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.
He just edited his post within less than 5 minutes after its initial creation.

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.
Then we might see the promised QuarkX public demo within the next weeks, which was delayed just because of the lawsuit
What about IH's countersuit?
Please calm down.
Nothing was hijacked!
Just look at the escalating aggressive language of some participants in this thread.
And then think about whether such posts of those participants are actually useful for this discussion.
Emotions are cooking these days...
Yes, it looks like a typical advert from such said "dubious" advert networks.
In my view Frank has it totally exaggerated by placing adverts on each free space of his site. I'm visiting it only with an adblocker.
At least he could stick with serious advert networks like google adsense. But that's another topic.
Hacking a forum[...]
As I understood, there was no hack or attack.
ECW was/is (?) simply using a dubious advertisement network which displayed sometimes a picture or animation of a "microsoft windows style" system-dialog, warning the user that his computer was infected by a computer virus/malware (and of course how to fix that by buying the super duper anti-virus...).
Nothing else. It was this post here: The Playground

Paradigm shift in DNA research:Quote
DNA Replication Has Been Filmed For The First Time, And It's Not What We Expected
"It undermines a great deal of what's in the textbooks."
The real-time footage has revealed that this fundamental part of life incorporates an unexpected amount of 'randomness', and it could force a major rethink into how genetic replication occurs without mutations.
"It's a real paradigm shift, and undermines a great deal of what's in the textbooks," says one of the team, Stephen Kowalczykowski from the University of California, Davis.
Yes, easy to make huge profis if you know what you do.
Switzerland will start an official stock exchange based crypto-fund soon. This will pump up the market capitalization by another few billions of $.
That should be treated with caution!
At the moment there are so many ICOs (initial coin offerings) collecting large amounts of money in form of crypto currencies, and only very few of them will have a real world applications and benefit.
At least their website looks like scam.
There is another technology called IOTA (for internet of things) which is not using the heavy and slow blockchain technology, but directed acyclic graphs (called "tangle") for building the decentralized platform for micro-transactions necessary in the IoT world. It can be used for various IoT applications, also smart energy systems.
Ja, ich hatte echt die Hoffnung, dass mit me356 jetzt endlich mal stabile und reproduzierbare Experimente Einzug halten, die wissenschaftlich zweifelsfrei nachweisbar und wirtschaftlich nutzbar exotherme Energie freisetzen.
Leider wieder ein Schuss in den Ofen...vorerst.
Genau das ist ja das Problem. So lange keiner einen "Bauplan" (= Paper mit Versuchsaufbau und Protokoll) für ein Experiment liefern kann, das von jedem Physiker nachgebaut werden kann und den gleichen Effekt erzielt, so lange wird es auch keiner ernst nehmen (gewissermaßen verständlich, so lange sind es halt nur bloße Behauptungen).
Ich weiß nicht, man sollte da nicht zu viel reininterpretieren.
Wenn Namen wie NASA und Airbus fallen, werden viele vielleicht einfach erstmal nur erstaunt sein und abwarten was noch so kommt.
Siehe EmDrive. Jahrelang nicht ernst genommen, bis sich plötzlich die NASA zu Wort meldete. Dann war das Erstaunen groß.
Kann schon sein, dass der ein oder andere Experimental-Physiker in seiner "Freizeit" im Labor was aufgebaut hat. Aber ich glaube große Summen an Forschungsgeld fließen da nicht rein.
Ja, mit einem Test bei me356, mit COP >= 10, würde die Welt jetzt anders aussehen.
Das würde alle Grundlagen völlig verändern und sämtliche wissenschaftlichen Gegenargumente schlagartig außer Gefecht setzen (-> "es gibt kein reproduzierbares Experiment").
Hoffen wir, dass er demnächst sein System ans laufen bringt und sich nicht herausstellt, dass er nur seine Messinstrumente an sein System angepasst hat.
Wirklich mal ein sehr sachlicher Artikel, der alles schön zusammenfasst, ohne dabei auf die positive oder negative Seite zu kippen.
Ein Lob an den Autor
Ich frage mich, wie solche Systeme, bei denen niemand genau weiß oder erklären kann, was genau im Innern abläuft, jemals zugelassen werden können
In Deutschland bzw. der EU sicher nicht. Eventuell in anderen Ländern.
Bei solchen Geräten wird es ähnlich sein, wie mit Nahrungsmitteln:
Es muss vor der Zulassung nachgewiesen werden, dass die Inhaltsstoffe nicht schädlich sind.
In den USA z.B. ist es umgekehrt. Dort darf erstmal alles verkauft werden, bis Beweise zur Schädlichkeit vorliegen.
