Someone is trying to change the world.

Flag GB Steorn is a company, based in Dublin, that claims the discover of something really revolutionary: a system that can produce limitless amounts of clean and free energy.

Ok, I know this is hard to believe, but more the three thousand scientists said they are interested in partecipate to the challenge Steorn is organizing and that will soon take place.

Here a couple of pieces from an interview appeared on the Guardian:

There is a test rig with wheels and cogs and four magnets meticulously aligned so as to create the maximum tension between their fields and one other magnet fixed to a point opposite. A motor rotates the wheel bearing the magnets and a computer takes 28,000 measurements a second. The magnets, naturally, act upon one another. And when it is all over, the computer tells us that almost three times the amount of energy has come out of the system as went in. In fact, this piece of equipment is 285% efficient.

“No one in the scientific community wants to become embroiled in the kind of controversy that Pons and Fleishmann faced,” says McCarthy. “With our challenge, we’re hoping to provide a respectable public platform for serious evaluation of the technology. Then, perhaps, scientists will feel confident enough to challenge the conventional view.”Certainly, the Steorn team seems genuine and well-intentioned. Walshe says that if the technology is accepted it will be licensed to manufacturers, but given away to electrical and water projects in developing countries. And, until their claims have been assessed by the jury, McCarthy says they won’t be accepting any investor offers. So if this is a hoax, it would appear not to be a money-making scheme; Walshe says the Economist ad alone cost £75,000.

Steorn slogan is a quote by George Bernard Shaw: All great truth begin as blasphemies. I really hope this is the begin of a truth.

Flag ITA Steorn è un’azienda, con sede a Berlino, che annuncia di aver scoperto qualcosa di realmente rivoluzionario: un sistema in gradi di produrre una quantità infinita di energia pulita e a costo zero.

E’ vero, sembra difficile da credere, ma più di tremila scienziati si sono detti interessati a partecipare ad un evento, una sfida, che si terrà tra non molto.

E’ anche apparsa un’intervista sul Guardian, di cui riporto alcune righe:

Il motto di Steorn è una celebre frase di George Bernard Shaw: Tutte le grandi verità cominciano come blasfemie. Spero davvero si tratti di una verità.
