  1. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Regarding the previous question on Fusion vs Fission on JONP, it appears from your referenced paper that you are suggesting that a “long-range” transfer of effectively one neutron from one type of atom to another is occurring. It would be of the form (A(pA,nA) + B(pB,nB) -> A(pA, nA-1) + B(pB, nB+1)).

    Questions:

    to be effective, would the all or some of the following be required:

    1. The combined mass of the original atoms be less than the combined mass of the resulting atoms? (i.e., excess energy is produced)
    2. The resulting atoms must be stable?
    3. No proton shifting is allowed (no new elements removed or produced)

    I am considering developing a computer program to see what combinations are effective and the amount of net energy produced.

  2. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    Thank you for your insight, but the mechanism is completely different. As probably you read on my researchgate paper, we are thinking to nothing like these hypothesis.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  3. Bill Hayes

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    I want to ask several questions about retrieving an electrical current from the plasma.

    If I understand correctly, the electrical energy is being obtained from an electromagnetic field in or around the plasma. My questions are:

    1.Could something like an “antenna” (or an appropriately configured physical structure inside the reactor) be used to convert the energy of the electromagnetic field into an electric current?

    2.Would the recovered electrical current be AC?

    3.Would the physical dimensions of the antenna be most efficient at producing an electrical current if it were physically one quarter wavelength of the energy in the electromagnetic field?

    Thank you for your dedication and hard work in creating a revolution in energy production.

    Best Regards,
    Bill Hayes

  4. Andrea Rossi

    Bill Hayes:
    1- I cannot answer in positive or in negative
    2- It can be either AC or DC
    3- same as in 1

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Watching carefully
    http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    I discovered that the Teslameter indicated clearly an electromagnetic field generated by the plasma, which means that electric current was generated too. Is this observation that started your R&D on the direct production of electricity from the plasma?
    Thank you if you can answer,

  14. Jamal

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Is it important the orientation of the Ecat SK? For example: if you turn it upside-down, can it work as well?
    Cheers
    Jamal

  15. Andrea Rossi

    Jamal:
    The orientation does not affect the operation of the Ecat. Yes, you can turn upside down the reactor with no effects deriving from this fact.

    Dr. Rossi,
    With respect to the possibility of achieving 90% electricity, 10% heat: I find that possibility so very exciting; I wish you every possible success.

    If successful, it would be an amazing, break-through product, useful in just about every industry and in every corner of the world. On top of that, it would be an unparalleled engineering achievement and, I have to believe, a seminal scientific advancement.

    Best wishes! (And Wow!)

    WaltC

  21. Andrea Rossi

    WaltC:
    It will be very hard and difficult. Part of the electric energy would supply the energy necessary to the Ecat to work. The implications are enormous. #We do not have it yet, but we are working very hard on it. Some of us is getting no sleep. Theoretically, it is not impossible, as we discovered, or, at least, we think we discovered.

    I asked you a question among the most important.
    “If the reaction is a” interaction “of plasma electrons, rather than a nuclear reaction, you should find far fewer obstacles in the production permit and for the home system, given that plasma generators have long been sold for metal processing.”
    You did not answer by answering more serious questions.
    I live on earth. This is very important to me E-Cat, 10 kW for the home.

  33. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,

    Just a few questions:
    1. Have you already scaled-up the production of heat producing E-cats or are you still assessing/improving the running plants performances?
    2. Does the Electric E-cat require considerable changes of the reactor itself, or is it more the control system that needs to change?
    And a remark:
    Maybe that this invention can also help you to generate electricity in an efficient way: http://news.rice.edu/2019/07/12/rice-device-channels-heat-into-light/
    (I assume this invention can also be used to bring the UV level EM radiation of the E-cat to the most efficient frequencies suitable for PV).
    Kind regards, Gerard

  34. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    1. still assessing – improving the working ones
    2. this is a very complex issue
    3. thank you for the link
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  35. Daniel G. Zavela

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    You stated many times that the E-Cat requires an external power source for safety reasons.
    Would the same safety concerns occur with the “Electric E-Cat” you are now doing R&D on?

    I wonder what inspired you to consider investing so much time, energy and money toward the direct production of electricity from the E-Cat?

    Best of Luck on your R&D. Many you acquire the all the resources you need to successfully complete your task.

    Best Regards,

    Daniel G. Zavela

  36. Andrea Rossi

    Daniel G.Zavela:
    In the Ecat SK plasma we have a situation that has a strong potential to eskew the issues we had with the Ecatbefore.
    The importance is enormous with the efficiency we expect, that before did not exist.
    Thank you for your kind wishes,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  37. Pat

    Are you still also working to improve the heat production by the Ecat, besides the R&D on the direct plasma electricity production?

    Hello A. Rossi
    You wrote that there is no fusion or fission in the Rossi effect. This means that there is no phenomenon of absorption or expulsion of particles by the nucleus of the atom.

    Is it possible that there is a mysterious creation of proton or neutron in the atomic nucleus or neutron / proton transmutations?

    A thousand excuses if my question is silly because I am not an atomic physicist
    All my respect and wishes for success

    I return to the comment of Neri Accornero: can you give a hint, not superficial, but not too difficult, about what can happen if your effect is not fusion, not fission, not chemical reaction?

  47. Andrea Rossi

    Dewey:
    Please go to
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    All the references cited here are the same reported in the above mentioned paper.
    In [13] a fundamental connection between Aharonov-Bohm equations and an electron model is proposed, starting from a geometric interpretation of the electron wave-function complex phase [6,8,1].
    This approach suggests the possibility of efficiently creating electron condensates exploiting the Aharonov-Bohm effect, a phenomenon that shows the dependence of electron wave-function phase from electromagnetic potentials [9].

  58. Dear Andrea Recently you said that the reaction in the ECAT is not a nuclear fusion, your article on researchgate, more and more read, is not within my reach and I certainly do not ask you for a simplified explanation but I take a reflection that I showed you some time ago. If the reaction is a plasmatic electrons “interaction” and not a nuclear reaction you should find much less obstacles in the authorization for the production also for the home system, given that Plasma generators have long been sold for metal processing. And at this point I ask you if the electrolytic experiments of Fleischmann and Pons and the others who followed them, are also special electronic reactions rather than cold fusion? And consequently does cold fusion exist?
    As always congratulations and full speed ahead!
    Neri

  59. Andrea Rossi

    Neri Accornero:
    The reactions are not fusion reactions, but complex particle interactions: I agree upon the fact that my paper is complex, but the matter is complex. You are Physician Prof, it is like to ask you in few and simple words how a heart transpland can be done. The answer unavoidably would be so much superficial to be a nonsense. But I can guarantee that in my effect there are no fusions, nor fissions. Now we are very advanced with the theoretical bases, even if much remains to be studied.
    About the F&P electrolisis, I am not able to answer, I can only say that I tried to replicate their open-source technology without being able to obtain an energetic gain.

    Dear Andrea,
    When would you lit the cigar for the Electrical Ecat:
    1. If the electrical output exceeds the electrical input
    2. If the electrical output exceeds 25% of the total output
    3. If the electrical output exceeds 50% of the total output
    4. Some other goals
    I hope you will enjoy this victory soon.
    Good luck to you and your team.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  65. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    The answer 1 should give COP infinite. Obviously two cigars are better than 1…and counting.
    You have no idea how badly we are working on it. Theoretically we should get it, but so far experimentally we had only hints of it.

    Did understand well that when you make the spectrometry of all the plasma we saw in
    http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    you obtain a Maxwellian spectrum of the black body and the calculation of the energy gives the same result because the temperature is lower, but the surface is much bigger ?

  67. Andrea Rossi

    M.B.:
    Exactly. Both are close to the calorimetris system, as explained in

    Heinz Hause:
    We are at a very advanced level. We already are able to supply thermal energy, albeit for now in limited areas where we are makinging the technology fit for a massive diffusion.
    We are making strong progress for the combined production of heat and electricity directly from the plasma. Our progress is becoming exponential due to the mass of information that we are getting from our work. I understand the anxiety, but consider that our competitors of Hot Fusion with unlimited funds, in the order of tenths of billions, have obtained nothing in seventy years, while in 10 years and without public funding we made enormous progress. I hope to be ready with the direct production of electricity within this year, albeit this is a hope, not a promise. We are working very hard and, again, without external funding.

    Heinz Sause

  83. WaltC

    Dr Rossi,
    I apologize, but most of the discussion about Fusion vs. “something else” ended up going over my head.

    If someone listed some notable Nuclear Reactions:
    – Elastic Scattering
    – Inelastic Scattering
    – Capture Reactions
    – Spallation
    – Induced Gamma Emission
    – Alpha decay
    – Fission Reactions
    – Fusion Reactions (Wikipedia: Two light nuclei join to form a heavier one, with additional particles (usually protons or neutrons) emitted subsequently.)

    1) Are you saying that the Nuclear Reactions going on within the E-Cat are not one of the types listed?
    2) Or broader, are you saying that the Nuclear Reactions going on within the E-Cat are not any currently recognized Nuclear Reaction Type?
    3) If they are an existing NR type, which one(s)?
    4) If you believe the E-Cat-Reactions are new, do you currently have succinct labels & descriptors for them?

    Before you point me (once again) in the direction of the “long_range_particle_interactions paper” (I’ve read and re-read it many times– especially whenever you assign it to me), I’m hoping that high level labels/descriptors might help me to better see the forest for the trees.

    thanks, WaltC

  87. Enquirer

    Dr Rossi
    What do you respond to them who say the graph of the video
    http://Www.ecatskdemo.com
    Is not a Maxwellian spectrum and therefore you cannot apply the Wien equation ?

  88. Andrea Rossi

    Enquirer:
    As I explained many times, the spectrometer was focused on the very small surface where we have the highest temperature. Consequently the S in the Boltzmann equation was very limited. If we widen the window and get the whole spectrum, we obtain a Maxwellian. In this case we have a wider surface and the results when we apply the Wien and the Boltzmann equation are very similar, as well as they both are very similar to the corresponding colorimetric measurement, because the S in the Maxwellian spectrum is much wider.
    All this is well explained in my paper on Researchgate, that, probably, who made these objections either did not read, or did not understand.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Regarding the question of fusion or fission, where you suggested an alternative, and after reading your paper,
    1. would it be correct to describe the process as one of “isotope transfer”?
    2. Would a starting point of such an “isotope transfer” be looking at all possible transfers that yield a positive or surplus energy output?

  102. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N.Karels:
    The work I made with Norman Cook and published on Arxiv and now also on Researchgate was based on these hypothesis, the evolution is in my last paper on Researchgate.

    Just a link I think is worth to post.

    I would love to see a article from you “LENR for dummies” as if I google LENR I see so much rubbish about mentioning cold fusion

    I hope you succeed, and become known as Edison 2.0

    Kind regards Arjen

  111. Dear Andrea,
    By the way, I like your call for Epoche call, that you make every now and then. Epoche should be exercised also, and in particular, regarding the question that we are asking nature. Forget if the question is new or old, but just think if the question is meaningful and well-posed. Nature is perfect and non-mysterious, just our understanding of it is murky. Our questions are manmade and therefore must be continuously criticised.
    regards, /pekka

  112. Andrea Rossi

    Pekka Janhunen:
    Yes.
    Read Edmund Husserl “Ideas For a Pure Phenomenology and for a Phenomenological Phylosophy”.
    Probably you speak German, better read it in German language. The translation in English is not perfect, in Italian makes it much more difficult than it already is for itself. But it is a gold mine for the brain.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  113. Dear Andrea,
    Well, your plasma must be tenuous, long distance between particles, because otherwise its pressure would be much higher than atmospheric and it would explode. In such plasma, electrons are well approximated by just classical point particles.

    The magic of plasma, if it has some, lies in its collective interactions, that is the feedback between the charged particles and the electric and magnetic fields that they generate and in which they move. Plasma, especially when it has a magnetic field, has a much richer set of wavemodes than ordinary gas, which only has sound waves and so-called entropy wave.

    The nature of the electron depends on the distance from which one is looking at it. Applies to other objects, too: for example if I look at you from an airplane at 10 km distance, you look like a mass point. Whereas if some insects crawls on your skin, he sees a thicker or thinner forest of body hair.

    But why wouldn’t you just make electricity using piece of water-cooled photovoltaic panel trimmed to the wavelengths that the plasma is emitting, or if that is not practical, then transform the wavelengths first to suitable range using fluorescent glass similar to that found in fluorescent lamps.

    Hello A. Rossi

    You wrote that physics has not yet understood the electron.

    Can you tell us, we ignorant of physics, what are the things that are not understood by physics?

    I’m sorry if my question is silly.
    Always a great support to the entire research team

    Raffaele Bongo:
    For example, the real nature of electron. By the way: Einstein wrote: ” to understand electron means to understand Physics “.

  128. Andrea Rossi

    MM:
    Yes, I know that paper: if you go to the core of it, you discover that along the philosophy of this paper, the reality of a mountain is not the mountain itself, but its inclination and the related integral. They missed 100% the essence of the electron.
    Perhaps, to respect the “symmetry”, this reference could balance:

    Also Afro-Americans are totally absent from the R&D related to LENR. How do you explain ?

  130. Andrea Rossi

    Victor:
    We have Afro Americans in our Team and they work excellently. I ignore if it is true what you say, because in the mountains of publications made about LENR it is not, obviously, specified the race. It would be illegal, besides stupid.
    Warm Regards,

  131. Dear Andrea,
    Joseph Fine linked a paper on tresinos, also a Compton scale proposition, but with two electrons orbiting a proton, not one. The two electrons can have opposite spins, which reduces the system’s magnetic energy, I would suppose… and the entity has -1 charge so acts like H- ion. Did you look at the tresino concept? I didn’t hear about it earlier.

    Dear Andrea,

    You recently said that you are optimistic about the outcome of the tests of the electric Ecat. Now, we know that you are an optimistic guy, but goes your optimism beyond your hope that it might work? Are there reasons to believe it’s going to work, already?
    Great success to you and your team.

    I noticed that in the field of LENR women are totally absent: there are not publications of females. How do you explain?

  141. Andrea Rossi

    Emilia:
    Well, as a matter of fact it is not true in absolute, for example Dr Evelyn Foschi, a physicist from the University of Bologna, has coauthored publications about LENR, but in general you are right, the presence of women is low. I am not able to answer why, I do not see any reason for this fact.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  142. Michel

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    Nice to see you clarify the situation on cold fusion and LENR.
    Obviously, the fusion of nuclei can only work at very high energies, as occurs into stars or accelerators, with neutrons production as unavoidable consequence. The alchemists of the Middle Ages have all failed to turn metals into gold because they do not have the knowledge of atomic structure and involved energies.

    You do not measure any neutrons from the E-cat, so it can not be a fusion reaction, you’re absolutely right. On the other hand, you get isotopic shifts (Nickel if i remember well), which means in one way or another a neutrons transfer, and that at a relatively low temperature: do you agree?

    Regards,

    Michel

  143. Andrea Rossi

    Michel:
    Your comment is intelligent, albeit I must in part disagree with you: I think that, speaking of Physics, we are still in a Middle Age and, as a consequence of this fact, our alchemists have made much better than turning vile iron into gold: look at the guys that have sold toilet paper, with written clowneries like “electron capture”, for millions, with “auditors” granting them billion dollars value of their shares value and using pop clowns like “guide fishes” to cheat on their investors: they turned toilet paper into gold !
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
    P.S. We are still in the Middle Age of Physics, because the Standard Model did not understand what is an electron, while Albert Einstein said ” we will understand Physics when we will understand electrons”.

  144. Joseph Fine

    Steven N. Karels,

    In both Fusion and Fission the reaction products will have a different atomic number, either greater than before (Fusion) or less than before (Fission). If the Atomic Number remains the same, one isotope of an element might be transformed into an isotope of the same element and the Atomic Number remains the same.

    Here is an example of the change in Total Binding Energies between Fe-56 and Fe-58.

    https://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=What+are+the+binding+energies+of+Fe-56+and+Fe-58%3F&assumption=%7B%22DPClash%22,+%22IsotopeP%22,+%22binding+energies%22%7D+-%3E+%7B%22TotalBindingEnergy%22%7D

    Then, there may also be Tresino reactions which have been theorized, but not yet confirmed.

    Dear Andrea,

    I have difficulty with your limited answer and I suspect others might also have questions and/or are experiencing confusion.

    I understand there are two primary ways of deriving energy from the nucleus – fission and fusion. I suspect you are concerned with protecting your confidential business secrets and that is fine and understandable.

    But the implication that I would draw from your comment is that the reaction is fission which cannot be the correct answer because of the low atomic number of the ingredients.

    Confused,

    Steve

    He was a great man and a great Professor. His students in the USA and in Japan loved him and they are lucky, because to have a master like him is a fortune.
    He will pass to the History of Physics for his model of the atom’s nucleus, that has inspired and will inspire generations of scientists.

    has been bought from you paying persons to click! Surely they do not know, or pretend not to know, that it is impossible, because the statistics on Researchgate are made only by registered scientists and researchers that put their face, because when they click the algorithm of Researchgate checks the authorship and the same person is not counted more than once. But Rossi is Rossi, and with Rossi also the impossible can be possible, so, please, confess: how much did you pay to obtain in less than 5 months 26800 full readings, 1737 recommendations, 572.5 index of research interest and counting ? How much costed to you to cherry-pick 26800 persons in hundreds of universities and labs all around the world? And how much money to each of them had you to give to force them a recommendation?

    Watching http://www.ecatskdemo.com I noticed the neutron detectors: have you ever detected neutrons emitted from the Ecat SK?
    Thanks if you can answer,
    Noemi

  201. Andrea Rossi

    Noemi Session:
    We never detected ionizing radiations, nor neutrons.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    The Zitterbewegung effect that is the core of the theoretical work in your paper on Researchgate consists in the vibrations made at the speed of light by electrons that move much slower, like a tennis ball that moves toward you slowly, but vibrates at a much higher speed, correct?

  203. Andrea Rossi

    Roby:
    That’s why I can’t get it !!! It is a false slow !!! ( Nice model, though ).

    Dear Andrea:
    I read many times
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    and watched in parallel
    http://www.ecatskdemo.com
    and the more times I read and watch, the more I understand the genial background and synergy of those two publications. I’m not surprised that your paper is the most read nuclear physics publication of the world.
    Godspeed,

    How many probabilities you think are there that your quest for electricity can be obtained by the ecat enough to make it work with a surplus?

  213. Andrea Rossi

    Jimmy Dewis:
    51%

    Karl Poehlmann:
    Thank you for the suggestion,
    Warm Regards,

  216. Viktor Shipachev

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    You do not need infinite COP for a commercial success, 50-60 COP is enough.
    Kind Regards,

  217. Andrea Rossi

    Viktor Shipachev:
    You are right.

  218. Raffaele Bongo

    Hello A. Rossi

    The thermal E-Cat has no moving mechanical parts.
    Is it the same think for the electric Leonardo E-Cat?
    All my wishes for the success of the E-Cat Leonardo R & D
    Best regards and good tennis for Sunday
    Raffaele

  219. Andrea Rossi

    Raffaele Bongo:
    Thank you for the success wishes for the Ecat SK Leonardo: here are no mechanical parts also in the Ecat that should generate directly current and there is hope of success;
    thank you also for your wishes of goods in tennis, but in this case there is no hope.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Steven N. Karels,
    One could argue that a multi-billion dollar business would be crazy not to take out an “insurance policy” for any technology that had the potential to seriously disrupt their business– in other words invest in buying & understanding & researching LENR.

    BUT, in strong agreement with your point, Clayton Christensen (“The Innovator’s Dilemma …” for those who haven’t read it, wikipedia has a nice summary) says that, by and large, dominant companies are often the least likely to have the interest or ability to investigate potential disruptive technology. Part of Clayton’s observations is that dominant industries are so intent on remaining dominant vs their peers (big-electricity, in this case), that’s where they focus all their R&D dollars. They are unlikely to take some of those dollars away from their big source of income and retarget it on something that’s seen to be, in the short term, a minor business.

    As a point of interest– One of the examples that Clayton gives is horse drawn vehicles not feeling threatened by hand-made luxury cars, but later losing out to the Model-T, mass produced car.

  221. Beerus

    Dear Andrea,

    Considering Mizuno’s system with palladium coated nickel, everything else remaining the same, what general result would you expect if hydrogen (of the normal isotopic ratio) was utilized instead of deuterium?

    Thank you!

  222. Andrea Rossi

    Beerus:
    Sorry, I never comment the work of our competitors.
    Warm Regards,

  223. Dana

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    In the USA are on course the celebrations for the moon landing half century ago: do you think the Ecat SK Leonardo could be an achievement of the same importance?
    Dana

  224. Andrea Rossi

    Dana:
    If we (our Team) will be able to make the Ecat SK Leonardo 100% self sustaining, able to feed itself without necessity of external power source, obtaining infinite COP, yes. But it is still a dream, we are close, but not cigar yet. We are working very hard to realize this dream.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Dr Rossi,
    here are your stats today on Researchgate:
    full readings 26000 (!!!)
    research interest index: 555.5 (!!!)
    recommendations: 1631 (!!!)
    After 5 months (!!!)
    I think you are the N.1 out of 15 millions. The average numbers for good publications are, respectively, 200, 10 and 10, after years.

    Nils Fryklund

    Why would a power company use an unproven and controversial new power source when nuclear, oil, coal, wind, solar and natural gas are available? Why would they take the risk to be the first power company to commit millions of dollars in a new installation based on an unproven technology? If eCat technology works and is adaptable to electric power generation, it will be through a small scale test project, where risk of lost dollars is minimal.

  228. Nils Fryklund

    Dear Andrea!
    After all the demos you have done, has not any power companies been taking contact and wished to lease an E-catSK for test, before they start to build up new nuclear-, oil-, coal- or windpowerinstallations?
    1. In that case, one or more?
    2. Any wellknown big powercompany?
    Best regards
    Nils Fryklund

  229. Andrea Rossi

    Nils Fryklund:
    Not yet.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  230. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    How are the SK reactors installed with your early pioneer customers performing these days? Have you been able to solve the problems that you said you had been experiencing?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  231. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Yes, we are working well with them so far.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  232. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    1. In the eCat SK Electric, are you using magnets to cause charged particles to rotate in the magnetic field?
    2. Are you using a coil or similar structure to extract the particle’s kinetic energy to convert it to electrical energy?
    3. Do you need to convert the recovered electrical energy into a useful waveform (DC or AC voltsage and current)?
    4. Considering the required conversions necessary to produce useable electricity, will you achieve efficiencies better than that of a more conventional Carnot cycle approach?
    5. If successful with the eCsat SP Electric, will the major energy output of the eCat SK Electric be electricity or is the electricity a secondary product to heat generation?

  233. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    1- I cannot answer to this kind of questions in positive or in negative
    2- see point 1
    3- yes
    4- premature to answer, we are still at an R&D stage
    5- we should be able to decide either solution, depending on the demand of the Clients
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  234. Dear Andrea,
    Congratulations for the increased Researchgate publicity. Just some consideration. You are not yet world-famous, but in case you will be, since it is hard to predict how publicity develops. There are many examples of good people who have risen from neglicence to fame, and then fallen because they could not handle it. Being famous is a test of a person’s psychological strength, and it can be harder to withstand than being neglected. That said, honestly it seems to me that you have the strength of personality that is needed to handle fame, including that you do not take yourself too seriously and can laugh to yourself, although at the same time you take your duty& work very seriously. But one never knows. It can be a devilish thing & no one has infinite strength. I’m not suggesting to do anything differently, just giving my perspective of the situation…
    Best regards, /pekka

  235. Andrea Rossi

    Pekka Janhunen:
    Thank you for your consideration. As a matter of fact, I do not take seriously myself, but I fight to death for the seriousness of the work of my Team. We believe in what we are doing.
    What counts is only the result of our work, all the rest is written in the sand. The attention in Researchgate toward my paper is not given from my name: I have published other papers on Researchgate, but those papers got an average attention. The incredible success has been achieved only by http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    and this means that what counts is not my name, but what I wrote, that. obviously, has been considered useful. Nobody would read that paper, that is difficult to digest, unless he consider it useful. To read my paper is a work, not a leisure.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  236. Emily Richel

    Dr Rossi,
    Are you making use of superconductors in the Ecat SK Leonardo to make electricity directly from the plasma?
    Thanks if you can answer,
    Emily

    Emily Richel:
    No.

    Dear Andrea Rossi, Modestino

    The link to the paper by ‘Tadahiko Mizuno & Jed Rothwell’ does not work properly.

    ‘Increased Excess Heat from Palladium Deposited on Nickel’ – that was posted by Modestino doesn’t work.

    The following link should work.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I saw here
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/researchgate
    that Researchgate has 15 millions of papers. Your paper is in the 1st 1% of the most read, but with the numbers you reached today I think you are in the top 10:
    full readings 25748
    research interest index 543.6
    Recommendations 1575
    With these numbers you are in the top of the top and for a LENR based paper, with the general hostility toward this matter, you made cultural revolution. Actually, your paper is very difficult to read, so it is unbelievable that you collected these results, because means that you intercepted the strong interest of all the field of the scientists and researchers of this field. This success of yours is important in this period.
    Strong congrats
    A.Y.

  241. Andrea Rossi

    Adella Yoshi:
    Every day I read the stats on Researchgate and everyday I get stunned.

  246. Perry

    Prof Rossi,
    How do you calculate the rest mass of a photon?

  247. Andrea Rossi

    Perry:
    1- I AM NOT A PROF
    2- a photon cannot have a rest mass, because it cannot be stationary relative to any inertial reference frame. A photon is always moving at the speed of light relative to any reference frame.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
