Rossi-Blog Comment Discussion

  • BTW: What happened during the Doral "1MW-Reactor" incident? What was the "incident"?

    Was it when somebody (partners/investors) realized that the plant wasn't producing more energy than that was use to feed it?

    Yes, that's correct. And Rossi sued than the partner/investor (Industrial Heat LLC).

    Was a long ongoing story, including the deposition of statements under oath.

    Than, just before it went in front of a jury, they settled.

  • You've got to hand it to Rossi, he's diabolically clever in manoeuvring IH to cough up the readies. Maybe there is still a slim chance he will come up with a working reactor if he's all that clever? One can only hope when little else is bearing fruit. Maybe his little blue box contains a plasma-driven miniature R20? More likely just more hot air but it's entertaining and good for a laugh at least. Good old Rossi!

    Hi Dr. Rossi,

    I’ve decided to organize a recorded, round table Skype call with 4 or 5 of the 84,000 scientists who have read your paper on ResearchGate.org. I’m curious to know what all the excitement is about from the scientists’ perspective.

    The subjects I’d like the scientists to discuss during the meeting are:

    1. Their overall opinion of the paper

    2. The accuracy of the concepts and math in the paper

    3. An explanation of the paper in terms that can be understood by non-physicists

    To your readers: I am looking for highly qualified scientists who have an account on ResearchGate.org that have read and understand Dr. Rossi’s paper: E-Cat SK and long-range particle interactions. More details and contact information are in this new video

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

    I have put a link to this new video at the beginning of my video: “Summary of Andrea Rossi’s E cat The Mother Of All Black Swan Events” at https://theRossiEffect.org. I've determined that approximately 25% of the viewers of the Black Swan video are scientists with accounts on ResearchGate.

    Good luck with the current tests, Mike

  • Perhaps the reason can be determined why RG, which supposedly has “real time” reads counting, used to report increases in reads every hour, and now only deposits around 300 to 400* new reads once every 15 days or so to the sLuRPI paper counts.


    * The equivalent of almost 1/2 of all reads to date of the Levi et al “An Indication of..” paper are added about every 15 days to the sLuRPI paper, in one chunk.

  • LENR Forum's own Mark U asks fascinating technical questions on JONP, prying important information from Inventor Rossi. You have to analyze the nuances of Rossi's response to grasp the true meaning.

      Dear Andrea,

      I recall your excitement as the QuarkX was developed even while you were engaged in the Doral test. What made the QuarkX qualitatively different, it seemed to me, was the focus on plasma phenomena. This has continued into the Ecat SK and now Ecat SKL. Yet your previous Ecats like the HotCat worked, without seeming attention to plasma phenomena. So I have four questions which display my ignorance.

      1) In your opinion, was plasma in the vicinity of the (pre QuarkX) old Ecat fuel wafer critical for its operation?

      2) Is it fair to say with the Ecat SK/SKL that the plasma affects reactions in the solid fuel wafer, and the solid fuel wafer affects reactions in the plasma, in a feedback mechanism?

      3) Does the energy producing reaction(s) in the Ecat SKL occur in the fuel wafer or the plasma or both (perhaps increasingly so in the plasma of the SK and SKL)?

      4) Does the plasma somehow serve to offload thermal stresses from the fuel wafer?

      You may not be free to answer some of these, but in any case, thank you in advance!

      Mark

  • Brilliant comment on JONP. Rossi's own special material that never existed before has no name.

    How does he ask his crew to make more? How do you add an unnamed material to the BOM?

    At least call it Unobtainium, or Bullshitium. Both names are valid.

    Can we have a contest to name Rossi's material? I'm surprised that hasn't started yet on JONP.

  • I doubt the material is of the exotic kind. It's probably a new composite material to achieve a particular functionality Rossi desires. The combinations and permutations are almost endless. He would name the particular part of the ecat - with the new material - by its function, not by its novel material makeup.


  • Imaginarium.

  • Some interesting comments from

    A.R. Make of them what May.


    1. 1. When will you name the date of the presentation a) in a month?
      b) after 3 months b) or even later?

      Sakharov’s collaborators recall Sakhrov’s astounding intuition, which failed him only once: he believed that hot fusion was promising.

      Your intuition has found a more reliable solution.

      I wish you and

      Your team continued success.

      Dear Dr Rossi,

      You mention that your E-Cat SKL still has issues with less than 80% reliability.

      When multiple SKLs are used in unison does the reliability improve, or do they like to sing in harmony?

      Best regards,

      Iggy

      Iggy Dalrymple:

      When we will sell them they will have 100% of reliability, independently from the assembly.

      One question please, do you think that the COVID restrictions will be soon lifted, and that you can normaly proceed with the tests of the SKL?

      Kind Regards.

      I hope so, but what I know is what everybody is listening and reading in the news media.

      The situation seems to recover, the numbers are improving for good. Let’s hope.

      Dear Andrea Rossi,

      I am very happy to hear that SKL now works as expected except for some

      remaining reliability issues.

      Some questions:

      1. Is present total reliability still below 80% of expected?

      2. Occasional issues at the startup?

      3. Occasional issues at switch off?

      4. Occasional switch off during normal operation?

      5. Occasional switch off due to changing external conditions?

      I understand if you cannot answer at this moment.

        Dear Andrea,

        Regarding the different properties of the SKL at this moment, can you give us some words like: Excellent, good, OK, can be improved, must be improved to these:

        a. COP

        b. Reliability

        c. Stability

        d. Ability to integrate

        e. Prospects for commercial application

        f. Fool proof: Resistance against wrong usage

    and no to the rest.

    So where is the problem

    that reliability is below 80 percent.

    I will ask A.R.

    Sam - what is your rationalisation for why Rossi abandoned:

    • his hot-cat (tested reliable by those Swedes in multiple tests)
    • his previous e-cat (proven reliable in large-scale industrial test and that he claims he spent millions of dollars in Court fees to preserve the IP for)


    For this < 80% working new device.


    We, the non-Rossi-fan observers, can answer this quite simply: none of these devices have ever worked. And Rossi's court case was because he thought he could lie his way into getting a $10M payment from IH, and even if not pursuing this case was the only way he could make good PR out of the fiasco which was his devices not working.


    How do you make sense of the entire history of abandoned e-cat development? You do realise, right, that any one of these e-cats, if it worked as claimed, would be a major disruptive technological advance and gain Rossi instant fame and money? It would not matter that it was not productionised, that it was not 100% reliable. As long as it could be made to work in prototype form when tested by reputable independent testers Rossi's financial and reputation problems would be forever gone.
