The results presented here indicate a source of heat energy was measured that is not chemical in origin.
This measurement and conclusion are in general agreement with those of Arata and Zhang  and Ahern
. Given the importance a source of high specific energy has for space technology, this work indicates
that additional research should be pursued. If future work is better funded, calorimetry should be used
instead of thermometry to measure the heat power.
An odd new video of an allegedly "me356 Test" with a very thin reactor tube (reminds E-cat QX?) was released these days (yesterday?).
Unfortunately no additional information was added. Maybe me356 can confirm that it is made by him?
Were some representants of major and well known companies attending the demo?
Seems like the Press release was not issued by Rossi or Leonardo Corp:Quote

I did not make that release and I have not idea about who generated it.
I stick on my position. Problem is that under a journalistic point of view LENR is ostic to digest, let alone Rossi effect.
Just keep in mind that we did not make press releases and we are not going to do any of the sort before the test is done.
Probably the journalist that wrote this article has taken information from this blog and elaborated it in a journalistic feature.

I enabled you! Now you should be able to post. Welcome!
But for you? You will get higher confidence in LENR. But that is all.
Maybe for you the realitiy of LENR is obvious, because you work on it day by day.
For (the most of) us it is still completely in question whether LENRs exists at all. We had and saw many disappointing events and unclear results in the past.
Seeing proper calorimetric measurement results by a trusted third-party like MFMP would give many of us so much pleasure and simply confirmation that we did not waste all that time following this.
Even without being able to buy such a device yet.
I don't want to make pressure on you and your work, but please keep that in mind. Maybe you are routine-blinded
I thought this was big news. Enough so maybe to make it into some of the standard online tech/science sites, i.e. Pop Sci. Sci Am, Science Digest, etc. Nothing though...so far. Yes, it is just a patent application, but this is NASA! They even make an effort to avoid saying LENR. Nothing stopping this from being reported on.
I thought that too, but even within the LENR community this is facing very less interest.
Even at ECW, where they usally disassemble and sniff each fart of Rossi in super prolonged discussions, the post covering this paper has not even 20 comments
Guess this is too scientific and unspectacular for the general reader.
Seems to be fresh out the oven!
Maybe of interest: In the ECW comment section me356 just wrote that 2 years ago he shared informations of his first excess heat generating reactor with MFMP.
Bob Greenyer replied to that with a link where a full description and possible signs of excess heat are documented:
me356 and Bob Greenyer claim that no one else has ever tried to exactly replicate this approach.
Looks like everything me356 did since then "only" was studying, optimization and exploition of the effects seen in this experiment?
Sorry, it was me moving the posts into a dedicated thread. Before it was off topic in the Rossi vs. Darden thread.
Shane D. thanks for the notice to the interview. I'm visiting ECW only once a week at the moment.
Just for completeness here the interview by Frank Acland:
LOL! Suhas now suddenly revoked his offer to get his reactor tested by MFMP:
Hmm, is this the reaction we may see in "LENR"? It's still "simple fusion" but without neutrons?
When the first purchases will come, we will also have the first opinions from the buyers and we will could have an idea of the reactor's validity.
That is exactly what we are waiting for since years!
But everytime an ecat-generation is mature enough to go into mass production Rossi suddenly invents a revolutional improvement which would make the older generation totally obsolete.
So let us hope Rossi is not finding another improvement which needs another X years to be ready for production. And of course then it would be waste to put the previous generation into production and sell it as long as the next generation is under development...
The tech giant and a leading US fusion company develop a new computer algorithm that significantly speeds up progress towards clean, limitless energy
Google and a leading nuclear fusion company have developed a new computer algorithm which has significantly speeded up experiments on plasmas, the ultra-hot balls of gas at the heart of the energy technology.
Tri Alpha Energy, which is backed by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, has raised over $500m (£383m) in investment. It has worked with Google Research to create what they call the Optometrist algorithm. This enables high-powered computation to be combined with human judgement to find new and better solutions to complex problems.
Working with Google enabled experiment’s on Tri Alpha Energy’s C2-U machine to progress much faster, with operations that took a month speeded up to just a few hours. The algorithm revealed unexpected ways of operating the plasma, with the research published on Tuesday in the journal Scientific Reports. The team achieved a 50% reduction in energy losses from the system and a resulting increase in total plasma energy, which must reach a critical threshold for fusion to occur.
The "believers" and "followers" completely gloss over the fact that Ecat technology has never worked independently of direct involvement of the Ecat people. And, in my opinion, it never will.
Maybe you can annually "rent a Rossi" as bundle when buying an ecat for your basement
He will start and stop the reactor by a simple phone call and estimated travel time of 1 - 2 weeks
Just moved the discussion about betting for or against LENR into this dedicated topic, because I guess it could become something of interest
So please go on here.
Perhaps it comes with a higher "status" (THH is a "professional"). I cannot find the setting.
This "rank" has nothing to do with the "user group". The user "rank" is just a name you can assign to a specific amount of forum postings. Has nothing to say.
THHuxleynew has not more rights or permissions than you.

New interview of Rossi by Mats Lewan:
In the settlement between Rossi and his US licensee IH, Rossi got the license back together with all E-Cat equipment and materials, while none of the parties will have to pay damages to the other. Getting the license back was his top priority all the time, Rossi explains in this interview.
Regarding successful replications by IH:Andrea Rossi wrote:
During the discovery phase, emails from Darden were provided and made public, where Darden himself confirmed to have replicated our process successfully. We also have testimonials from persons who have assisted at such replications. Woodford [Investment Management] assisted at one of those replications, after which it invested USD 50M in Industrial Heat, even before the [one-year 1MW] test started in Doral [Miami], at a time when IH obviously had nothing but our IP in its portfolio.
Regarding the "empty reactor" test:Andrea Rossi wrote:
Darden has said lots of things that he has never been able to prove. What he assures doesn’t exist. I always made experiments with reactors charged by me, or by me in collaboration with Darden. Never with reactors provided to me as a closed box, for obvious reasons.
Mats seems to be positive about the latest developments and is thinking about his New Energy World Syposium which was cancelled last year:Mats Lewan wrote:
Noting this I have also started investigating the timing for relaunching the energy conference I proposed in 2016—the New Energy World Symposium, addressing the consequences of LENR based technologies for industry, society, and finance.
It looks either old or amateurish, not like a national geographic documentation.
