Free Energy is in the news again, but this time with a twist. Steorn, a Dublin, Ireland based hi-tech company has run an ad in Britain’s Economist magazine challenging the world’s top scientists to come and disprove its new free-energy technology. The ad seeks 12 top physicists to serve as a kind of jury to investigate their claim, which essential­ly disputes one of the stated basic laws of physics—that you can’t get more energy out of a system than you put in— and report to the world. The ad has made a big splash.

“We expected a good response,” says Sean McCarthy, Steorn’s chief executive officer, “because of its potential and its implications for the scientific world. Our technology goes far beyond scientific curiosity and addresses many ur­gent global needs.”

McCarthy says he started out as a skeptic himself, but that he has become convinced this is the real deal. He told Reuters the discovery came as researchers tried magnets to devise more efficient wind generators. Now more than three years have been spent developing it. Somehow, says McCarthy, the interaction of magnetic fields produces a constant stream of free energy more than five times the amount of energy in a mobile phone battery of the same size, but it does not require recharging. The technology is reported to be applicable to virtually all devices requiring ener­gy, from cellular phones to cars.

Steorn intends, reports Technology News Daily, to allow its discovery to be used for certain purposes, including water and rural electrification projects in third world countries, royalty-free.

Not surprisingly, the announcement was greeted with derision. Martin Sevior, associate professor at Melborne University, told The Age, an Australian newspaper, “It flies in the face of 2000-years-plus of physics. It’s an incredibly big claim.” Sevior said he was willing to investigate the technology but he “would want to see what is behind the cur­tains.”

The news comes as no surprise, though, to many alternative energy investigators who have long believed it is pos­sible to tap into the limitless sea of energy from which all existence emerges. Many of their efforts have been reported in Atlantis Rising by Jeane Manning, the late Dr. Eugene Mallove and others. It remains to be seen if this develop­ment represents the long-sought breakthrough, but there are hopeful signs.

Within seven days of the publication of Steorn’s ad in the Economist, 3313 scientists in Europe, America and Aus­tralia had asked to be included in the jury and another 39,722 had registered to be sent the results.

The headline in the Steorn ad in the Economist and the featured text on the company’s web site ( is a quote from George Bernard Shaw, “All great truths begin as blasphemies.”
