Just like spaghetti rossis cold fusion,Lol
But when was this gravity engine due for test?
said that they were maybe 2-3 months away from completing the demonstration prototype,
They spent some money, yes, but relative to Blacklight power, not much:
I can't believe anyone would spend this kind of money on a machine that clearly will never work.
By 2009, BLP had raised about $60 million in venture capital...
"The BLP process, discovered by Randy Mills, is said to coax hydrogen atoms into a "state below the ground state," called the "hydrino." There is no independent scientific confirmation of the hydrino, and BLP has a patent problem. So they have nothing to sell but bull #. The company is therefore dependent on investors with deep pockets and shallow brains." – Park
Remember the Orbo? That also seems to has disappeared....

I'm no physicist, but are you familiar with a vehicles alternator? It produces power from simple motion. Yes, it is driven off of the vehicle which is providing the power, but the same concept applies here. If this machine could spin an alternator like device, would that not generate power? It's the same concept as a hyrdoelectric plant, except that instead of running water powering generators it is gravity/ centrifugal force by the looks of it. I think I can see how this machine works.

Building such machines is a waste of time.
I have said before also, and I am repeating here, that energy is NOT a problem.
The star of our solar system produces plentiful energy, that can be converted to useful work by multiple methods.
Humans need to focus on two things -
a. Using less energy by conservation and by building smaller homes
b. Building public transport systems for movement of goods and people that can use electricity directly
because there are no free lunches in physics
I have thought lots on this and came up with a theory.....
If a magnet moving in a copper coil produces a current and when a magnet moves through a copper coil it suffers from "damping".
So, If we shrink the coil and magnet down to the nano scale, the copper coil will act in time to the Schumann Resonance
Only if there is a load on the coil, then the "damping" will exactly measure the amount of energy transferred to the load.
Why? What do you see about shrinking something to nanoscale suddenly change its circuit parameters to "act in time with the Schumann Resonance"? First off, a coil won't resonate to anything without a capacitor, barring self-resonance effects. And the smaller you make a coil, the less inductance you have, a nanoscale inductor will have nearly bupkis for inductance. So any resonance you get will be in the microwave to THz region. Smaller = higher frequency. A nice resonator for 7Hz would be the size of a building, like the ones at Sanguine.

But if the magnet moves within the coil would that not put a load on it ?
My thinking is, If you put a house brick on a tuning fork that is resonating....not much would appear to happen, But put a grain of sand on the tuning fork ?
Actually, no. If the coil is open at both ends (not shorted) and not connected to anything (no load) the magnet will not feel any resistance.

Well, I think the idea would be to harness any energy produced, so yes the coil would be connected to something, be it a battery or a capacitor.
Just realised that I had been sidetracked by the term "load" on the coil .....There is no "load" needed for magnetic damping, as can be seen in this video....
