I am not ready to answer this question,
This preliminar demonstration will be given to our Partners and it will be foundamental to decide the eventual scheduling of our work.
Any information related to it is, obvilusly, classified. When I say “Partner” I mean also our new allies with which we are preparing the massive production of the product.
Thank you for your wishes to our great team.
Let me describe how I think you will demonstrate the QuarkX:
You will sit on a platform high in the air. The platform is held in the air by five QuarkX jets and you are hovering above an enormous crowd, all staring at the platform. At the bottom of the platform is attached a flatscreen, faced to the crowd and showing life your smiling face. In between the five jets are attached five big loudspeakers. You will speak and your voice thunders over the crowd: ‘See I told you, the E-cat works!’ But they still do not believe you. A trembling voice yells: ‘The batteries will be empty soon, the thing will drop!!’ The crowd panics and tries to escape from the area under the platform. After two, three, four hours, you are still there, high in the air, still smiling and perhaps singing a song like ‘It’s in the air…’. Then the first gets a pain in the neck and bows his head, soon many follow, tired of looking at you on the platform and all bowing the head deep to release the pain and they mumble: ‘He is right, it obviously works’. When no one looks anymore you will fly to another place and another crowd and do the same, and the same, and the same. And then, finally the world is convinced. Amen. 😉
Dear Andrea Rossi,
You mentioned that the first demonstration will be to your “partners.” Are you referring to Hydrofusion and perhaps ABB (manufacturing partner), or are there even more?
Thank you and I hope you and your team’s hard work pays off!
Dear Mr. Rossi
You answered to one of the questions posed to you that Quark X will produce 1 MW of thermal energy. What would be a conversion ratio from thermal to electric, assuming you will be selling the Quark X for electric energy applications?
As I understand there is also a safety aspect of the Quark X being so small.
When the exact manufacturing size has been decided then you must find out how to put the quarks together parallel in clusters. If you go with an exchange system I guess it is easier for the customer/service organisation to exchange the different sized clusters ( a few standard configurations I suppose) than the individual Quarks.
I also suppose that the ratio (Electric output)/(Heat output) decides if the cluster is air cooled or water cooled. Maybe a water cooled system increases safety?
a) Are you still working with how many quarks there should be in one cluster (optimizing control loops for multiple quarks)?
b) Have some of your team members started to design smart exchangable clusters yet?
c) Will your first official multiple Quark X unit be water cooled?
Many of your blog readers are very impatient to see some e-cat products and you are often answering that a lot of work first has to be done. I realize that when you are coming close to production, several thousand questions/items have to be solved that are manufacturing related, but as I understand you and your team are working hard on the different items.
Dear Mr. Andrea Rossi.
I’m glad I started a discussion on the public display of your product.
it is important to me, and I see that this is important to all of your fans.
You keep us on “starvation rations” information.
We all believe in you, waiting for mass production, are now ready to buy E-Cat.
Please do not violating conditions F8 (I understand that this is important), share with us some facts, photographs, plans!
I believe that you will change the world for the better!
Dear Mr. Rossi,
in a former answer you said, that in the ecat QX you use titanium. I have several questions:
1. Do you replace nickel with titanium, or do you use both?
2. We know, that the nickel isotopes transmute to ni62. Did you observe titanium transmutations, too?
3. Is titanium essential for the direct production of electricity?
As always, thank you for your answers.
Caro Andrea Rossi:
You are right: it is useless to make other public tests before a product is ready. The complaints of the pathoskeptics will never end until a product massively distributed will close the door to any puppet paid to attack whatever you make, like, for example, the pseudo- scientist “Dr Pffft”, as you dubbed him.
Just make a product for us and forget the chatters .
If the ecat x will be demonstrating SSM live over the internet for the public audiences, will there be facility for sending in questions live online during the demo?
1- when we will be ready: I still am not able to make a scheduling, F8 pending
2- that would not be serious
Dear Dr. Rossi,
Also, one more small request:
Can you provide a photograph of some part of your facility and team, or the QuarkX, just your fans can have some idea of what the conditions of your work are like?
Dear Dr. Rossi,
Regarding commercial demonstration of the QuarkX:
1. When do you expect to make the demonstration?
2. Can you give probability for demonstration time frames? (e.g. demo within 6 months = x%, demo within 12 months = y%, etc.)
3. Will either the ECat or QuarkX be available for sale before the demonstration? (I am ready to purchase!).
With all support and warm regards,
2- a commercial presentation
4- will be long enough to make the audience get interested, not enough to make them fall asleep
5- yes, F8.
I sympathyze your impatience. I too am impatient.
I don’t think I will have the time to write a book, but two nice books have been written that I can cite:
“An Impossible Invention”, Mats Lewan ( Stockolm, 2015 2nd edition)
“The New Fire”, Vessela Nikolova ( Milan, Italy, 2nd edition )
Both available in English and Italian language.
You can contact the authors for further information ( Google “Mats Lewan an impossible invention” and “Vessela Nikolova the new fire” ).
Thank you anyway for your kind words.
Do you intend to write your story (a book) about your endevors? I think it is important that future generations have your written account on all the things that have happend, are happening and will happen.
Thanks on behalf of my children;)
Dear Mr. Andrea Rossi.
You could call the place and time of the next public appearance. When you’re ready to submit your product to the public?
We are waiting with impatience.
You can imagine that many followers of the E-Cat are interested in the idea of a public demonstration of the E-Cat QuarkX. A few questions on the matter, if I may:
1. Will the public demonstration be held only if the R&D on course is successful, and the factory is ready to produce E-Cat QuarkX reactors?
2. Will it be a scientific presentation, or a commercial presentation?
3. Will it be broadcast live over the Internet?
4. Will it be minutes, hours or days long?
5. Will it show the E-Cat QuarkX operating in self sustained mode?
Thank you for the link,
Thank you for these jewels.
Thermal, so far.
The replication of the effect has been made repeatedly around the world.
The E-Cat is a very sophisticated product.
Very interesting, thank you,
Hi Andrea! In the last month I never came to visit your blog because I was so upset for the recent disturbing facts about IH (an awful collateral effect of capitalism) that I was fearful to damage the community with improper comments! hehe
The good thing is that now I have a full month of messages of yours, Koen, and all the others to enjoy! To inspire you during your work, please take a look to these fantastic videos picturing the upcoming new Webb Space Telescope, right standing in its 6.5 meters full golden glory for the first time in a clean room at Goddard Space Center:
The third is a video of the mirror being rotated in front of dr. John C. Mather, Senior Astrophysicist in the Observational Cosmology Laboratory and senior Project Scientist on the James Webb Space Telescope:
See it in full screen mode! Very impressive! A nice view of a scientist standing in front of its creature! I think you have similar sensations next to your creature… if I figure a video shooting yourself in front of your little Cat rotating around its axes (solemn music trumpeting in the background), in comparison it sounds a little ridiculous :), but I think the man is great and the machine is way more important than the Webb!
Is the presciption for E-cat so complicated that no replicator has succeded to make it work properly?
Do you know yourself if it is something mysterious they have missed or are you also surprised?
you said that the volume of a 1 MW QuarkX will be around 100 liters (excluding heat sinks). Were you talking about 1MW of thermal or electric energy ?
God bless you
Thank you for the suggestion to us all,
I totally agree with you, in fact the demo will be made only when we will be close and ready for the market.
I agree upon every single word you wrote.
In parallel yes, in serial not yet.

Thank you for the link,
Hello dr . Rossi , the Russians are talking about you !
The end of the oil … Generator Rossi
Did you already run a few QuarckX in parralel or serial operation?
Do they behave lake a battery or is the output AC?
Dear Dr Andrea,
Please know that there is a rumour that ITER have a secret plan to buy up Quarks and use to produce free power so that they can have a COP>1 by 2035. Hehe.
Please make them first for us.
Will a public demonstration serve any good? I’m thinking it’s better to focus on getting it ready for the market:
I think there may be two outcomes of a public test:
1. Any advanced enough (like Alien 😉 ) technology will always be considered magic. If QuarkX is the real thing, the technology is far ahead of everyone. And any public demonstration of QuarkX will therefore be percieved as a magic trick.
2. Sceptics: Rossi is pulling a practical joke on all of us. And his public demonstration will therefore be concluded a Nice magic trick.
have you tried to put the E-Cat in a static magnetic field? As you may know, hydrogen goes in resonance at 43MHz for each tesla of magnetic field. This is the MRI main principle. Since the hydrogen atoms are in a peculiar state when put in a static magnetic field, this can vary the reaction rate, maybe the reaction rate can be made exactly proportional to the power of an RF pulse at 43*B MHz… If my theory is correct, you may be able to exactly and instantly control the reaction rate. Even without external heat…
Maybe it is worth a try…
And this message is also to all the potential replicators in the wild, so please do not spam this comment…
As I did with Eric earlier today for other similar issues, I can only say “no comment”.
Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
Tom Darden together with Cherokee Investments Partners have filed for 2 bankrupcies in February 2016. Their investors lost 23 million dollars. Obviously all money of the investors: the money just disappeared. http://www.postandcourier.com/article/20160208/PC05/160209426
It appears that Mr Darden customary collects investments in companies that end up dissipating the money of the investors with the excuse that the business is not gone well. With you they just found the wrong man: against any expectation, the E-Cat works and you really want to make an industry to produce it: you have broken their rules.
We will sustain you to the end.
Never give up.
My imagination is very active, my favorite fantasy is with Elan Musk IE Tesla Motors, with a new power supply to charge his cars as they run. An alternate favorite fantasy is that the home unit is certified.
1) Will we hear anything about the results of the closed door tests from you before July 5th of 2016 if they are positive (F8=1) ?
2) Have you practiced testing the Quark using the agreed procedures for certification yet?
3) Did it pass?
Thank you for sharing,
