Blacklight hydrinos are back and get written up in Fortune

Those of you in the patent world with a background in physics have long enjoyed the saga of free-energy inventor Randell Mills, CEO of BlackLight Power, who claims (including in patent claims) that it is possible to generate (free) energy from hydrinos, which are hydrogen atoms one state below the ground state. The Patent Office, in one of its few times where it relied on the physics community and modern physics, has refused to issue any patents to BlackLight, arguing that it is false physics to argue that hydrogen can have a ground state lower than the ground state. Anyway, the September 2008 issue of Fortune Small Business has an article on BlackLight Power. The paragraph 112 test of the patenting laws is next Fall 2009, when they claim they will start installing the energy cells in working power plants.
