Also, I noticed something interesting on the PDF you linked:
Development of Improved Composite Pressure Vessels for Hydrogen Storage
Norman L. Newhouse, Ph.D., P.E.
Jon Knudsen, Project Engineer
Odd that the co-author would be listed as Ph.D. and he wouldn't. It could just be a personal preference not to have his degree included, but in that
case I wouldn't have expected a username like "MolecularPhD".
Certainly there seems to be a real Jonathan Knudsen who works in hydrogen storage research and development, maybe this is him and maybe it isn't. It
bothers me that he would have photoshopped himself a diploma to try to "prove" who he is, posted it on ATS, and then in this thread say he won't
give any personal details to protect his identity, yet also if I'm understanding JohnnyAnonymous' posts correctly still be maintaining to the
moderator he's supposed to show his credentials to that he is in fact Jonathan Knudsen.
Frankly, I could care less about the PhD; as far as that end of things goes I think the science should speak for itself if he ever gets into it. I
mean, either it makes sense or it doesn't, who cares if he learned it at MIT or off the internet? I don't pretend that I could tell the difference,
but I know that there are ATS members who at the very least could verify something he claims any competent physicist will understand.
I'm more interested in verification of the "insider knowledge" type claims, the claims of having worked for the military, etcetera. That's the
stuff where I think we have to somewhat rely on his claims of who he is.
