics and collaborators, experiments and technology, and the broad impact his theories may have on our understanding of the universe. It also provides sweeping historical background to engage new readers.
This book presents that rare combination of hard science and engaging writing, achieving what the best of the popular science books do: Making complex concepts understandable to everyone. An engaging and fascinating look at both the history of science as well as what’s happening today.
“A monumental effort... at once a science history treatise and a business mystery story... that doesn’t short change the intense complexity of the scientific material for the background drama”—Kert Davies, Climate Investigations Center
Well written and thoroughly researched
A well written and thoroughly researched examination of the controversial physics theory of Dr. Randell Mills, and his company’s attempts in engineering products based upon it. At its center, Dr. Mills’ theory is an atomic theory based solely upon classical physics and relativity. The author does an excellent job of presenting the key concepts of the theory in laymen terms, weighing the evidence from the many published peer-reviewed journal articles on the subject, and places the events into historical context.
Holverstott also gives an interesting account of the development of quantum theory, explaining its philosophical motivations (largely influenced by the writings of Ernst Mach), and contrasts its differences with Mills’ theory and the philosophical underpinnings that drove much of classical physics’ development.
The book is well paced and keeps the reader engaged. I was also impressed by the huge bibliography, listing over 100 published scientific journal articles related to the subject matter. Even those that the author didn’t directly cite in the text.
