But sadly he could never use it since making such device or using it was forbidden, and he knew that the government would come and confiscate his machine.
DePalma completed his studies from Harvard university and later taught physics at the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology for over a period of 15 years.
According to his claim, the free electricity generator developed by him has the potentials of providing inexpensive, unlimited, self sustaining, and a pollution free source of energy through principles that simply flout the laws as laid down by conventional physics.
Mr. DePalma claims that his N Machine could pluck out the "free energy" inherently concealed in the space all around us.
He strongly believes that his invention could simply put an end to the ever growing energy demand, which is dangerously dependent on a limited stock of polluting oil and gas reserves.
The design of DePalma's N Machine is simple, it incorporates a copper disc magnetized through clamped two adjacent disc magnets, and a central axle with oil assisted ball bearings.
When rotated at high speeds through an external motor drive, an electrical power is developed across the central axle and the outer circumference of the copper disc which amazingly exceeds 2 to 3 times than the drive power utilized for running it.
This result blatantly defies the standard laws of thermodynamics, according to which an output energy from any device can never exceed its input power.
All expert physicist just refuse to pay attention and dismiss DePalma's discovery because they believe that anything that does not obey the standard laws physics cannot be authentic.
However, DePalma apparently proved his invention when he built and presented a large N Machine nicknamed the sunburst, in 1978 in Santa Barbara, California.
The Sunburst machine was privately tested by Dr. Robert Kincheloe, professor at emeritus of electrical
engineering at Stanford University.
According to his report presented to the society fort scientific exploration, San Fransisco in the year 1986, the N machine created by DePalma exhibited only 13 to 20 percent drag Resistance compared to the conventional high grade motors operating at 100% efficiency, which implies that the N Machine was capable of generating a 500% efficiency results...or a 5 times more output than what it consumed to operate.
In Kincheloe's cautious summary: "DePalma may have been correct in
that there is certainly a condition here wherin energy is being acquired from an unknown and unexplained source earlier not identified.
This is a
conclusion that many researchers and physicists would dismiss without consideration, and it may be a violation of prevalent laws of physics and if this at all works may result in severe implications".
"The jury is still out on the DePalma N machine," says physicist
Harold Puthoff, a senior fellow at the Institute for Advanced
Studies in Austin, Texas.
"It isn't apparent where the reported overunity
energy is emanating from--whether it's out of the electromagnetic field or due to some anomaly connected with rotating elements relating to
The DePalma Nmachine should be manufactured on a large scale
to verify if it really works as per the reports.
Though I'm quite skeptical, I to a great extent
would love to encourage independent laboratory trials.
Although such an occurrence would have appeared to be completely opposed to the law of
energy conservation many years back, we presently acknowledge that the
prospects for extracting energy out of so called empty space is in
fact a definite possibility".
The Power of Magnetism
According to DePalma, the space all around us is like an ocean where we are like fishes swimming in it. The only way to identify its presence is by forcing it to distort by some means, and the easiest device which can be used for forcing a distortion is through a magnet.
While working at MIT as a professor in physics during his tenure of 15 years, DePalma could feel an increasing unhappiness cropping in him against conventional physics and its laws.
The views expressed by him would hit the traditional scientific thinkers as heresy.
For instance, according to the traditional scientific concept, energy is strictly a constant parameter across the entire universe, and a transformation of energy from one form to another will cause a heat-death of the universe eons, however DePalma's views are totally different to this, according to him the universe is an open ended place, which allows you to evoke energy from the space itself, and this extraction or release of energy from space can be initiated through many different ways, the simplest being by igniting a match stick or by rubbing two sticks together.
Let's take the example of a candle, when we ignite a candle, the lighting up of the candle and its sustained heat becomes possible by the extraction of latent energy inside the wax, this is what we all know according to the conventional....... that's rubbish says DePalma.
The law of conservation of energy is just an assumption...according to DePalma's belief the flame of the candle derives its energy directly from the space and the wax is gradually consumed by this energy of space flowing through it.
Quite identically when a car runs, according to the conventional science, heat is derived from the latent energy inside the gasoline, isn't it? Nope, that's incorrect.
The actual process takes place with the action of the gasoline and the air mixture, catalyzed by the ignition spark, together behaving like a "molecular antenna" for initiating the extraction of energy from space. Heat energy thus obtained in the process burns the gasoline, producing exhaust.
Magnet is another simple tool which can be used to distort the space and unlock the abundantly available energy from it. Since magnetism is never consumed like wax or gasoline, it possess the ability to extract this free energy without getting exhausted and infinitely.
In his free energy generator or the N machine, DePalma believes that the electrical current is sucked from the space itself with the help of the magnets, and not due to the action of the magnet/conductor rotation, as may be assumed by conventional physics.
In the next part of the article we will learn how to make the DePalma's Free energy generator..
