When a scientific discovery is made, the work is published in scientific magazines for peer review.
It can also be duplicated all over the world.
When a scam starts, there is a lot of publicity and invitations to ‘invest now’. The discovery is always nearly ready - ‘just give us a little more money’.
There will also be scientific mumbo-jumbo.
From the Steorn site (bolding mine):
Following three years of development, in August 2006 Steorn issued a challenge to the world’s scientific community to test our technology and report the findings. The challenge was issued in a full page advert in the Economist magazine… :rolleyes:
Over 5000 people applied to become involved in the process of validation, including nearly 500 qualified scientists. :smack:
The validation process began in January 2007 and is **expected to conclude ** by the end of this year.
Orbo is based upon the principle of time variant magneto-mechanical interactions.
The biggest scientific discovery of all time … or a scam - you decide!
