  9. Rip Van Winkle

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Have you seen this youtube video from MFMP?

    https://youtu.be/u378_Ykdr9w

    Faithfully yours

    Rip Van Winkle

  10. Andrea Rossi

    Rip Van Winkle:
    Yes, I just saw it. I already responded on this issue minutes ago on this blog to Gerard MkEk. who put the same question.
    This having been said, I continue to wish success to the MFMP to succeed to replicate my effect.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  11. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard MkEk:
    As you know, I never comment the work of my competitors.
    Just two obvious considerations: this patent application has not been allowed because the system cannot work. Should this patent application and its theoretical implications be someway related to my effect, I would be dead many years ago, due to the high energy gamma rays that this theoretical hypothesys implies. Obviously the theoretical bases I am working with are totally strange to this proposal.
    Warm Regards,

  14. Clarissa

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Did you use deuterium in your experiments?
    Thanks,
    Clarissa

  15. Andrea Rossi

    Clarissa:
    I used both the stable isotopes of hydrogen, the results arrived with Protium.
    Warm Regards,

  16. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    I am sure you will have been asked by more people on your blog about the ‘thoughts’of Bob Greenyer of the MFMP that he put on a video and in presentations today.
    See e.g.: http://www.e-catworld.com/2016/09/26/mfmp-prepares-for-an-announcement/
    1. Can you tell us if he is close in the assumed working of LENR?
    2. Are you aware of the patent mentioned?
    Thank you,
    Kind regards, Gerard

  17. H

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Are you oriented to define LENR your technology, or you think it belongs to other fields?
    Thank you

  18. Andrea Rossi

    H:
    We belong to te LENR field.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  19. Rino

    Mr Andrea Rossi,
    Can you explain which has been the inspiration that made you arrive to the present results?
    Cheers,
    Rino

  20. Andrea Rossi

    Rino:
    The spark has been started from the first announcement of F&P. Eventually, after I reaized that the electrolysis was conducting nowhere, the idea to use nickel as a catalyzer of compounds with hydrogen came from the enormous work, and experience, I made with Ni as a chemical catalyzer in hydrogenation processes when I made experiments for my thermolytic plants from 1976 to 1994. Obviously the matter was totally different, but ideas and intuitions make tunnels between arguments apparently strange to each other.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  21. PG

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Which can be so far the lowest possible power of a QuarkX module?

  22. Andrea Rossi

    PG:
    100 W
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  23. Jacques Ransick

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    You said you are going to have about 60 patents of the E-Cat and the QuarkX: are you aware of all the taxes you will have to pay every year to maintain the rights on all those patents?
    Is it worth? Is it not better to have one only patent with all inside?
    Jacques

  24. Andrea Rossi

    Jacques Ransick:
    Obviously we are aware of the costs to maintain in good standing our patents. Our Patent Attorneys are taking care of this issue.Yes, it is very much worth. It is not possible to concentrate everything in one sole patent and we already have consolidated what was possible to.
    Warm Regards,

    What do you answer to all the sceptics that say the fact that your Ecat is not yet in the market massively, 6 years after its introduction, means it is something not to be taken seriously in consideration?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    I understand from your last comments that you resolved the problems you had days ago with the Quarkx: am I right?

  52. Andrea Rossi

    Antonio:
    I had to improve my knowledge of specific Physics getting the help of a specialist from an important concern of California who came here in Miami and lectured me for 16 hours: I learnt very much. Thanks to his lecturing I think I got the key to resolve the problems I had.
    I am working right now and we are going well.

    Andrea, a little fun again. Took a few days vacation to Quebec Canada & spent some time in St Ann Dupre Canyon 30 mi east of city watching Slack Liners. Bought one for myself to practice in back yard, suggest you get one also for our celebration of the E-Cat commercialization’s later.
    Try this link to see backyard & Canyon. Keep trucking, just wish I could help you speed things up. Always walk carefully as you have in the past. Your long time friend & follower Jim

    I’m happy to hear that the thermal peak problem is not a reactor fuel issue. If this is just an issue of materials, design and control I have no doubt you and your team can overcome all barriers to success.

    Thank you for your attention to our work.
    The QuarkX poses new problems respect before.
    It is premature, now, to release the description of the QuarkX.
    Warm Regards,
    Andrea Rossi

  68. Italo R.

    Dear Dr. Rossi, I read from Wikipedia:

    …Robert Watson-Watt, who developed early warning radar in Britain to counter the rapid growth of the Luftwaffe, propounded a “cult of the imperfect”, which he described as, “Give them the third best to go on with; the second best comes too late, the best never comes..

    So, it is better having an imperfect Quark-X NOW, instead of having a perfect one NEVER.

    Kind Regards,
    Italo R.

  69. Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    It depends on the issues to be perfectioned, but I got the core of the argument. Anyway the definition of “nth” best is situational indeed.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  70. Daniel De Caluwé

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    I didn’t follow your forum for several months, so I probably missed a lot, but yesterday I’ve read that you have a problem with high temperature spots in the Ecat-X and Quark-X versions of your Ecats.

    Because you have many (scientific and technological) secrets, also how you increased temperature in Ecat-X en Quark-X versions, I don’t think I really can help you, but when I read about the problems, I had following thoughts:

    Isn’t it so that in the first versions of het E-Cat, that the reaction only occurred within a certain temperature range, so that not only you need a minimum temperature (Tmin) to start (heating up with the resistor), but also that the reaction automatically stops at a higher level of the temperature (Tmax), and therefore your first reactors were intrinsically save, because in the case when cooling fails (falls away), the reaction automatically and completely stops at Tmax. I even thought that sometimes you worked with a negative feedback system, i.e. that sometimes you had to add heat with the resistor to bring the reaction back into the desired temperature range, but I can be wrong.

    But in the later versions (E-CatX and QuarkX) you see hot spots that you can’t control down? Does this mean that maybe other reactions occur at these points (dislocations and/or impurities in the Ni-cristal structure and/or fuel), so that your general control mechanism cannot influence these points? Maybe than you have to measure what’s really happening (i.e. also what reactions do occur) at these points (hot spots)?

    As I’m sure you know much more than we do, I don’t think this remark could be of any help, but I just posted it.

    I further wish you all success in solving this problem.

    Kind Regards,
    Daniel De Caluwé
    Belgium

    P.S. Immediately after posting this message, I leave this place for an area where I have no internet connection (and I don’t use smart-phones 😉 for several days, So I cannot react nor read reactions for several days, but I read it later.

    Dr Joseph Fine:
    I take notice.
    Should I say ” give me a better suggestion ” I’d give evidence to have understood nothing: did I understand ?
    Warm regards,
    A.R.

  72. Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi and readers:

    The “Giacometti principle” is apparently widespread:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfect_is_the_enemy_of_good

    The phrase is found in Italian as Il meglio è nemico del bene (The better is enemy of the good), attested since the 1603 Proverbi italiani (Italian Proverbs), by Orlando Pescetti.[2]

    The phrase was popularized by Voltaire. He first used the saying in Italian in the article “Art Dramatique” in the 1770 edition of the Dictionnaire philosophique.[3] It subsequently appeared in French in his moral poem, “La Bégueule”, in Contes (Tales), 1772, which starts, ascribing it to an unnamed “Italian sage” or “wise Italian”:[4]

    Dans ses écrits, un sage Italien
    Dit que le mieux est l’ennemi du bien.

    (In his writings, a wise Italian
    says that the best is the enemy of good.)

    …….
    Robert Watson-Watt, who developed early warning radar in Britain to counter the rapid growth of the Luftwaffe, propounded a “cult of the imperfect”, which he described as, “Give them the third best to go on with; the second best comes too late, the best never comes.”[
    …..

    And the Russian version:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergey_Gorshkov

    Gorshkov is often associated with the phrase “‘Better’ is the enemy of ‘Good Enough'” (“Лучшее – враг хорошего”) which is reputed to have hung on the wall of his office as a motto.

    Better (and Better) Regards,

    Joseph Fine

  73. Bernie Koppenhofer

    Dr. Rossi: Your question about “Jacometti”. I sent this to you in a previous posting, it is my opinion you are doing the same with your reactors. “Dr. Rossi: Your question to me about Giacometti, the story goes, his wife had to take his sculptures away to sell them because he would carve until there was nothing left, striving for perfection.” It seems to me you are trying to incorporate non ending improvements in your reactors trying to reach perfection. It is my fear you will continue to do this and possibly miss the fame and money you deserve when competitors will reach the market with proof of LENR before you.

  74. Andrea Rossi

    Bernie Koppenhofer:
    What a stupid I am ! I had forgotten, you are right, now I remember perfectly…
    Anyway: thank you for reminding, I will try not to fall into the Jacometti Syndrome.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  79. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    1 – Are the micro-cavities produced during the baking and processing of your fuel visible with an optical microscope or is a SEM required?

    2 – Will the baking process that produces micro-cavities on the surface of nickel powder produce the same or similar features on the surface of a nickel wire?

    3 – Have you detected the presence of alpha particles (or helium atoms after losing their kinetic energy) inside or being emitted from a Quark?

    4 – What is the most unexpected event you have ever observed or detected while monitoring an active Quark?

    5 – Will you ever show us a zoomed in image of a micro-cavity or “reaction site” in a future paper written by yourself or with another author (such as Dr. Cook)?

    6 – Do you feel that hydrogen/lithium is the most optimum fuel for an LERN system in terms of MeV released per reaction and lack of harmful or ionizing emissions?

    7 – Have you allowed any third party scientist, not an employee of Leonardo Corporation, to observe a test of a Quark?

    8 – Are there any complexities in the construction of a Quark that would inhibit automated manufacturing of the device?

    9 – Are you satisfied with the heat resistant materials you are utilizing in the Quark, or are you searching for better materials?

    Thank you.

    Sincerely,
    Hank Mills

  82. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    All your followers are willing to support you in the technical difficulties you are having now, however non of us really know what is going on so a suggestion that would help you is pure luck.
    You told us about high temperature peaks. If it are hot spots then doping the fuel/ reactor interior with halogen material (used in filament spotlights) may help, but I am sure you are aware of that and I have no idea if those materials influence the LENR reaction as well.
    Just a few questions which I hope you will be able to answer:
    1. Can you tell us if this problem with the QuarkX is relatively new or did it appear already from the start?
    2. Is it right to assume that this problem was one the reasons that you went from E-catX to QuarkX?
    I hope you will find a solution soon!
    Thank you for blogging with us.
    Kind regards, Gerard

    Hi Andrea,

    QSI fused quartz products can be heated to 1500 degrees C, or higher, and immersed in cold water without resultant physical damage.

    PHYSICAL & THERMAL PROPERTIES OF FUSED QUARTZ / SILICA
    Fused quartz and silica have an extremely low coefficient of thermal expansion which imparts a high resistance to thermal shock. QSI fused quartz products can be heated to 1500 degrees C, or higher, and immersed in cold water without resultant physical damage. Annealing point is 1140 degrees C, strain point is 1070 degrees C, fusion point is between 1700 and 1800 degrees C.

    Have you ever tested it? http://www.qsiquartz.com/techinfo.html

    Look forward to your reply,

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    It is approximately* the 15th anniversary of the Interview of (Retired) Cal Tech Professor Carver Mead by American Spectator Magazine.

    * Uncertainty Principle, of course.

    http://worrydream.com/refs/Mead%20-%20American%20Spectator%20Interview.html

    The interview may be of interest to you and your readers.

    On a less serious note, a new game has been developed by the University of Waterloo (Canada), Institute of Quantum Computing. It is called “Quantum Cats”.

    Heaven forbid you should spend (or waste) time on this game away from your important work in the lab or with legal discussions. Or whatever time you may find to play tennis with your worthy opponent. Hopefully, You may someday have a few moments in the near future to try out ‘Quantum Cats’.

    Dear Andrea

    Regarding the thermal peaks you mentioned:

    I wonder if the device it self is robust to these high peaks in temperature and if so if the problem more with the supporting apparatus handling the temperament of the device safely or is it the external usage safety that is the issue.

    If thermal buffering is helpful I was wondering if the following articles about thermal control using spinning super atoms would be interesting I hope it can help in some way but even if not or the technology is too new I think the technology itself is quite interesting:

    http://www.spacedaily.com/reports/Researchers_design_solids_that_control_heat_with_spinning_superatoms_999.html

    http://www.nature.com/nmat/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nmat4739.html

    I hope by characterising it you are able to solve this and I wish you all the best with resolving this issue

    Dr. Rossi

    You’ve mentioned that the quarkX has material problems and operates at 1400 degrees C. Single crystal sapphire has a maximum useful operating temperature of 2000 degrees C. See: http://www.crystals.saint-gobain.com/uploadedFiles/SG-Crystals/Documents/sapphire-material-products-properties.pdf It can also be obtained in various shapes. Are you currently using this material?

  96. Andrea Rossi

    Drew G.:
    Thank you for the insight. Yes, we did use such mats.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  97. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Are you making E-Cat plants without the QuarkX, or do you need to have the QuarkX problems resolved before you can finish the first low temperature plants?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  98. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    To make an integration when the upgrade is opportune.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  99. Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Is the E-Cat QuarkX experiencing hot spots that burn through the cell or sudden excess heating causing cell failure or both?

    Dr. Patterson had problems with hot spots with his thin film disc-shaped cell and excess heating with his rod shaped cell.

    Would a hollow shaped cell help dissipate the excess heat, do you think?

    Best of luck with you cell control challenges.

    The American Medical Association has stated that streelights with too much blue can cause problems with human health.
    http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/21/health/led-streetlights-ama/
    Do you think this could hinder your plans for QuarkX lighting applications?
    Best regards

  104. Andrea Rossi

    Joe:
    The core of the problem is in the numbers. Obviously if we will put a thing in the market the safety limitations will have to be assessed.

    Charging produces structural rearranging of 3D matrix. Changes the distances and the interaction probabilities.
    Hunch: possible LENR? Hmmm…
    Batteries are optimized for overheating never happening even while charge per weight is maximized. What are the recipes for failing batteries?When batteries fail LENR succeed?
    AR: yu are like Wright brothers, control is the essence, a prerequisite in recipes for success. You understand this.
    Godspeed!

  124. Bill Harten

    Mr Andrea Rossi:
    You said the most efficient heating system for houses can be made integrating a gas heater with solar panels and a heat pump. Why this, if you can heat with LENR?
    Perhaps because specific needs are met better by targeted solutions?
    Regards,
    Bill Harten

  125. Andrea Rossi

    Bill Harten:
    No, I said this because the domestic E-Cat is not yet available.

    Mr Andrea Rossi:
    What is the situation of the industrialization of the 1 MW E-Cats?

    Buon lavoro

    Pietro F.

  127. Andrea Rossi

    Pietro F.:
    Small scale industrialization is on course. Large scale industrialization needs longer times, but not too long I hope.

  128. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    Even though I am still a bit embarrassed at asking you if you knew about “vanadium” I risk yet another such encounter with such outcome by offering you this material for your attention. It is from 2012, and you have been very busy since then, so maybe it slipped through the cracks. The paper addresses improving hydrogen storage behavior of LiAlH4 using dopants, specifically TiO2 and TiCl3-doped samples.

    If you google this title of the paper exactly:
    “Improved Dehydrogenation Properties of TiDoped LiAlH4”

    you will find links to the paper for easy downloading. I was working on loading hydrogen onto 5 of my test fuel cells (this takes awhile) and I found the paper “interesting” and hope that it might be of use to you and others that are working with LENR.

    Here is the conclusion of the 10 page paper:

    “CONCLUSIONS
    The results reported herein elucidate the influence of the different Ti dopants (Ti, TiO2, and TiCl3) on stability and the dehydrogenation properties (Tdec and EA). A distinguishing feature of our work is that, unlike previous studies whereby the influence of Ti-based additives on the dehydrogenation properties of LiAlH4 were studied individually or with other transition metal additives, here we have focused on the effects of various types and amounts of Ti precursors (Ti, TiO2, and TiCl3) under identical conditions to allow for meaningful comparison. The efficiency of the Ti precursors in improving the dehydrogenation properties decreases in the order: TiCl3 > TiO2 > Ti. Interestingly, the Al/Li ratio of samples doped with 10 mol % additives decreases in the same order, indicating that the efficiency of the Ti precursor is correlated with the amount of Li segregated to the surface or the number of Li vacancies created during ball milling. In terms of short-term stability, as received and milled LiAlH4 are quite stable; however, Li3AlH6 is formed after milling LiAlH4 with any of the Ti precursors, suggesting the occurrence of reaction R1b. The effect of the dopant on the stability of LiAlH4 increased in the following order: TiCl3 < TiO2 < Ti . Our work has revealed the relative benefits of TiO2 as a dopant for LiAlH4. TiO2-doped LiAlH4 has a higher stability than TiCl3-doped samples, and the activity of TiO2 in decreasing Tdec and EA of LiAlH4 is comparable to TiCl3. The XPS results reveal significant reduction of TiO2 and TiCl3, and the segregation of Li cations to the surface of LiAlH4 during ball milling. We propose that both phenomena, which were not observed in samples doped with Ti, appear to work in concert and are the underlying mechanisms for the improvement in the dehydrogenation properties observed in TiO2-doped and TiCl3-doped samples."

    I wish you and your team success in the many directions of your efforts!

    Warm Regards,
    Tom

  158. James

    Mr Rossi:
    The puppets continue to say that the production of 1 MW was impossible in the restricted area of JM factory, but this is ridiculous, the area is more than sufficient for the production and the use of such energy. They know this, but continue to say the contrary: why?
    Cheers,
    James

  160. Claudio Ferrara

    Dear Dr Rossi:
    Going back to some posts ago, you mentioned the fact that the QuarkX is also producing some kind of thrust, Is it possible that it is generated by the blue light emitted by the QuarkX?
    Your follower and future customer
    Claudio Ferrara

  161. Andrea Rossi

    Claudio Ferrara:
    The thrust issue is far to be resolved technologically. Anyway it is not generated by the light.
    Thank you for your sustain.

  164. Michel

    Dear Dr Rossi,

    Sorry if you already answered, but do you think hydrino theory is consistent, and can it explain the Rossi effect since the domestic E-cat uses Hydrogen?

  174. Martin Clevette

    Dr Rossi,
    You probably have noticed that the attention on the LENR is decreased in these last months. Does this worry you?
    Cheers,

  176. Isaev Irka

    Dear Mr Rossi:
    At which point is the 10 kW domestic E-Cat? When is the production scheduled to begin: 2016? 2017? Or?
    Thanks,
    Isaev Irka, Engineer

  177. Andrea Rossi

    Isaev Irka:
    I am nor ready to make a scheduling for the domestic, because they do not depend only on us.

  180. Haywood

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Which is the difference between virtual particles and real particles, in a simple nutshell as you are so good to explain?
    Thank you,
    Haywood

  181. Andrea Rossi

    Haywood:
    Real particles are stable and they are:
    Among Bosons: photons and gravitons
    Among Fermions: quarks, protons, electrons, neutrinos
    Virtual particles are unstable and have a half life of about 10^-23s
    Virtual particles, as a matter of fact, are not real particles, but resonances of waves from the fields of the stable particles that are interacting: they indicate how quantum fields are vibrating during the interactions between stable elementary particles.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  182. Lara

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    The COP that you are getting from the QuarkX continues to be very high, as we could imagine from the blue halo of the photo you published several months ago?

  183. Andrea Rossi

    Lara:
    Yes.
    F8.

  192. Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You posted “our technology could retrofit efficiently the coal powered plants.”

    Can you provide any performance data on your current technology as to:

    a. How long in time from a cold start to full output power for such a plant?
    b. How long in time from 50% output to 100% output after initial startup for such a plant?
    c. How long in time from 100% output to 50% output after initial startup for such a plant?
    d. Do you believe that the units will run, without interruption, for months at a time?
    e. Do you envision a system design where individual units (or reactors) could be changed or maintained while the entire ensemble of reactors maintain maximum design output?

    Your proposed application, if implemented, would significantly reduce carbon emissions. China has built 1GW electrical generation systems. Even with a Carnot efficiency of 40%, you are looking at 2.5 GW of thermal output, unless your newer designs can produce electricity more efficiently.

  193. Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    a. we are working to make it very short. I am not yet able to give a number, because we have room to improve
    b. same as in a
    c. idem
    d. yes
    e. yes
    Thank you for your insight,

  196. Robert Curto

    Dr. Rossi, I am reading a book. Dark Money
    It is 380 pages. I hope you will read just 200 pages.
    It tells the story of how a group of Billionaires who have banded together to do great harm.
    They made their money in the Oil, Gas, and Coal Industry.
    One man who made his money in Oil, started to buy Coal Reserves.
    He now owns 22 Billion Tones of Coal.
    They will spend more then a Billion dollars on the 2016 Election.
    They BRIBE people to vote their way.
    The Subprime Court said there is no limit on how much money you can give as a
    “Campaign Contribution.”
    They of course do not believe that Global Warming is true.
    They are spending hundreds of millions of dollars, to tell the American people that Global
    Warming is not true.
    One Scientist tried to tell the American people the Truth.
    They went after him, he and his family received many Death Threats.
    He worked for Penn State University, They put such pressure on Penn State, that they had him investigated for God knows what.
    They made his Life a living Hell.
    It was also a heads up to other Scientist to keep their mouth shut.
    If they believe that E-Cat is a Threat to them, they will come after you with all their enormous Power.

    Robert Curto:
    These are the conspiracy theories that populated many books and movies like Bond, James Bond. Good sense tells me that smart people will invest in good technologies. I insist that all the valid energies sources will be integrated. For example, our technology could retrofit efficiently the coal powered plants.

    How much of your time you have to spend every day for the litigation? Is this activity stealing time from the R&D on the E-Cat?
    Cheers,
    C.

  199. Andrea Rossi

    C.:
    In this very period the activity on the litigation is immense. I’d say it takes 50% of my time. For example yesterday I worked 8 hours for my Attorneys. I had to cut off all the other engagements, but stealing time to the sleep the activity on the E-Cat goes on as well as possible.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Will you participate to the next ICCF in Japan ?
    Thanks,

  201. Andrea Rossi

    Denis:
    I cannot, because I am too much engaged in my activity and cannot leave the battlefield. I know that Prof. Norman Cook will present a very important paper, not directly related to our work, but very important under the theoretical point of view. Obviously, I send my best wishes of success to all the participants to the next ICCF.

    hello dr . Rossi , I send you a very interesting publication .

    Condensed Matter Nuclear Reactions
    P.A. Mosier-Boss
    Senior Scientist, Global Energy Corporation, San Diego, CA

    L.P. Forsley
    JWK Corporation, Annandale, VA
    Global Energy Corporation, San Diego, CA
    University of Texas, NETL, Austin, TX

    Conclusion
    This comprehensive collection of peer-reviewed papers clearly defines the existence of, and many of
    the parameters associated with, condensed matter nuclear science. The palladium/deuterium codeposition
    protocol has shown itself to be robust, replicable and repeatable. As such, it provides an accessible
    doorway to investigate this novel, nuclear phenomena. It has the promise of controllable nuclear
    reactions without ionizing radiation; compact, green nuclear energy sources and a means to remediate
    existing nuclear waste. We ignore this new capability at our technological, environmental and commercial
    peril.

    Feds May Have Made A Huge Breakthrough In Cold Fusion

    A federal agency may have just discovered cold fusion, according to unconfirmed reports.

    A report from the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) claimed government researchers had confirmed the existence of a cold fusion nuclear reaction. The report was allegedly authored by scientists from Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command and the University of New Mexico.

    Mr Seiberlich,

    In such a scenario, Andrea Rossi could potentially achieve something significant despite the other negative outcomes: creating financial difficulties for all of his competitors whom are relying on IH for funding, some of whom are claimed by Rossi to have received portions of the E-Cat IP from IH. If IH went bankrupt then the companies performing research on the other LENR technologies that are considered part of IH’s portfolio could suffer: unless another off-shoot of Cherokee formed to fund them. This could possibly give Andrea Rossi a larger window of opportunity before copycats attempt to commercialize products based on the Rossi Effect.

  238. Andrea Rossi

    Anonymous:
    Independently from the comment of Mr Seiberlich, which I cannot comment for obvious reasons, when we will put in the massive market our products the competition against us will be extremely difficult for anybody. Our foes will be clamped between the action of our Attorneys to defend our IP and the tremendous competitivity we are working for. When I was boxing ( I did it from 12 to 17 years old) my coach ( Nazzareno Giannelli, European champion of the flyweights, one of the most classic boxers of the world) used to say: ” Do not worry, when it turns to chatter everybody is the world champion, in the real fight in the ring things are very much different”.

    Dear Andrea Rossi:
    The gang of IH is trying to beat you with two things: first, make the litigation as long as possible to make you remain without money to continue and second, file for chapter 11 ( bankrupcy) with IH, to make your victory a Pirrus victory. Probably you will win, but so late, at so high price and so without any refund, that the matter of the fact will be a big loss for you, even if you formally will be the winner. Cherokee Funds already used the trick of the bankrupcy of their front-corporations: Tom Darden is a master in these kind of plays ( see http://www.postandcourier.com/article/20160208/PC05/160209426).

  258. Karl-Henrik Malmqvist

    Dear Andrea,
    For your early E-Cat designs it was necessary with 3-phase current for activation and control issues. In the US the frequency is 60 Hz and in Europe 50 Hz. If the E-Cat is in SSM a big part of the time the different frequencies will probably not affect the COP.
    It is easy with standard electronic components to make 3-phase with adjustable frequency out of 1-phase or DC. I understand that for 1 MW Cats it is necessary with 3-phase to get the power needed to start the process but for smaller home units 1-phase connection would be preferable.
    Has your team designed 1-phase connections where the electronic control box converts to whatever is needed for the E-Cat (QuarkX) or is still 3-phase necessary?
    Best Regards,
    Karl-Henrik, Sweden

    Because kW is power, power is a rating: rating on time, obviously, is a nonsense.
    Please no more questions on this issue: they who still did not understand the concept of energy, if really interested to learn it and not just to displace air with the tongue talking about an issue they do not know, can go to study a manual of Physics.
    I suggested “Physics and our Universe: how it all works” of Prof Richard Wolfson ( just google it up) because is very easy to understand, provided the reader has a high school Physics good background, and being both in CD and paper allows an easy learning. Of course, there are thousands of other manuals at your disposal and choice.

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for saying that you will try and get a picture of the Quark X to us. I have a great idea for a picture!

    With the quark X being so small, surely it is now small enough to fit in a kettle and boil some water to make a cup of tea with it. I believe that has been the long standing request to any LENR researcher! :)

    Even better a video showing the quark x in a kettle along with input power readings from beginning to end as the water boils! It won’t do anything to quiet the skeptics but it will make a great story.

    I will settle for just a picture though. hehe

    The certification we re obtaining for the QuarkX is related to the safety.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Sorry to bother you for this, but there is a discussion between friends and we have chosen you as the referee: in a roller coaster, when you make a 360 degrees loop and you have a briefcase seat on the floor of the car, when the car is upside-down and your head is downside and the floor is upside, will the briefcase fall down, due to the gravity?
    Thank you.
    Alan

  288. Andrea Rossi

    Alan:
    No, it will not, because to make a 360 degrees loop the car has to prevail the gravity force by means of its acceleration. Once the gravity force has been prevailed upon by acceleration, all the objects inside the system will not be prevailed by the gravity force, therefore you can stay in your car during a 360 degrees loop with your briefcase seat on the floor, and it will not fall down ( this comes from 2nd Newton Law).
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
    P.S.
    If in your briefcase there is much money, let alone the second of Newton and hold your briefcase tight, along the 1st sheriff’s law:
    ” If you have there much money
    hold it tight to you, dear honey”
    ( Patent pending)

  289. Terry H.

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for your honest answer. I have a quick question & I hope a quicker solution to those of us who have been following your progress on getting a domestic E-Cat/QuarkX on the market.

    Back when I was a lot younger (20-23) & braver I built an experimental airplane (VariEze). The way Rutan was able to get his invention to market as quick as he did… since his new plane was considered an experimental aircraft the homebuilt aircraft builders, like myself, agreed to & assumed the liability. We bought the plans from him & other venders made the parts & we put the planes together. I see your QuarkX like an engine that produces heat & electricity. The other parts (H20 tanks, backup batteries, inverters etc) we will need to build our systems to heat & power our homes off the grid can be bought from other venders.

    After you have a working “Preproduction” (d) QuarkX or smaller (10-30kWh) Industrial E-Cat version that is stable and doesnt need 24hr supervision would you be willing & able to let 500-1000 of your most loyal & vetted followers to buy your 1st generation prototype QuarkX “engine” (b4 it is certified) for us to install in our own non disclosed locations that you could monitor via internet w/ Cameras & temp probes to help you with your next “Field Test” (e) phase?

    I think this could be a mutal benifit to work out any other bugs before you go into “Full Production” (f) & you will also have data from the bata testers to show your future customers.

    Hopefully #1 Loyal Customer

  291. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    You told us on 9/2/16 that the new tests were mainly dedicated to safety issues and therefore to the certifications. So, you must have made great strides on the safety issues, and hopefully you have achieved the certification for the QuarkX device too! I imagine that running independently of full time operator attendance still needs development, which needs to be completed before industrial plants can be commercially acceptable and that will also make them safer to operate, too.

    I also understand that you are not quite ready for the commercialization of the QuarkX, that you possibly will prepare an industrial industrial prototype within this year (no promises though), but you cannot schedule the commercialization of domestic units so far, because it does not depend on you.

    We also need to remember, though, that commercial units need to begin to be integrated into the power grid to insure minimum disruption of the economy that exists, and the ones that this decision depends upon require this action to begin before domestic production begins, which does not depend on you. So then, two questions please?

    (Q1) Was the certification for the QuarkX finally completed? (Y/N) If so, that would really inspire all of us that are following you!

    (Q2) Are the commercial unit productions required before the domestic unit productions can begin by the decision makers that this depends upon (which is not you)? (Y/N) (I think we could all live with that.)

    I hope you achieved the certification for the QuarkX, Andrea. (I also hope it will not take as long as it did for Pons & Fleischmann to begin the domestic production).

    Congratulations again on the positive test!

    Warm regards!

    I was glad to read your QuarkX test went well & you’re deadline goal is to ” complete the R&D on the QuarkX to sell the first unit within 2016″.

    I’m trying to put together a backup battery system in case the grid goes down. 

    I’m looking to either purchase:
    a Tesla Powerwall (6.7k/5.6kWh for $3.5k) 3650 @ 80% w/ 10yr limited warrantee.

    or a LG Chem (6.4k/5.4kWh for $4.8k) cycle life 5800 @ 80% discharge & both have lithium nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) cell chemistry. 

    or a PylonTech Extra2000 (2.4k/1.92kWh up to max 9.6kwh for $1.1k ea) cycle life 4000 @ 80% & has “At present the safest Lithium combination is lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4 or LFP for short) which is also one of the few lithium batteries which can be recycled.”

    I plan to purchase your domestic QuartX (hopefully b4 the next polar shift:-) to provide heat to 50 gal H20 tank for our domestic hot water (130F max) & a second larger 60gal tank for our radiant floor heating (I live in SW WI & heating 600′ min to 1600 sq ft if possible) system which I need 140F max. Since it also produces electricty I’d like to use the power to keep my batteries charged. (We use & the average American home uses 30kWh per day.) 

    1. Will one QuartX do the job? 

    2. If not how many will I need to puchase to keep the battery from discharging to 80% & be fully recharged by morning?

    3. How much will each QuartX cost?

    (To recharge the batteries with a solar system I est. would cost $10-13k)

    4. Which battery backup grid system would you recomend I purchase; Telsa, LG or PylonTech?
    OR do you recommend I should wait for your QuartX (10kWh?) system because no storage batteries will be required?

    Thanks for your hard work & advice!

    1- We are not ready for the commercialization of the QuarkX, possibly we will prepare an industrial prototype within this year, but I cannot schedule the commercialization of domestic units so far: therefore we do not have yet the subject for that job
    2- I am not able to answer, as a consequence of what said above
    3- same as above
    4- same as above
    Thank you for your attention to our work,

    Dr Rossi:
    I sent a comment in which I suggested an alternative way to define a kWh, but you spammed it.
    Why?

  297. Andrea Rossi

    W.B.:
    I am receiving comments with any sort of stupidities from persons that want to find alternatives to the definition or use of kW, kWh, kWh/h; my favourite is the definition of “kW/h” ( that obviously does not exist). I have no more time to spend on this, since the correct definitions are in all the manuals of Physics, there is nothing to surrogate, invent, propose, younameityougotit. Who is seriously interested to the matter can just study a manual ( I have suggested a very good one, easy to understand for everybody having a high school background).
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  298. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    A few questions on the QuarkX if you don’t mind:

    1. Have you made any new QuarkX reactors beyond the three that you have been testing?
    2. Was your new partner involved in the recent testing?
    3. How many people are now involved in QuarkX R&D?
    4. Is the QuarkX going to be part of the first industrial E-Cats you are building?

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

  299. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    1- in the making
    2- yes
    3- enough
    4- maybe

    Dt. Rossi,
    From my school-days I remember many people having difficulties to distinguish between power and energy.
    So, thank you for the explanation what kW, kWhours/h and kWh stand for.

    What I would like to know in addition: How to calculate how much matter does a 1MW plant convert to thermal energy over 1 year (=8760 hours) time periode?
    Did you calculate the loss in mass of the fuel, and did you weight the fuel before and after the test?

    Ciao,
    Seeker

  301. Andrea Rossi

    Seeker:
    You are right, also Prof. Sergio Focardi told me one day, while we were working on the E-Cat, the same thing, that the concept of energy, strangely, for many is difficult to understand and that many of his students had to be dismissed from the examens because had not been able to explain the definition of a kWh, a kWh/h and a kW. Perhaps can be useful to remind, to persons that have a minimal base of Physics, that a kWh is a quantum of energy that defines the energy that can be generated from a horse in a precise period of time. This is why kWh is a unit ( = a quantum) of energy, not of energy/time and this is why to say that you can eliminate the “h” from the numerator and the denominator of the formula kWh/h is a blaspheme. No person in this world with a degree in Physics will ever say a stupidity like this. But, strangely to me, many persons are not able to understand this concept, which is very simple and intuitive.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  302. Ing. Michelangelo De Meo

    Dr Rossi:
    When do you think the E-Cat, at least industrial, will arrive in Italy?

  303. Andrea Rossi

    Ing. Michelangelo De Meo:
    When we will start with Europe.
    Warm Regards,

  304. Karl-Henrik Malmqvist

    Dear Andrea,
    In the car industry it is common to make
    a) First prototype generation, few units, followed by tests and improvements.
    b) Second prototype generation, few units, followed by tests and improvements.
    c) Third prototype generation, few units, followed by tests and improvements.
    d) Preproduction, higher number of units made in a way close to mass production.
    e) Field tests with real costumers, adjustments.
    f) Production for limited markets, adjustments only in the production line.
    g) Full production for many markets.
    Would you say that you now are preparing for d) regarding QuarkX ?
    Best Regards,

    Dear Andrea,
    Congratulations with the good outcome of the tests of the QuarkX. I believe these tests were very important for the future of this device.
    Some questions if I may:
    1. Is it inherently safe now?
    2. Is it right to assume that also the domestic and other mass applications of the QuarkX are now in sight?
    3. How long do you estimate to gear-up mass production?
    4. Will the first application be a industrial plant?
    5. If 4 is ‘yes’, will it only produce heat or also electricity and/or light?
    6. Is it possible to show us a picture of a QuarkX in operation?
    Thank you for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  310. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    1- we are working on this issue
    2- I hope yes

  321. Tom Conover

    Dear Andrea,

    It looks like the DoD is coming out of the closet this month. For your entertainment, and for your information, here is my synopsis of the 132 page report (slightly edited) entitled “Mosier Boss Investigation”.

    http://lenr-canr.org/acrobat/MosierBossinvestigat.pdf

    Since before the Pons and Fleshman fiasco in 1989, DoD was aware of the validity of the reality of LENR. They now report that Cold Fusion reactions may be enhanced in the presence of either an external electric or magnetic field, or by optically irradiating the cathode of cells driven at their optimal operating point (OOP). This optimal operating point has now been code named “The OOPS Factor” demonstrating a massive failure on the part of the DoD to provide necessary information to the public upon discovery. (OOPS!)

    How does it work? “Optimal operating points appear when heat AND power gain, (or helium or tritium production), are presented as a function of the input electrical power.” (OOPS!)

    The Pd/D co-deposition process has been shown to provide a reproducible means of manufacturing Pd-D nano-alloys that induce low energy nuclear reactions (LENRs). (OOPS!)

    On March 23, 1989, Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons, professors of chemistry at the University of Utah, held a press conference to announce the results of electrochemical experiments that produced more heat than could be accounted for by chemical means. They speculated that the heat had a nuclear origin. The experiments were quickly dubbed “Cold Fusion” by the news media. (OOPS!)

    At the time of the announcement in 1989, SPAWAR Systems Center Pacific scientists were involved in developing batteries for torpedo propulsion. The lead scientist in those torpedo propulsion efforts, Stanislaw Szpak, was aware of the Fleischmann–Pons experiment (OOPS!) prior to the press conference and knew about the long incubation times needed to fully load bulk Pd with D.To reduce the incubation time, he developed the Pd/D co-deposition process as a means to initiate low energy nuclear reactions (LENR) inside the Pd lattice.

    In 1989, the Department of Energy (DoE) conducted a review of the phenomenon. The conclusions of the review were that the claims of excess heat were not convincing (OOPS!), that the excess heat was not shown to be associated with a nuclear process (OOPS!), and that the evidence of neutron emission was not persuasive (OOPS!). In the aftermath of the DoE review, it was concluded that heat was not going to convince anyone that nuclear events were occurring inside the palladium lattice (OOPS!). Also heat does not provide any information as to the processes occurring inside the Pd lattice (OOPS!). For these reasons, the emphasis of the research done as SSC-Pacific shifted from heat (OOPS!) to looking for nuclear emissions such as -/X-rays and tritium.

    But how does it work?

    By using the Pd/D co-deposition technique and co-depositional variants6 (based on flux control7,8), solid evidence (i.e., excess heat generation,7,9,10, hot spots,11 mini-explosions, ionizing radiation,12 near- IR emission,13 tritium production,14 transmutation,15 and neutrons,16) has been obtained that indicate that lattice assisted nuclear reactions can and do occur within the Pd lattice. The results to date indicate that some of the reactions occur very near the surface of the electrode (within a few atomic layers). Also, the reactions may be enhanced in the presence of either an external electric or magnetic field, or by optically irradiating the cathode of cells driven at their optimal operating point (OOP). Optimal operating points appear when heat, power gain, or helium or tritium production, are presented as a function of the input electrical power.17,18 They allow standardization, and driving with electrical input power beyond the OOP yields a falloff of the production rates.

    Optimal operating points appear when heat, or power gain, are presented as a function of the input electrical power. (OOPS!)

    Twenty seven years later, DoD decided to stop repressing this technology, and publicly annouce that cold fusion, is in fact, real. (OOPS!)

  325. Dear Dr. Rossi,

    Yes, transmutations of elements in nature occurs frequently. This is one major reason that the transmutation of elements in “Cold Fusion” LENR experiments cannot be ignored by science.

    http://www.healthandhealing.revolutionoftruth.com/healthandhealing_004.htm

    Thank you, Tim Conover, for the DOD report link. Some of us have been waiting 27 years to see the DOD and the physics establishment “eat crow”.

    Dr. Rossi, looking forward to your continued progress with all your impressive E-Cat cells.

    Dear Andrea
    There is plenty of evidence that low energy nuclear transmutations also occur in biology and then at extremely low temperatures.
    See: http://www.holleman.ch/index.html See von Herzele (1876-81) – L.Kevran (1960) -Holleman (1970-80) and many others.
    It ‘clear that there is an important area of physical phenomena that is not explained, and that the official science neglects as well as for LERN.
    Do you think that these biological transmutations could be part of the same category of phenomena of LERN?
    With love
    Foxtrot

  330. Andrea Rossi

    Foxtrot:
    I don’t think so. I do not know this specific matter.
    It is totally strange to my work and to my studies.
    Warm Regards

  331. KeithT

    Dear Andrea,
    You replied to Hank Mills on Aug 30th that electricity production by Carnot cycle was 35%, is this figure based on your experiments, or was this figure a theoretical prediction of what may be possible.
    Kind regards, Keith Thomson.

  332. Andrea Rossi

    KeithT:
    35- 40% is the average efficiency of the Carnot Cycle at high temperature.

  339. clovis Ray

    Dear Sir.
    I think you are doing a remarkable job herding your cats, there is a lot of folks talking about how your reactor is nuclear, could you expound on this subject, I remember you saying in the past that you thought it was closer to cold fusion than LENR, The nay sayers, are still trying to scare folks with this, I know that things change as a project matures, should it still be called LENR. I like the phrase
    THE ROSSI EFFECT,and am taking credit for coining the phrase, hope you don’t mind, and as well could you say if you and Mr.Cook think that superconduction may be taking place, hope this is not asking too much, but I did read in one of your comments that this could or might be happening, thank you so much for all you do,and god bless you, and keep his hand on your shoulder.

  340. Andrea Rossi

    Clovis Ray:
    I think LENR could be still the right definition. Multiple measurements made also by official parties have given evidence that outside the E-Cats there are not ionizing radiations beyond the allowed limits.
    Thank you for your sustain,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,
    1. After you invented Quark X have you stopped further developement of initial e-cat model and hot cat?
    2. Can we consider e-cat I, hot cat, and cat-and-mouse conceptions obsolete?
    3. Are you currently redoing the work you have already done for your older models (prototypes)?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Concerning the working of the ECAT I have the following questions :
    1- Is it true that a (changing) magnetic field will stop/slow the low energy nuclear reaction in the ECAT
    2- When no magnetic field is present the reaction can occur ?

  348. Andrea Rossi

    Bert:
    1- yes in some configurations
    2- this is an object of a patent application on course and I cannot make predisclosure

    Dear Dr. Rossi, I have discovered the existence of a genius inventor, Dean Kamen, who has many points in common with you (I didn’t know him). And he is an extraordinary person like you. He invented many devices that help people, and his latest invention is a compact water purifier that uses the “vapor compression system” named Slingshot. It can use dirt and contaminated water, and produces completely clean drinkable water This device is already in experimental distribution in many poor and underdeveloped countries of the world with the help of Coca-Cola as a distributor.
    In a documentary that I have seen on Netflix, he talks about his extraordinary life, inventions, works, family and dedication towards people to fight disability and diseases. Exceptional man, a genius, to be admired.
    Here is a brief description of Dean Kamen:

    Johnie Sista:
    Any good Physics manual can do. In particular, I suggest “Physics and our Universe” by Richard Wolfson ( Prof of Physics at Middlebury College )- Chantilly, VA, USA, 2011.
    Specifically for the definition of Power and Energy, see there Vol 1, Chapter 2, Lecture 11. This manual is easy to follow for everybody that has at least high school Math and Phys background.

    2. Regarding your test next week: I guess most of your effort on the QuarkX has been gone in making it intrinsically safe, such that it will cause a minimum of damage when it runs out of control. Did I guess right?
    Good luck with the tests!
    Thank you for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  379. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    1- I never have been in contact with this company and did not know about them, therefore I cannot comment.
    2- This is an issue we are working upon.
    Thank you for your wishes,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  380. Dear Andrea Rossi

    Today there was a recall by Samsung regarding their Samsung Galaxy Note 7, whose batteries can catch fire and/or explode.

    In this regard, I have to ask how far the ECAT and Quark X Technology can be scaled in your opinion? Is it possible in the medium term to produce a Micro-Quark-X Device that e.g. can supply a smartphone with energy and if yes, do you think it would be safer than e.g. for example the chemical alternatives such as lithium batteries?

    And how it behaves in principle with the efficiency in terms of scale? Does the efficiency of a Quark-X device remains proportionally the same, regardless of whether, for example, is a mini-reactor or a MW plant?

    Thanks for your attention and all the best

    Dear Andrea,

    Are you doing a new kind of test with the QuarkX this week — something that has not been done before? Can you provide any details about it?

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

  387. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    We are making a new kind of test, mainly dedicated to safety issues and therefore to the certifications.
    I cannot give details, so far.

    Dear Andrea,
    your answer to Dan is perfect and is what I learnt at school from my teacher.

  390. Mark Saker

    Dear Andrea,

    You mention that the quark is so small it can be multiplied to make any combination of sizes.

    You have obviously designed an apparatus to hold (and control) multiple quarkx in unison. Is it possible to give an estimate of how many you can fit in a given space including the apparatus.

    For example, how many could you fit in a shoebox?

    Also if you can answer, how many quarkX will make up the district heating sale you are involved with in Sweden, or will that be using lowcat, or hotcat?

    Thanks

    Mark

  391. Andrea Rossi

    Mark Saker:
    The energy density will be about double than the one of the Lugano apparatus.
    It is impossible to know how many modules are necessary without precise parameters of the utilizer.

    your blog is read every day by many people, like me, who are passionate about your work and your person.
    We look forward that the lawsuit before the Court is completed, surely with your victory.
    You deserve this conclusion, not only from the economic point of view, but above all from a moral point of view.
    And you can not waste your time in this way.
    You have to do a lot more important things, for the good of all of us.

  394. Greg Leonard

    Dear AR
    I have just been reading the latest entry to the court papers from the link.
    http://www.sifferkoll.se/sifferkoll/rossi-mtd-on-counterfud-reveals-the-stupidity-of-darden-vauhn-and-their-jones-day-lawyer-drones/
    I understand why you found the IH plea for dismissal so amusing – I nearly fell off my chair when I read the following in Sifferkoll’s blog.

    ‘… Court could also infer that Defendants failure to replicate the results achieved by the independent expert could be attributable to (a) Defendants’ failure to follow the instructions and formula contained in the E-Cat IP; (b) Defendants’ intentional sabotage in an effort to avoid having to pay Plaintiffs Eighty-Nine Million Dollars; (c) Defendants’ mere scientific incompetence; (d) Defendants’ use of substandard quality components; (e) Defendants’ failure to properly measure the energy input and output; and/or a litany of other equally likely possibilities. …’

    It seems clear to me that IH know they are beaten but, maybe, they are succeeding in their aim – which is to delay the arrival of the EcatX in the market.
    Every hour that you spend on the court case (up to 40% of your time), is an hour less in development work.
    Every hour lost in development is another hour’s delay in the implementation.
    Every hour delay in the implementation is another million dollars of profit to Big Oil and Big Energy.

    I, like many others here, would like to help free you from the shackles of the court case.
    Perhaps some extra members for your legal team could be funded by ‘crowdsourcing’ from among us…
    regards,
    Greg Leonard

  396. Gennady

    Dear Andrea,

    Just a little follow up on your kind response to my questions regarding domestic e-cat ( a’ la James Bond’s Spectre). I am sure this topic is very dear to a lot of your readers :)

    1. What the applications of the output light from domestic unit?
    2. Do you expect certification completed in 2017, following by mass production in the same year?
    3. What unit sizes are you anticipating (5 kw, 10 kw, 20, kw, etc)?

    Kind Regards,

    Gennady

  397. Andrea Rossi

    Gennady:
    1- any application wherein light is useful
    2- I hope
    3- the QuarkX is so small and so pilable up that theoretically in the range there is room for any application. Practically, it has to be seen.
    Warm Regards,

    Walter:
    They are not inconsistent, they are consistent as a series of puppets that take advantage of non expert readers to create a hostile environment around the character they are paid to destroy. It is an old story that many years ago worked, today does not: twenty years ago it was enough to buy a couple of corrupted journalists of main newspapers to assassinate a character and prepare the environment against his work. Today, with the internet, it is impossible, because if you write a stupidity or a falsity it backfires immediately if the reaction is proper. This is the double edge issue of the blogs: from one side, they allow to any imbecile to play the guru, from the other they allow anybody to make the guru naked like the famous king, in real time.

  414. Dear Hank Mills,

    1) “Sailboats can often travel faster than the speed of the wind. Why would this not be the same for an electric sail in space?” Short answer: lack of keel. Longer answer: I cannot discount such possibility entirely, but currently no way is known to do it.

    2) About the so-called EM-drive. Until someone proves such device experimentally, I do not find it interesting. Theoretically, such a device would be orders of magnitude (or perhaps infinitely) more difficult to understand and to accept than the E-cat, because it would require breaking of a fundamental conservation law (energy-momentum conservation) which would imply that translation invariance of spacetime would be broken. Such possibility is unlikely, because we can observe the universe in large distances without seeing any other evidence of such breaking.

    3) About your “hunch number three”: indeed, such possibility cannot be discounted, because there are good reasons to believe that technological life (including us in the next few hundred years) would choose to live in artificial habitats built of small body materials of a solar system, because such habitats can provide much more living area than planets and have other benefits as well. If technological life exists and is long-lived, it’s more likely to find it in such habitats (which can be located anywhere in any solar system, not just in the so-called habitable zone) than on planets, because the time it spends on its home planet is probably short (based on our own history).

  415. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for the kind words.

    My three big dreams in life are as follows:

    1) Find a wife.

    2) Live an extended lifespan with her utilizing rejuvenation therapies and anti-aging drugs. I knew a couple once who were married 67 years until death separated them — I’d like the challenge of exceeding that massive accomplishment.

    3) Travel in space (with said wife) utilizing advanced energy, propulsion, and gravity technologies with the goal of finding or making contact with intelligent extraterrestrial lifeforms. My hunch is that they could very well exist in our solar system living inside of artificial habitats.

    After I accomplish all that, my hope is that we’d die a peaceful death at the age of several hundred years and explore the afterlife together.

    Yep, it is a dream and highly idealistic. But it is what my heart yearns for.

  416. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    May God help you to realize all your dreams.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  417. Hank Mills

    Pekka,

    Sailboats can often travel faster than the speed of the wind. Why would this not be the same for an electric sail in space?

    Anyway, I’m much more interested in the potential of the EM Drive than the electric sail. My hunch is that the EM Drive will prove to be much more powerful and efficient than most people expect. For example, I don’t buy into the idea that as the EM Drive accelerates that thrust diminishes. I expect that it remains constant or nearly so.

  418. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    No one could pay me enough money to send you off into outer space aboard an E-Cat powered vehicle; conversely, I’d be fighting to get that seat for myself. Exploring outer space has been a dream of mine since childhood, and I’m convinced that fast and practical space travel will require breakthrough technologies such as the Rossi Effect and the EM Drive.

  419. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    Well, I wish you to be able to reach your dream…as for me ( considering I am not an astrophysicist ) I prefer to remain on the Earth to make well my job: keep the seat for you!
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  420. Dan

    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

  421. 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 consuming 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 Hour of time during which the energy is produced or consumed: in a nutshell, the two H stay for two completely different things, therefore they cannot be eliminated !!! The guy who wrote this bestiality not only has not a minimum knowledge of Physics, but also of Mathematics ( or, better, of elementary school Aritmetics) because not only has not understood what is the concept of energy, but also how the fractions work and when they can be reduced.
    So, if you want to be correct, please remember: the definition “1 kWh/h” is absolutely correct, and corresponds to a precise amount of energy ( 860 kcal, or 3526 kJ ) consumed or produced in one hour. When you write that you are consuming ( or producing) 1 kWh/h, you mean that every hour you are consuming or producing 3526 kJ. And please do not eliminate the h from the fraction!
    (He,he,he,he…)
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
    P.S. The guy who wrote these bestialities must be pardoned: he is a puppet paid to write bestialities and, as they say in Italy ” Pure lui tiene famiglia” ( he too has to feed his family )

  422. Patrick Ellul

    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.

  423. 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.

  424. 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

  425. 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.

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

  431. 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.

  432. 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

  433. 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.

  434. 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

  435. 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

  436. Andrea Rossi

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

  437. 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

  438. 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.

  439. 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

  440. 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.

  441. 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

  442. 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.
    Warm Regards,

  443. Jeff

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

  444. 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.

  449. 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

  450. 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,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Why will this be in important week for the QuarkX?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland:
    We have to make a test that should be conclusive for the first stage of the R&D, if positive.
    Warm Regards,

  453. 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

  454. 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.

  459. 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

  460. 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.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  465. 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

  466. Andrea Rossi

    Tom Conover:
    I know very well Tantalum.
    Thank you for the information.

  468. Jerrold Schmidt

    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.

    Dr Rossi:
    In the book “Ecat the new fire” of Vessela Nikolova there is a good part dedicated to your patent and technology for the conversion of wastes into fuel. Do you think in future you will return to develope also this technology?

  476. 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.

  481. Italo R.

    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/
    It is really enlightening!

    Healthy Regards

  487. Michel

    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)

    Michel

  493. Isaias

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    The QuarkX has very high temperatures, so that you had to develope a sophisticated method to measure them, am I correct ?
    Cheers,

  494. Andrea Rossi

    Isaias:
    You are correct, but the laws of Physics decisively are helping us.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  495. 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 .

  497. Lean Khensovan

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    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?

  498. Andrea Rossi

    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.

  501. 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

  502. 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,

  507. 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

  516. 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.

    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

  528. 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.

  529. Lindsey Harbour

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

    What a tragedy also in Italy this last night! My family lives far from where the earthquake had its epicenter, but that has been a tragedy for all the Italian People. I know my fellow Italians, though, they are resilient: they will overcome also this tragedy, as they always do.
    Thank you for your sympathy.

    try to combine Enshten theory and law of Keeps saved weight.(E=mc2). mass disappears and becomes energy. add to the several paradoxes and you get a black hole. Do you believe in it ?

  554. Andrea Rossi

    Edward:
    I did not hear this before: anyway, if true, I think is a mistake, because coal is a resource that can be exploited without harm for the environment if properly treated. There are BACTs that can allow to burn coal within the anti pollution requirements.

    Curiosity: how many miles per year do you flight ? And how many miles per year do you drive ?
    Cheers,

  559. Andrea Rossi

    Dwain Hargis:
    Flight: about 150 000 miles; drive: about 50 000 miles. Obviously not so during the 1 year test with the 1 MW E-Cat.

    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.

    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

  572. 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.

    Rodney Nicholson:

  574. 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

  575. 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

  591. 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.
    Happy Holidays !

  596. James Rovnak

    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

  597. 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.

  598. 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

  601. 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.

  613. Andrea Rossi

    George:
    Sorry for the late answer: yes, we resolved the problem.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  614. Bernie Koppenhofer

    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?

  615. Andrea Rossi

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

  618. Engineer48

    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?

  622. 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!

  623. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    Probably some foe will sugget me to go together with the QuarkX…
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  624. 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:

    Cheers,

  627. 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.

  633. 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!! :)

  634. 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.

    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

  642. Andrea Rossi

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

  649. 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

    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.

    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

  653. 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.

    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

  659. 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.

    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.

  671. Joseph Fine

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    In recent discussions, which have now become ‘heated’, you said some of the E-Cat energy was absorbed in endothermic reactions.

    Were these reactions only chemical in nature, or could some of these reactions be considered “endothermic nuclear reactions”? That is, the customer might have been interested in analyzing isotopes found in the ash. And some of these reaction products may have used up energy which did not become part of the thermal output.

    Can this question be discussed due to legal or contractual restrictions?

    Just wondering,

    Dear Andrea,

    This steam methane reformed plant idea seems to fit all the data we engineers have been able to put together from the various clues and bread crumbs we have been given.

    Just need the ECats superheated steam, some electricity, city water and city gas. No delivery trucks in or out as the waste and product both go up the shiny JMP pipe in the JMP proof of concept plant. Highly endothermic and very high embodied energy content. Using the very low cost ECat heat, this could really drop the cost to product Hydrogen.

    Are we getting warm?

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You stated…

    “Jackie: I swear on the Holy Bible that my E-Cat works as I have described, giving a clear output far above the input in line with a discovery outside of any process I have knowledge of.
    Dr Andrea Rossi, CEO of Leonardo Corporation.”

    I, for one, completely and whole heartedly believe that you are stating the God’s honest truth about the potential of combining nickel, lithium, and hydrogen under stimulation (heat and/or electromagnetic fields) to produce exothermic nuclear reactions. For starters, you have performed countless tests over the past several years — some private, some public, some with multiple qualified engineers and scientists as witnesses or participants. For each and every one of these tests to have been some sort of ridiculously improbable error in measurement or an as of yet undiscovered “chemical” reaction is absurd. Secondly, there have been many third party tests by replicators of the “Rossi Effect.” Many of them have yielded seemingly high levels of excess heat. Third, before you publicly came onto the Cold Fusion “scene” and announced your work, other individuals, such as Focardi, had produced excess heat from nickel and hydrogen.
    For these reasons I’m convinced the effect is real. Also, on a deep personal level I cannot articulate, I have a gut feeling or intuition that you would not have sacrificed so many years of your life, time with your wife, personal health, if not convinced of the validity of your work. What reward would that have yielded? You obviously are not living in luxury or a life of leisure. With your drive and work ethic, you could have spent all these years building up a business in a totally unrelated field and be retired by now, spending the last decades of your life on a tropical beach.

    Might I suggest this is a probable result.

    Normally the heat went into the product.
    Some of the heat went up the shiny pipe if in excess.
    Some of the heat was removed by the ceiling exhaust fan above the JMP plant, if in excess.
    There is an industrial process happening and the heat energy will be dealt with by the above standard industrial methods as applied by the industrial plant engineers that designed the temporary plant.
    .

  693. Rob

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I imagine that the JMP plant used the thermal energy for endothermic physical and/or chemical interactions, while the excess heat, if necessary, was removed by means of air and water, am I correct?

    ** A MESSAGE OF SUPPORT FROM VLADIMIR VYSOTSKII

    Now I want to support you in your fight “for RossI” against IH. I do not know Rossi and I am informed about his unusual character and complex biography. But in the given situation these do not count.
    I have already written and I believe that we all (i.e. the LENR community) are very obliged/grateful to Rossi that he alone has done a very significant part of our work. He has broken the wall of total persecution of LENR and of its mixing with dirt in the worst traditions of the Inquisition.He gave a new impetus to this scientific direction and now LENR is not mor in the underground.

    It can be a long chat about the efficiency of using different types of water meters and of different methods of analyzing the temperatures, however the experiments of Lugano and in part, Parkhomov’s experiments have put everything in place- and it is necessary to continue the work. The Djinnis out of the bottle and cannot be put back!

    And all these “attacks” on him by some businessmen and journalists paid by them – are “mosquito bites”; their hope either to save money or to return us all the oil and gas era-these will not work!

  706. Andrea Rossi

    Megan Bonnard:
    The intellectual honesty of the Russian scientist Vladimir Vysotskii is remarkable.

  709. Candice Bee Watson

    Dear Doctor Andrea Rossi,

    The endothermic process taking place on the customer’s side seems likely to have been highly efficient and compact — in that a great deal of thermal energy was absorbed by a relatively small amount of material. Knowing the security concerns you faced — not wanting dozens of individuals continually bringing raw chemicals in and finished product out — it was insightful of both you and the customer to choose such a process.

    A) Would it be reasonable to say that the final product was low volume yet high in embodied energy?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embodied_energy

    B) Was the embodied energy of the final product in reach of virgin aluminum? 155MJ p/ KG

    C) Do you expect that the E-Cat technology will in time, once fully developed, provide a benefit to the customer allowing them to manufacture their product more cost effectively than their competitors?

    D) How long do you believe it will be until the customer is ready to speak of the energy savings provided by your plant during the one year test — 1 year, 2 year, 5 year?

    A short quote for you: “a three cord string is not easily broken!”

  715. Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I understand that you cannot really respond in detail to the technical questions and legal issues in the current situation, but I have you to ask the ‘question of all questions’, which all members of the LENR community worldwide and also me as the moderator of the German section of lenr-forum.com interest most:

    Can you assure me personally that the ECAT works and do I have your word as a gentleman that both the Levi et.al Lugano Report, as well as the current 350 days ERV Report of Penon (self sustain mode, COP least 50) correspond to the truth?

    It’s not about mistrust, I would not be so engaged all these years, if I were not convinced of the LENR technology per se, but especially your device has the potential to change the world and I would be really grateful if you personally could answer me this question and I would feel much better if I had your word as a gentleman!

    Best regards and good luck
    Felix Rends

  716. Andrea Rossi

    Felix Rends:
    I have dedicated to this work the second part of my life and part of my health. I am no more the same of one year ago.
    About the Lugano Report: the test has not been made by me, nor has been the report and for the truth of it speaks the life of the nuclear physicists that made it, their honesty, their professional skill matured in two among the highest rated Universities and in the CERN of Geneva where all of them have worked. About the test of one year of the 1 MW Plant, the measurements have been made for one year by a nuclear engineer, who got his doctorate in nuclear engineering when he was 23 years old in the University of Bologna with 110/110 summa cum laude, then worked as a nuclear engineer in a nuclear power plant, then, taking advantage of such experience, became a professional specialized in certifications and validations of industrial plants and industrial products. He has been chosen, as proven by copious documents, in agreement between IH and us to make the ERV and he made it with all his professional skills and with the integrity that characterized all his life, that is immaculate under any point of view, as I investigated when I knew him because I had to choose a trusted professional to make the safety certification of my products years ago; he resulted to be the best in absolute among all his colleagues for preparation, honesty, confidentiality. This is also the reason why he has been chosen to make the ERV, in agreement between IH and us. By the way, IH has totally agreed upon his report released after 3 months of test, and has cited such report in interviews released by Tom Darden. Same thing happened after 6 months of test, when the second quarterly report has been released by the ERV, same thing again happened after 9 months, when the ERV released the third quarterly report: please note that during 9 months of the test IH repeatedly accompanied to visit the test their investors, explaining to them how the ERV was measuring the performance, showing the seals of the flowmeter, showing the temperature measurement system ( agreed upon directly between Mr Tom Darden and the ERV) and IH collected many million dollars of investments from Woodford after the officers of Woodford visited the test twice, during the first 9 months, and repeatedly accompanied Chinese top level investors and engineers to visit the test. The results of the first three quarterly reports, obviously, were substantially equal to the results of the fourth and final report, that IH now is renegating. Eventually, IH paid the first three quarterly reports, but did not pay the final one. The first three reports determined the allowance to IH of enormous investments and they loved them. The fourth report determined the obligation of IH to pay us and they discovered the results were wrong: what a strange coincidence.
    You have my honour word that what I wrote here is the truth.
    I totally sympathyze with you and with all the persons like you and also this is why I work like a beast, even now that is Saturday, as tomorrow Sunday, and always on this endevour..
    After all these years you merit to go in a shop and buy an E-Cat, damn !
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
    P.S.
    Let me add that both the tests of Lugano and Doral have been performed for long timespans, respectively 1 month and 1 year, with the obvious consequent considerations.

    I have worked on two nuclear stations with once-through boilers. Looking at a picture of the finned heat exchanger in the E-cat it seems to have the same characteristics :-
    1: water in at the bottom and superheated steam out of the top,
    2: no precise water level but a boiling zone, and
    3: no recirculation.
    Would I be correct in describing the finned heat exchanger as a once-through boiler and therefore the control system is based on the outlet steam pressure and temperature?

    My Best Wishes for the future and I voted 100% :-)

  720. Andrea Rossi

    GiveaDogaBone:
    The control system is more complex: if you GiveCataBone he will not be done with it.
    Thank you for your delighting sustain, the more important due to your nuclear plants experience.

    Dr. Rossi, Many years ago I tracked the first Satellite in the Global Positioning System. GPS.
    It was developed by the Wiz Kids at the US Navel Observatory, (USNO) in Washington DC.
    Back in them days, we did not call it GPS. We called it NavStar.
    It had on board an Atomic Clock, which is extremely accurate.
    They talk about losing one second in 300 million years.
    The Satellite would pass over Miami every 6 hours, and we would capture the data on a roll of paper, like they use on a Lie Detecter.
    They soon changed that, then we captured the data on an Audio Tape, which we sent over the phone to the USNO.
    The GPS has 24 Satellites in Orbit.

    What Time is it ?
    Who determines the Time ?
    It is the United States Navel Observatory.
    They do it by measuring God knows what in the Sky.

  727. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    When you say that the Customer “used the heat” does this mean that the manufacturing process was endothermic — i.e. the heat delivered by the E-Cat was absorbed in the customer’s production process.

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

  728. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    Yes.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  729. Candice Bee Watson

    Dear Doctor Rossi,

    If the 1MW of thermal power emitted from the ECAT reactors in the plant of the customer was used by the customer and not continually vented away, this seems to imply an endothermic process that trapped heat within the molecular structure of the chemical being produced.

    Can you confirm?

  730. Andrea Rossi

    Candice Bee Watson:
    Yes.

    “Since his youth, Einstein had been fascinated by this electromagnetic field which turned the rotors in the power stations built by his father, and he soon came to understand that gravity, like electricity, must be conveyed by a field as well: a “gravitational field” analogous to the “electrical field” must exist. He aimed at understanding how this gravitational field worked, and how it could be described with equations.”

    “And it is at this point that an extraordinary idea occurred to him, a stroke of pure genius: the gravitational field is not diffused through space; the gravitational field is that space itself. This is the idea of the theory of general relativity. Newton’s “space”, through which things move, and the “gravitational field” are one and the same.”

    Dear Andrea,
    we know, you are very busy and ‘in altre faccende affaccendato’ but, if possible, i would like to submit a request for you:
    i am trying to explain Einstein Relativity Theory concepts to my 15 and 17 years old sons and I am encountering many difficulties,
    i am not able to find easy concepts and examples to use for this, especially for light velocity and time travel.
    My opinion is that you are the best on teaching things like this with a natural predisposition.
    If you want, if you have time and within next months, may you write few lines to explain it to a middle level school students!
    It will be very nice, if you can’t don’t worry.
    Thanks in advance, Giuseppe

  736. Andrea Rossi

    Giuseppe:
    To explain with simplicity, without mathematics and good bases of Physics, the Special and General Relativity is like to cross the ocean in winter with a canoe.
    In a nutshell, Special Relativity is expressed by the equation
    E = mc^2
    which means that the energy “contained” in matter is equal to its mass multiplied by the square of the speed of light.
    The General Relativity can be expressed with this statement: an acceleration cannot be distinguished locally from the effects of a gravitational field, so that the inertial mass is equal to the gravitational mass.
    Models that can make easier to understand can be found in Italian language googling here:
    “La teoria della relativita’ in parole semplici”
    In English: Google “Einstein Theory of Relativity: a simplified explanation”

  737. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Some new pictures of the Doral factory have been posted in the court docket. IH alleges in their countercomplaint that due to lack of ventilation, no one would have been able to work in the building because if 1MW of heat was produced by your plant?

    Are you able to respond to this?

    Many thanks,

    Frank Acland

  738. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    1 The heat was used, not vented away from the Customer
    2 There was a ventilation system, to exhaust when necessary the heat excess, that has not been taken in the photo.
    Nevertheless I must confess that these amendments have remarkably improved the former countercomplaints, completing their cultural reach: before they were comic, now they are tragicomic.
    Obviously we will respond in Court with due evidence.

    Dear Andrea,

    Pardon my curiosity:
    1) can you now tell us what sort of operations you were doing on the 1MW plant every day at midnight?

    2) Did you stop and restart the plant at the end of each day (after reaching the target flow) to do some maintenance?

    Wishing you good luck on your upcoming projects!

    Sebastian

  744. Andrea Rossi

    Dear Andrea,
    On E-catWorld you will find a Poll, to vote how commercially viable the E-cat technology is percieved.
    http://www.e-catworld.com/2016/08/10/ecw-poll-your-thoughts-on-the-e-cat-as-a-commercially-viable-technology/
    Now more than 550 people have voted and if you analyse the results you will find that about 55% of the voters on this very pro LENR site think your E-cat is commercially viable.
    I believe that this is a relatively low percentage for this site and that the reason can be found in the fact that a large percentage of the voters think the E-cat has not been sufficiently and independently tested. To open a large scale market an independent Black Box test of a plant by a world leader test company would be the best route for a quick commercialization.
    Some questions:
    1. Do you agree? (If not why not?)
    2. Do you have the intentions to do this?
    3. Do you have any idea when this can be done? (2016, 2017, 2018)
    Thanks for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  746. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    At the dawn of the computer era only a small percentage of the persons thought that personal computers were going to become a product: most gurus of cybernetics thought that to bring computers to households was a ridiculous idea. To change the game have not been tests, but products in the market.
    The tests we made have been sound, honest and made by experts and further testing will just be a loss of time for us and a mine of information for the competition. My goal is not to have high rate polls, because I have not to be elected on the basis of what I say or show, as a politician, I have to sell products. What I need are products, not papers at this point. The sole tests that are useful, at this point, are tests that we can make with full knowledge of what happens inside the reactors, to consolidate the technology in this R&D phase, not tests with black boxes to raise the polls positively. We already achieved the goal to be able to commercialize the industrial plants, albeit still in a pioneer-market context and are close to expand the industrial market for such industrial plants.
    The answer to your question can be synthesized as follows: once our products will be in the market, everybody will be able to buy them and make all the tests he wants.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
    P.S.
    By the way, I am very surprised that on EW we got 55% positive: I thought that the positive expectation, after all the stupidities put around, could not be more than 10%, he,he,he.

  747. Tom Conover

    Hello Andrea,

    Thank you for your encouragement on the blog to use Lithium-7Li fluoride and resume my experiments. My logs show that my last runs were in September of 2015, but I am less than 10 days from starting a new series of experiments during the upcoming several weeks. My new platform in fact is being tested on the bench as I write this, and the fuel charges have been prepared with the utmost precision by my associate using stainless steel and laser welding for the seals.

    I also have a new fuel cell design to test after the the current SS fuel cartridges are tested, one made entirely of Alumina 99.96, that uses solid rod for the end caps that allows only .001″ gap that is sealed with Secar 71 Calcium Aluminate Cement, and also allows me to insert a 32 gauge nichrome anode and cathode connection wire at both ends. My associate pressure tested the sealing method, and it tested at the maximum pressure his equipment was setup to handle for this type of design, and was tested at 120 lbs of pressure without any leakage. I found that very exciting, perhaps I may discover some electricity with this particular fuel cell model.

    The preparation for the court trial seems to be progressing with more candor and progress than the manufacturing. The comments in the blog seem to have dwindled to a trickle, perhaps the only replies that remain are given are F7, F8, and F9.

    F7 perhaps now needs to be added: “This does not depend on us” and in the case of certification, it has not been disclosed whom it does depend upon, even though you mention you have explained it many times in the blog. I’ve tried to find it in the blog as far back as March 3rd, 2010.

    Conjecture implies that one of your partners requires that industrial units must be massed produced before home units. If that is true, why can’t you just say that please? F7. The energy sources must be integrated before the home units are released. This could take several years to achieve.

    We still look forward to that important news release, originally scheduled for June of 2016, perhaps now delayed until two thousand something.

    When will the home unit certification process complete? answer: F7
    When will the plant in Sweden begin manufacturing? answer: F8
    Why do you use the function keys to answer inquiries? answer: F9

    For those that need a reminder of definitions, here they are:
    F7: This does not depend on us
    F8: I can not disclose
    F9: I must add that the results could be either positive or negative.

    Your work is very important for the future on earth, thank you for your continued efforts. I hope you work out the problems to build it as soon as possible.

    Dear Doctor Andrea Rossi,

    Despite any other of the current issues being discussed, to you not find it almost inconceivable and beyond belief that the “other party” claims to be incapable of replicating the Rossi Effect while multiple third parties have reported doing so despite:

    – Having your personal assistance and teaching.
    – Your unpublished patent application describing the catalyzers and special techniques.
    – A vast treasure of wealth to support testing.

    Parkhomov and Jiang are only two names of competent, intelligent experts “skilled in the art” that immediately come to mind. They both have not only achieved high excess heat but continued “heat after death.” An hour of searching could yield several other parties and a half dozen other scientists/engineers that have made similar claims.

    Yet the “other party” claims to be unable to document a single watt of excess heat in their own testing?

    This sounds implausible.

    How many third party replications do you think must accumulate before they admit to producing excess heat themselves?

    How much of a benefit do you think having access to your full “know how” would have given them over other parties that only know of the basic reaction utilizing nickel powder and lithium aluminate?

    Does such a benefit make their claims look unreasonable to you?

    The blessing “may you live in interesting times” has been used upon myself many times. I think you received them all.

    Best Regards To You and Your Family,

  759. Lindsay Meadows

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    There is around a puppet of IH saying that the flowmeter of the E-CAT 1 year test worked only half full of water so that the measure was wrong. You explained already many times here that the flowmeter has been installed by the ERV and not by you and also that the ERV, an expert of the matter, has obviously installed the flowmeter in a position lower than the water arrival point and lower than the delivery point, so that the flowmeter was at the bottom of a “U”, which granted the flowmeter itself to be always full of water.
    Can you comment ?

    Dear Andrea,

    Interesting sequence of events.

    IH was formed 24 October, 2012.
    Rossi visits Cherokee on 26 October to ink the deal with Cherokee that he and Darden had hammered out.

    Rossi negotiates with Darden / Cherokee and expects to sign the License Agreement with Cherokee. But unknown to Rossi, IH was created by Darden 2 days before the signing and when Rossi arrives at Cherokee to ink the deal, guess what, he is told by Darden that he now must ink a deal with a totally new clean skin startup, IH, which did not exist 3 days prior. Obviously from the complaint, Rossi never negotiated with nor knew about IH prior to Darden springing it on a unsuspecting and obviously excited Rossi. Well excited until the switcheroo was pulled.

    Had that been me and based on my experience when someone does this at inking time, it is time to walk for at least a week and consider if you can now trust those that just tried to screw you with a last minute alteration in the deal. In this case it was a very MAJOR alteration.

    Not nice Tom Darden. Not nice at all. But as some say what you give out one day may come back to bite your butt another day. BTW Italians have very long memories and never forgive someone who takes advantage of them.

    Cui nun voli pagari, s’assuggetta ad ogni pattu.

  772. Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,

    Reading these accusations and conspiracies against you and the ERV, claiming the 1MW plant had not delivered as agreed, appears to be a sign of desperation. By the end of this year hopefully Leonardo will have installed new 1MW plants. If so it will be interesting how IH and its attack dogs’ respond to the customers’ satisfaction after six months of operation. The electric bill will be cut less than 1/10th of their previous year’s payments. How could they possibly justify their fraudulent claims with the customer’s proof of a 50 COP without the intermediary step of the 1MW plant test?
    Are you still on course for 1MW installations this year?
    Warm regards.
    Brokeeper

  773. Andrea Rossi

    Brokeeper:
    Thank you for your insight.
    Warm Regards,

  774. Louis

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    After reading the countercomplaints of IH, it’s clear they have not a single proof against you, but only assumptions. By the way, about the customer: what’s the point ? The agreement signed between you and IH says that the test had to measure the energy produced by the E-Cat and its COP, didn’t even talk of any customer. To measure the energy and the COP the measurement is made on the E-Cat, independently from what the customer does and whom the customer is.
    If all IH got is that, you already won.
    Cheers,
    Louis

  775. Andrea Rossi

    Louis:
    You are right.

  778. Antonio

    Dear Andrea,
    the reading of the 66 pages of the Counter-Plaintiffs offers many moments of real fun. IH launches insults and completely groundless accusations, like these:
    “Leonardo and Rossi manipulated the testing process”; “…manipulating, along with Fabiani, the operation of the Plant and the reports of the Plant’s purported operations, to make it appear that the Plant was producing a COP far greater than 10.0”; “…enlisting Penon to produce a false report”; “JMP started sending falsified invoices to Industrial Heat”; “Leonardo, Rossi, JMP, and Johnson also restricted access to the JMP area at the Doral location, claiming that there was a secretive manufacturing process being conducted there, when in fact it was simply recycling steam from the Plant and sending it back to the Plant as water”
    But where is the evidence? How can you accuse someone without showing evidence of his guilt?
    IH tries to seem naive and says “we have been cheated for years without realizing it”. Certainly they are trying to make themselves look like idiots, because stupidity is not a crime. But in their long period of candid innocence they have raised millions of dollars convincing other investors about the quality of their business.
    For example, from the beginning IH felt that the test did not conform with the contract: “…that testing began well over one year after the Guaranteed Performance period commenced under the License Agreement – making it impossible for the Plant to achieve Guaranteed Performance during the time period required by the License Agreement”. If the test did not conform with the contract, IH already knew from the very first days that they would not have to pay for it. But they allowed that the test was carried out regularly, in order to have something to show to investors. Attitude very unfair.
    And only after beginning to collect money from investors they have also started to bother checking if their investment was solid: “Eventually Counter-Plaintiffs discovered that the test that Leonardo and Rossi were conducting, in conjunction with the supposed “customer” in Miami, was not a real test at all”.
    And they say:
    “In mid-2015, Industrial Heat hired Joseph Murray (“Murray”) to serve as Vice President of Engineering, and empowered him to assemble a team of engineers and scientists to elevate the level of Industrial Heat’s testing and evaluation of LENR technology. Among other things, one of the projects undertaken by that team was rigorous testing of the E-Cat IP.”
    The team of engineers and scientists should have been assembled from the very first days! Why they waited until July 2015 to introduce Mr Murray to you and try to make him visit the plant if the test began at the first months of 2015? In the meantime they kept on collect money even if they suspected that you was a cheater?
    Moreover IH has been very unfair on several occasions. For example, it has proposed a major change of their agreements during the setting up of the Validation Test day, when you was supposedly committed to operate its reactor: “On that same date – April 29, 2013 – , Industrial Heat and IPH executed an Assignment and Assumption of License Agreement (the “Assignment and Assumption”), wherein Industrial Heat assigned its rights under the License Agreement to IPH”.

    I think that you will win against them because they really have nothing.

    Yes, because they did not produce any evidence of what they said and made terrible slanders of which they now have to answer in Court. The amusement comes specifically from several points of their countercomplaints that, believe me, are really funny. Obviously I cannot anticipate here what we are going to bring in Court.

    Dear Andrea Rossi
    How is yur relationship with Hydrofusion after the publication of the IH’s countercomplaints ?

  789. Andrea Rossi

    Eb:
    Never been better than now. We are a Team and a united family, working together to make in Sweden our European pole. We had this morning an important meeting on Skype focused on that: we also talked of the countercomplaints of IH for a minute, but did not have much time for it, leaving space to the important things we are doing.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Will your party make counter complaints against the countercomplaints of IH ?
    Cheers

  791. Andrea Rossi

    Anonymous:
    Nooooo! The countercomplaints of IH are a gold mine: the evidence born by them is the total lack of evidence against us. We will analyze them, line by line, in Court. It will be fun, believe me. Some important passages are literally comic, as it will turn out when we will bring our evidences.
    Warm Regards,

  794. JP Renoir

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    I have just finished to read the 66 pages of the countercomplaints of IH, but they are just making assumption on the base of which make slanders. They did not bring on a single proof of what they say, just shoot accusations. Anyway: is there at least one accusation you consider dangerous or sustainable ?
    Cheers,
    JPR

  795. Andrea Rossi

    JP Renoir:
    Honestly, there is not a single and I repeat a single point in all the 66 pages that we will not be able to cancel with due evidence in Court. I repeat: these 66 pages are a gold mine, because in all their points they give evidence of the vicious falsity of our foe; sometimes such falsity assumes comic aspects, as we’ll see in due time, in due place. They are not ashamed to slander persons with the goal to avoid to have to pay.
    By the way, to understand the way to do things of these guys, go to read on this blog the links in the comment of

  796. Patrick Ellul

    Dear Andrea,
    In a world of science and law, without proof or witness, no one will believe that the customer plant was making real use of the heat.
    If this becomes an issue in court, will you be able to exhibit proof or witness of what the customer was using the heat for?
    Best regards

  797. Andrea Rossi

    Patrick Ellul:
    Obviously.
    Talking of proof and witness: in all the 66 pages of the countercomplaints there is not a single countercomplaint of which we will not be able to give evidence of its total falsity.
    The slanders that compound the substance of all the 66 pages will be duly processed by our Attorney.
    Obviously, I cannot enter in particulars and answer to issues to be discussed in Court.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea:
    I bet in this moment you are working on your QuarkX, while Darden and his mobsters are celebrating their stinky countercomplaints in the luxury yacht of Darden.
    Cherokee Fund Partners have stolen, together with Woodford, an enormous amount of money to their investors and try to exit elegantly from this robbery slandering a perfectly honest man as the ERV Dr Fabio Penon, Eng. Fulvio Fabiani, who helped them for one year, you, who lost your health working 16-18 hours per day in a plant for a test agreed with them in perfect accordance with the agreement they signed.
    Do not give up, at any cost, because you are going to win.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    The countercomplaints of IH has teached to all of us how to make a fraud:
    First: buy something you want not to pay
    Second: get it
    Third: do not pay the invoice you receive for it
    Fourth: make a complaint that the seller made a conspiracy against you
    Genial!
    Please win against IH to make all of us happy,
    Cheers,

    Any comment ?

    Dear Andrea,
    I hope you are not being too much distracted of your great work on Ecats by this lawsuit. From your reaction in this blog I have the impression that you are being not impressed about their counterclaim and that is excellent!
    Obviously is the best way to prove that IH is taking nonsense and their claiming is rubbish by showing working devices at satisfied customers, so I hope that will happen soon. So stay cool and roll them out to the market. Good luck!
    Kind regards, Gerard McEk

  812. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    Thank you for your insight.
    I am still working all the same time on my E-Cats, do not worry. Just stealing time to other things to work with my Attorney, but, as you correctly say, I am not too much impressed by paper tigers. We have solid evidence to contrast slanders and lies. In Court.
    Warm Regards,

  813. Dorian Basali

    Mr Andrea Rossi:
    The most funny part of the counterclaims deposited by IH is the fact that they say they collected 50 millions from the investors because of in their IP there were technologies alternative to yours.
    Is there out in the world anybody enough stupid to believe this ?
    How much paid in real money IH to buy that library of empty boxes ? How is the worth of their shares after they lost your license ?
    It seems to me that you are going to destroy them in Court.
    I understand it is hard time for you, because you have to fight against them while you are working hard on the E-Cat, but you are gonna win.
    Never give up !

    Do not worry of the stinking countercomplaints of IH: everybody not stupid has understood they attacked all the possible witnesses in your favour because they have no evidence against you.

    “non ti curar di lor, ma guarda e passa”: History will say they have been thieves and that you made an important invention.
    As an attorney, I never have seen counterclaims worse than the ones IH deposited, with heavy accusations against persons with an immaculate past, without any evidence to sustain them but assumptions.
    If that is all they got, you will prevail: what counts in Court is only the evidence related to the issues specified in the Agreement and they have none.
    Thank you for your immense effort.

  827. Andrea Rossi

    Landon:
    I am not very much impressed by 60+ pages of accusations based on assumptions. My Attorney and I are preparing our reaction and, honestly, as powerful as our foe might be, I do not fear paper tigers. I fully trust the American Justice and am sure that the evidence we will carry in Court is very solid.
    Obviously, I cannot treat here issues that have to be discussed in Court.
    Warm Regards,

  828. Jill

    Dear Andrea:
    The counterclaims of IH are ridiculous.
    They say that the test was fake, that everything was fake, but they paid the reports made by the ERV in the first three quarters during which made their investors visit the plant while it was tested and collected 50 millions from Woodward. They stink.
    IH has got refused its motion to escape and now is inventing slanders to find an excuse not to pay their debt.
    By the way, Cherokee Fund is not new to frauds: see all the links below from the New York Times and other official sources about the frauds made by Tom Darden and Cherokee Fund Partners:
    http://www.nytimes.com/2005/10/30/nyregion/anatomy-of-a-deal-new-jersey-style.html

    I am sure you and your attorney will bring in Court all the evidence necessary to proof their dishonesty.
    I hope all this will not obstruct your work on the E-Cat.
    Godspeed,
    Jill

  829. Andrea Rossi

    Jill:
    Thank you for your insight and for the links.
    As a matter of fact, I am spending a lot of time together with my Attorney to collect all the evidence to destroy the slanders. It is not difficult, but takes time that I’d prefer to spend in my factory. But a war is a war and we gotta do it.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  830. Linus

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    The most humoristic part of the counterclaims of IH is where they say that they got the millions from Woodford and other investors not because of your IP, but for the other technologies they bought. But if you make a due diligence, you discover that what they got other than your IP is just a series of empty boxes, paid few hundred thousand dollars, plus shares of IH that are worth nothing, while IH collected more that 100 millions to buy your IP that is related to all the strong story of your work, your patents, your plants, the multiple tests made by third independent parties…and a real agreement they made with you and that certainly has been shown to their investors to justify the hundreds millions IH got from them. They are veritable fraudsters, this is what emerges reading the papers.
    Never give up !

    All my sympathy for your litigation against the slanders of Industrial Heat. They are rich and powerful, but everybody reading their counterclaims understood that they lie. They have used you to make money from their investors and then tried to discharge you. They stink, but you will win, because all their bullshit will not resist in Court. From all the papers deposited so far it is clear that your assessments are based on solid evidence, theirs are based on slanders.
    We are all with you.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    What do you think of the counterclaims made by IH deposited today ? It seems to me that they shoot at their feet, because they collected millions of dollars based on the reports made by the ERV during the first nine months of the test ! I think they made heavy slanders, you should not have difficulty to defend your position.
    How do you comment ?
    Jeff

    The Rossi Effect: Beyond the MUD and the FUD

    By Hank Mills

    Various combinations of nickel, lithium, and hydrogen can be combined to produce massive excess heat beyond any possible chemical reaction: in my personal opinion, enough evidence has been provided to substantiate this statement beyond a reasonable doubt. Although this phenomenon — the “Rossi Effect” — is not yet always repeatable, the diverse array of replications that have taken place scream loudly that it is a reality. The number of individuals who have claimed to produce excess heat continues to grow. However, a legal war that has spilled over onto the internet threatens to distract observers and interested parties from further experimentation. Due to the focus on the conflict rather than the technology, the open dissemination of the critical parameters needed to allow for “guaranteed to work” replications may be delayed.

    For mainstream science to consider a controversial technology to be real, there must be a set of precise instructions that allow for replication of the effect. A scientist must be able to use materials “A” within certain parameters “B” under certain conditions “C” to get the expected result that is far beyond the margin of error “D.” We don’t have such a formula for the Rossi Effect. Multiple researchers seem to have produced high levels of excess heat; a few of them have seemingly been able to do so repeatedly. But not a single individual has offered an instruction sheet which — if followed in excruciating detail — would offer an ultra high success rate.

    Researchers who have successfully replicated the E-Cat have shared a good bit of information; for example, Alexander Parkhmov, N. Stepanov, Songsheng Jiang, and others have published in depth test reports. These accounts provide many tips and suggestions that could potentially assist individuals working to validate the Rossi Effect. But so far these papers fail to explain why some individuals obtain excess heat on the first attempt, and others don’t seem to produce a single watt after dozens of runs.

    This continuous enigma is what prevents the “Rossi Effect” from becoming the number one top news story. The ability to produce this phenomenon ON DEMAND at HIGH POWER would rattle our civilization in a way we cannot imagine. Literally, this combination of common and almost inexhaustible elements would represent a source of energy orders of magnitude ahead of any competitor. With a possible power density of 1000 watts (or higher) per gram of fuel, photo-voltaic and wind technologies would be destroyed. A massive shift would begin taking us away from expensive conventional “renewable” energy towards dirt cheap nuclear power. The human thirst for energy would finally be quenched. If not forever, at least for hundreds of years.
    But humans like scandal, intrigue, gossip, and innuendo. The current battle between Industrial Heat and Andrea Rossi has brought out the worst in many otherwise intelligent and decent individuals, providing soap opera like entertainment to some and a sad tragedy to others. With so little factual information out in the open — completely vetted in order to be free of “spin” — there is no rational way to come to an absolute conclusion about the issues being fought over. Most specifically, the performance of the one megawatt plant. But this hasn’t stopped forum users and bloggers from choosing a side, making derogatory statements about the other, and proclaiming their opinion as God’s truth without the hard data required to do so.

    I will openly and without reservation state that I feel it is a virtual certainty that the E-Cat is indeed real. To be clear, I’m not an engineer or a professionally trained scientist by any stretch of the imagination, so you can take my opinion with a grain of salt if you so desire. But I’ve read and been told of too many experiments — both those conducted by Rossi and by third parties — that produced high levels of excess heat beyond any possible chemical reaction to believe that they are all examples of sloppy measurement, exotic chemical reactions, or outright hoaxing. For starters, there are accounts of self sustained reactions and meltdowns, occurring after input has been switched off, that eliminate the need for the most sophisticated and precise measurement systems. Next, the quantities of heat produced overtime far exceed (sometimes by orders of magnitude) what could be generated if the grams of Ni and LiAlH4 had been replaced with thermite (iron oxide and aluminum), ignited inside of the reactor, and burned with 100% efficiency over an extended period of time. There is just no chemical fuel that comes near to the energy densities reported. Finally, the seemingly most successful replications have came from highly qualified, well educated individuals with ties to academia or scientific research. These individuals — separated sometimes by thousands of miles — would have little to no rational reason to intentionally exaggerate or lie.

    When it comes to the one year test of the one megawatt plant, I can only state that I expect it produced some level of excess heat — due to the fact so many other tests of Ni-Li-H systems have done so. But I will not say much more, because I do not have access to the ERV report. And, to be honest, I don’t care to dwell on the topic. The fact is that right now “hot cat” reactors, capable of operating at temperatures far higher than those in the shipping container locked up in Doral, Florida, can be built by third parties.

    Procure a suitable reactor core, add a tenth of a gram of LiAlH4, add nine tenths of a gram of nickel powder, wrap it with a suitable resistor like Kanthal A1, seal the ends adequately, protect the heating element from oxidation, heat the whole unit up to 1200-1300C, and apply whatever wave forms you desire (perhaps square waves): you have a chance to see massive excess heat and even self sustain for minutes to hours after turning off the input. But there is no guarantee of success. You may have to try repeatedly, use different brands of fuel, vary the ratio of empty space, perform some pre-cleaning on the nickel to remove oxidation, or even add some supplemental hydrogen. But the number of successful tests so far indicate that with enough effort you will eventually find excess heat.

    What we as a loosely knit, sometimes disfunctional, and sometimes cut-throat community need to do is figure out how to avoid all the trial and error required to produce the effect. Forget about the legal battle, stop reading the posts by extremists on both sides, and don’t look at the updates on the court docket; instead, do whatever you can to encourage, assist, and provide support for replicators who pledge to openly share their results and discoveries.

    My hope — as I’ve already stated multiple times — is for a formula to be made available that will allow for the “Rossi Effect” to be replicated by any qualified individual who is willing to abide by specific guidelines: with the purpose of forcing this technology to be accepted as real by the mainstream world. This can happen regardless of the less than flattering information that will most likely come out about BOTH Leonardo Corporation and Industrial Heat.

    Let’s get real: no one is perfect. Consider the candidates running for President of the United States. I would be willing to wager, if I were a gambler, that the vast majority of Republicans and Democrats see major flaws in their nominee. Even if they would be hesitant to speak openly about such issues, they observe them and are not oblivious to reality. I expect the same is true about Industrial Heat, Leonardo Corporation, and the individuals who operate both of these entities. When the court case comes to an end, unless a settlement is reached, I don’t think either party will walk away wearing a white suit without a spec of dust, so to speak. So arguing about who is the right and who is in the wrong is for the most part pointless.

    Conversely, focusing on coming up with a working recipe is not. The moment a recipe, backed up by multiple successful tests by different parties, is released, the grip that has been keeping most of the world ignorant will be released. An impossible snake-oil fantasy will have became hard fact: indisputable even to the most zealous cynics.

    So let’s keep focused in the days, weeks, and months to come. Don’t get caught up in the mud slinging that is bound to intensify as the legal battle heats up. Expect ahead of time that whichever “side” you feel more drawn towards is probably going to be revealed as totally less than spotless and unblemished, and remember that the technology is what really matters. I’d suggest keeping these three themes present in your mind.

    – Continual Testing to determine the critical parameters needed to trigger the effect.
    – Absolute Openness in sharing the knowledge about these critical parameters.
    – Non-participation in conflicts, arguments, and wars that are only distractions.

    We C-A-N move this technology forward if we focus on the above. When I get caught up in emotion, frustrated with the statements of muckrakers on various forums, I like to think about what’s possible with an energy source like the E-Cat. The wonders that come to mind help keep me focused, because they could lead to a technologically advanced world with far less suffering that I’d be proud to live in.

    Earth doesn’t have to remain a hell-planet and humanity a technologically retarded species unless we let ourselves get distracted. We are closer than I think most people realize to “cracking” the E-Cat. Let’s move forward by celebrating those who are performing open experimentation, and renouncing those who seek to slow progress and conceal information that could help fellow replicators. And, for goodness sakes, if you are holding onto unreported test results — positive or negative — please publish them immediately. The data could help us reach the point of having a “formula” days, weeks, or months sooner.

  870. Tuder

    Ave Doctor,
    here are some numbers on what could be the global market potential for the E-cat (source: IEA Energy Technology Perspectives 2016 online data).
    Year: 2020
    Heat demand in industry: 5.5 EJ
    Space heating demand: 44.7 EJ
    Space cooling demand: 7.2 EJ
    Assuming 50% of the space & cooling demand is centralized (need still to find data on the shares of centralized vs. individual heating & cooling systems in buildings) then the total market potential for the first wave of e-cat plans (targeting the market niches of heat for industry and for centralized heating and cooling) would be 32 EJ (about 9,000 TWh), equivalent to 8% of global final energy demand estimated for 2020.
    That’s a lot to begin with!

  871. Andrea Rossi

    Tuder:
    Thank you for your insight, but we must consider that such market must be served by an integrated system of energy sources.
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  875. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for the answer regarding Sweden — does this mean you have made progress in securing a factory location there?

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

  876. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    Has your production started in one country only, or in more than one location? (you have mentioned you would have production in the USA and Sweden)

    Thank you,

  880. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    About a year ago, I came across a paper describing a comparison of different samples of LiAlH4 from varying suppliers, companies, etc. Tests were performed to determine purity, particle size, and hydrogen content. The result was that all of these varied wildly from sample to sample.

    On a scale of one to ten, can you give an indication of the importance of using absolutely pristine LiAlH4 with minimal or no contaminants from either exposure to atmosphere or the manufacturing process?

    Thank you.

    Sincerely,
    Hank

  881. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    Obviously purity is fundamental when you have to make a compound. You need to know what you are dealing with, the more, the better.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  882. JP Renoir

    Dear Andrea
    Do you use centrifugal force in your reactors ?
    Cheers,
    JPR

  883. Andrea Rossi

    JP Renoir:
    “Centrifugal Force” does not exist in Physics. There is no force that can be defined centrifugal force. It is a wrong way to refer to inertia, which is the resistance to change in motion, but this is not a force.

    Thank you if you can answer,
    Vicente

  888. Andrea Rossi

    Vicente Shehata:
    Several Celsius degrees above the room temperature. Their plant was thermally insulated.

    Your enemies are continuing to repeat the same things even if you responded them in a clear and convincing way. They are not trying to find the truth, but only to repeat lies to exhaustion to make them true. In the blogosphere opinion you already won.
    Cheers,

    Johnnie Dannels:
    I agree: it is like they have a spot of some bad drink they have to sell at any cost ( the drink, not the spot) repeating the message for ever even if everybody knows the drink is not good. Somebody said ” any product can be sold, spending enough money to sell it”.

  899. Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    You say that ‘production has started’ on the 1 MW E-Cat Plants. Congratulations! Some questions if you don’t mind.
    1. These are low-temperature E-Cat plants?
    2. The design has been finalized for these plants?
    3. How many plants are currently ordered?
    4. Can you build more than one at a time?
    5. When do you expect the first of these plants will be completed?
    6. When do you expect the frist of these plants will be installed?
    7. How many workers are involved in building these plants?
    8. Are you personally involved in production process, or have you delegated this task to others?

    Thank you,

    Frank Acland

  900. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    1- yes, so far
    2- not exclusively
    3- confidential
    4- yes
    5- I prefer to reserve the answer
    6- I will give information of it when it will be working
    7- enough
    8- I am personally involved
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  901. Susan Cordasco

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    Did Industrial Heat have access to the part of the factory where was the plant of the customer ? Did IH make any measurement of temperature in the area or with the plant of the customer ? Can you answer or this is information restricted ?

  902. Andrea Rossi

    Susan Cordasco:
    Absolutely not. Nobody of IH has ever entered the area in which was the plant of the Customer, based on an agreement signed by IH and the Customer , on the base of which both parties were engaged not to enter in the respective areas. Between the two areas there was a wall that has never been violated by IH. I know this because such agreement has been signed also by me, as the responsible of the safety of the E-Cat area.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  903. Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    Can you tell us something on the progress on the theory which you are developing together with Professor Cook:
    1. Do you think that it can be fully explained with the existing physics?
    2. Does quantum physics play a major role?
    3. You told me that you are checking the theory with the QuarkX’s. Are you satisfied with the results till now?
    4. Are there still some doubts in the theory or unexplained aspects of the QuarkX’s?
    5. When you are sure that the theory can fully explain the LENR process of the QuarkX, will you then immediately publish the theory?
    6. If 5 = no, where does publication then have to wait for?
    7. Can you give us an idea about when you hope to publish the Theory?
    8. Is it likely that the publication of the Theory and a public demo of a QuarkX are done on the same day?
    Thank you for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  904. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    1- yes
    2- yes
    3- yes
    4- there are always doubts in every theory. Otherwise it should not be a “theory”, but a “law”
    5- maybe
    6- n.a.
    7- not yet
    8- I do not know.

  907. Gherardo

    Dott-Rossi,
    I did read that industrial production of the e-cat has started.
    Assuming the e-cat is a black box, what are the “interfaces” to the world?
    I mean, if I have to prepare my plant for it, I’d need to know some basic informations like:
    1) modularity of the e-cat
    2) thermal power output (range)
    3) maximum electric power input
    4) dimensions of installation area
    5) water pipes diameter / pressure in / out
    6) internet access?
    7) …
    More can be needed, but you got me.
    Is that interface schema available?
    Could you publish it?
    Thanks, Gherardo

  908. Andrea Rossi

    Gherardo:
    On our website
    http://www.leonardocorporation.com
    you will find all the data we can diffuse. Further data are restricted to the Customers, so far.

    Dear Andrea,
    your answer to Scott Kevin:
    I confirm the production is started.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
    I think it is anyway a milestone for you and for us, your followers.
    It is something we were waiting from 2011 and now you can be proud of what you achieved, your dream now is real, you started the production of a device that can change the world.
    God bless you, Auguri, Giuseppe

    Dear Andrea:
    Can you explain the situation and the next moves in the litigation on course between you and IH ?
    In the blogs there are many contradictory assumptions, can you make the situation more understandable ?
    Thank you if you can answer,

  914. Andrea Rossi

    A.:
    My Attorney has ordered me mandatorily not to talk on the blogs or anywhere else about issues that have to be properly discussed in Court.

  916. Bill

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Apart the E-Cat, what is the most efficient energy system you know ?
    Just a curiosity.
    Bill

  917. Andrea Rossi

    Bill:
    I don’t know about the others, but I can answer that a man on a bicycle is one of the most efficient existing systems.
    The Joules consumed per km by a man on a bicycle are very few: a normal guy consumes about 900 kJoules/h at the average speed of 10 km/h. Obviously efficiency has nothing to do with power.
    Warm Regards,

  922. Umbi

    Domestic e-cat ? When ?

  923. Andrea Rossi

    Umbi:
    Certification in progress, time not depending on us. Besides, the domestic E-Cat will be put in the market only after we will be able to make a massive production of it. I already explained the reasons on this blog.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  924. Brokeeper

    Dear Andrea,

    Hopefully you will be free to answer these questions:
    Is Leonardo Corporation still in partnership with Ampenergo (AEG) or is this in contingent with the court’s outcome?
    If so, are they allowed to scout out and sell to new customers for the latest industrial 1MW E-Cat plants?
    How is the 1MW plant production progress?
    Will you be fulfilling first the three 1MW plant orders for the previous 1 year test customer?
    With much respect,
    Brokeeper

  925. Andrea Rossi

    Brokeeper:
    We do not have anymore any relationship with Ampenergo since the day in which the Agreement with IH has been signed, as you can read from the same Agreement that has been published after its disclosing in our complaints in Court.
    Our work on the 1 MW E-Cats is going on.

    Andrea Rossi, Al,

    I think ‘unvalicable’ means insurmountable and is from the Italian verb Valicare.

    https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/valicare#Italian

    Etymology

    From Latin vāricāre, present active infinitive of vāricō, from vāricus. Cf. also the doublet varcare.
    Verb

    valicare

    To cross (a range of mountains etc)
    To overcome, surmount
    To switch over
    To transgress

    Derived terms

    valicabile
    valicabilità
    valicatore

    Just a good guess.

    Best regards,

  938. Megan Bonnard

    Dr Rossi,

    .. not sure you have seen this post by Biz Journal in North Carolina but titled:

    E-cat suit moves forward against Raleigh investors.

    My question is .. Why if, as Weaver and Darden claim, that IH never measured any excess heat,
    have they collected millions from investors in Deep River Venture Capital, when only
    your IP was in the portfolio of Weavers fund, and in the Cherokee fund of his partner
    Tom Darden ?

    Al

  943. Andrea Rossi

    Al:
    Unfortunately my wife now is in Italy and without her I am without resources, so I just am working. About the momentum of my first service, I think h-bar is an unvalicable barrier, unlike I find some kind of a tunnel effect.
    (QuarkX good).

  944. Keith Mostert

    Dr Andrea Rossi
    I have read on the book of Vessela Nicolova that your old patent of Petroldragon has been used in Canada where has been made a plant that works with the technology you invented in 1978; also I read that ENI made a similar plant. Isn’t it a vindication of your old work ?
    Cheers,
    Keith

  945. Andrea Rossi

    Keith Mostert:
    I am glad to discover that my old work has left a positive legacy, even if I do no more work in that field. That patent of mine has been allowed with priority May 1978, therefore it expired after 20 years in 1998: it is free for anybody deems it useful, this is the law of the patents.

    Dr. Rossi, you keep saying all Power sources should be “integrated.”
    I think this is wrong.
    Oil,gas,coal, and Nuke Plants have Major Problems.
    Wind, Solar, Geothermal, and Hydro Plants are acceptable ONLY if they
    can produce electricity less expensive then E-Cat.
    Please tell me anything I said that is not 100% correct.

    Dear AR
    Good news that the UK government is having a rethink about the vastly expensive EDF Nuclear Reactor.
    I hope it is as a result of briefings from your European partner, and your clear statements that power station retro-fit with E-cat is only awaiting regulation.
    If so, then the UK government rethink will turn from Nuclear to LENR

    Dear Andrea,

    There is a lot in the news today about the British government’s decision to delay final approval of the building of the new Hinkley Point nuclear power station. There is also quite a bit of discussion how LENR could possibly replace nuclear fission as a cheaper and safer source for carbon-free electricity.

    What do you think about the possibility of the E-Cat/QuarkX plants to be able deliver electricity production on the same scale as current nuclear fission plants?

    Thank you,

    1. Higher COP
    2. More light
    3. More electricity
    4. Better theoretical understanding?

  981. Dear Dr. Rossi,

    One objective for your invention of the 1 mm by 3 cm E-Cat QuarkX was to make it fail-safe. Other than cracking and immediately cooling down, the other failure states would be melting or vaporization of the QuarkX at temperatures out-of-operating limits. Your challenge it seems for consumer certification would be to provide a case for the QuarkX that can withstand high heat and be able to contain the byproducts of a meltdown or vaporization. Is such a case commercially available or will Dr. Rossi invent the QuarkX case?

    Looking forward to seeing commercials on TV next year for your consumer products.
    Best of luck with your certification and production challenges.

    http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nature18940.html

    These are some of the articles describing the discovery that Jupiter’s Great Red spot and the upper atmosphere of other gas giants (Saturn, Uranus & Neptune) are much hotter than expected. (A temperature of 1500 degrees C was mentioned in the BBC article.)

    I don’t think these phenomenon could result from Jupiter-sized thunderclaps (acoustic waves). Or from chemical reactions. Which leaves the question about what is the source of this enormous energy?

    The Nature article mentions the detection of H3+ molecules, which would be composed of three Hydrogen atoms and two electrons.

    Do you have an idea of the possible sources of energy sources on Jupiter?

    Do you think there also could be Lithium on Jupiter?

    Dear Andrea,
    Some months ago the QuarkX was tested for some weeks together with a potential partner who decided to join with you after the test.
    1. Can you tell us if you are now intensively working together with this partner?
    2. If no, does it depend on the ongoing tests on the QuarkX?
    3. If yes, is this partner involved in the industrialization of the QuarkX?
    You are still intensely working on the QuarkX.
    4. Is the work you are doing fundamental: I.e are you discovering new aspects and/or testing theory? or
    5. Are you working on its reliability only? or are you
    6. Improving main aspects like COP, electricity output, light output

    Dear Andrea,

    With regards to creating an E-Cat plant that can operate with stability

    1) Do the E-Cat plants still need your (or your team’s) intervention to maintain stability?
    2) If yes, can it be controlled remotely via the internet, or does a human technician have to be on site?
    3) Do you currently have a sufficient theoretical grasp of the E-Cat reaction to be able understand its behavior?
    4) Do you currently have the staff on hand with the skills to create the needed automated control system?
    5) Will your release of the 1MW plants to “pioneer” customers include having Leonardo personnel on-site for troubleshooting?

    Thank you,

    Hi Tom,
    Thank you for this insightful response; one that I had hoped would tie in the preceding related comments. Your classic case of Satan challenging God over the experiential life of a single man, Job, is a prime example of two very polarized points of view.

    One view believing man generally will buckle under pressure to its lowest level (even cursing his creator). The other view knows otherwise from what a man specifically experienced. One based on the general paradigm human response, the other knowing the exact response from a tested heart.

    However, it did not stop there. Job did not understand his own experience. He believed shear will-power was required to maintain his righteousness with God. Knowing the results of his self-righteousness would only lead to a further gap between Him and Job.

    Although Job was considered the most righteous man of his time God wanted to expose his feeble performance against His omnipotence. Job finally acquiesced to God’s perfect logic. He finally realized it was not about religion but relationship.

    As Deepak Chopra pointed out (an epiphany to me), “There is a gap, then, between what we experience and where that experience comes from, a gap between origin and phenomenon”.
    Thanks Tom.

    Dear Brokeeper,

    At Andrea’s kind invitation to respond to your question about “Why Experience is a Total Mystery”, I offer you the following information for your review:

    Your comment earlier in the blog discussing “‘God and Evolution’ verses an impossible ‘God or Evolution’?” and your Q/A – Can He do that? As a fundamentalist Christian these first thoughts went through my mind reading this thought provoking title. The obvious answer is yes, “with all things are possible with God” (Mt 19:26), prompts me to reply to your inquiry in the format that I have chosen.

    “Could you comment on the following article “Why Experience Is a Total Mystery (According to Science)” by Deepak Chopra, MD.?”

    The article begins: “Most of us have gotten used to the traditional opposition of science and religion. This opposition arose because two worldviews clashed, and only one could win. It was a zero sum game. On one side science stood for facts, data, measurement, experimentation, and a goal of pure objectivity. On the other, religion was cast as entirely the opposite, being faith-based, irrational, unprovable, totally lacking in data, and inherently subjective, which is to say, unreliable. But this was a case where the winning side (science and the larger secular world) claimed the right to paint the losing side (religion and the spiritual world) in the worst possible light.”

    Science vs. religion. Science declares it’s right to rule the world, based on it’s self endowed assertion that it had the right to do so, and damn anyone that says different!

    My comment in reply to your is “My Experience is a Total Mystery (According to Science), and the reasons are stated below!”.

    This assertion has been made before. Satan, the “ruler of this world” presented himself to the court in heaven … “. Job 1:6 Now the day came among them. 7 Then Jehovah said to Satan: “Where have you come from?” Satan answered Jehovah: “From roving about on the earth and from walking about in it.” 8 And Jehovah said to Satan: “Have you taken note of my servant Job? There is no one like him on the earth. He is an upright man of integrity, fearing God and shunning what is bad.” 9 At that Satan answered Jehovah: “Is it for nothing that Job has feared God? 10 Have you not put up a protective hedge around him and his house and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his livestock has spread out in the land. 11 But, for a change, stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your very face.” In this manner, in the court of the heavens, before the entire assembly of God Almighty, Satan openly challenges God’s right to rule the Creation, not just the earth …

    Personal experience defines each of us. For example, I read 4000 Sci-Fi books by the time I was 14 years old, and spent the rest of my life making the software I read about become available to my clients. I believed this was possible, and was able to accomplish the tasks. Beliefs into accomplishments. I am now trying to replicate the Rossi Effect. Beliefs into accomplishments.

    I had trouble in my later life with family and marriage. My closest friend, my wife, encouraged me to study the bible with people that were well educated on the subject. I found myself unable to disprove what I studied, (I really tried!) and became a (reluctant) lover of God, and I try to be a loyal subject of his Kingdom to this day. This was a direct result of my attempt to disprove what I studied about the bible. Beliefs into accomplishments.

    Facts are collected in our minds and are used to form opinions. Opinions are collected in our minds and are used to form attitudes. Attitudes in our minds are assembled into packages that can provide us with beliefs, that are based on an individual’s internal journey, during which facts were collected. Each individual has the opportunity to form his own belief system.

    Here are some questions that I personally therefore know the answers to, as an individual that loves God … (again, beliefs into accomplishments)

    Did God create man?
    Ge 1:26 Then God said: “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness, and let them have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and the domestic animals and all the earth and every creeping animal that is moving on the earth.” 27 And God went on to create the man in his image, in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them.

    Did evolution spawn species?
    Ge 1:24 Then God said: “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds, domestic animals and creeping animals and wild animals of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so. 25 And God went on to make the wild animals of the earth according to their kinds and the domestic animals according to their kinds and all the creeping animals of the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

    What do I need to do today?
    Luke 10:25 Now look! a man versed in the Law stood up to test him and said: “Teacher, what do I need to do to inherit everlasting life?” 26 He said to him: “What is written in the Law? How do you read?” 27 In answer he said: “‘You must love Jehovah your God with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole strength and with your whole mind’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’” 28 He said to him: “You answered correctly; keep doing this and you will get life.”

    Does God listen to our prayers? God listens to people from all nations. (Psalm 145:18, 19)
    Psalm 145:18 Jehovah is near to all those calling on him, To all who call on him in truth. 19 He satisfies the desire of those who fear him. He hears their cry for help, and he rescues them.

    I know now that His Word, the Bible, encourages us to speak to him about any matter that concerns us. (Philippians 4:6, 7) 6 Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.

    Do we need to pray from our heart? Yes! Some prayers are less effective when speaking with God. For example, repeating memorized prayers does not please him. Matthew 6:6 But when you pray, go into your private room and, after shutting your door, pray to your Father who is in secret. Then your Father who looks on in secret will repay you. 7 When praying, do not say the same things over and over again as the people of the nations do, for they imagine they will get a hearing for their use of many words. 8 So do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need even before you ask him.

  1020. John Atkinson

    In your mind’ s eye, in the future, at what point in time will e cat and his cousins out produce heat and electricity being consumed in the world ? About the equlidrium point of their joined production: do you believe coal will be replaced before solar and nuclear? Thank you again for your great and hard work,
    John Atkinson

  1021. Andrea Rossi

    John Atkinson:
    The industrial plants are entered slowly in production, as for the domestic we are working on the tech and the certification issues. About the other energy sources, as I always said, they will be all integrated at the service of mankind. About coal: the E-Cat is fit to be integrated with it.

    Tom Conover’s Multiple Reactor Meltdowns (Hank Mills)

    The following article has been submitted by Hank Mills

    Another individual has emerged who seems to be producing anomalous heat while utilizing combinations of fuel similar to that used in Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat. Tom Conover has reported performing close to two hundred test runs utilizing nickel powder, lithium aluminum hydride (LiAlH4), and sometimes other lithium compounds. Although he has not claimed to produce quantifiable excess heat over any significant period of time, he has witnessed dramatic surges in temperature that have repeatedly destroyed his reactors.

    Dear Andrea,

    It seems like you are focusing your efforts on getting the plant to behave by itself without the constant need of human supervision and intervention.
    Without this your 1MW would not be cost effective.

    1) What areas of expertise are you mostly making use of to solve this problem? Plumbers, electricians, electronics, computer programming, etc?

    2) Also, a typical 1000MW Natural Gas power station is manned by about 30 employees. Does it make sense to operate multiple of your 1MW plants from the same location and sell power to the grid, to reduce the manning costs?

    Best regards,
    Patrick

  1025. Andrea Rossi

    Patrick Ellul:
    1) All of them
    2) This is a very intelligent consideration. Makes sense.

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you tell us at what stage the work with manufacturing the 1MW plants is?

    I know you said you had to redesign the plants based on the experience with the 1MW plant used in the year long test. Have you tested the new design yet, and if so, how has it performed compared to the pilot?

    Thank you very much,

    Frank Acland

  1029. Andrea Rossi

    Frank Acland:
    The construction is going on. The difficulty and the improvement are generated from the necessity to make a subject that does not need Andrea Rossi inside 16- 18 hours per day, and the engineer and the technician of IH for 8 hours per day. We need a subject able to work alone, with nobody, but a certified operator that has to check tha gauges now and again.
    To write this is easy, to imagine that it is not simple is easy too, but to understand really the difficulties is impossible for anybody that has not lived with the plant, inside the plant, for one year of his own life, attending and listening to the plant with his body inside it. The problems we had during the year have been multiple, have been resolved by our great team because we were there immediately when something was gone wrong.
    Now the E-Cat must be able to work alone.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    For the wafer type Ecat utilising a boiler to encompass a slot and be used at higher pressures, it would have to be stayed similar to a conventional steam engine firebox, this would be complex and expensive to produce.

    As a higher pressure alternative to the enclosing boiler with the slot entry, it may be possible to use two conventional dimple jacket panels, flat faces towards each other with enclosure plates on three sides to form a non-pressurised open slot, this assembly would be positioned with the slot vertically on the side, the slot gap would be dimensioned to provide a close side fitting Ecat wafer for good heat transfer, but still easily installed and removed on recharging.

    Alternatively the gap between faces to be adjustable to accommodate wafer thickness tolerance variation or faces adjustable to open then close to clamp against the wafer surfaces on installation / recharge, both versions providing a smaller air gap and better heat transfer, flexible pipe connections required in both cases.

    Each dimple jacket could have controlled amounts of water injected internally through single or multiple connections in the lower edge, with heat from the Ecat wafer then turning it into steam, the steam then extracted from a single connection on the upper edge.

    Depending on design, dimple jackets can be produced for up to 20 barg / 300 psig = 215 deg C steam, or possibly higher, all depending on material of construction / tensile values at temperature / design code, against trade-offs on plate thickness for heat transfer and the various heat transfer coefficients.

    Dear Andrea,
    It seems that Li-air (LiO2) batteries development have made some progress. It may be possible that within a few years electric cars can run on one charge as far as patrol cars on one tank of petrol, having a similar energy content per litre and per kg:
    http://phys.org/news/2016-07-lithium-oxygen-battery-greatly-energy-efficiency.html
    Do you think this type of development is a compatitor of the QuarkX or will it be an addition or even lead to a symbiosis with the QuarkX?
    Thank you for giving your insights.

    Andrea,

    The size of the ever expanding universe is defined by the speed of light times the age of the universe. Nothing can exist out side that diameter. Everything inside this diameter is subject to the curved time-space of the gravitational fields of all matter created by the big bang. Gravity is accumulative, so there can never be true “zero gravity” in the expanding universe and thus there can never be flat time-space in the expanding universe. Since nothing can occupy flat time-space and no state can change in flat time-space, what is the meaning of time and space within flat time-space?

    Andrea,

    It comes down to the question:

    Does curved space-time create gravity or does gravity create space-time?

    The gravity wave caused by the big bang is also traveling at the speed of light.

    It would be interesting to note whether the first photons of the big bang occurred before or after the gravity wave.

    V/R,

    Paul

  1052. Andrea Rossi

    Paul:
    The issue is that, by the General Relativity, gravity is curved space- time: this having been accepted, it is like to ask if it has been born first the egg or the hen.

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    I do not understand why you are receiving so many complaints about the fact that the E- Cat is not yet massively diffused: they do not understand the enormous importance of what you made with the 1 year test of the 1 WW E-Cat and the start of the production of the industrial plants. You made history.
    Thank you for your hard work, that’s what you merit to hear.

    The light that was generated by the first moments of the Big Bang is currently traveling through a space void of matter or energy. What does velocity mean when there is nothing to measure it against?

    V/R,

    Paul

  1058. Andrea Rossi

    Paul:
    That’s Phylosophy, not Physics. In Physics ( General Relativity ) c in the vacuum is a constant independently from whatever is or is not there. Besides, nobody knows if there is or there is not “something” and here is anyway something to refer the speed to: the time during which the distance of the “FOSSIL” photons from us increases.
    Beyond this point, the discussion becomes phylosophycal.

    I believe you misinterpreted something. Which equation demonstrates the speed of light is not constant in vacuum? Based on the above experimental proposal, I just presented the possibility that the speed of light could decay under the influence of an electrostatic potential. When there is an electrostatic potential present, you do not have clear (absence of fields) vacuum conditions.

    From a last month’s article inside E-cat World site, I found this nice comment about Andrea from Ophelia Rump (a reader particularly versed in scientific topics); the comment was an answer to another somewhat rude post and grabbed a record-breaking approval rate by readers:

    http://www.e-catworld.com/2016/06/14/report-on-preliminary-findings-from-e-cat-quarkx-testing-posted-on-ecat-com/#comment-2730681376

    “Get a grip on yourself, he is an eccentric old researcher with a blog and a chat thread, he talks to people who are interested when he feels like it. He is not a performing chimp entertaining your passions for profit. Have you not yet realized that he does not give a fig or a farthing what other people think unless they are supportive of him as a human being?”

    Very nice and intense, in this complex story experience and intuition regarding human nature tells perhaps more than other cold-hearted scientific proofs, as another reader said sometimes ago.

    “Old researcher” is way off, in my opinion, this daily schedule:

    “from 6 am to 7 am I study Physics
    from 7.30 am to 5 pm QuarkX and patents
    from 5 pm to 7 pm litigation
    From 7 pm to 8 pm exercise”

    is tailored to an enthusiast beginner!

    moreover, Andrea passes over his most productive phase of sleeping time, from 4am to 6am, when he’s racked and annoyed in the bed with the permanent revolution

  1074. Greg Leonard

    Dear AR
    I am an aeronautical engineer, so my interest in theoretical physics is that of a layman.
    I note that the speed of light is known to vary according to the medium through which it travels – hence my spectacles work to improve my sight.
    I note that theoretical physicists have invented Dark Matter (and Dark Energy for that matter) to help explain the observed movements of the galaxies.
    It seems entirely plausible that the speed of light through space might just be affected by the density (possibly variable) of the local Dark Matter, so C = 3*10^8 m/s might just be the speed of light near Earth in the ‘here and now’
    regards,
    Greg Leonard

  1075. Andrea Rossi

    Greg Leonard:
    This is an assumption, since the Dark Matter remains an assumption. Somebody used it recently to make energy in a coffee pot, though, therefore now I am confused.

    Dear Andrea,

    Do you have some idea on how many labors will be employed!

    Robert Curto:
    Thank you,
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1088. Hi Andrea,
    First of all thanks for the comment! Well, I would agree with you when Physics may one day experimentally prove the below are not true:
    a) Einstein’s postulate says “The speed of light in free space has the same value c in all inertial frames of reference.”. Question: He speaks about free space, right? So what happens with the speed of light when the medium is influenced by a local intense electromagnetic field density? Actually, these special conditions are poorly or not even explored.
    b) Have we ever measured the propagation speed of light under intense electromagnetic field intensities? I have never heard something like that since today Physics supports that just Gravity may influence the propagation of a photon through a frequency shift (and not over a variable speed since they assume is constant but never proved)
    c) Another example: Let us assume a Compton Scattering process. The outcome of such process is a scattered photon with reduced frequency and a deflected electron. The speed of light is c because the experiment measures the scattered angle post interaction (far away from electron’s field) and without having a clue of what is going on in the meantime (during the interaction).This means that if the speed of light varies (decays) during the interaction, the Compton Scattering experiment has no indication about it.

    In case photon’s speed decays during the interaction that means it acquires a reduced momentum. Then when it is far away from the interacting field, the photon speed recovers to c by keeping its reduced momentum (while in field) that makes the photon to re-adjust its frequency to a lower than the initial.

    i) The simplest way to experimentally verify the above is over the electrostatic deflection experiment that will catch the deviation on the act. Here we speak about an electromagnetic medium that influences the local speed of light while an electron is being accelerated inside a field.
    ii) Another proposal would be (see my work with detailed calculations) a Michelson Interferometer that uses a very stable but variable Laser output. By increasing the power output, the local speed of light is expected to decay in the interference region that will be measured as RED SHIFT over a very accurate Wavelength Measuring Equipment.

    There are much more arguments in regards to a non constant speed of light on quantum level. The problem is who will have the courage to conduct what I proposed above. Research or University Labs or even High School Labs have already the equipment. It is required just to pay attention to the details of the experiment that makes all the difference.

    With the dimensions of the experiment I propose, a 35KV potential will give about 1 cm deviation from the expected Relativistic deflection which is about 7%. When the electron exits the field it has again the expected Relativistic Energy (inside the field is always less), which also agrees with my work.

    Kind Regards

  1089. Andrea Rossi

    Ioannis:
    I have nothing to add to what I said: for me your position is foundamentally wrong.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  1090. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    1) How many individual Quark X’s have been built so far that have proven to operate satisfactorily?

    2) What’s the longest length of time a single Quark X has ran continuously?

    3) How many Quark X’s do you have have running at the same time on a daily basis?

    4) What is the general temperature range of a Quark X when configured to produce maximum electrical production?

    5) Do you think that a factory to produce Quark’s could fit into a shipping container that you could then sell? For example, you feed components (fuel, tubes, wires, electrodes, etc) down one end, a line of robots do the assembly, and completed Quark’s come out the other end?

    6) If the above is possible, could a small, compact Quark “factory” actually be a product in and of itself?

    I would like to see the Quark X be mass manufactured by the billions in the shortest period of time possible. For this to happen, I think that production must be distributed across the world. You could begin by building one plant and manufacture thousands of Quarks. Then, after customers test out the first products, you could offer the plants for sale.

    If you offer the plants for sale at a price no one can beat, then obviously no one will be able to come up with copy cat reactors they can produce at a lower price.

    Sincerely,
    Hank

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Somebody is accusing you to have blocked the R&D of LENR with your activity.
    What do you answer, if anything ?

  1095. Andrea Rossi

    D.:
    It is true exactly the contrary.
    Not only I did not put obstacles to the R&D of our competitors, but our hard work has generated a scientific environment that has opened the doors also to them.
    Before the event of January 2011, when we introduced our E-Cat prototype together with Prof Focardi of the University of Bologna, the LENR people was confined in a village of zombies and the LENR were globally considered less than zero. No one was financing any serious R&D in the field.
    After my work LENR got a tremendous momentum that initiated serious R&D by concerns like Volvo, Elforsk, Mitsubishi, NASA, MIT etc etc etc. in all the world, obtaining the attention of the highest echelons of the DOE and the DOD in the United States of America, where before my work when somebody tried to introduce the concept of LENR the reaction has been similar to the reaction of Dracula in front of crucifix and garlic.
    Without hypocrisy and false modesty I claim that without our work, our tests, our plants, without my extremely difficult work, in which I am leaving years of my life and part of my health working and studying an average of 12 hours per day now and 16 to 18 hours per day ( nights included) during the 1 year test of the 1 MW E-Cat, without all this the LENR would be still a village of zombies. With all respect, this is my sincere opinion.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,

    Can you give us an update on the status of your work on the different versions of the E-Cat.

    a) How is work going with the 1MW E-Cat plants?
    b) Do you have multiple customers with orders in for the 1MW E-Cat plants (low temperature)?
    c) How is work going with the QuarkX?
    d) Is the QuarkX mature enough to be incorporated into industrial plants?
    e) Do you have any customers with orders in for QuarkX plants?
    f) What is the status of having a factory or factories ready to produce your products?

    Many thanks,

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    It is clear that your 1 year test with your 1 MW E-Cat is gone well, apart differences of evaluations due to commercial issues. In few years you made a historic step, but not all have understood this already. They will understand this not thanks to new tests, but only to your E-Cats in the market, like happened with the personal computers. You are totally right to focus on the production, not on further tests. Your strategy will prevail.

    But your desire to set p a foundation is very complex. How are to going to find the children ?
    I hope you don’t intend to give the parents a Gift to pay for the treatment.
    If you give a person a Gift of more than $14,000 you pay the IRS a 35% Gift Tax of everything over that amount. Also there is a lifetime limit on the amount of money you can give as a tax free Gift.
    It is 5.4 million. Check out this information with a Tax expert.
    I am a layman, with a High School education, but I am very interested in cancer, and cancer research.
    In the last 7 years I have exchanged over 10,000 emails with Doctors and others interested in cancer.
    I have a lot of suggestions on how you should spend your money.
    The first two are donate to Saint jude Children’s Research Hospital/
    No patent ever receives a Bill from Saint Jude.
    Another one is CHOP. Children’s Hospital of Phriladeliph. They are doing great work.
    These donations are Tax Deductible, which means you pay Zero Income Tax on the amount of money you donate. And you will be in the 39% Tax Bracket.
    I have a lot of suggestions, let me know if I sound good to you.
    I would like to know what you think about the foundation.

    Robert Curto:
    This issue is one of the pillars of my engagement in all this work and I want real results from it. It is a vow. I do not think that the best way to act in this sense is give the money to organizations, because the risk is that most of the money goes to pay the structure of such organizations instead of to go to the subjects we want to help. We have a completely different idea about how to obtain the due results, without intermediaries.
    Thank you for the suggestions, though.

  1120. Dear Dr. Rossi,

    As regards the ECat QuarkX R&D, do you feel that you have moved from the research phase and more into development? With the precision tools required to construct the ECat QuarkX, does ABB currently have this machinery or will they need to invent and make a custom new tooling for robotic assembly? Motorola’s Six Sigma Program refers to product quality, 3 defects allowed per million final units produced. Your five sigma approach to manufacturing yield of a working QuarkX cell unit more resembles Intel’s chip yield targets which is less than 100%. Intel is looking for more than 50% yield on a new chip design process. Are you being too tough on yourself to expect 5 sigma QuarkX operating cells, or do I miss understand your product performance objective?

    God speed on you difficult tasks.

    Best Regards,

    Jacky:
    I am a scientist and an industrialist, my time is necessary to make jobs, clean and economically convenient energy, a foundation to help the needs of children who have cancer, therefore all that counts to me are results and facts, not chatters.
    The matter of the fact is that to make a settlement it takes two parties.
    War is the logic continuation of a relationship when other means are no more possible ( Von Clausevitz ) : symmetrically, diplomacy is the logic continuation of war when other means return to be possible.

    Dear Andrea,
    We are pleased to hear that your work continues to do well and show promise. The ability to cycle the QuarkX on and off during the day is one of the operational condition issues that you mentioned earlier, and I can easily imagine that it may well be one of the “specific success” functions required for the certification process.

    You have spoken of the year of the cat being 2016 recently. May I ask then, please? “Are you convinced right now that you will achieve certification for the QuarkX sometime prior to April of 2017?”

    Warm regards,

    Dear Andrea,
    I have just a simple question: I know that the standard E-cat plant can produce steam just over 100 C, but can you indicate to what maximum temperature steam can be produced if the steam system would be suitable for it? Obviously I am not talking about the EcatX or the QuarkX.
    Thanks for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  1155. Andrea Rossi

    Gerard McEk:
    The E-Cat of the type that has been operated during the 1 year test is designed for low temperature steam. To get higher temperatures it is necessary the design used in the high temperature reactors.

  1156. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    If each Quark does not require a large space, then I think that one sheet of Quarks could produce hundreds of times more electricity than a solar panel of the same size during peak solar radiance.

    A few facts (approximate numbers).

    1 – The most efficient solar panel that is not used for concentrated solar collection is approximately 22% efficient. For fairness, let’s say by the end of this year that may increase to 25%.

    2 – During peak hours of the day when there are no clouds the earth receives approximately 1000 watts per square meter.

    3 – This would mean that a typical solar panel of one meter squared might produce 250 watts for a few hours a day, lesser output the rest of the day, and no output at night.

    4 – Although I found a solar panel online that was 33mm thick (a little thicker than the Quark is long).

    In absolute worst case, in which each Quark needed one hundred square millimeters of space, ten thousand Quarks could fit in a single meter sized slab. If each of these Quarks produced five watts of electricity (ignoring heat and light output), that would mean an output of 50,000 watts or 50 kilowatts.

    50,000 watts divided by 250 watts (the peak output of a solar panel of one meter square) is 200.

    So to equal the output of a single slab of Quarks, you would need at minimum 200 solar panels of the same area that magically could produce the same amount of power 24 hours a day and during any weather conditions.

    Hence, the Quark — once the output is confirmed via rigorous testing by multiple third parties — could potentially be far superior by orders of magnitude to solar power.

    And I think that one reason why some parties are attacking you so vigorously may be due to their defense of the renewable industry.

    On a personal level I’m a Christian, and I do not believe in social Darwinism — that only the fittest should be allowed to survive and the disadvantaged (poor, weak, diseased, depressed) should be allowed to die without any consideration. However, technologically speaking, I lean heavily towards technological Darwinism. If the Quark technology turns out to be superior to photovoltaic technology, then the Quark should flourish and solar should be allowed to fade away.

    PS: The above analysis (although it may be incorrect due to the fact I’m unsure how closely the Quark’s can be placed together) doesn’t even factor in the advantages of the Quark in terms of portability.

    Dear Andrea,

    Let me please rephrase my question.

    If you wanted to setup an array of of Quarks in a flat plane of one square meter, how much distance between the center axis of each Quark (right down the center of the reactor) would be required?

    I understand that there would be wires coming from each end of the Quark so there would need to be additional circuitry, control boxes, and so fourth.

    Thank you.

    Hank

  1165. Andrea Rossi

    Hank Mills:
    These are constructive particulars I am not going to talk about here, for obvious reasons, because they would generate a cascade of questions leading to confidential information.

    Dear Andrea,

    For 2016 to be the year of the E-Cat, I think we would need:

    1. E-Cat plants working in the real world (not under NDA)
    2. Customers happy to openly report about successful operations and significant cost savings (again not under NDA).
    3. Some video of your plants in operation.

    Which of the above do you hope to achieve in 2016?

  1171. Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,

    1) What is the diameter of the entire setup that is required for one individual Quark X to produce electricity directly? As a hypothetical example, a 1mm diameter reactor tube with a 3mm diameter shield around it.

    2) What number of Quark X’s producing electricity directly could hypothetically fit into a given area of space? For example, one square meter of flat surface?

    3) For example, there are a million square millimeters in a meter. If a single quark and apparatus to produce electrical power required four square millimeters of space, that would mean 250,000 Quarks could fit into one meter. If more space was required between Quarks, we could claim eight square millimeters of space. That would mean 125,000 Quarks could fit in one square meter of flat space. If we were to be very conservative and claim that a Quark could produce 5% electricity (not 20%) or five watts each, that would mean a panel of Quarks could produce 625,000 watts or 625 kilowatts.

    Do you think this analysis is plausible for an eventual product?

    Do you think it is optimistic or conservative?

    Sincerely,
    Hank Mills

    Dear Andrea,
    I do not know it this question has been asked before, but I hope you are willing to answer:
    You spend a lot of time in the 1MW plant during the test. You were checking the ‘symphony of the bubbles’. Did you mainly do that to optimize and adjust the plant to achieve the best possible COP?
    1. In other words, if you hadn’t been there every night, would the plant then have been less efficient, e.g. a lower COP?
    2. If your answer is ‘yes’, do you think a more sophisticated control system could replace you and are you working on that?
    Thanks for answering our questions.

    As you explained, IH received every three months a quarterly report from the ERV and all the reports had moreless the same results, from the first to the fourth.
    You said that IH accepted deiighted the first, the second and the third reports, respectively after three, six and nine months after the start of the 1 year test of the 1 MW E-Cat and collected many millions from their investors thanks to such reports.
    The question is: did IH pay the first, second and third report of the ERV ?

  1186. Dan Galburt

    Dear Andrea Rossi:

    Your tests of the E-Cat show that it can operate for > 6 months without refueling at commercial power levels of up to 1 MW thermal with an energy gain > 30(thermal out Vs electrical in). One characteristic that has not been demonstrated is the ability to cycle the E-Cat on and off, or modulate the power level while maintaining a reasonable level of efficiency.

    While your short term goal of developing a product for central heating applications may require only a limited ability to either fully modulate the power level or turn the system on and off, for most applications, the ability to either fully modulate the power level or cycle the system on and off perhaps up to 1000 times per year would be extremely useful. Without such capability, given variable heat loads associated with heat applications, a significant energy storage capability will be needed. Certainly, if the E-Cat X were used in place of an oil burner in a home heating system, the ability to cycle it on and off would be essential.

    My questions are:

    1. Have you demonstrated by testing that the E-Cat can be cycled on and off repeated while still maintaining a reasonable power gain?

    2. Have you demonstrated by testing that the E-Cat X can be cycled on and off repeated while still maintaining a reasonable power gain?

    3. Have you demonstrated by testing that the E-Cat power level can be fully modulated while still maintaining a reasonable power gain?

    4. Have you demonstrated by testing that the E-Cat X power level can be fully modulated while still maintaining a reasonable power gain?

    While I realize you may need to keep this type of performance data private, even yes/no answers to these questions will give your followers some idea of what has been achieved in this area.

    Fact #1 – The Rossi Effect has been replicated and produced high levels of excess heat.

    Fact #2 – Although multiple parties across the globe have replicated the Rossi Effect, for every one highly successful replicate (Parkhomov, N.Stepanov, Songsheng Jiang, possibly Tom Conover, Me356, etc) there are many more replications that produce little to no excess heat.

    When do you think everybody will be able to reproduce your effect, even if not particularly skilled in the art ?

    Dear Andrea,
    about evolutionism, i send you a little novel i wrote in 2012 on 22 passi. I hope you like.
    Il pianeta delle macchine.
    Un giorno su uno strano pianeta non molto distante dal nostro apparve la vita, ma non la vita come la conosciamo noi, in forma biologica, ma in forma meccanica. Cioè apparvero esseri meccanici costituiti di acciaio, leve, motori a combustione, fili, tubi dell’olio, etc. Insomma un mondo di macchine. C’erano macchine molto semplici con funzioni basilari elementari come produrre calore o forza motrice e macchine molto più complesse che potevano fare cose meravigliose, come pensare, volare, trasmettere suoni ed immagini a distanza, etc. Questo mondo aveva delle religioni e degli scritti antichissimi in cui si parlava di un Dio macchina che aveva creato gli esseri macchina a sua immagine e somiglianza, ed aveva dato loro anche la capacità di riprodursi, e che bisognava seguire le dieci tavole della legge, cioè non avrai altra macchina fuori di me, non rubare l’olio lubrificante altrui, etc. Ma la scienza su questo pianeta progrediva, e molte macchine tra le più sapienti ed evolute, con più memoria (RAM) più intelligenza (processori di ultima generazione) e capacità di progettare altre macchine (software evoluto), cominciarono a porsi il problema di come fosse apparsa la prima macchina sul pianeta. Se c’era stata una creazione da parte di un Dio oppure la vita delle macchine era nata dal caso. Molti furono tacciati di eresia dai sacerdoti del Dio macchina, e fusi al rogo degli altiforni, perché avevano osato contraddire la Creazione e gli scritti religiosi. Ma gli scienziati macchina più testardi elaborarono la teoria della evoluzione delle macchine, perché nel frattempo l’archeologia e la storia avevano trovato degli antichi reperti meccanici, resti delle prime forme di vita primitiva, e cosa sorprendente queste macchine primitive funzionavano con lo stesso principio di quelle moderne. Allora si teorizzò che per caso in un tempo lontano il minerale ferro che stava nelle viscere del pianeta si fosse liberato delle impurità, poi si fosse (sempre da solo e per caso) fuso in forme strane di vita come cilindri e pistoni, che poi milioni di anni dopo si sarebbero incontrati, e infilati l’uno dentro l’altro, per un movimento possibile. Molti milioni di anni dopo ci fu l’incontro (sempre casuale) con il carburante petrolio che si era posizionato in un serbatoio sempre casualmente formatosi in milioni di anni di cristallizzazione nelle immediate vicinanze. Poi erano nati da lunghissimi processi evolutivi separati e casuali, il carburatore, la pompa, la candela, l’albero di trasmissione del moto, la cinghia dentata in gomma e la puleggia, etc. E poi dopo svariati milioni di anni, di eventi catastrofici planetari, di tempeste di meteoriti, di numerosi enormi eventi sismici, sempre per caso e progressivamente tutti i pezzi erano andati al posto giusto, il cilindro ed il pistone, furono messi in un blocco motore, vicino alla candela, e così via tutti gli altri pezzi, dalla combustione all’alternatore all’impianto elettrico. Era nata la macchina con il motore a combustione termico. Poi in molti milioni di anni la macchina motore si era molto evoluta, aveva molti più cavalli rispetto all’esemplare primordiale grazie sempre al caso si erano evolute tutte le parti meccaniche del motore, erano nate candele di nuova generazione da una nuova millenaria cristallizzazione di ceramiche, si erano costituite casualmente per reazioni iterative delle nuove leghe metalliche per i cilindri ed i pistoni, poi era nata da un fulmine globulare la iniezione elettronica del carburante, etc. La teoria della evoluzione soppiantò nel pensiero corrente, quella della creazione, e diventò quella maggioritaria, il Maistream. Ma poi qualcuno che non credeva al Dio macchina e che non credeva neanche a tutta questa infinita serie di eventi casuali, si mise a fare degli esperimenti sui pistoni e cilindri. E si accorse che per quanto provasse a lasciare alle intemperie ed al caso ciottoli di minerale ferroso al massimo otteneva delle pietre bucate, o delle pietre levigate, ma la probabilità che il caso creasse separatamente un cilindro di acciaio levigato ed un pistone di acciaio levigato perfettamente a misura che uno potesse produrre lavoro utile uno dentro l’altro era infinitesima. Enunciò pubblicamente la propria teoria che una intelligenza potesse aver creato cilindro e pistone in tali forme e per uno scopo, e fu attaccato ferocemente da tutti gli evoluzionisti del Mainstream che dicevano che no, che allora si ricadeva nelle credenze religiose antiquate del Dio macchina, e contemporaneamente anche dagli altri sacerdoti del Dio macchina, che dicevano che non bisognava né studiare né fare esperimenti, poiché la creazione era descritta chiaramente nei loro testi religiosi, e che bisognava credere in quelli ciecamente e basta, dogmaticamente. Insomma il povero scienziato macchina che voleva sperimentare per capire, fu schiacciato da entrambi gli schieramenti, solo perché aveva osato indagare, e vera o falsa che fosse la sua idea, recava con sé il peccato originale di tutte le macchine, cioè voi non siete nate per pensare, a pensare ci pensiamo noi che sappiamo e possiamo, tu non sei un nostro pari, non sei peer reviewed. Fu rinchiuso nelle caverne segrete della regione degli esseri del motociclo, i terribili Honda, a regime di benzina putrida ed antigelo: unica concessione un pistone ed un cilindro con cui lambiccarsi la centralina e continuare a chiedersi: ma come è stato possibile che…

    Planet of the machines.
    One day on a strange planet appeared not far from our life, but not life as we know it, in organic form, but in a mechanical form. So appeared mechanical beings made of steel, levers, combustion engines, wire, oil pipes, etc. In short, a world of machines. There were very simple machines with elementary basic functions such as producing heat or motive power and a lot more complex machines that could do wonderful things, how to think, to fly, to transmit sounds and images at a distance, etc.This world had religions and ancient writings that spoke of a God machine that had created the machine beings in his image and likeness, and had given them the ability to reproduce, and they had to follow the ten tables of the law, that is, you will have no other machine out of me, do not steal other people’s lubricating oil, etc. But the science on this planet progressed, and many machines of the most wise and evolved with more memory (RAM) more intelligence (the latest generation of processors) and ability to design other machines (advanced software), they began to consider the problem of how he appeared the first car on the planet. If there had been a creation by a God or life of the machines he was born by chance. Many were accused of heresy by the priests of the God machine, blast furnace and melted at the stake, because they had dared to contradict the creation and religious writings. But the most stubborn machine scientists worked out the theory of evolution of the machines, because in the meantime the archeology and history of the ancient mechanical artifacts were found, the remains of the earliest forms of primitive life, and amazing thing these primitive machines were working with the same principle modern ones. Then he theorized that by chance in a distant time the iron ore that was in the bowels of the planet had been freed of impurities, then it (always alone and by chance) fused into strange life forms such as cylinders and pistons, which then millions of years after they met, and they inserted one inside the other, for a possible movement. Many millions of years later there was a meeting (always random) with fuel oil that was placed in a tank always randomly formed over millions of years of crystallization in the immediate vicinity. Then they were born from long separate evolutionary processes and random, the carburetor, the pump, the candle, the shaft for transmitting motion, the rubber toothed belt and the pulley, etc. And then after several million years of planetary catastrophic events, meteor storms, numerous huge seismic events, always by chance and gradually all the pieces had gone to the right place, the cylinder and the piston, they were put into an engine block , near the spark plug, and so on all the other pieces, from the combustion to the alternator to the electrical system. He was born the machine with the thermal combustion engine. Then in many millions of years the motor car had very advanced, had many more horses than ever thanks to the primordial exemplary case had evolved all the mechanical parts of the engine, were born new generation candles from a new millenarian crystallization of ceramics , they had formed randomly for iterative reactions of new metal alloys for cylinders and pistons, then was born of the ball lightning, electronic fuel injection, etc. The theory of evolution supplanted in current thinking, that of creation, and became the majority, the Maistream. But then someone who did not believe in God, and that the machine does not even believe in all this endless series of random events, began to experiment on the pistons and cylinders. And he noticed that as he tried to leave to the elements and to the case of iron ore pebbles at most obtained of stones with holes in them, or smooth stones, but the probability that the case would create separately a polished steel cylinder and a polished steel cylinder perfectly to the extent that one could produce useful work within each other it was infinitesimal. Publicly he enunciated his theory that intelligence could have created the cylinder and piston in such forms and for a purpose, and was fiercely attacked by all evolutionists Mainstream saying that no, which then fell into antiquated religious beliefs of the God Machine, and simultaneously also by other priests of the God machine, saying that you had neither studying nor doing experiments since the establishment was clearly described in their religious texts, and they had to believe in ones and just blindly, dogmatically. In short, the poor scientist machine that wanted to experience to understand, was crushed by both sides, because he had dared to investigate, and true or false that it was his idea, went with him the original sin of all machines, that is, you are not born to think, to think we’ll do that, and we know we can, you are not our peers, are not peer reviewed. He was imprisoned in the secret caves of the region of the motorcycle beings, the terrible Honda, the putrid and anti-freeze petrol regime: only concession a piston and a cylinder in which the racking unit and continue to ask, but how was it possible that …
    All references to people and events that occurred is purely coincidental.

    Dear Andrea,
    I have thoroughly enjoyed your discourse with Tom Conover on his discoveries of LENR. What I was most impressed with was the discussion on the very controversial topic of evolution and your response to godless scientific assumptions.

    I would like to introduce you and your readers to a book written by an ex-fundamentalist pastor Daniel Samson “God and Evolution? – The Implications of Darwin’s Theory for Fundamentalism, the Bible and the Meaning of Life”. He is among the first to challenge both sides of this polarized thinking. He left his pastor-ship to do an exhaustive 14-year scientific study with respect to God’s word.
    As a personal friend of mine he asked me to review the original un-published version for comments. He reminds me of you Andrea in his tenacious thirst for discovery of truth in love.
    What I concluded from this review is (commented in the Amazon.com):

    “‘God and Evolution’ verses an impossible ‘God or Evolution’?”(By Amazon Customer on November 2, 2012):
    “God creates through the process [or simulative process] of evolution? – Can He do that? As a fundamentalist Christian these first thoughts went through my mind reading this thought provoking title. The obvious answer is yes, “with all things are possible with God” (Mt 19:26). However, my Christian doctrinal teachings contradicted such paradigms. After carefully reading Samson’s book I began seeing less of an inconsistency between empirical scientific studies and God’s written word.

    The Bible is mostly a spiritual book speaking of spiritual truths. However, God also reveals his creative powers and plans that generally could not be understood by the audience addressed at the time (i.e. Israel, previously Egyptian slaves, taught under a government of mythological religion) who were ignorant of today’s astrophysical, geophysical, and anthropological sciences. God through His messengers spoke in metaphorical language they could understand. As Samson has pointed out, science has grown in its hunt towards truth – the same truth often verified in scripture but often again ignored or spun by clergy to maintain their control or doctrinal purity. On-the-other hand science refuses to believe God’s creative power as truth because of its eternal implications it can’t explain but attempts to avoid its eternal repetitive question – “What caused it?”

    Evolution is not directly stated in scriptures but does leave open interpretation the word “eons” or “ages” (interpreted by many as “days”) of time between the Genesis creation periods. From God’s point of view “one day is with the Lord as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day” (2Pe 3:8). In other words time is irrelevant to God. John 8:58 states “Jesus said unto them, Verily, Verily I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am”. Because God is not bound by His own creation of space and time He inhabits eternity – not specifically to past, present or future but all is present to Him.

    What God does reveal about evolution is what Dan Samson calls “God’s Second Bible” of fossilized records of a gradual progressive change in plant and animal design throughout earth’s time capsule. “For the invisible things of him FROM the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power” (Rom 1:20).
    The real benefit I see from Samson’s studies is not the studies themselves but how it draws two polarizing opinions to a central theme of uncompromising truth of “God and Evolution” verses an impossible “God or Evolution”. This book should be available as a college-elective study.”

    My challenge in studying this new perspective was to overcome biases instilled through decades of man-made doctrines throughout the centuries as it is to overcome those entrenched scientific doctrinal paradigms. For me it is much more difficult to ‘unlearn’ as it is to learn.

    I hope you find time to research this book, but I do understand it is not on your high priority list, especially the victory over your tennis nemesis. 😉

    Also, I want to congratulate you on your growing recognition by highly renowned scientific leaders. God is with you as men in past history (despite our failings) in pulling the world back from brink of destruction.
    With much respect,
    Brokeeper (or Rob)

    Dear Andrea,

    I agree that evolution advances through the stochastic, fortuitous creations of cumulative basic toolsets upon which further progress is exponentially grown. For example, the Cambrian Explosion 540 million years ago during which most major animal phyla appeared. A few million years ago, our ape ancestors achieved another qualitative leap in their evolutionary toolset that put them ahead of other species which failed to evolve the same capability in the time given. Indeed, it spawned what seem to be many sentient species of hominids which eventually went extinct from either competitive exclusion or crossbred to create what we now call humans. From a Christian perspective, I suppose it is a matter of when God first intervened and injected a soul.

  1200. Dear Andrea,

    The human brain has indeed reached an advanced stage of evolution. It might be necessary with a more rigid definition of “culture” though, because indeed there are other animals that will cultivate their offspring (for instance you have this phenomenon among killer whales and dolphins, where the parents will educate their children in order to learn specific hunting techniques). This is something passed on through generations.

    I think the very sophistication of human culture is due to our big brains. When energy is no longer in short supply, we will be able to dedicate our time to intellectual pursuits.

    Yes, I believe the fact that we started to make fire and to cook our food was the onset of the evolution of the human brain. It’s nothing short of a miracle that this happened. It’s one of these “black swan” events that set our species on a very separate course from other species. What is the probability that this would happen simultaneously for two different species? I think it’s not very probable. Also we need to consider the fact that the evolution of the human species, from the first cooked meal, is a rather short period in terms of evolutionary time from the first amoeba.

    Now we’re just waiting for the next stage of evolution, with “the new fire”. 😉

    Dear Andrea,

    You wrote: “the probability that among n forms of life on and in the Earth only one evolves to a culturally developed level are 1/n”. This does not follow, the probability may be much less, i.e., 1/googol. In such case, it is not at all infeasible that only one (or, indeed, none of the) species out of n species “make it” to an advanced stage in x time. Moreover, humans have only been what you would call culturally developed for some tens of thousands of years. Evolution takes time; you would not expect to see billions of years of basic evolution followed up by the conception of higher intelligence–a fundamentally fortuitous circumstance–only to suddenly have the same thing happen across many different species in orders of magnitude(!!) less time than it took for this to occur for the first time.

  1203. Andrea Rossi

    Janne:
    Yes, also the time-related factor is a good argument. In 1978 I read a book written by an author whose name was Beethoven ( but not a parent ) that examined thoroughly this issue. I agree also upon this point, but it gives room for counterchatters, like, for example, the possibility of exponential jumps after cumulative basic elements are achieved. The probabilistic factor makes very unlikely the general evolution, albeit not impossible: in mathematic and in physics nothing is impossible, everything is associated to a probability number, but the probability that a general evolution could work only on one living being out of tens of thousands in the same basic environment are very, very tiny.

  1204. Hal Roth

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Thank you for your fantastic insight about evolutionism. It is a comment from which we can also understand the thickness of your culture and the creative intelligence you take advantage of it. I have been stunned from your mathematical considerations regarding the absurdity of what you call the general evolutionism. I never heard before such considerations, but they make a strong point.
    No doubt that LENR have found the right man, or, perhaps, the right man has found the LENR at the right time.
    Godspeed,
    Hal

  1205. Janne

    Dear Andrea,

    Who is to say how likely the evolution of a higher intellect like ours is in the Universe? It could be one in a googol! Perhaps most planets exhibiting advanced lifeforms, if there are any such, never develop species with human level brain power because it is ludicrously, grotesquely unlikely. Evolution is not an inexorable ‘force’ towards greater complexity per se, but greater adaptability. That’s why we still have bacteria and archae. It does not necessitate what appears to be the sole freak occurrence towards adaptability through extreme intelligence. Think of it as a wheelbarrow: once it starts tipping over, its direction is determined. However, without the initial push ( = an extremely rare set of circumstances toward adaptability mainly through extreme intelligence over other physical traits) the fall will never occur in the first place!

    Best regards,
    Janne

  1206. Andrea Rossi

    Janne:
    I am not talking of the Universe: I am talking of the Earth. Again: the probability that among n forms of life on and in the Earth only one evolves to a culturally developed level are 1/n. The probability that (n-1) life forms do not evolve even a bit toward superior cultural forms make n become an exponential. This, obviously, if we accept the general concept of evolutionism.

    @Gerd @authors
    Yes I was aware of it. I also read in the document that Andrea Rossi had read this report. I had hoped Andrea would be willing to confirm that the relatively simple the methodology described in this document was also used to calculate the required fuel for the 1 year 1 MW test.
    The interesting thing is that the two authors assume a fusion between lithium and nickel, something I did not read before.
    My question to the authors is: I am sure you also tried to fit many other possible reactions, but that these two reactions fitted best with the assumed energy release of the Lugano test. Can you tell what other reactions you tried to fit?

  1216. Dear Andrea,

    I was reading your response to Tom Conover. You’re asking about the evolution of the human brain. Why did only the human species arrive to have such big brains?

    I would suggest to you that you read the works of Suzana Herculano-Houzel. She has a very strong theory on the evolution of the human brain.

    First of all, we need to make a distinction between primates and other mammals. The primate brain is different, because when it scales, the number of neurons will be proportional to its volume. This is not the case with other mammals, such as rats. A scaled up rat brain will not have more neurons than a small rat brain.

    Second, if we accept the first premise, why have not all primates arrived to have a brain the size of the human brain?

    What we need to consider is, how important is our brain for our survival. We need to consider that the brain is a very energy demanding instrument. A large brain will require more energy than a small one. In other words, when energy is in short supply, it’s not necessarily so that a large brain will be an advantage (unless of course a large brain allows us to more easily save energy in other ways).

    What Suzana discovered was that the human species was the first species that ever learnt to cook its food. There is no evidence of any other species cooking its food. The process of cooking the food, allowed us to save a lot of energy, since raw food required more energy in order to be processed by the body. This allowed our brains to expand and it allowed us to be even more energy efficient. Hence the evolution of the human brain.

    Please let me know if you think this is not a convincing exposition. I would also encourage you to watch the TED talk of Suzana Herculano-Houzel.

    Kind regards,
    Mattias

    Dear Andrea,

    Please let me first say these were isotopic numbers from the EcatWorld website from an UNKNOWN POSTER, not related to my experiments. Although I would like it if they were. This version of the table should also be easier to see the results on the blog, I replace the tab characters from Xcel with spaces. These results consume 7Li.

    While I have done many experiments, I have not replicated the ecat yet, none of the tests were strong enough to send in the ash for isotopic analysis. I apologize if I said anything that may have implied that.

    My question is and remains “Should I replace the Li6 in my recipies with Li7 fluoride?” Below is a nicer copy of the table you like.

    Tom Conover:
    I understand, sorry, my mistake of interpretation about what you wrote.
    I cannot answer in positive or in negative to the kind of questions you put, but since you are making experiments, the sole way to know if a thing works is to try. Attention, though, use a mask with a proper filter and work in a well ventilated lab, because the materials you are using are toxic and dangerous. I do not know if you are an expert experimentalist or not, therefore: if you are not an expert experimentalist, please work with the assistance of an expert for safety reasons.

    Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for your awesome reply about the certification process on the blog to me! It brings music to my heart. Please allow me a moment if possible to ramble on about my hobby efforts with replicating the e-cat effect, as many scientists and pragmatic engineers have done as they hear about your results. I hope you enjoy this short read at least a little, and I hope that it reassures you about me a little, and makes you feel good inside, as I would never do what I have done without having great admiration and respect for your research and upcoming massive production that will soon help the world.

    Here is the short story:

    During the last 16 months I have built about 200 test reactors and used the Arduino computer as the control system to run tests on many of the test reactors that I constructed. I use 26 ga nichrome with alumina tubing from Coorstek Alumina AD-998 tubing to hold the reactors, I spool the coil using a lathe and carefully screw the tubing gently into the coil to build the heater for the system. Next I mix a small amount of alumina paste using powdered alumina, and coat the coil with the paste. Finally I insert the alumina heating tube into another alumina (or sometimes Mullite) tube to shield the nichrome wire from atmospheric corrosion and burn out, making certain the the heating coil fits snug into the sheath to insure long life of the system.

    I load the fuel mixture into a titanium or stainless steel tube, and my engineer friend (who does lots of work for the infamous medical company Medtronics) laser welds plugs to seal the tube. I have had about six sessions that my buddy witnessed results from my projects, and the very first one resulted in a temperature that my friend stated was likely to have been 3000 to 4000 F in temperature at the end, and melted down. (Many, many, many of my reactors have self destructed, but always safely and always in a thermal control box that I do the test in that is lined with firebrick for safety. ) I use a mask, gloves, and safety glasses when I mix the fuel, and always read an follow instructions on the material safety data sheet (msds).

    I have tested about 50 mixtures of fuel, many of which achieved temperatures that destroyed the very high quality Alumina that I use, specifications for max temperature shown below, with computer controlled temperatures that never exceeded 1250° C, but the 1750° C alumina still melted. Hmmm … Several of the reactor tubes during autopsy also displayed a thin layer of copper near the burn out area, which my engineer buddy opined were possibly atomic changes due to the type of experiment we performed.

    Maximum Use Temperature (no load) 1750° C

    The ash results published on Franks news site show the quantity of “7Li” changed dramatically (see the table below), I and have never used this expensive version of Lithium in my experiments before, as I try to be thrifty (but not stupid) and responsible in my spending behavior for my hobby. I don’t need your or want your opinion on the table here, I am just saying that it turned the experimental enthusiasm in my blood back “on”.

    Finally, the Question of the day. Please save me much effort if you can and if I should not pursue this new experiment, as I have stopped my replication efforts at this time, with a nod of your head or a thumbs down for this element that I propose to include in the fuel mixture.

    Should I enrich the fuel with CAS Number: 17409-87-9 Lithium-7Li fluoride? (and of course the fuel will also contain “LiAlH4” also!).

    Thank you for considering a reply of just “yes” or “no” as to whether or not 7Li would be fun for my experiment, I can definitely afford it one way or another, but, well you know …

    God bless you Andrea, and thank you!

    By the way, I totally agree with you about referring to God as the “Father”. I often do this too! I hope that I have not offended you at all, that is not my intention. The only attribute that the title “Father” does not help us incorporate in our thoughts is that individuals have personal names, for example my fathers name was “William”. Your biological father also has a personal name, just as everyone’s biological fathers do. To get to know your biological father as a person, even though you might call him “father” as his son, you would never consider forgetting his given name, in my case my father’s given name again was “William”. The creator has a personal name too. That is why I like the name “Jehovah” in my bible of choice. The original bible is also a “legal” document, so it included these identifications, for the benefit of those who read it. Many bibles however, do choose to replace this personal name information, because millions of people feel that it is more respectful to do so.

    Inspiration of the Day for you. I’m still not sure why God asked Job these exact questions, but they inspire me anyway. So then, what questions did God Almighty ask Job when he demonstrated the scope of his thought processes to Job?

    Job 37:1 “Listen carefully to the rumbling of HIS voice and the thunder that comes from his mouth. He unleashes it under the entire heavens and sends his lightning to the ends of the earth.”

    Job 38:1 Then Jehovah answered Job out of the windstorm:

    2 “Who is this who is obscuring my counsel

    And speaking without knowledge?

    3 Brace yourself, please, like a man;

    I will question you, and you inform me.

    4 Where were you when I founded the earth?

    Tell me, if you think you understand.

    5 Who set its measurements, in case you know,

    Or who stretched a measuring line across it?

    6 Into what were its pedestals sunk,

    Or who laid its cornerstone,

    7 When the morning stars joyfully cried out together,

    And all the sons of God began shouting in applause?

    8 And who barricaded the sea behind doors

    When it burst out from the womb,

    9 When I clothed it with clouds

    And wrapped it in thick gloom,

    10 When I established my limit for it

    And put its bars and doors in place,

    11 And I said, ‘You may come this far, and no farther;

    Here is where your proud waves will stop’?

    12 Have you ever commanded the morning

    Or made the dawn know its place,

    13 To take hold of the ends of the earth

    And to shake the wicked out of it?

    14 It is transformed like clay under a seal,

    And its features stand out like those of a garment.

    15 But the light of the wicked is held back from them,

    And their uplifted arm is broken.

    16 Have you gone down to the sources of the sea

    Or explored the deep waters?

    17 Have the gates of death been revealed to you,

    Or have you seen the gates of deep darkness?

    18 Have you understood the vast expanse of the earth?

    Tell me, if you know all of this.

    19 In which direction does the light reside?

    And where is the place of darkness,

    20 That you should take it to its territory

    And understand the paths to its home?

    21 Do you know this because you were already born

    And the number of your years is great?

    22 Have you entered the storehouses of the snow,

    Or have you seen the storehouses of the hail,

    23 Which I have reserved for the time of distress,

    For the day of battle and war?

    24 From what direction is light dispersed,

    And from where does the east wind blow on the earth?

    25 Who has cut a channel for the flood

    And made a path for the thunderous storm cloud,

    26 To make it rain where no man lives,

    On the wilderness where there are no humans,

    27 To satisfy devastated wastelands

    And cause the grass to sprout?

    28 Does the rain have a father,

    Or who fathered the dewdrops?

    29 From whose womb did the ice emerge,

    And who gave birth to the frost of heaven

    30 When the waters are covered as if with stone,

    And the surface of the deep waters is frozen solid?

    31 Can you tie the ropes of the Kiʹmah constellation

    Or untie the cords o
