Dr. Ruggero Santilli was born and educated in Italy where he achieved his Ph.D., the highest possible education in mathematics and physics, as well as a chair in nuclear physics at the Avogadro Institute in Turin. In 1967 Dr. Santilli was invited by the University of Miami in Florida to conduct research for NASA and he moved with his family to the U.S.A. where he subsequently became a U.S. citizen. In 1968 he joined the faculty of Boston University, under partial support from the U.S. Air Force, where he taught physics and mathematics from prep courses to seminar post-Ph.D. courses. From 1974 to 1977 he was a visiting scientist at MIT and from 1978 to 1983 he was a member of the Department of Mathematics of Harvard University under support by the U. S. Department of Energy to study a generalization of quantum mechanics and chemistry needed for new clean energies and fuels. Since 1984 Dr. Santilli is the President of and Dressor of Physics at the Institute for Basic Research, originally located in a Victorian iHouse located within the compound of Harvard University and moved to Florida in 1990. Dr. Santilli is the author of some 250 technical articles and 18 post Ph.D. level monographs in mathematics, physics, cosmology, superconductivity, chemistry and biology published the world over. He is the founding editor of three journals in mathematics and physics and editor of several others. Dr. Santilli is known in mathematics for the discovery of a series of new numbers, now called "Santilli iso-, geno-, hyper- and isodual-numbers" and other discoveries; he is known in physics as the originator of "hadronic mechanics", the only known consistent broadening of quantum mechanics predicting new clean energies; and he is known in chemistry as the originator of "hadronic chemistry", a broadening of quantum chemistry developed for the study of new clean fuels. Dr. Santilli is the recipient of numerous prestigious prizes (which can be seen in the web site ) for being among the most illustrious applied mathematicians of all times; he received two gold medals for scientific merits; and the listing as "Santilli Hall" of a class-room at an Australian research center. Since the 80s, Dr. Santilli has been recommended by scholars around the world to the nominations for the Nobel Prize in physics as well as in chemistry. In addition to his intense scientific activity, including the yearly organization of various meetings in new mathematics, physics and chemistry. From 2007 to 2013, Dr. Santilli has been the Head Scientist of Magnegas Corporation (a U. S. company with stock traded at NASDAQ under the symbol MNGA) that has developed a new gaseous fuels with complete combustion internationally sold under the name of "magnegas." Currently, Dr. Santilli is the Chairman of the Board and Head Scientist o the new publicly traded company, Thunder Energies Corporation, which is developing the cleanest possible and most efficient possible combustion of fossil or synthetic fuels.

Eng. Simone Beghella Bartoli
Scientific Advisor
Thunder Energies Corporation

Simone Beghella Bartoli is a Space Engineer having graduated from Politecnico di Milano, Italy. During his degree, he has developed strong competences in engineering space-related topics, and a particular interest for flight dynamics and mission analysis, participating during his studies as a mission analysis engineer to a project for phase-A feasibility study of a mission to Neptune-Triton system, whose results were also presented at European Space Agency Concurrent Design Facility in the Netherlands. As part of his master thesis, he had the opportunity to cooperate with University of Strathclyde in Glasgow to trajectory optimization studies for ESMO mission. Simone's background has provided him with a good basis for mission analysis software development and analysis, together with the ability to write scientific papers, technical documentation and reports. With this background he was able to conduct research, apparently for the first time, about the possible trajectories of antimatter asteroids in our Solar System, basing on the Isodual Theory of Antimatter, which implies among the other things gravitational repulsion between matter and antimatter

I was born on August 13, 1965 in Dordrecht, The Netherlands. Highschool was finished successfully in 1982 (HAVO) and I started my Applied Physics studies: Bachelor in 1986, Masters in 1991 and PhD in 1995. I also started working at the Delft University of Technology in 1987 after an interim year serving my country in the national army. The subject of my PhD study was the development of a neutron spectrometer. I married in 1995 and worked after my PhD for 1.5 year for the Röntgen Technische Dienst in Rotterdam as a researcher. I laid the foundation for a new measuring instrument called INCOTEST. It measures the wall thickness of conducting objects at a distance and is based on pulsed eddy currents. For this work I received the Van Ouwerkerk award in 2001. In 1997 I decided to start my own company to facilitate research of small companies. BonPhysics R&I B.V. now exists for more than 17.5 years and projects were carried out for several companies and institutions. Example of such a project is a feasibility study about neutron radiography. At the R3 department of the TNW faculty of Delft University of Technology he was involved in the realization of the neutron spin echo reflectometer OffSpec at the ISIS pulsed neutron source and used this instrument to measure the Goos-Haenchen shift for neutrons reflecting from a magnetic sample. He is an experienced experimentalists and involved in interferometric measurements of gravity effects on neutrons and is investigating the possibilities to measure gravity effects on elementary particles or antiparticles. Further experiments he is performing are based on fiber optics and standing wave sensors. Information on experience at BonPhysics can be found at . For details, please visit Dr. De Haan CV
