Rossi-Blog Comment Discussion

  • My favourite correspondent on Rossi`s site is the joyously named "Rafaelle Bongo". He is a reliable Rossi acolyte. To my intense disappointment, though, over time I have become persuaded that he is not a sock puppet but a real person.

  • A language researcher would have real fun to browse through Rossi‘s blog analyzing syntax, semantics and style of the posts. Except for a few well known folks like Frank Acland and some others who have a significant different style of writing you will see the same old and obvious pattern of Rossi-style in the rest...I am not native, but I am sure Allan, Shane, and even Adrian will notice this.

    Rossi seem to spend more time reading, asking a and answering himself in front of his computer than “performing scientific work” to get his new product to market.


    Rossi's genius is in getting a whole site of people (ECW) and one thread here to pore over his self-publicising blog + sock puppets as though there was some important truth to be found therein. And you can see (I think) his character craves this virtual importance, though I also have to say he seems to be quite highly motivated by money - otherwise why have all those condos?

  • I would have to disagree. While they appear to be stumbling around blindly trying to build a QX, there are some who think they are heading in the right direction. Carry on gentlemen, and do not let the naysayers discourage you.

    Right you are Shane. No blind stumbling. There are a number of photos of the QX available and with the combined brainpower of the group they should be able to build something that looks just like it.

    But after 8 years,

    You still can’t orser anything.

    If you go to the website it says someone will get in touch with you.

    He’ll of a business model

      Dear Andrea,

      From 2010 to 2018 you have developed three LENR reactions, the first Ecat witnessed in 2011 was based on Ni62 and Ni64 converting into Cu63 and Cu65, then there was the sequence of Ni58 > Ni59 > Ni60 > Ni61 > Ni62 used in the Lugano Ecat of 2014, the latest as of 2018 with the highest outputs, best stability and likely the safest for emissions are the Ecat QX and SK focusing on Li7, thought to transition to Be8 then two He4. (As described on the Ecat.com website – “Rossi Effect”).

      Each of the above LENR reactions is known to start up, run stable for an extended period with a constant energy output, then can be shut down.

      In each case conditions have been created where a relatively small input of energy triggers a nuclear process with an output of energy larger than that inputted.

      The surprise is that in each case, after the initial triggering only a small part of the structured material produces a reaction, then progressing steadily second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, with a stable level of nuclear reactions continuing to be produced on demand as they are triggered each time for month after month for anything up to a year.

      If the correct conditions were present at the start for a reaction, why did reactions not then take place immediately all at once all through the structured material?

      Thankfully LENR reactions seen so far are of a slow intrinsically progressive nature, we now have a future energy source with no possibility of a runaway nuclear event.

      The question is, how does this slow nuclear progression work? If the reaction was initiated in one location with neighbouring reaction site locations progressively triggered, expanding as a spherical shell wave front, there would be a low initial energy output with a geometric increase in the energy output through time, if the reaction sites started all over the external surface of a lattice and worked inwards in a shrinking wave front, there would be a high initial energy output that would diminish through time, or is it statistics where the probability of a reaction occurring is very low, that reactions take place randomly throughout the structured material at a constant rate over time.

      Is it possible that there is a linear mechanism, one where the initial reaction of an atom sets up the conditions for an adjacent atom to subsequently react in turn setting up conditions for the next in line? It is possible that atoms in an atomic lattice sequentially react one after another in a linear progression along a row, This linear progression would also relate to the ability to start up then shut down time after time with no change to the nuclear progression mechanism.

      There is the mechanism of how hydrogen in close confinement with the target atom in combination with forced resonance of nuclear states produces a reaction, but there may also be another mechanism whereby there is a linear progression of reactions spread out over time.

      In the Theoretical work, is there explanations for both mechanisms?

      Regards,

      Keith Thomson.

      KeithT:

      We are studying these issues,

      Warm Regards,

    Any thoughts from anybody???

  • I can describe something that will likely just add frustration but it may give some thought

    A v12 jag engine was misfiring from stress cracks in the plastic distributor CAP ,As I attempted to clean them "scrape the carbon lines out thinking it would help it ended up cracking / overheating the insulator of the spark plugs when I re-fired the eng.

    The cap I think was a slandered bakelite gray and the glue I have no idea....long ago - All I can think of for such a reaction related to this thread IS THE plastic from the hot spark between the carbon tracks jumping all over the inside of the pipe in use creating a type of plastic transform chemical bubble reaction to a primary from the opening and closing of small holes in the pipe. As a car distributor may have gained volts.

    in the past, the spark plug was always to blame as being faulty even though we made distributor caps from many forms of composites.

    You can also do this on a big scale with a sheet of wood with aluminum on each side, add fiberglass resin to 1 side of the aluminum. with a 4'x8' sheet as you separate the plastic opening the bubbles it will produce very high voltage.This may be something similar. BTW the plywood aluminum trick is not a joke... Have a ground strap at the table / plywood for the spark to jump to. The faster you pull it the larger the spark. IT can jump up to 3' ......Plastic....

    Hope this helps.

    1. Saul November 21, 2018 at 2:51 AM

      Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,

      After the experiment made last week which are the next important steps befre the presentation scheduled for January 31st?

      All the best,

      Saul

    2. Andrea Rossi November 21, 2018 at 8:27 AM

      Saul:

      In December we will have thoroughly contractually defined tests with two very important Customers.

      Warm Regards,

      A.R.

    3. Roger November 21, 2018 at 5:16 AM

      Dear Andrea:

      Besides Gullstrom amd Prof Vassallo did other scientists collaborate in your last experiment?

      Regards!

    4. Andrea Rossi November 21, 2018 at 8:25 AM

      Roger:

      There is one more that wants not to be cited. He is a teacher of Physicsin a major university of Japan.

      Warm Regards,

      A.R.

    5. Isabel November 21, 2018 at 7:56 AM

      Dr Rossi,

      Can you give all the data of the instruments you and your team used foe the experiments of last week?

    6. Andrea Rossi November 21, 2018 at 8:23 AM

      Isabel:

      This will be published in the paper with the description, results and observations about the experiment.

      Warm Regards,

      A.R.

  • I sure do not see any signs of Rossi backing off. If anything he seems to be pushing faster, and harder on everything. He has named some names, and I have no doubt Gullstrom flew there as he claimed, or that he has an anonymous Japanese prof working with him. I wonder how he is getting around all the regulatory, certification, radiation hazard issues raised here?


    His confidence level seems very high also.

  • Asbestos manufacturers all over the planet are getting sued by customers and former employees for not acknowledging for decades the risks that producing and using such material would bring. Nowadays asbestos is banned in many countries. What will happen to Rossi (if he'll still be around) and other LENR "players" once people still start noticing unwanted effects from the devices they purchased?

    1. Frank Acland November 21, 2018 at 9:30 AM

      Dear Andrea,

      If a potential customer is interested in your E-Cat generated heat service, but is not fully convinced of its validity, can they arrange with you to witness a private test.

      Many thanks,

      Frank Acland

    2. Andrea Rossi November 21, 2018 at 11:15 AM

      Frank Acland:

      Should I accept this I would receive several thousands of requests in a week…also from spies sent by competitors, or wannabe such. Our time is for our Customers, not for “not fully convinced” characters.

      We allow private tests only after the signature of a contract.

      Warm Regards,

      A.R.


    ... and I bet the contract includes a NDA which doesn’t allow a paying customer to talk about the “findings”.

  • Mainstream science claims that LENR is impossible so there is nothing to regulate.


    The powers that be are powerless until they officially admit the reality of LENR.

    Have you heard of EMC testing? Do you have reason to believe his SK would pass, with all the lovely gammas and strange radiation that is "thermalized". Do you believe he is in the process of getting certified, particularly after the cease and desist order in FLA? We had issues getting our instruments certified, and they are not even "nuclear reactors". Calling government safety bureaucrats "powerless" seems delusional.

  • Dear Andrea (Dr Rossi) : Like many, I have come to the conclusion that "eCAT Home" offers the world a potential tool to take we humans into what some call the GOLDEN AGE.

    I realize you and your colleagues have likely spent countless days and nights brainstorming roll out strategies, so I have hesitated to offer ideas, sensing you were confident you had now arrived at the optimum strategy.


    I have suggested that a partnership with Elon Musk to put eCAT home technology into the TESLA Powerwall product, would be most interesting and exciting - giving you access to Elon's world class production engineers, designers and marketing teams; and to manufacturing roll-out expertise. Has he approached you yet?


    You, Elon, the local licensee and the existing power companies, would share profit (revenue) from the eCAT Energy Mining using a blockchain strategy with your end licensees as miners.


    Energy would be mined in the home by individual Tesla Power Walls which would also allow the individual owner to put power back into the local grid. I also thought your larger systems would service a subdivision or town (+hospital or schools; pubic buildings).


    I believe getting the excess energy piped back out to the local area (village, town, city or state) could be best done by including the existing power companies in the process.

    You would demand (under their contract) they pass down to the end users (including those who have not yet purchased their own eCAT), the much lower cost of #LENR energy in this design. ie you would control the retail price.


    I'd like to see manufacturing of eCAT's being done (no matter how inefficiently) in thousands of new factories across the world each building for their nation - rather than centralizing manufacturing as we have been doing in China over the past 20 years.



    Best wishes

  • sam12 - since you are allowed to post on Rossi's blog and also get answers, maybe you can reach out to him what his opinion is on the process of operating and controlling his installed SK plants (e.g. the one from which he will live stream on Jan 31st) via internet in case there is no electricity (maybe not even a GSM/LTE network) because of power fails, cyber attacks, natural desasters etc... ? See Q&A on Rossi's blog below.

    Thx


    Rossi answered, that the Ecat could be useful in microgrid environments....


    1. Rodney Nicholson November 27, 2018 at 3:24 PM

      Regarding the following link I found by googling “First Utility operated microgrid cluster” as Rod Walton suggested:

      https://www.power-eng.com/arti…ed-microgrid-cluster.html

      The following quote from that link would seem to have huge significance to the marketing of Ecats:

      “Experts spanning from the Department of Energy (DOE) to MIT have identified microgrids as a necessary technology to enhance the resiliency of the electric grid from threats ranging from major weather events to cyber-terrorism. In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, for example, the Department of energy issues a report recommending microgrids as a way to mitigate such tragedies in the future.”

      To mitigate against ‘weather events’, accidents (Fukushima as one example), cyber-terrorism, and other threats, an ideal solution may be to build Ecat SK plants for each town or city of suitable size, distribute the power over the existing local power network, and dispense with the current huge generation plants and long distance transmission costs. That way a terrorist threat might shut down power to a city or two, but not the entire system.

      So the potential for cyberterrorism attacks on the electricity grid might, in addition to the cost advantage, be the single most persuasive argument for making a transition to local Ecat power generation?

      Rodney.

    2. Andrea Rossi November 27, 2018 at 3:33 PM

      Rodney Nicholson:

      Thank you for your insight: the Ecat could be useful in this sector.

      Warm Regards,

      A.R.

  • The Ecat, if it worked,

    Would be useful in every sector of human life, but it doesn’t, so it isn’t.

  • I think we should all address Rossi's claimed new customer as JM Products (his own company that produces nothing) until he provides proof otherwise. After what happened in Doral, he is insulting every last one of us if he does not identify his customer and have a representative from them confirm they are doing business with him.


    So until there is proof otherwise, Rossi's only customer is JM Products, as far as I'm concerned.


    Usually I'm not this cynical. However, he manipulated the entire LENR community and IH by trying to make us believe that the customer was some sort of subsidiary of Johnson Matthey when there was no relationship whatsoever. We cannot let him trick us again.
