Has anyone in this forum heard of a Santilli telescope? I hadn't until this afternoon. And I don't think I understand what it is.
Thanks

Some info here, and on Wikipedia about the controversial man behind it. From an Internet search, since I was curious.

Apparently, you can view antimatter particles in space using concave lenses in a telescope... That's the basic design and function. 

 

Yeaaaaahhhh...it's a scam. smirk.gif

I didn't notice a brand on the small scopes in the video, but the large scopes were Explore Scientific housings, and I they looked like AR-152 housings (tubes).  If they were AR-152 tubes, then his light dispersion theory is rather easy to dismiss, since the AR-152 is baffled.  Maybe he removed the baffling?

 

Either way the whole thing has a very pungent odor to it.  If it was real the guy would be developing it in a project for NASA or DARPA.

Didn't that die with the Big Bopper? Santilli lace...er telescope? No wait, that was Shantilli Telescope. Too bad he died before ever building and marketing it!

 

Clear skies and maybe I'll look into marketing my own line of Shantilli Telescope. LOL!

Never heard of it, until now. I agree that it is a scam.

I can help with this.

 

First, eat at least 3 cans of refried beans. Next, eat at least an 1/8th of a cup of Ex-Lax. What you end up producing from that will be worth more than the SCAMtilli telescope.
