    Dan C.:
    Thank you for the link, with whom I agree. It is interesting that this analysis is made by a scientist that worked for decades at the highest levels of the ITER realization.
    Warm Regards,

  • Dear Dr Rossi
    I presume you have heard of the electric universe theory where gravity doesn’t play as import role in how the universe functions. I was curious if you subscribe to such theories yourself.

    Eric Ashworth,
    I forgot to mention that fission also has infinite cop if the fuel could be made infinite in supply. This requirement could be achieved using breeder reactors.
    My complaint is basically that the necessary development has been underfunded and delayed by various agencies. Despite this delay, a number of examples can be used to indicate that industry is catching up to reality. France uses fission to provide 75% of its energy requirements showing that 100% is within reach. China has put a program together that will supply a great deal of their energy requirements within a reasonable time frame. They will overtake the amount of energy now produced in the USA(the largest producer today). A number of countries have planned reactor construction plans that will provide the majority of their energy requirements. All plans include design modifications that will increase not only the efficiency but the longevity of the plants, and further research promises to increase these criteria.
    I believe that this effort will eventually provide almost all of the planets needs, thus negating the efforts of alternate devices except to fill the requirement not provided by fission.
    All the science needed to develop this technology is available and known by development engineers. The world is just in the past few years are awakening to its reality. Even the problem of disposing radioactive ash is being resolved.
    By the time other LENR devices become available to the public, they may only fill small and unique sectors of industry and public use needs.
    Hopeful regards.

    Dear Pekka Janhunen, I agree entirely with your observations. Money controls people and this I believe is its main purpose.

    Dear eenie 1, Thank you for your reply and I respect your answer. You say… Hot fusion is possible. I said nothing is impossible in nature (man being a part of nature). You say… The Hydrogen bomb uses hot fusion and our sun operates on this principle. I agree. Then you say society is willing to finance the possible development of usable devices. I say not society as a whole because society is made up of a mixed bag, some people understand nothing whereas at the other end of the spectrum some know everything or should I say almost. You say…. my question should be is the resources spent on its development justified given the difficulty involved with the task?. I say… I stand by what I said because I am aware of the Hydrogen bomb and our sun but both these two examples cannot be replicated to provide an abundant supply of clean cheap energy. One of them literally self destructs rendering it useless in this particular endeavour. The other requires a macro amount of space to sustain an abundant supply of free clean energy. Neither systems require magnetic fields provided by electro magnets. It’s not the impossibility of what they are trying to do, it’s their general approach to replicate that I find puzzling and the amount of finance thrown into such a futile venture.

    I will not argue with with your answer regarding the development of fission reactions as it is speculative and you could very well be correct as I believe you are inferring that by more extended research into fission reactions there could no doubt be a better understanding of this extremely important subject. You also said “my question would be how did society allow this to happen”?. My answer is, since when did society have any input into such important decisions. And yes I agree it is a sad situation but not one that I know cannot be overcome albeit an almost impossible task. I do believe we are both on the same page even though some people could argue otherwise.
    Regards, Eric Ashworth

    P.S. I must add this extremely important comment. The JONP is without doubt the most important journal in the world because of no censorship. Censorship should be outlawed in any society. I believe it comes about by fear.

    Dear Andrea,

    The ability for the E-Cat to provide its own clean stable power supply by means of SSM (Self Sustaining Mode) will potentially lead to more stability over the lifespan.

    The E-Cat controls will likely consist of electronics that are required to provide a very stable tight tolerance specific signal to the E-Cat charge for initiating nuclear change.

    Electronics generally require a clean power supply (and sometimes shielding), power supplies in an industrial environment can be prone to spikes, dropouts, harmonics and even outages, power supply anomalies (and electromagnetic interference) often originating from the start up, shut down and condition of nearby equipment and switchgear, this often leads to a requirement for power supply conditioning.

    Power supply conditioning can be relatively expensive, and may not be something you would want to include with E-Cat installations, so the ability of the E-Cat to provide its own stable supply power by means of SSM is worthwhile pursuing.

    What works in a laboratory may face additional challenges in an industrial environment.

    Regards,

    Keith Thomson.

    Eric Ashworth,
    Hot fusion is not impossible. The Hydrogen bomb uses hot fusion and our sun operates on this principal to provide us with continuous free energy. Because it is a known existing method of energy production, society is willing to finance the possible development of usable devices. Your question should be, is the resources spent on its development justified given the difficulty involved with the task? My answer is that if the same effort and moneys were spent on developing fission reactors from their beginning in the 1940″s we would now have an energy source that is self sustained, controllable, safe, able to make its own fuel, made in any size necessary, portable and maintainable with ordinary trained people. Today about 20% of the worlds energy is produced by fission devices including ships employing relatively small units. Compared with the number of deaths caused by the production of other energy methods, the small number of deaths directly attributed to fission devices if we do not include weapon casualties is miniscule in comparison. My question would be, how did society allow this to happen?
    Sad regards.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Ville Kanninen:
    From the description I read, there is nothing in common at all. It reminds me something very similar made by NASA, described also in this blog several weeks ago and another attempt to apply hot fusion to fighter jets, patented by Lockeed Martin, that too described several months ago in this blog. All of them unapplicable for two reasons:
    1- they will never work for the impossibility to insulate temperatures of millions of Kelvin with a stable magnetic field
    2- accepting by absurd that they could work, the screening of the radiations derived from the nuclear fusion in such devices would have a weight of hundreds of tonns.

    Hello Dr Rossi

    Here are three comments from
    ECat World blog about your present
    research.Can you comment on them?

    Omega Z

    My 2 cents worth.
    I can adjust the burner on my gas stove to put out 3kw of heat and it is stable and constant whether I’m heating water or just air. As long as there is gas flowing through the valve.
    Rossi can produce heat. But has to depend on a controller to keep it going and is probably problematic. He likely has what could be considered a constant fuel flow problem.
    My opinion is his current focus on SSM is to create a feedback that keeps the fuel flowing just as the gas valve does on a gas stove. Thus a constant stable reaction regardless how the heat is used.

    John Oman reply comment

    More complicated than that. From his previous demos, it seems he has to turn the excitation “on” and “off” (with the “on” period much shorter than the “off”) to prevent the reactor from destroying itself. So it is a balancing act of pushing it for maximum output vs. conservative/safe operation.

    Omega Z reply

    He has to turn the excitation “on” and “off” (with the “on” period much shorter than the “off”)
    And that may be the problem he’s dealing with. During passive heat loss everything is stable. When you start forcefully extracting heat from the reactor, the plasma temperature drops and the controller must continuously recalibrate on/off timing. Depending on the lag time between the reactor the controller and the amount of heat being extracted, there may be stability issues.
    With a 3kw gas burner and gas flow controlled by a gas valve, it will always produce a stable 3kw output.
    It may be Rossi is trying to create a feedback from the reactor/plasma that is self regulating without the need of the controller intervening. A 3kw reactor that always produces a stable 3kw output.

    Regards
    Sam

  • Steven N. Karels

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    As I recall (subject to my old memory), you indicated the experiment on your current eCat Electric technology should finish in the mid-Oct to end of October time period. Can you give us an update? Will the experiment completion date be slipped?

  • Dear Andrea, Eric Ashworth:
    In my experience, often when money is poured into something, there are some indirect military-industrial interests behind it.
    For example, a space telescope is basically a spy satellite turned upside down, laser fusion is a testbed of conditions occurring in nuclear explosion, Jupiter Galileo probe was a demonstration that a warhead can survive the fireball of a nearby nuclear explosion. Etc etc.
    regards, /pekka

  • Ville Kanninen

    Thank you for your answer.

    Yes, the patent application text looks just to be hot fusion. But their claimed device is astonishing small for a hot fusion reactor, which made me think maybe there would be something else going on = perhaps they got inspiration from your inventions.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Eric Ashworth:
    The answer is contained in your question: because a lot of money is spent on it.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, Your response to Ville Kennihen with regards Hot Fusion is as you know and I know impossible to achieve but people on the outside who believe in the advancement of science are continually fooled by their none understanding of the subject and consequently you keep getting asked on your blog about this impossible task. Now I have a question for yourself Andrea. If this Hot Fusion is impossible, which we know it is, why is so much money being wasted on it?. If you can answer this question and provide me with a good solid answer as to why, then just maybe I will change my opinion but I not holding my breath and it must be realized as you are aware that the top most brilliant minds in various countries upon the planet are working on this impossible dream but as you know and myself, nothing is impossible in nature. It merely requires the right approach and the technique. I await your reply with anticipation.
    Regards, Eric Ashworth

    We received about 500 000 pre-orders. No, I do not remember them. They are all registered and when we will be able to sell the domestic apparatuses we will send to all the offers.
    About the comments of this blog: they are more than 40 000: no, I do not remember most of them, sorry.
    Since you have to remember only yours, I suppose for you it is easier to remember them and send here copy of them, so I can answer properly.

    Dan C. I think I understand where you are coming from. To be humble is virtuous. A miracle is an unexplained phenomena. God creates the human baby, a women provides the vessel. The man instigates the process.

    I know exactly what you are saying but your wife lived it, you witnessed it. two very different perspectives. As you say waiting is the worst thing in life for you but maybe the actual experience of the event is more traumatic. A classic example of your experience is viewing the photographs from the top of Everest and castigating the climber on the wait and yes you are annoyed and I am sure you are not alone but the more difficult the challenge, the greater the reward and remember patience is a virtue. As I now realize, life is nothing other than a learning experience. All the best, Eric Ashworth.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dan C.:
    That’s nothing compared to the labor of the guys that are making the hot fusion ! We must respect their tremendous situation…every 10 years they say that in the next 50 years they will have a COP>1, so think about their terrible suffering, every 10 years they have to be desperate and the culprit is of the taxpayers, like you, me, everybody, that every 10 years give them billions to force them to do a thing that they know perfectly it will never work. Think how bad are the taxpayers ! Think: one of the Eater’s chief engineers recently told during a supposedly science divulgative TV broadcasting that the hot nuclear fusion is very safe, because is made by hydrogen atoms that form helium atoms, both innocuous and non radioactive materials…..think how he has suffered, thinking that he, a veritable nuclear engineer, has been forced by the insistent taxpayers to pronounce one of the biggest stupidities ever pronounced through the whole human history. Not to mention the enthusiastic reaction of the “scientific” journalist that was interviewing him.

    Dear Andrea,

    From time to time, you remind yourself to be humble. Maybe this will help.

    God created the world and all that is in it in 6 days and on the 7th he rested.

    How long have you been working on your miracle? Humble now.

    A miracle of life, a woman creates a human baby in 9 months. How long have you been working on your baby? Humbled yet.

    WAITING
    Before my son was born, my wife was in labor for 40 hours.

    Waiting is the worst thing in life. My wife has a different opinion.
    I Don’t get it. 😉

    Umm, I think she stretched that labor thing out just to be vindictive to make me suffer. During that 40 hours she called me every word imaginable and then some. Words I can’t even repeat. No. Seriously. I don’t even know what they mean let alone pronounce them. 😉

    I have conclusive evidence she was just being vindictive. Before my daughter was born, my wife was only in labor for 1 and a half hours. Do I need more proof than that? Observation is priceless when properly used. Am I right? 😏

    Humbling regards,
    Dan C.

    P.S.
    It’s a good thing you’re not a woman,
    Else I might think you were drawing this out just to be vindictive. 😉

  • Dear Andrea, and dear Xavier Pitz,
    Leonardo’s Gioconda was painted in Italy between 1503 and 1504.
    She was taken to France by Leonardo, sold or donated to the king of France who hosted him for the 2 years that preceded his death.
    From May 1517 to his death, 2 May 1519 he painted nothing.
    He had been hit from paralysis to the right but continued his studies of geometry assisted by students first of all Giovanni Melzi.
    Calorosissimi saluti.
