The documentation of the ‘Strange Radiation’ tracks that seem to have been produced for the experiment reported at the recent Soshi conference, raises important questions about what exactly is SR, what could cause this phenomenon, what its effects might be, and what can be done to contain or shield them, if they are hazardous.
It would seem that if ‘Strange Radiation’ is indeed some kind of by-product of certain LENR reactions, that it would deserve careful study in terms of the possible effects on human health. T

An E-Cat World Reader has submitted the following post.
The 25th Russian Conference on Cold Nuclear Transmutation of Chemical Elements and Ball Lightning has proven to be a historic milestone in the documentation and universal acceptance of a seemingly ubiquitous phenomenon referred to over many decades by many names, including “strange radiation.” These enigmatic emissions produced by a variety of experimental setups — ranging from spark discharges, electrolytic cells, and now powder based “dry” nickel-hydrogen reactors — have been observed and written about by researchers spanning the globe. Nevertheless, searching for the papers and reports describing them could be challenging, especially considering all the required search terms: exotic vacuum objects, EVs, sub-luminal tachyons, micro-ball lightning, cathode spots, erzions, strange radiation, compact toroids, and several others. But now, due to breaking revelations from Alexander Parkhomov and a number of other brilliant Russian pioneers in the field of LENR, the presentations from a single conference may represent a treasure chest of information on these paradigm shattering particles. What has been openly shared may not only help us understand the mechanisms allowing for cold fusion reactions, transmutations, and excess heat production, but could completely change our views on physical reality and the sea of unlimited energy in which we all exist.
In the past certain individuals have been courageous enough to share their insights into this phenomenon with the world. One in particular that comes to mind is Kenneth R. Shoulders, already accepted by the mainstream world as the father of micro-electronics, who dedicated years of his life to producing what he called “exotic vacuum objects” or EVOs utilizing, among a variety of methods, spark discharges between a sharp cathode and various anodes. His papers that are filled with photographs, data, and ideas can still be found archived on various websites. All together, they represent a wealth of information. But now a well known replicator of nickel-hydrogen systems named Alexander Parkhomov has revealed the existence of perhaps an equally deep well of evidence and information. He has generated many thousands of track marks utilizing two different reactor types (a plasma electrolysis unit and a “dry” nickel-hydrogen reactor capable of producing significant excess heat), multiple different film materials (including polycarbonate, aluminum foil, and others), and multiple analysis techniques. The result is a fountain of evidence that proves beyond any doubt that LENR systems are capable of continually producing profuse quantities of “strange radiation” with properties that challenge existing physical concepts.
The potential of this revelation is far flung and varied: these particles while potentially proposing a modest threat to human health in certain circumstances may also allow us to gain a better grasp of the reactions taking place inside LENR reactors. Additionally, if we utilize the knowledge and experience of Ken Shoulders and a multitude of other researchers, we may be able to attract, guide, and collect them for us as an additional power source – increasing the output of LENR systems.
Stunningly, most of the presentations at this conference have yet to be translated into English and other languages, so there are many more potential bombshell revelations to come!
Below is a Google translated version of the slides that Parkhomov used in his presentation on strange radiation at the Sochi conference.
Here is the text of the last slide of the presentation which is actually in English:
Optimization of the design, application of more heat-resistant construction materials and reliable sealing allowed to achieve a 7-month duration of operation of the nickel-hydrogen of excess power up to 1 kW (COP up to 3.6)
1 g of Nickel provided the release of excess heat of about 4100 MJ, Such energy is released when 100 liters of oil products are burned.
During the processes occurring in nickel-hydrogen systems, changes in the elemental composition were found. The calcium content increased especially. Isotopic changes in nickel are insignificant.
Tremendous energy release with a low fuel mass and compactness of nickel-hydrogen reactors, combined with the absence of harmful chemical and radioactive waste and radiations opens up fundamentally new prospects for application in the energy sector, industry, transport and the utilities.
A few more details provided in note form by Bob:
Temperature was well over 1700 C
Not a solid/lattice
He just used pumped hydrogen,only feeding at around 1atm
Below is Bob’s video of Dr. Parkhomov giving his presentation:
Bob Greenyer is in Sochi, Russia, attending the 25th Cold Nuclear Transmutation and Ball Lightning conference and has posted the following video giving an overview of the program.
He mentions that Alexander Parkhomov will be presenting about a half-year test he has conducted and will apparently be reporting about an isotopic analysis he has conducted. There will be many other presentations also, including one by Godin who is part of the Deneum team.
Bob shows the program in the video below.
He also mentions that there are moves afoot, potentially in as little as one year, the Russian Federation will publicly recognize Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (or as they call it, Cold Nuclear Transmutation) as it an official science.
Sam posted a file on the Journal of Nuclear Physics which documents a complaint made against Andrea Rossi/Leonardo Corporation by the Florida Board of Professional Engineers (FBPE) in June 2018 because they believed Rossi was “providing engineering services without the professional license or certification required by Florida law”. Rossi was sent a Cease and Desist notice to stop providing engineering service.
The complaint stated that if Rossi was installing E-Cats in Florida, he needed a permit, and there had been no permit issued to him there.
The documents in the file show the correspondence between Rossi and the investigator for the FBPE which ultimately ended up with the case being closed based on Rossi’s response to the complaint.
Through the course of reading the documents some details are revealed by Rossi that he has not mentioned previously.
He states in one email: “Presently we do not have requests from Clients in Florida and this is the reason for which we are still unknown to your office, but as soon as we will have a request from Florida, I will comply with all the instructions contained in the letter that you mailed to me . . . Presently we have on course two important requests from two Clients: one in Illinois, one in California and in both cases there is an engineer certified in the due State that is taking care of the necessary permissions.”
Another thing that he mentions is that he had a “complicate surgery” in Italy on July 10th which would require him not to talk or read for 10 days. Later on he states that the surgery was a success and the pain was over.
All the documents in the case can be found at this link (thanks to Sam)
Rossi’s response to the document posted by Sam is this:
September 29, 2018 at 8:07 AM
A troll sent to the Engineer Association a claim saying I am making without authorization the profession of engineer.
The association of the engineers of Florida asked me to refrain from making so.
Upon their request, I certified that I never have offered services as a professional engineer and obviously that I never have made the profession of Engineer in Florida and never offered or will offer my services as a consultant of engineering . They closed the case after due investigation.
Gerard McEk asked Andrea Rossi a good question today on the Journal of Nuclear Physics and got a direct answer:
September 25, 2018 at 6:32 AM
I am not sure it has been asked, if so, I apologize:
Will your partner in business be introduced during the presentation in January 2019?
Thanks, kind regards, Gerard

There’s been a lot of speculation about who the partner might be, but I guess we should get used to not knowing who it is for quite a while. My guess would be that we won’t hear anything about who they are at least until the turbines start being manufactured, and we are apparently in the early stages of the R&D for building those E-Cat-driven turbines.
From what I have been able to gather, what will be presented at the January presentation (if it actually takes place then) is the demonstration of an E-Cat SK coupled with what Rossi states is ‘heat exchanging system that is working well’.
Rossi also stated today that the presentation would not be held in the factory of a client.
Reading Andrea Rossi’s recent comments on the current situation with the turbines and the partner, I have been trying to sort out in my mind what is going on with Leonardo. So I just sent Rossi my current thinking on what is going on. Here are my assumptions and his responses.
September 19, 2018 at 11:16 AM
It has been interesting to read your comments lately regarding your plans for using a turbine with the E-Cat SK. I think I am beginning to understand the situation a little better, but I would like to see if I am thinking correctly.
Are the following assumptions of mine correct – please correct me if I am wrong.
1. You have developed the E-Cat SK to what you consider to be a point where it is stable enough to be used in a commercial industrial product.
2. Your business/industrial partner agrees with you about 1.
3. The E-Cat SK needs to be combined with a turbine in order to operate in a stable, effective manner.
4. You personally are not an expert in turbines, but your partner is, and has the resources to develop a turbine that will work with the SK.
5. Leonardo and the Partner will work together to build a plant utilizing these turbines.
6. This plant will be built at your Partner’s existing facility.
7. The first plant will be installed at your Partner’s facilities to provide heat and electricity for their own operations.
8. Your presentation in January will be to announce to the world that you have a technology ready for industrialization, and you are ready to start working with prospective customers and making contracts.
Many thanks, and best wishes for your work.

3. not necessarily
So from this, I have to now think that Rossi’s partner is an engineering company, expert in building turbines. Possibly it was the partner who have been pushing the turbine solution, since they can see the possibilities and benefits where Rossi himself may not have been able to. The partner will probably be thinking first and foremost of how the E-Cat can benefit themselves by providing cheap energy for their own uses. and they will probably have been able to work out a very advantageous deal for themselves, and in sales going forward.
Also, although the E-Cat SK may be ready to produce, the turbines may take some time for designing and testing before they are ready to be put into practical action, and to be sold on the market. Rossi says that the SK does not necessarily need to be coupled with a turbine so there may be other plant designs under development. There does seem to be a big workload ahead for this thing to start taking off. I’m still not sure what to expect for the January demonstration.
Andrea Rossi was asked recently on the Journal of Nuclear Physics if he was still working on the jet engines, and he replied, “The work on jet engines is in progress.” Today there was another Q&A on the subject:
September 17, 2018 at 8:44 AM
Dr Andrea Rossi,
Can you tell us if the supply of the 40 MW heat will be generated by means of multiple gas jet kind of turbines?
Thank you if you can answer,
September 17, 2018 at 9:55 AM
Perhaps jet turbines are required to get rid of the large amounts of heat generated by the SK E-Cats. Rossi has also stated that the 40 MW plant he is building for a customer will be built and installed in “lots”, in other words will not be all installed at once. So maybe this means that one turbine will be built and installed at a time. Or perhaps a few at a time.
After Andrea Rossi and Industrial Heat famously split following the settlement of their litigation, Rossi quite quickly alluded to a new ‘partner’ who was assisting him with his work. He has provided very little information about this partner, or the nature of its relationship with Leonardo, but it seems to be very important in terms of bringing the E-Cat into the commercial real.
I have been asking some questions about this partner as we now seem to be moving into an important phase of the E-Cat’s development. Here are some Q&As from the Journal of Nuclear Physics:
September 10, 2018 at 10:51 AM
Congratulations on the decision to go with the E-Cat SK for industrialization, and best wishes for success with this new project. Do you now have to find investors to raise funds for the industrialization process?
September 10, 2018 at 12:08 PM
We already found the right Partner.
September 14, 2018 at 8:15 AM
You have stated that your partner is mainly an industrial partner. Does this mean that they are helping you to prepare for the mass production of your E-Cat SK reactors?
September 14, 2018 at 10:33 AM
September 14, 2018 at 11:38 AM
Thank you for your response about the partner. Can you say in what ways is your partner helping you:
a) Providing expertise of persons with manufacturing experience?
b) Providing building space in which you can build your E-Cats?
c) Providing equipment with which to build the E-Cats?
d) Providing other financial resources to support the industrialization?
September 14, 2018 at 12:46 PM
Of course, this all needs to be confirmed, but if true, it sounds like he is being backed up and supported in many important ways by this partner. He said that they were involved in the recent SK testing and their response was ‘positive’. For a company with significant financial and engineering resources to be on board with manufacturing E-Cats, they have to be convinced it is real and a worthwhile investment. For Rossi, it is ideal not just to have financial resources behind him, but industrial ones too, and not least, a location already in place where they can build his plants.
For many years now Andrea Rossi has been working towards commercialization of the E-Cat. When he introduced his invention with Sergio Focardi in early 2011 he demonstrated a low temperature model which was used in the first shipping container plant that was demonstrated later that year. Soon after that came the ‘Hot Cat’, a higher temperature model of the E-Cat which was the basis of the plant that ran in the 1-year test in Doral, Florida from 2015-2016. And while he was working long hours to keep that plant operating he began work on a new version of the E-Cat which became the plasma-based QX reactor which was introduced at the Stockholm presentation in November 2017. That QX ran at 20 Watts, but has since developed into the E-Cat SK, which Rossi states now is twice the size of the Stockholm model, and is rated at 10 kW.
Now it’s the end of 2018, and Andrea Rossi says now he says he has settled on this particular model of the E-Cat to go to production with. Should we expect Rossi to change his mind again, and come up with yet another iteration of the E-Cat to build, test and develop? We can’t say for sure it won’t happen, but personally I don’t expect it to change now. Rossi is not getting any younger and I sense he feels he has to make a move now if he is to accomplish his goals in the commercial realm within his working lifetime. I think it is now E_Cat SK or bust.
I personally think we now are moving into a new phase of the E-Cat story. For many years now Andrea Rossi has been working solo, or with a very small team of assistants. Most people either haven’t heard of him or if they have, have dismissed him as either delusional or fraudulent — thus his profile has been relatively low.
I believe Rossi is an extremely hardworking and accomplished inventor and engineer, and that the E-Cat as a remarkable device that works very well. However, I don’t think that necessarily guarantees Leonardo Corporation will succeed commercially. If he really does start building and installing E-Cat SK plants, then I expect he is going to get a lot more attention from all kinds of areas. If he is selling energy cheaper than competitors he will certainly get their attention. He will get the attention of potential customers looking to cut their energy bills. He will get the attention of scientists who will try to figure out how he is doing what he is doing and they will want to know if he is still carrying on some kind of fraud. As the word spreads he will get the attention of people in the media, and government who will wonder what this will mean for future energy production. Surely people will be wondering if the E-Cat actually works by a previously unknown method, is it safe? Competitors in the energy industry will certainly be asking this question as they consider what a cheaper alternative will mean for their business.
I can’t predict what will happen going forward, but I think that if the E-Cat plants work well, then there will be a new set of challenges facing Andrea Rossi and Leonardo Corporation, which I would expect they are anticipating. From a business point of view you obviously need attention if you want to make sales, but for many years Rossi has taken great efforts to ensure secrecy surrounding the E-Cat, and has been very successful in this effort so far. With a commercial campaign ahead it is going to be harder for him to work in peace and quiet and avoid a much greater amount of scrutiny.
