It is literally impossible not to laugh every time I see that photo of Rossi using a stethoscope to monitor a nuclear reactor (or simple water boiler in reality). I know the ridiculous backstory behind the use perpetuated on Planet Rossi, but this is pretty much the same thing as the timing and air/fuel mixture of a 1000+ horsepower engine being tuned by smelling the exhaust. Pure comedy....I am just rollling today reading posts.
Forget "nuclear reactor," it creates a host of images that don't apply. Is it reasonable to use a stethoscope to check the state of boiling in a single reactor?
Yes. It is.
We do not add credibility to criticism of Rossi by criticizing and ridiculing what might be reasonable.
