    LOL. No conclusions can be drawn when you use monstrously excessive boundaries on normal, everyday input parameters.

    That is only for a few seconds, as noted. A horse cannot keep that up for an hour. The units here were kilowatt-hours (energy, not power). For that matter, I can produce 1 HP (750 W) for a few seconds on a stationary bicycle,…

    In fact, there is no news. there is already thousands of experiments, hundreds of papers, dozens of respected labs or top recognized experimentals who did the job.

    As you can see, there is no limit to denial.

    I wonder, how many thingamajigs Rossi can (supposedly) make in a day?
    He had limited time to choose the final version due to amazing improvements (20 W, 100 W, 1 kW, bigger, hotter, etc.), then he has to make enough for 40 MW, figure out how to control…

    Well,

    Yeah, he’s got 7 “Robotic” production lines up and running now, cranking out thousands of Ecats.

    That explains why the number of employees is between 0 to 1. Robots don't count as employees. It is robots, robots, robots, all the way down. Be thankful he does not have sentient newts doing the work. (See: Karel Capec, "War With…

    As meaningful as the “this is steam” video posted on one of the e-cat channels, which was not steam from an ecat operation at all. (Hilariously the video showed what has been missing from all the Rossi demos).

    This is easy to prevent. With an open cell, use ventilation to blow the gas outside. With a closed cell, use a recombiner AND a pressure release valve in case the recombiner fails. All cells should be placed behind something like…

    It is not so much the power, but the reaction rate that makes an explosion. A stick of dynamite and a cheeseburger have similar energy densities. It is more about how fast they burn.

    Though Il Dotore's claims are absurd,
    Axil and AA take his word;
    With control systems back,
    We 'babblers' say "Ack!"
    As their reasoning seems quite Bass "ack" word.

    I said what my preconditions are; a legitimate customer, and/or independent experts present, and running the show. Not going to happen though.

    Axil,

    A legitimate customer for starters, but he already said that will not happen. Only other thing that might make me think twice, were if there were independent experts present, and they had full access to everything. Better…

    I am not in a position to choose anything. I have no influence over the researchers. Most of them are dead, as I said, and it is very difficult to make dead people do things.
