    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Don’t you think that the fact that the meson B decays into the lepton Tau instead of Muon puts in crisis the so called Standard Model?
    Are you able to answer?

    Dear Andrea,

    As you well know, I’ve been following your work for quite some time now. Informally speaking, it’s easy to make a comparison (but comparisons are odious!) between your efforts and those of other past innovators in technology: Fulton, Marcon,i and Edison, just to name the first that come to mind.
    But in the past few days I have been reading Marc Raboy’s huge biography of Guglielmo Marconi, and I must say that a parallel evolution between Marconi and yourself is not just a facile figure of speech. There are many similarities between his modus operandi and yours, and I will leave it to curious readers to read the book and find out by themselves.
    But there is a huge difference: Marconi was able in a very short time to build up a viable and successful corporation, and encountered very little resistance (not to be confused with opposition, which he got plenty of, on patent and personal grounds) to his work.
    You, on the other hand, have been dealing with a continuous state of resistance at every level, from personal to corporate, for a score of years, and we might very well say about you what the Greek said to Primo Levi in «The Truce»: “There is always war”.
    So, why have things turned out this way? And must they always be this way?
    This morning, a friend brought to my attention a short notice by Huw Price, Bertrand Russell Professor of Philosophy at Cambridge, on AEON, available here:
    https://aeon.co/essays/why-do-scientists-dismiss-the-possibility-of-cold-fusion
    You will have no difficulty identifying the picture that appears at the top of Price’s article. And I think you will find his ideas fairly compelling.
    There are other factors, to be sure. This is not 19th Century England, where if you knew the right persons you could get a lot done in little time – not that connections don’t matter today, but the level of complexity we deal with is much higher than it was for the Victorians.
    But what Price seems to indicate is that today, all debate suffers from the need to be attached to a “discourse-correct” paradigm: if you talk politics, you must be politically correct, if you talk science, you have to be within certain parameters of formal “respectability” which have little to do with proving a hypothesis through the scientific method.
    Censure is no way to establish scholarship or science. Not so long ago, a person could be appointed to a full professorship on merit alone, even without a higher education degree. Today, nobody will even begin to listen to you if you don’t have a PhD and an appropriate number of publications in a peer-reviewed journal co-authored with another twenty people you haven’t even met personally. And so on.
    I’m not saying that formal guidelines are a bad thing, far from it, but shouldn’t we keep the result in mind, at least in the back of our heads – look for the forest and forget the trees?
    I wish you the very best of luck for the coming months.
    Henry

    DvH:
    Both are advancing. Besides, what is “vague” to you, is not vague to me.

    Arjen:
    None of both.

    Dear Readers:
    From Karl Poehlmann (kpoehlmann@ieee.org we received the following comment, lost in the spam:
    Dear Dr Rossi,
    Please find here an interesting update related to the solar energy:

    Warm Regards,

    Hello Mr. Rossi
    we can see that you spend an awful lot of time working on your QuarkX – device (besides the struggle in court). Maybe i lost track of details, but what exactly is the benefit of QuarkX versus the 1MW container-based machine? Both target industrial market – maybe a device for home-use comes later.
    Wouldn’t it be MUCH more profitable (albeit not so exciting) to spent much more effort on marketing the 1 MW device instead of spending month after month with development-works on a device which seems still a little ‘vague’ ?
    Greetings
    DvH

    Dear Andrea

    As you wrote you are working hard on the theory.
    Can you advise if you understand every part of the theory but have difficulty in writing a solid understandable scientific based theory, or are you still in the dark about some of the processes? If the latest, can you name the issues that are still not understood without going into detail?
    Thanks for all your hard work.

    kind regards Arjen

    Gerard McEk:
    1- no new kinds of tests, just marching toward Sigma 5, but with more attention to the theoretical bases
    2- yes
    3- yes
    4- I prefer not to comment on this
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Samuel:
    Yes.

    Madeline:
    Thermometers, thermochamber, spectrometer, flowmeter, gamma rays detector, wattmeter, plus the usual parafernalia.
    Warm Regards,

  • Andrea Rossi

    JPR:
    Yes, this week will be focused exactly on this issue, collecting all the data we have now ( many ).
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Gerard McEk

    Dear Andrea,
    It must come as a relieve that you can spend some time on the QuarkX’s again. Obviously the tests went on while you were occupied by the litigation work, so it didn’t cause too much delay in the development, I hope.
    1. Now you can spend some more time on the QuarkX’s, can you perhaps tell us what type of additional tests you are planning to do?
    2. Is it related to the theory you are developing simultaneously?
    3. One of te most difficult issues with LENR is the lack of radiation, while transmutation and/or apparent fusion seem to take place. Do you think you can explain this in your developing theory?
    4. No doubt you are aware of the work of prof. Holmlid at al. He found that irradiating ultra dense hydrogen with a green laser produces al lot of energy, but he has detected also muons. Have you ever tried to detect these as well?
    Thank you for answering our questions.
    Kind regards, Gerard

  • JPR

    Update? Are you binding the theory with the experiments?

  • Madeline

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Can you give us a listing of the instrumentation you are using to measure the performance of the QuarkX?
    Cheers,
    Madeline

  • Samuel

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    When you will make the presentation of the QuarkX after the end of the litigation on course, will you make a worldwide streaming for all the duration of the demo?

  • Andrea Rossi

    L.E.:
    Very well, we are approaching the mythical Sigma 5, I am very satisfied about what I saw today.
    Important events I can see in the horizon.
    Warm Regards,

  • L.E.

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    How is going your “free day” dedicated to the QuarkX?

  • Andrea Rossi

    JPR:
    This week the work for the litigation is expected to be less than usual, after the extreme intensity of the last two months and I will take advantage of this fact to work hard on the theory and the experiment of the QuarkX.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Peter Gluck:
    Thank you for your link,

  • Andrea Rossi

    Hermes:
    Yes, next week I will focus on theoretical issues and on the QuarkX mainly. The discovery phase of the litigation has been completed and now I can focus again on my job, for a while.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Hermes

    Dr Andrea Rossi:
    is the next week supposed to be less engaging for the litigation and more for the QuarkX?

  • Andrea Rossi

    B.:
    I made 20 hours of personal depositions in English, doing well.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    JPR:
    Still on ur way toward Sigma 5. Today I could work pretty well with the QuarkX.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Pekka Janhunen:
    Thank you for the information.
    Interesting, but very audacious.
    I am not able to tell you how many probabilities this theory has to be experimentally proven.

  • Dear Andrea,
    Are you familiar with John Fisher’s polyneutron theory of LENR, http://www.lenr-canr.org/acrobat/FisherJCoutlineofp.pdf ?
    If so, what is your opinion about it?

    My opinion: at least the author of such theory must be a very intelligent person. I do not know if the theory is right, but I cannot easily prove it wrong.

    In a nutshell, he postulates the large enough clusters of neutrons would be stable against rapid decay by strong interaction, although still unstable against slower beta decay. Such polyneutrons could then grow, if neutron-rich isotopes like Li7 or deuterium are present in sufficient numbers. Once a polyneutron undergoes its first beta decay, it becomes charged and can no longer grow because Coulomb barrier prohibits its approach close to nuclei. Polyneutrons would be rare in nature, but to start a chain reaction one needs only a single polyneutron from somewhere. He also postulates that polyneutron can form a bound state with an ordinary nucleus, and that when another polyneutron interacts with such bound state, it can get split. Hence, the bound states act as poison for polyneutron growth. Since the reaction produces such poison, the reaction can only grow in regions where some physical process, e.g., strong microscopic shear flow in fluid carries the poison particles rapidly away. That, according to his theory, explains why LENR does not usually occur in normal matter.

    Of course, the stability of (large enough) polyneutron clusters is an unproven hypothesis, but I don’t think it’s necessarily in contradiction with known nuclear physics (although my incomplete knowledge of the latter does not allow me to judge it fully).

    The author’s name is Fisher: fishermen are cunning people, can fool such careful animals as fish.

    Italo R.:
    The travel of your son is wonderful indeed.
    You can suggest to your kids to visit the Niagara Falls in both sides, US and Canada.
    In March, between litigation and work, I am not able to schedule free time, but the USA are so beautiful that I am sure your son and his girlfriend will not miss me…
    I wish them a never-to-forget journey!
    Warm Regards
    A.R.

  • B.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    In the litigation hearings you speak English or do you have an interpreter?

  • Italo R.

    Dr. Rossi, In March I am going to send my son and his girl-friend to do a fantastic journey in Usa using a camper, and travelling from Miami to Niagara Falls.

    It would be fantastic if he could meet you as first step!
    But I know that it is almost impossible…

    Best Regards,
    Italo R.

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    Are W and Z bosons massless or not?

  • Marco Serra

    Dear Andrea
    I’d like to ask you if the increased COP of the QuarkX is due mainly to the extension of the SSM time.

    God bless you
    Marco Serra

    Dr Andrea Rossi,
    In your strategy is it foreseen that Leonardo will become a public company?
    Thankk you if you can answer,
    Charlotte

  • Dan

    Hi, Andrea:
    Can you say if the QuarkX works with direct or alternate current?
    Cheers,
    Dan
