    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    a guy in a hostile blog has written that when you write ” kWh/h” to indicate energy you make a mistake due to your poor knowledge of mathematics, because the h at the numerator and the h at the denominator cancel each other and remains only kW. What do you answer?
    Dan

  2. Andrea Rossi

    Dan:
    HA,HA,HA,HA,HA !!!
    That statement is a paradigmatic example of the fact that, as Prof Umberto Eco wrote, in the blogs every imbecile can sell himself to somebody as a scientist even if he is an analphabete.
    As every person that has a knowledge of the concept of energy will confirm to you, kWh is a quantum of energy: this is the shortcut of the full name, that is ” kilowatthour”.
    Therefore, when you write x kWh/h, you shortcut the expression ” x kilowatthour/h”, which means the kilowatthours that you are generating or consumong in one hour are x.
    To say that the two H eliminate each other because one is in the numerator and the other is in the denominator is not just wrong, it is extremely stupid, because is like to eliminate the letter h from the word kilowatthour at the numerator, where an amount of energy is defined, and the total time from the denominator, which is the time during which the energy is produced or consumed. The guy who wrote this bestiality not only has not a minimum knowledge of Physics, but also of Mathematics, because not only has not understood what is the concept of energy, but also how the fractions work and when they can be reduced.
    He,he,he,he…

    Dear Andrea,
    We are talking about sending just a small probe with a few instruments that can send data back. With enough power density of new technologies it can accelerate for a long time to a decent fraction of the speed of light. It is not inconceivable.
    Regards.

  4. Andrea Rossi

    Patrick Ellul:
    Well…to send an E-Cat in a satellite can be done, independently from the destination, that can be more or less realistic. In this sense, I follow you.

  5. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    I have some questions which came up after reading your answers to Eugenio Mieli:
    1. You are now producing industrial plants; will they also be delivered this year (2016)?
    2. Is it likely that one of the customers is willing to publish the data of these plants openly on the internet?
    3. How do you intend to present the QuarkX? Will it be a public demonstration? Or just the confirmation of QuarkX data we already know? (I Obviously hope for the first option!)
    4. Is mass production plants being designed for the QuarkX only or also for the industrial Ecat plants?
    5. My last question is about the theory under development: Do you believe that the Widom-Larson theory ( which assumes an fusion between a proton and an electron, producing an ultra-cold neutron which is absorbed by nearby atoms the then causes the decay of atoms like Ni, Al and Li or others in PdD reactions) is totally wrong or may it partly be right?
    Thank you for answering our questions!
    Kind regards, Gerard

  6. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    1- maybe
    2- this does not depend on me
    3- obviously in due time the QuarkX will be introduced to the public
    4- for all our production
    5- I prefer not to comment the work of our competitors.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea
    Juno the spacecraft is currently orbiting jupiter at 40 km/s, with its relatively old technology.
    Best regards
    Patrick

  12. Andrea Rossi

    Patrick Ellul:
    Same answer I gave to Dima Redko. But I sympathyze you: the mileage for an FF is very attractive.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  13. Dima Redko

    Dear Andrea,
    About the calculations you made about the spaceship’s velocity you wrote “1 km/s, being very optimist”. But 1km/s is not even enough to reach 1st spcace velocity necessary to launch a satelite to the Earth’s orbit. To leave the Solar system spaceship must reach the 3rd space velocity, being 16,6 km/s relative to Earth and 46,9 km/s relative to the Sun. And these speeds are practically reachable nowadays even with what unadvanced technology humanity posesses at the moment

  14. Andrea Rossi

    Dima Redko:
    We are talking of spaceships able to host humans for hundreds of thousands of years, not of satellites. But even if we accept, by absurd, your calculation, you still need 90 000 years for a round trip. You sure it makes sense, even in the absurd assumption that to speed up a satellite carrier is the same as to launch and trip up a spaceship as big and heavy as a cruise ship ? I hope you all are joking, as I am; do you understand that if the trip to go lasts even ONLY 10,000 years the humans that will arrive a to destination will be generations aging ten thousand years after the generations that participated to the take off ? Like to say that the humans that populated the Earth 10 thousand years ago are the ones who started and the humans of today are the ones that arrive ? And consider that 10 000 years means 4 times faster than you are saying. Obviously we all are joking ( I hope ).
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  15. Dear Hank Mills,
    Remember, though, that the E-sail cannot reach a higher speed than the solar wind speed, which is roughly 800 km/s (about half that in the ecliptic plane). With that speed, triptime to 4.25 light year distance would be 1600 years. In practice at least 2000-3000 years because the theoretical upper limit cannot be reached.

    One idea that has been proposed is to travel, with the E-sail, to Sun’s gravitational focal line (>=550 au) and then use the entire Sun as a “lens” for looking at an opposing exoplanet or other interesting astronomical target with very high angular resolution. For example with 200 km/s speed, triptime to 550 au is 14 years.
    regards, /pekka

  16. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for your answers. However, the new exoplanet discovered is orbiting Proxima Centauri which is only 4.25 light years away. If humanity will ever send a probe to an exoplanet, this is the closest possible candidate there will ever be. And with an electrostatic sail powered by an E-Cat, a probe could theoretically create its own electric field and use the solar wind to accelerate it over multiple revolutions around our sun until a fraction of light speed is achieved. The probe might take decades to arrive at Proxima, but it is not impossible.

    Sincerely,
    Hank

  17. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    I suspect our foes paid you to convince me to go to the exoplanet.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  18. Patrick Ellul

    Dear Andrea,
    1) Proxima Centauri is actually “just” 4.5 lightyears away.
    2) Power is also used to rate the maximum of energy that an apparatus can consume.
    Regards,
    Patrick

  19. Andrea Rossi

    Patrick Ellul:
    1- You are right, I was wrong: the exoplanet is “only” 4.5 lightyears away, but the substance of the comment does not change: if to reach the exoplanet takes 4.5 years at the speed of light in the vacuum ( circa 300 000 km/s ), at a speed technologically sustainable by a spaceship ( 1 km/s, being very optimist) it takes 300 000 x 4.4 = 1 350 000 years: 2 700 000 years for the round trip . Have a nice trip ( lot of miles for a frequent flyer, though! ).
    2- True
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  20. Claud

    Dead Andrea, you often say that alternative power sources are mainly funded by the taxpayers and their actual cost is then much higher than fossil fuels. Don’t you think that if to these latter would be attributed a reasonable share of the public costs sustained for cancer, asthma and other deseases, besides those for limiting CO2 release (without considering the damages to the environment in case of accidents and so on) this argument could be radically reconsidered?
    My best wishes to your work (ergo)….

    Claudio Rossi

  21. Andrea Rossi

    Claud:
    You made a point worth to be considered, with rigorous mathematical calculations and consolidated medical statistics that calculate the probability of an increase of diseases surely related to the pollution from fossil fuels. Let me say, though, that there are BACTs ( best available control technologies) that can resolve many problems. I wrote a book about this in 1976 ( L’Incenerimento dei rifiuti e la depurazione dei fumi- Ed Tecniche Nuove, Milano 1976) and if at those times it was already true, today it is much better. My personal opinion is that, for example, many coal plants could be saved if properly retrofitted. About CO2, Exxon, among others, is making a very advanced and promising R&D.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  22. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    1) In experimental testing, what is the maximum percentage of electrical output (compared to the total energy output) that you have measured? Has this remained at 20% or increased?

    2) Extrapolating from the experimental results obtained so far, how long do you think a Quark can continue producing a near constant level of output before a significant drop off?

    3) From current experimental data — non-final — what is the power density in terms of volume of the Quark considering all necessary components for electrical production? For example, 10 watts per cubic centimeter? 100?

    4) Do you think on an automated production line that Quark units will be simple and rapid to manufacture? In my mind, I envision them being produced in massive bulk. Although I do not condone cigarette smoking, I could imagine them rolling off an assembly line in a similar manner.

    5) What is the total weight of a Quark?

    6) Have you ever detected charged particles being emitted by a Quark that could confirm the theory in the Cook-Rossi paper?

    7) An Earth sized exo-planet (estimated at 1.4 Earth Mass) has been found in the habitable zone of Proxima Centauri, the closest star except our own sun. The Quark technology could provide an ideal power source for a probe sent to investigate and potentially provide direct propulsion — emission of light to push a solar sail or charged particles for thrust. Any thoughts?

    8) When the prototype of the Quark is revealed, will an explanation of the theorized working mechanisms also be shared?

    Thank you.

    Hank

  23. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    1- Must make a distinction between Carnot cycle and direct production: respectively 35% and 20%
    2- I do not know
    3- I prefer to reserve this information so far.
    4- Yes
    5- Not yet defined
    6- (Thank you, you reminded me to write urgently to Prof Cook). I can’t answer yet.
    7- That exo-planet is millions lightyears distant from the Earth and, unfortunately, the relativistic ” warmholes” are science fiction trivialities. This means that a spaceship at the speed of light would need millions of years to reach the exoplanet. Challenge: calculate how many years at sustainable speed. Just forget it.
    8- Could be.

  24. Jeff

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Can power be considered potential energy?
    My son asked, I’m not able to answer.
    Thanks,
    Jeff

  25. Andrea Rossi

    Jeff:
    No, power is not energy, potential or actual as it might be. Power is a rating that indicates the maximum of energy that an apparatus can generate. For example, when you say that an engine has a power of 100 kW, this means that engine is rated to generate a maximum of 100 kWh/h of energy.

  30. Eugenio Mieli

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    considering the many variables we must consider (technical, legal, political) and consequently the difficulty in being precise in predictions, may you now make a schedule of upcoming major deadlines in the long road of E-Cat?

    I’m sure that on certain issues you will be forced to repeat yourself, but I think it is interesting to have an overall timing pattern that reflects your feelings today. Obviously without obligation . . .

    Thanks so much,

    Eugenio

  31. Andrea Rossi

    Eugenio Mieli:
    1- continue the manufacturing of the industrial plants: NOW
    2- complete the R&D of the QuarkX to sell the first unit: within 2016
    3- presentation of the QuarkX prototype: within 2016
    4- start massive production of the E-Cats in the USA and in Sweden: 2017- 2018
    Thank you for your attention,

  34. Gennady

    Dear Andrea,

    There has been a lot of questions about your industrial E-Cats. I would like to ask couple questions about domestic units. As you realize it is important to many of us. Especially since you mentioned that certification is complex and takes time.

    1. How many prototypes are you working with? Is there a code name for it (a la Quark X)
    2. Are all prototypes the same or there are variations?
    3. Do all prototypes produce both heat and electricity?
    4. What is the typical COP for a domestic unit you are working with?
    5. How far are you in the certification process? (10%, 30%, 60%, etc)?
    6. Do you think you will be able to complete certification process this year?

    Kind regards,

    Gennady

  35. Andrea Rossi

    Gennady:
    1- 3: n.1, n.2, n.3 ( a’ la James Bond’s Spectre)
    2- same
    3- heat and light + electricity
    4- confidential so far
    5- 60%
    6- I don’t think so
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  40. Augustus Cofer

    Mr Andrea Rossi:
    Why has been necessary a 1 year test for the 1 MW Ecat, considering that the Lugano test already had supplied the proof of concept?
    Augustus

  41. Andrea Rossi

    Augustus Cofer:
    These tests have been two completely different things. The Lugano test, funded by the Swedish Royal Academy of Science and by Elforsk, has been an independent scientific test, without any commercial involvement and the object of the test was a Hot Cat which worked with a surface temperature of 1573 K and over. The Hot Cat is not yet a commercial product. On the contrary, the 1 year test has been a commercial test, made along a protocol described in a commercial/industrial contract; the object of the 1 year test was a low temperature E-Cat rated 1 MW of power, not a Hot Cat rated 3 kW of power. Being a completely new and revolutionary product, a test of at least one year has been agreed upon by the parties that signed the related contract.

  46. Tom Conover

    Hello Andrea,

    The included website reference is a source for an unusual metal called tantalum, which may tolerate the high temperatures you need your materials to withstand.

    http://www.eaglealloys.com/tantalum/

    A portion of the web page reads as follows:

    Tantalum is a ductile metal. Tantalum has excellent corrosion resistance to most chemicals except hydrofluoric acid. Tantalum has a melting point exceeded only by tungsten & rhenium. The melting point of tantalum is approximately 3017 degrees Celsius. Tantalum’s main end uses are in capacitors, vacuum furnaces, chemical process equipment, nuclear reactors and aircraft parts.

    Eagle Alloys has a large inventory listed below. All custom sizes and finished parts can be produced quickly to the highest industry standards. Eagle Alloys can furnish bar, foil, sheet, plate, tubing and wire.

    Warm regards,

    Tom

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    The 1 year test with an industrial plant working with the LENR and the start of the manufacturing of industrial plants have been historical achievements, matured in the endless series of public and closed-doors tests you made in these years with enormous sacrifice. The silent majority has understood all this and trusts in your work.
    Good luck for these hard next months you have to pass through.

  57. Andrea Rossi

    Anonymous:
    No, I will never return to that field because to do well one thing you must dedicate all of yourself to that thing. I must stay focused on the E-Cat. I am glad to read that many plants have been made in the world after my patent of 1978 and that is all.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, I know that I am completely OT, but may I ask what is your diet?
    I mean, is it mostly vegetarian, or also do you use foods of animal origin (meat, eggs, milk, etc.)?
    I have been “struck” by a recent documentary in which they show what a completely vegetarian diet is healthy, especially for healing without drugs diseases and physical and mental deterioration resulting from the consumption of meat etc.
    I recommend everyone to watch this documentary http://www.fatsickandnearlydead.com/

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    I plan to replace my old gas water heater by a tankless electric version (9KWh). Do you think that one of the E-cat versions (when ready) could be compatible with this application?

    A low response time (few seconds) is required. The output water temperature and water flow would be compatible with a shower (~40°C and ~20l/mn)

  76. Dear Andrea,
    Processor industry and mass memory industry make use of failed chips and use the concept of bad sectors. For example, a processor factory may make 8-core chips. Six and seven core chips that the company sells may be originally 8-core chips, some cores of which were found nonfunctional in factory testing. Similarly, chips may be classified in testing according to how high clock frequency they tolerate, and sold accordingly as different “models”.
    Hard disks and flash memory chips may have an internal list of bad sectors. The list is initialised at factory and it may grow dynamically when the customer is using it and the device ages.

    You might want to use a bit similar strategies with the Quark. Depending on the circumstances and the exact product, not all cores need to be perfect, and some of them might be allowed to fail in customer premises, without the whole assembly (the whole E-cat device) becoming invalid. Only if too many cores have failed, then it is time to do servicing or return the device to the factory. Having enough spare cores might enable a rather large fraction of the cores to fail and the device may still perform according to specs from the user’s point of view. What it needs is software which is made to mark cores as bad when certain criteria are fulfilled.

    You are probably well aware of these things. But my main point is that you might want to look into how for example semiconductor industry handles such things. At least they have a long experience about it.

    The optimum is rarely the absolute maximum, not even when speaking of reliability. The optimum (in this case, business optimum) is usually somewhere inbetween. This is actually Akin’s law number 8, http://spacecraft.ssl.umd.edu/akins_laws.html .

    Based on what you lately are writing in this blog, it appears that you will produce only industrial plants, while the domestic E-Cat will be abandoned. Is it true?

    Lean Khensovan:
    No, no! The domestic E-Cat is much more complex, mainly in relation to the certification, but it is still a goal of us to be reached.

  82. Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Based on your recent comments about reliability and progress with the QuarkX, I wonder if this cell version using near sub-micron materials requires such a level of purity and material consistency that it is actually 2 generations past the Hot Cat? Would an intermediate cell size of 10 mm diameter or more and 10 cm or so in length be easier and faster to develop?

    You always take on the hard tasks. Best of luck with your research.

    Best Regards,

    Daniel G. Zavela

  83. Andrea Rossi

    Daniel G. Zavela:
    Thank you for your attention to the work of my Team. Yes, the QuarkX is not an easy thing, but it is worth the while. Its development, anyway, does not make an impedance for the classic E-Cat.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  84. Birgit

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    I loved the 2 years ager comment. It mirrors your nature of experimentalist.
    How is working the Quarkx today ?
    Cheers,

  88. Karl-Henrik Malmqvist

    Dear Andrea,
    You said that you have at least 3 QuarkX units working. Are the units performing identical or do they have individual differences in performance? When going into production you will get some variations (concentration, purity, particle size) in different batches from the chemical suppliers. Do you think it will take a lot of development time to adapt the installation and control system to handle these variations?
    Best Regards,
    Karl-Henrik, Sweden

  89. Andrea Rossi

    Karl-Henrik Malmqvist:
    1- Moreless identical
    2- Good point.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    My son is 2 years old and asked me how an airoplane can fly: how can I explain to a 2 years old this?
    Thanks if you can help me
    Tom

  97. Andrea Rossi

    Smithc390:
    ” Lot of birds inside” ( he,he,he…)
    Seriously, a two years old learns by direct experience, not by theoretical explications. When he is in the car, be careful nobody is around your car, then make him stretch out of the window his hand open, with the wind that hits the palm: make him have the palm inclined so that the wind pushes it upward and then you can say: ” Do you feel the force that raises your hand? Is the same that holds up the airoplane pushed forward by the propellers”.
    I’d do so.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  98. Sean

  106. Tom Conover

    Good morning Andrea!

    Sounds like a difficult day yesterday. I celebrate with you your victory over the control system on the QuarkX last night. Question if I may …

    Do you still test the control system for a single QuarkX module, or have you started to test with more than one module?

    Godspeed, kind sir!

    Tom

  107. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    Yesterday it was not the control system, like the last week. It was a problem of stability, not due to the control system. We are testing more than one module.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  108. Lindsey Harbour

    Mr Andrea Rossi,
    The problems with the quark you had today what were caused from ?

  109. Andrea Rossi

    Lindsey Harbour:
    Lack of stability, but we have resolved the problem.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  110. Sarah

    Dear Andrea
    Rating from 1 ( lowest) to 10, which is the rate you deem proper right now for the behavior of the QuarkX?

    I first became aware of Mr. Rossi and his E-CAT having watched a short video produced by Ruby Carat. The Sincerity was true and direct. I saw no guile in this man, only hope for the planet. Shortly after having seen that video I watched videos from several sources. Her interviews of Iraj Parchamazad and Melvin Miles gave me just that much more confidence in LENR. And then Zawodny’s 2 versions of an LENR sealed the deal with me. I continue to be impressed by the in road that Phyllis Young and the Standing Rock Sioux have made with Brillouin Energy. Congratulations to all for your staying power and commitment to its development.

  146. Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,

    In the future, once electrical feedback to a lithium battery is made safe (I feel it will someday), could you foresee developing a wireless 25-100W incandescent light bulbs using one QuarkX as the filament replacement?
    With its 0-50% light conversion of the QuarkX against the low efficiency of an incandescent bulb filament (5%), I would think, the luminescence equivalence could be easily met. The temperature of a 75W or 100W bulb filament is 2550 °C in comparison to the cool 1500 °C surface of the QuarkX.
    I would think it could be made variable with the control box and battery in its screw base using current multi-selection sockets.
    As an incentive, you could even offer 20 “Cool Cats” with a Domestic QuarkX System to reduce its overall home electric requirements.
    Warm regards,
    Brokeeper

  147. Andrea Rossi

    Brokeeper:
    Thank you for the suggestions.

  150. All:

    Something I would find helpful when discussing LENR with interested people would be the ability to supply a full list of credible replicators. I am familiar with the names Alexander Parkhomov and Songsheng Jiang. Are there other names of serious investigators that can be added to the list?

    The existence of multiple serious replicators – at risk of losing their scientific reputations if it were to turn out they were mistaken – is a strong argument supporting the proposition that LENR is truly a reality.

    Rodney.

  152. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    Do all the various phenomena that take place inside of the fuel mix of the Quark also take place in the fuel mix of previous reactor designs — if they were heated to the same temperatures with the same EM stimulation applied? This would seem to be the case if the same combination of nickel, lithium, and hydrogen were being utilized perhaps only with varying ratios.

    Thank you.

    Hank

  153. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    Substantially, yes.

    Every well managed engineering development program has a detailed program plan. This plan typically includes such things as engineering milestones, component delivery dates, scheduled design reviews, test plans, financial resources etc.. do you have such a plan for the 3 Customer plants now in development? If so, what is the planned completion date for final delivery to the customer? Of course, program schedules often slip due to unforeseen circumstances.

    Continued success in all your ventures,

    Mr Andrea Rossi,
    I am spending my holidays in Florida. Can you suggest me trips that are not known as traditional touristic attractions ? I already know that I must go to Orlando to visit the amusement parks and the NASA Center, Miami beach, the Everglades, Key West. What more ?
    Cheers,
    Sal

  169. Andrea Rossi

    Sal:
    St Augustin is not far from Orlando and is the most ancient city of the USA. It is extremely interesting and is worth at least an overnight for its historic importance. It is a couple of hours of driving north of Orlando. A tour to Sarasota, St Petersburg and Tampa Bay is extremely beautiful both turistically and culturally; Fort Mayers is very important to visit the laboratory of Edison.
    These are the three that come in mind to me right now, but you can check a good guide for the infinite interesting things you can find in this wonderful State.

    Andrea I suggest your readers Jane Mayer’s new book Dark Money: it explains how wealthy few convert sponsored Oligarky since the ’70s no less!
    Jane is one terrific investigative reporter: 800+5* reviews on Amazon books! I mention this because are so heavily involved in Our fossil energy industry; I fear they have a desire to own LENR technology to the citizens detriment at all cost!
    Again careful my dear friend Andrea!
    Your friend & long time follower Jim

  175. Andrea Rossi

    James Rovnak:
    I am delighted to notice your friendship and attention to our work, but:
    perhaps in this period you are watching too many Bond, James Bond movies. The matter of the fact is that all the energy sources must be integrated. Thank you for your book reference, but I suggest to read at the same time books of opposite opinion. We must take advice that so far the so called “alternative energies” are entirely funded by the taxpayer and that without fossil fuels the energy would have enormous costs, probably four folds the price it has now. We must not take too seriously the wannabelogy of technologies that can stand only if the taxpayer pays for their shortcomings, now perpetrated for 40 years and counting.
    About the so called Rossi Effect, I think that my duty is to develope it and work on it to make it as much diffused as possible, without losing time on conspiracy theories. Nobody can stop a technology that works and nobody needs to stop a cart with square wheels.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  176. orsobubu

    As a communist, I completely agree with Bernie Koppenhofer, Rossi would be an idealist handing over the IP for the good of humanity. His historical role is rather to fight in the market to become himself a major international corporation. In a fairly long time, when the bodies of the orsobubu, of Andrea Rossi and Bernie Koppenhofer will already be transformed into nickel and lithium, the inevitable contradictions of the capitalist system will lead to its overcoming, driven also by unpredictable LENR applications; this ensuring that humanity will benefit in a peaceful and socially shared way of the potential of these technologies.

    I also want to add an OT monstrosity, that I do not agree that some of the profits be handed out to the charity, being these charitable activities a masking for the contradictions generated by capitalism, which ultimately let things exactly as they are and indeed in a sense serve as a justification. Better than to start programs like those of new Silicon Valley visionary industrialists, who are dedicated to developing space engines, missions to Mars and so on. If I were a big capitalist, in fact I would invest in the possibility of transferring the capitalist system in outer space, to guarantee the continuity of its expansion and prevent imperialist wars. I bet they will not succeed, however in their place I would do exactly the same thing. If one chooses to go the charitable way, then I also would fund research in LENR-powered nuclear decontamination and desert irrigation, buy big chunks of pristine rain forests, hire a photographer to shoot a session for the sake of my supporters… Just dreaming… :)

    Caro Andrea Rossi
    What is going on with Zikha in Miami ? Do you fear it ?
    Norma

  179. Andrea Rossi

    Norma:
    Miami and Miami Beach are wonderful towns with an extremely efficient control of the territory, thanks to a very highly efficient police and to a people extremely reactive in cases like this. This grants safety under all the points of view, included the one related to the healthcare. Already have been sprayed by airoplanes and with ground systems the antidotes and nobody has to fear anything, I think.
    The problem was related to a very restricted area, where pregnant women were suggested to avoid to go.

    Dr. Rossi: Do you agree or disagree?

    For the last five years there have been Rossi critics who argue he should simply hand over his IP to “Independent” testers, the government, NASA (the government), a “large company” who can really develop the science, etc. etc……….and he should do this: For the good of humanity.

    It is my opinion Rossi is proceeding in the only way he can to insure the most good comes from his IP, for all of humanity, by using a true free market.

    To do that, he must not lose control of his IP. If he loses control there are just too many sharks out there ready and able to exploit this game changing new fire. He has already run into two sharks masquerading as honest brokers. There are probably more we have not heard of, and even more waiting in the wings.

    Make no mistake Rossi is at the very beginning of this fight. He cannot underestimate the power and influence money interests can apply with the goal of gaining control of this new fire. Politically, they can and do write legislation that is passed by the US Congress. We have already seen scientists playing the stooges for these powerful interest groups; that will intensify. We have only seen the tip of the ice berg of the legal battles that will purposely delay implementation, and fight for control of LENR.

    What is at stake? For most of us tucked away in suburbia, it will mean, in ten years paying $2,000 a month for all our power needs rather than paying a $100 bucks a month, if it is not exploited. For that poor family in India and Africa it could mean life and death, clean air, clean water and food.

    To those who think Rossi should turn over his IP to “humanity”. Prove to me this IP will not end up being exploited by multi international corporations, billionaires, and Wall Street money interests, who will charge us twenty times more than it costs. Prove to me a family in India or Africa will benefit from this new fire at a fair free market price.

    I prefer Rossi to keep control of his IP and let an actual free market decide the price all humanity pays for LENR power in ten years?

  193. Andrea Rossi

    Bernie Koppenhofer:
    In a nutshell: have anybody seen someone invest seriously in a technology without IP ?

    Dear Andrea,

    With the 28 October 2011 1MW ECat reactor demo, no one has been able to show this test result was wrong.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lOYlFyotXk

    For 5 hours the plant produced 1/2 MWh/hr of thermal energy with no electrical input to the reactor heaters, the only energy consumed was for the pumps and control systems. During the SSM mode, the COP was infinite as there was no energy input to the reactors.

    Of course the thermal load in this test was very constant. Additionally no one, even you, were at the controls to continually adjust the reactor control system.

    So here we have a clear example that back on October 2011, the ECat reactor control system was able to automatically maintain SSM mode for 5 hours without any human intervention.

    So why it is so surprising that in 2015, a 1MW ECat plant, several generations beyond the Oct 2011 plant was able to run 24/7/350 without human intervention, except for breakdown assistance?

  200. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    Have you considered placing a Quark into a Tubesat and having it launched into low earth orbit?

    http://www.interorbital.com/Downloads/TubeSat%20Sales%20Brochure%20Publish%202.0.pdf

    The Tubesat kit costs eight thousand dollars but includes launch.

    You could then solidify the E-Cat as the FIRST LENR technology in orbit!

  201. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    Probably some foe will sugget me to go together with the QuarkX…

  202. I thought this looked like potentially – if it is true – stunning news:

    “Scientists may have found ‘fifth force of nature'”

    “After the evidence went against matter particles and dark photons they proposed a new theory that indicates a fifth fundamental force. Feng added that there could be a separate dark sector with its own matter and forces. “It’s possible that these two sectors talk to each other and interact with one another through somewhat veiled but fundamental interactions,” he said.”

    He seems to be saying that dark matter may be in a parallel universe?

    I found the news article here:

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    What do you think of the protophobic particle found by the Hungarian scientists ? Is it a Fermion ar a gauge boson bearing a “Fifth Force” ?
    Cheers,
    Adrian

  205. Andrea Rossi

    Adrian:
    I am very confused, and probably mentally limited: I do not know any ” protophobic ” elementary particle, Boson or Fermion as it might be, let alone a Boson bearing a Fifth Force.
    Maybe Physicists more informed than I am can answer you.

  211. Mark Saker

    Dear Andrea,

    Firstly, I know you cannot answer to what the customer was producing from the steam produced by the 1MW e-cat.

    There seems to be some discussions as to whether there is a process which would allow you to use 1MW of heat in such a small space, with only a small amount of raw material (not much coming in or going out) and the small amount of water you can dump through the drains or hot air you can extract through the vents.

    I’m hoping there is another product in the world that could use a similar amount of heat with the same set of conditions. Could you maybe describe how that would be used in the same situation. This way you do not give out any protected information but you provide an example that proves it can be done. Any calculations would make it even better

    Thankyou very much and hurry up I want my e-cat!! :)

  212. Andrea Rossi

    Mark Saker:
    There are a lot of possible solutions to your question and any engineer expert of the field can give you a list of them. Some already have been exemplified in this blog from the Readers, I do not know what is happening in other blogs because I do not read them. The specific case you are dealing with is impossible to describe without giving information of the details of the plant and the factory. Every speculation about the matter without such information is a nonsense. This is an issue that will be discussed in Court and I cannot discuss in the blogs issues that have to be discussed in Court, in pursue of precise directions of my Attorney.
    Your pre-order is in good standing, but I must repeat that , while for the industrial plant we already are executive, for the domestic many issues have still to be assessed.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Many Thanks for your good wishes to my daughter.

    One day In the future I will take her to visit one of your plants or a demonstration quark somewhere and tell her an amazing story about these days. I wonder what other wonders she will see in her life.

  219. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Interesting about distributed heating, I wish you well with the project. Is it necessary for your “pioneer” customers to have experience with E-Cat plants before you enter the massive production stage?

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

  220. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland,
    I’d say that are two different things, not necessarily bound, but, of course, experience with the “pioneers” will help.
    Warm Regards,

    You already have given communication that the industrial plants manufacturing has been started, and this is for sure a milestone in the history of technology.
    When do you think that also the massive production will be announced?
    Thank you,
    Neil

  224. Andrea Rossi

    Neil:
    It is very difficult to answer, many factors do not depend on me, while the selected industrial manufacturing as it is on course depends on me. I can assure you that I am doing all I can to make it possible in the shortes possible timespan.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  225. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    A few weeks ago you said you thought the first commercial application for the industrial E-Cat plants would be in the field of centralized or district heating. Has this changed, or do you still feel this way, and if so are you already working in this area?

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

  226. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Yes, the distributed heat will be the start. I will give the details when it will be in operation.
    Warm Regards,

  227. Dear Andrea,
    Related to the Feng et al. arxiv paper linked to by Magnus and also in general. I like the idea that some kind of chain reaction would be underlying LENR. Uranium is silent until one makes a large enough piece so that chain reaction occurs. Then it heats up strongly, emits radiation and can even explode fiercely if one makes the effort to put the large piece together very quickly. Also LENR is usually unobservable in ordinary matter, but seemingly can be ignited with the right conditions. A chain reaction would make it understandable why.
    My point is this: From the observed time constant of LENR, can one make any conclusions concerning the particle that could be the mediator of the presumed underlying chain reaction? In nuclear fission the mediating particles are fission neutrons (i.e., 2-3 MeV neutrons). They are fast, so the chain reaction can also happen fast, which makes it possible to even have a nuclear explosion. In LENR, it seems that the time constant is at least somewhat longer, but based on it, could one draw some conclusions concerning which elementary particles or other physical mediators could act as mediators, in case of LENR? The mediators could be e.g. protons, X-rays, some wave modes, or perhaps new physics (particle X) in the Feng et al. arxiv paper. Considering the observed time constant, one might be able to rule out some of these as potential mediators in LENR.
    Effectively, my question is: what is the observed timescale (one e-folding time of the power output) of LENR when the phenomenon grows fast for some reason (either on purpose or by accident). Is it several seconds, one second, 0.1 seconds, 0.01 seconds or can it be even shorter?
    regards, /pekka

  228. Andrea Rossi

    Pekka Janhunen:
    I studied yesterday the paper sent us from Magnus: very interesting, but I never measured the energies involved. I do not think it can be reconciled with the so called Rossi effect.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  229. Stephen

    Dear Andrea Rossi.

    It’ saddens me sometimes the endless repeated negative discussions in some forums. Especially that people new to LENR type technology are swamped with that discussion instead of being able to see the really interesting topics. I hope that some of them find there way here like I did in better times a little over a year and a half ago and fell the inspiration, belief and hope for the future that I continue to have. But in this little storm from a few (maybe half a dozen or so?) loud noisy people there are is some amazing insights and clarities coming from real engineers like Engineer48 and others that clarify and correct each negative point that comes up that just make me more and more inspired about how this may all possibly work and it’s applications. I’ve seen arguments about cooking people in containers that moved to cooking people in warehouses when that argument didn’t work then flow meters discussed, pipe sizes steam temperatures and wetness vents. Each point coming up round and round and each point being proved wrong with a little investigation by smart real engineers. This only reinforces my sence that the E-Cat is something very special and right. I’m very sorry though that you have to experience this difficulty about something so beautiful. Especially when you can’t answer express your point of view due to the court case. But I think the beauty of what you have out shines all these shadows and in time we will all see it and it will be worth waiting for.

    You’ve been kind enough to share with us your progress and work all these years and bring some light of hope to us.. So here is a bit of light from mine:

    Something very special happened in my life a little over a week ago. After a very long wait for me and my wife we had our first baby daughter. I’m about 52 so it’s been a very long time for us and so she is very special and beautiful to us and we consider her a wonderful gift from God to us. I think when you hold such a precious gift in your hands whether it’s your child or even a very special product you’ve made from an inspired idea and hard work nothing other people say matters much you just know it’s special and her, his or it time will come in their own way and own time. But I think it’s going to be amazing.

    Kind Regards
    Stephen

    Thank you for your insight, I agree. Do not worry: the puppets are paid to raise mud and this is the best evidence that our foe needs mud because has not serious arguments. Let them talk, it’s just tongue displaced air. Paper tigers.

  231. Magnus

    Dear Andrea,

    A new paper fitting the X particle from Be8 emission (now at 6.8 sigma) to a fifth fundamental force with a new U(1) gauge boson coupled to quarks in a way that renders it protophobic.
    See, http://arxiv.org/abs/1608.03591

    Do you think this is related to the Rossi Effect?

    Do you think the Rossi Effect can be a laser-like amplification of X induced p+Li7 fusion ending in p+Li7+X->Be8->2He4+2X?

    Bring on E-Cat Xaser.

    Best regards,

  236. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    I am not sure if you want to talk about personal things, if not than please bin this.
    The oath that Jacky asked you for was very unusual and I believe it is much appreciated that you did respond on it positively. It gave me much more faith that what you are saying can be trusted. Thank you for that.
    I just wonder how you felt when Jacky asked you to do this oath. What were your emotions?
    Kind regards, Gerard

  237. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    As I received that request I was offended, but rethinking about that I decided to accept. Our foe is using the tactic to make his puppets raise mud saying stupidities of which the puppets are not liable because they, substantially, are nobody and are not officially bound to him; nor the foe is reliable, because he is saying nothing directly, he is always shielded by the puppets. This way they can disseminate slanders and repeat their lies like a commercial spot on television: repeat a message to sell a product, and people will buy it even if it is not good. I cannot disclose information that have to be disclosed in Court, and they are taking advantage of this, creating confusion. At the end I decided to comply. I wrote the truth, so at the end my emotions about this are strong, but positive.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Interesting comments on e-catworld about the oath; I understand them absolutely not as accusations toward jackie and her husband, my friend georgehants, which had good reasons to ask Rossi, but as introspections inquiring the doubts innerly alternating inside most of us during this extraordinary human saga:

    Billy Jackson:

    I am actually somewhat offended by this. I call not his character into question but ours.
    That we required this oath to sooth our own doubts and fears belittles the man, his achievements. It shows that despite his sacrifice and dedication to the fight we have watched and at times been participants in. WE still stood before him and told him we did not believe him with out this dedication of truth…
    For the first time on this board.. i can honestly say i am ashamed.
    (i am not offended by the faith aspect but that we required such an oath to begin with)

    Michael W Wolf:

    It is IH and the skeptics that cast the cloud of doubt. Some of the accusations are even plausible. I am guilty of the accusations shaking my faith in Rossi. I am not ashamed at all, it is exactly what I expected of Rossi. Words mean things. Granted, I would never ask him to do that, but now that he has done it, it can only help him get more support against the possible libel that has been launched at him.

    On another forum, absolutely brilliant poster Nevanlinna, author of an impressive number of first findings on the subject, answers to usual temptatives to discredit Andrea:

    Get a grip, we begin to look more closely at the Bible in certain situations. I am attached to the character, I would not want he’s starting to feel tired.
