eCat News started as an effort to illuminate the extraordinary claims of Andrea Rossi. If true, the eCat would be one of the most important developments in modern history. Supported by a number of apparently credible scientists, the claims were worth a closer look. Credibility by association can only get you so far. Over time, for me, the socio-dynamics in play became the interesting factor in this story. eCatNews has served its purpose. Fascinating as it is, there are more productive ways to use our time. With thousands of comments and a community absorbed by slowly unfolding events, I am reluctant to close the site. For that reason, I keep it open. Unless something happens to change the eCat landscape, posts here will be a very occasional thing. I am not into spectator sports – particularly slow-motion car crashes. I encourage you all to move on. Do something that matters.

The following article, reposted with permission, was originally published on the Oilprice.com website. The context for lithium mentioned is in the battery and energy storage industry — but we know that it could also turn out to be a critical element used in LENR energy production also.

The following post was submitted by Axil Axil The overarching theme of this essay is to explain how neutrons are only transmuted from protons as a result of beta decay mediated under the control of the weak force. Nuclear decay requires the weak force and neutron production requires nuclear decay. Nuclear decay resulting in the […]

There is some interesting news concerning research into the EM Drive propulsion system — an invention of British engineer Roger Shawyer. Shawyer and other proponents claim that the EM Drive requires no propellant, but is able to convert electricity directly into thrust. This is something that is considered to be impossible by many in the […]
