The FLOGEN SIPS conferences use a interesting business model. Nobelist keynote speakers are given a nice holiday, and with their status other participants are lured in. And there are plenty of awards to caress everyone’s ego.
Two years ago Ruggero Santilli sued me for defamation. He was not pleased by some sentences in a post I wrote about one of his inventions, the Santilli Telescope. This telescope with concave lenses can detect ‘anti-matter light’, which is something completely different from ordinary light according to the genius from Florida. He also sued professor Frank Israel, chairman of the board of Stichting Skepsis, and my web host, Hosting2Go. The lawsuit has now been settled. I’ll give you an update on what happened in those two years.

Fringe scientist Ruggero Santilli isn’t pleased at all with a couple of articles I’ve written about his activities. He tried to scare to scare me off with a peculiar letter from his attorney, Joe Parrish from Fortis Law.
