One quote leapt out at me from the “ Roswell debris “ film , and it was this :
“The opposite is also true …. Id you just Lower the piece into a liquid that is the temperature of tea water …it becomes so hot that you cannot hold it … and have to drop it ….. “
Wow , just wow – he has just idly claimed that this material possesses the properties of Maxwell's_demon and doesn’t think it is any more significant than a parlour trick
Ignoring for one second the near total lack of scientific rigour behind this claim .
Screw everything else , and “ hold the front page”
If you can demonstrate this “ power “ under lab conditions – it would change the
It beggars belief that such an important claim is treated so lightly
I for one would instantly try to “ break it “ by attempting to continue heating one end to see just what extreme of temperature could be produced at the other
And just what the specific heat capacity of the entire piece actually is
Of course , Maxwell's_demon is a tricky beastie , prone to all kinds of mischief – the first “ obvious “ flaw in any such claim [ esp. this one ] is :
One why doesn’t the object “ spontaneously “ heat itself , drawing energy from the ambient ? absorbing energy – or cool spontaneously , using the surroundings as a heat sink to “ shed “ its own energy ??
And more to the point – why does it not draw heat from the testers hand , as he lowers it towards the “ tea water “
The alleged properties of this material have already contradicted themselves . and the film makers do not even seem to have noticed , logic is indeed dead
