Rossi: Progress on E-Cat SKL “Excellent”

There’s an encouraging comment by Andrea Rossi on the Journal of Nuclear Physics today in response to a question asking about what he is doing with the E-Cat SKL in the present time, and whether the coronavirus situation has caused delays.

Robert:
The Covid has caused delays, but not in the measure necessary to create relevant damages.
Preesently I am working in remote with all the Team and I work in a laboratory testing the Ecat to consolidate the reliability of the device.
I dare to define the progress excellent, both under the experimental point of view and under the theoretical point of view.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

Excellent is not a normal adjective that Rossi uses when asked about how his work is going. Typically he emphasizes the need to work hard and work through problems, etc. Maybe this is why he was prompted to make a promise that the presentation would be held in 2021.

Regarding the presentation, I recently asked whether it has been decided yet what will be shown when the presentation is held. He replied, “moreless yes”.

Q Hydrogen Announces Clean Hydrogen Power Plant

Thanks to ECW reader Jag for sending the following:
which in part says

“Clear hydrogen is produced by extracting hydrogen from water, like green hydrogen, but rather than using electrolysis to “zap” the hydrogen away from the oxygen, a new technology does so using water that is subjected to external influences coupled with extremely rapid variations in pressure, temperature and motion. There is no heat, and more importantly, no carbon used or generated in the process.
This allows for hydrogen production at significantly reduced cost, without the carbon impact of conventional methods”

On the website of the company (https://www.qhydrogen.com/about/) there is the further statement which says:
“Our newest commercial implementation in New Hampshire will be the world’s first power plant fueled by clean, economical Q Hydrogen. We will utilize the Q Hydrogen Generator, which will produce sufficient low-cost hydrogen to fuel the facility’s initial generating capacity of around seven megawatts. Someday, up to 100 megawatts may be generated at this facility on a total industrial footprint of approximately five acres”
All that intrigued me but I was not convinced until I looked at their team at https://www.qhydrogen.com/team/
The inventor Whitaker B. Irvin, Sr. has a whole series of patents granted and pending
One among the several top notch advisors is General (R) James T. Hill U.S. Army Retired Four Star General – He also checks out.
To me what it looks like is that this could be very low cost clean energy

Rossi Promises E-Cat SKL Presentation in 2021

Here’s a Q&A from the Journal of Physics yesterday that show a slight change in tone from Andrea Rossi

Dear Andrea,

a Happy Thanksgiving to you, your wife, Team Rossi, and all the partners in this fantastic journey.

It is certainly hoped that your recent sharing about “we are preparing something important” goes well as a symbol for the coming new year. Is the assessment of this important thing occurring relatively soon?

Sincerely & Respectfully,
Mason

Andrea Rossi

Mason:
Thank you for your kind wishes, that I am delighted to return.
Answer: surely within the next year.
This is a promise.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

It’s kind of unusual for Andrea Rossi to make a promise about an event connected with the E-Cat. He often expresses his hopes and predictions about in ways that give him some wiggle room, and we have often seen postponements over the years of predicted events.

Of course next year is a long time, and we be waiting until a year from now and beyond for the fulfillment of this promise. But I think he must have an added level of confidence about the E-Cat SKL in order to make such a statement.

In another comment today, Rossi responded to a question from Nils Friklund if the delay in the presentation was due to a client’s wishes, or the pandemic. Rossi replied:

Andrea Rossi
November 27, 2020 at 5:45 AM
Nils Fryklund:
No, the culprit is all of the Ecat SKL. I am thinking to file a suit against her for “obstruction of perfection”.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

I suppose this means that he will only present a product that he considers perfect.

E-Cat SKL Plasma ‘Emits Polarized Light’

Andrea Rossi doesn’t often provide details of what he is seeing in his experiments with the E-Cat SKL, but here is a Q&A in which he reveals something specific regarding the light that is emitted by the E-Cat SKL’s plasma.

ALINE

Dr Rossi,
did you find any evidence of the creation of clusters in coherence of phase as hypothesized in
http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
during your experiments and tests ?

Andrea Rossi
November 25, 2020 at 11:36 AM
ALINE:
Yes, we have discovered with polarizing lenses that the light emitted by the plasma is polarized: the emission of polarized light is very rare and is typical of lasers and electron some kind of accelerators; when our theoretical Team has discovered this fact, after repeated experiments, we deem this a signature of the creation of clusters of electrons in coherence of phase.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

According to Rossi, electron clusters play an important part in the mechanism of the E-Cat SKL, and now he speaks of them being in ‘coherence of phase”. Perhaps that can give some clues as to what is going on inside the E-Cat.

Mizuno Technology Announces Move to Commercial Phase

Thanks to David Nygren for posting the following in the Always Open thread.

Mizuno update 2020-11-26

MOVING FROM LABORATORY TO COMMERCIAL PHASE
Mizuno Technology, Inc. a Hokkaido based start-up, has now had its cold fusion results replicated independently, and more replications under way. Now we are developing a safe, controllable and powerful reaction to supply nearly unlimited heat to transform poor societies with alternative cooking fuel, heat for agriculture, space heating and clean water. We are moving from the lab to the commercial testing phase. Our mission is to use this technology to improve the lives of the poor and developed countries alike.

Rossi: “We Are Preparing Something Really Important”

I think most readers here are wondering what is going on now in Andrea Rossi’s lab. We have been told by him that there will not be a presentation this year, but possibly in the first quarter of 2021. The only vague details he has provided is that they are working on issues of reliability. Gerard McEk brought up this subject with a question on the Journal of Nuclear Physics:

Gerard McEk
November 22, 2020 at 10:24 AM
Dear Andrea,
A few weeks ago you said you possibly have a solution to make the Ecat more reliable.
Have you made any progress in the reliability or are you still working on that?
Thanks, kind regards, Gerard

Andrea Rossi
November 22, 2020 at 11:29 AM
Gerard McEk:
The work is in progress, and day by day we are eliminating the weak points.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

I was curious about the difficulty of the work they are involved in is, so I followed up:

Frank Acland
November 22, 2020 at 3:26 PM
Dear Andrea,

Glad to hear you are making progress. How difficult are the problems you have to deal with?

Andrea Rossi
November 22, 2020 at 4:18 PM
Frank Acland:
I do not see problems we cannot resolve. We are preparing something really important. The work is hard, the important is to stay calm.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

And in response to a question from Xavier Pitz about what level the E-Cat has reached on a scale of “too easy” to “insane”, one year after announcing it, Rossi replied, “The answer is: “insane”. And extremely expensive.”

“Making Coherent Matter Wave Beams and their Capabilities” (New Bob Greenyer Video)

Making Coherent Matter Wave Beams and Their Capabilities

Here is Bob’s summary of the document.

A technology made possible by science proposed and developed from the 1950s by both cold war sides now is codified in an awarded and valid US patent. When you have seen this presentation, you will have a new perspective on the E-CAT SKL, EVOs, Hutchison Effect and more.

In the YouTube video description is a link to a previously classified 1984 document by Tom Bearden, titled “STAR WARS NOW! The Bohm-Aharonov Effect, Scalar Interferometry, and Soviet Weaponization”
https://drive.google.com/file/d/14RU7QSptJZfyZsu_q6_v0yW6n6AX3bz0/view

Bob also references a patent filed by Lockheed Martin Corp. titled “SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR GENERATING COHERENT MATTERWAVE BEAMS, Patent No.: US9,502.202B2” https://patentimages.storage.googleapis.com/03/ce/8b/79a466f75c7f39/US9502202.pdf

Paper: “Future Interstellar Rockets may use Laser-induced Annihilation Reactions for relativistic drive” (Claimed COP of 1300)

Thanks to Curbina for posting the following comment and link in the Always On Thread

Leif Holmlid and Sindre Zeiner-Gundersen published a paper in Acta Astronautica that is about an experimental relativistic drive that has an efficiency of 1300 times the energy consumed by the laser used to estimulate the anhihilation-like behavior, and the kinetic energy produced. In other words, COP of 1300x!!!

https://www.lenr-forum.com/attachment/15055-1-s2-0-s0094576520303179-main-pdf/

Title of Paper: “Future interstellar rockets may use laser-induced annihilation reactions for
relativistic drive”

From the Abstract:

Here, a useful method for relativistic interstellar propulsion is described for the first time. This method gives exhaust at relativistic speeds and is a factor of at least one hundred better than normal fusion due to its increased energy output from the annihilation-like meson formation processes. It uses ordinary hydrogen as fuel so a return travel is possible after refuelling almost anywhere in space. The central nuclear processes have been studied in around 20 publications, which is considered to be sufficient evidence for the general properties. The nuclear processes give relativistic particles (kaons, pions and muons) by laser-induced annihilation-like processes in ultra-dense hydrogen H(0). The kinetic energy of the mesons is 1300 times larger than the energy of the laser pulse. This method is superior to the laser-sail method by several orders of magnitude and is suitable for large spaceships.

Rossi: ‘Very Advanced’ in Developing Product to Demonstrate

The big question that is on my mind, and I am sure that is on the mind of many other readers here, is when will we get the public presentation of the E-Cat SKL. Andrea Rossi had been saying earlier this year that it would be in 2020, but recently he has admitted that he is not ready for it.

I asked him this week what needs to be accomplished in order for the presentation to happen. He replied:

Andrea Rossi
November 11, 2020 at 1:21 PM
Frank Acland:
To have a reliable product: that’s all I need.
Warm Regards,
A.R.

From this response it appears that he does not yet have a reliable product, which makes one wonder, how far away is such a product. I followed up with another question:

Frank Acland
November 13, 2020 at 10:56 AM
Dear Andrea,

You stated recently that your presentation will occur once you have a reliable product.

a) How would you characterize your progress towards this goal?
b) When you make a presentation will it be of a commercial product, or an experimental prototype?

His response:

Andrea Rossi
November 13, 2020 at 2:06 PM
Frank Acland:
a) I think we are very advanced
b) I think it will be a commercial product
Warm Regards,
A.R.

It’s hard to know the exact state of things from brief comments such as these; Even though he states that they are ‘very advanced’ Andrea Rossi is known to be optimistic in his projections, so I am not building up any hopes for a presentation in the near future.

Interview: Fusion Researcher Lerner Contends There Was ‘No Big Bang’

Thanks to Gerard McEk for posting a link to an interview from the Asia Times with US physicist and founder of LPP Fusion, Eric Lerner. LPP Fusion is a company which is developing a process of nuclear fusion they call ‘Focus Fusion’ which they describe as a “Dense Plasma Focus device with aneutronic hydrogen-boron fuel”

The interview is dialogue between Eric Lerner and Jonathan Tennenbaum. This link is to the first part of four-part interview titled “The Big Bang Never Happened but Fusion Will.”

https://asiatimes.com/2020/11/the-big-bang-never-happened-but-fusion-will/

Here is a short excerpt from Lerner:

“Saying that the Big Bang theory is a well-confirmed theory is very much like saying that the emperor’s clothes are beautiful. It’s something that lots of people agree on because ultimately their jobs and income depend on it. But it’s not something that’s backed up by scientific evidence.”

“Whenever and wherever you look at what the Big Bang hypothesis predicts, and you compare with observations, then in almost every single case you get a mass of contradictions.”
