In April I visited the laboratory of Defkalion Green Technologies and watched a demonstration of the Hyperion, an invention that seems to offer more hope for a clean-energy future than anything presented by conventional alternatives. I wrote an article Defkalion 2 page JM Article #100 (3) about the visit, since I had a deadline looming for a bimonthly column.
At the request of the magazine publisher/editor Doug Kenyon I’ve been writing the column, titled Report From the Front, for Atlantis Rising magazine for nearly nine years — after the untimely death of my friend Dr. Eugene Mallove. Gene had for some years been writing — for the same magazine — a column titled The Heretical Scientist. Like so many of his friends I fervently wish he was still here, educating us and sharing his wit and enjoyment of life. Gene would have also appreciated the ideals and the human warmth of the Defkalion team as well as their accomplishments and scientific insights.
