    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    In ten years of R&D you have not yet been able to show a product that everybody can buy.
    Why?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Romano:
    We will give information about the tests during the presentation.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dan C.:
    The Ecat SK Leonardo should give deirectly 70% of current without necessity of conversion.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Dan C.

    Dear Andrea,

    With fossil fuel heat, requires on average 3Kw of heat for 1Kw electric.

    With a 10Kw SKL with 70% conversion, do you get 3Kw heat and 7Kw electric or does it have a ratio similar to fossil provided heat.

    Best wishes on the test.
    Dan C.

    Hi Andrea
    can you tell us if testing has started?
    If yes, is there any outcoming that you can share wit us?
    My best regards
    Romano

    Harvey Hamel:
    we did not notice any anomaly. Thank you for the advice, though.
    Warm Regards,

    Dear Andrea:
    I logged into the JoNP this morning, but there were no data beyond July 31 2019. At the same time, though,
    http://www.rossilivecat.com
    was working fine.
    Have you been hacked…again ?
    Best Wishes,

    Karl-Henrik Malmqvist:
    We already made tests to check the effects of vibrations on the Ecat: there are no effects.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Karl-Henrik Malmqvist

    Dear Andrea,
    Maybe this question is a bit premature, as your main focus now is on stability, reliability, endurance and soon the production process of the ECat SKL.

    An oldfashoned lightbulb for home application has a filament that works very well, but is sensitive for vibrations and strokes, especially when hot.
    Lightbulbs for cars have been tested for thousands of hours on shakers with different vibration inputs before going into production.
    Also common electronics for cars have to be tested in a similar way.

    Now to my question. Do you think it will be hard to make future version of the ECat SKL vibration resistent for car and mobile applications due to the design of the plasma and electrodes?

    Best Regards,
    Karl-Henrik, Sweden

    Koen Vandewalle:
    Thank you for your insight.
    Answer: we are working well and I continue to be optimistic about the scheduling, but, again, we are proceeding through unknown territories, so surprises, negative or positive as they might be, are always possible.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    I find the comments from Plasmafan, and the answers to them and around them, very enlightening. I think it is a shame that Andrea Rossi does not elaborate on that. This blog is called Journal of Nuclear Physics, and not “The blog about the progress of E-Cat development”.

    Suppose we had propulsion technology that allows us to accelerate a material spaceship to a significant percentage of the speed of light. With the reasoning that we can follow from fellow followers of this journal, it seems logical that the matter as we know it would gradually become unstable. The least strong interactions between the waves that form our matter would soon be disturbed. As a result, some of the “building blocks” of matter will disintegrate and may even be swallowed up by other building blocks that in turn will cause all kinds of reactions and interactions.
    Plasmafan’s suggestion that the E-Cat should become more efficient as speed increases, reinforces my understanding of this.

    It seems unthinkable that “life” as we know it can exist at such high speeds. Life is a very complex interaction of equally complex material phenomena.

    This makes it impossible to move to other planets, with the science-fiction purpose of founding a colony there, for example. Even if we discovered a livable planet. Unless we manage to move our entire galaxy along with it.

    What we can send to far-off places through all kinds of special techniques is information. Obviously, without obligation, unless that information would directly direct the thoughts of other living beings to influence their physical behavior. This can of course only be developed by highly advanced, universe-loving civilizations. To want to destroy something that is unattainable is almost a definition of nonsense.

    If I were the creator and designer of the universe, and I have to take into account species such as “humanity,” the material inaccessibility of other worlds would be a foundation of my creation.

    For the time being, I will use this as proof of the existence of a Deity.

    Does someone make a better proposal?

    With the most curious regards,
    Koen Vandewalle

    P.S .: have those reliability problems with the SKL been solved a bit and does the device behave according to your wishes?

  • Andrea Rossi

    WaltC:
    1 yes
    2 yes
    3 yes
    4 tried Amazon for a cristal ball: not available product

    Dr. Rossi,

    It seems to me that your E-Cat SKL device is a huge leap forward in many ways– in terms of direct electricity generation and compactness, it opens up the door to all sorts of additional applications.

    For example, there’s an $800 emergency power generator that can continuously generate 3KW of electricity, weighs 100lbs, has a volume of 4.6 CuFt, runtime of 3hrs per tank of gasoline and, unfortunately, produces fumes that necessitates it being placed outdoors.

    1) Do you see that as a possible future application of the E-Cat SKL?
    2) With Better Specs overall (cost, volume, weight, power & run-time)?
    3) Safe to be used indoors?
    4) Within the next 2-4 years?

    Thanks, WaltC

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    You reply to Nolan is interesting. Does this mean that you have enough satisfaction with the original E-Cat SKL model, to now work on improving the power density?

    Many thanks,

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi,
    your paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    is also linkable to the long range concept of the lecture of Carl Oscar Gullstrom made during the presentation of the Ecat QX
    Google: “Ecat QX presentation Stockholm November 24 2017”
    Correct ?

  • Nolan

    Are you also working during this period on the reduction of the dimensions of the module, maintaining the same power ?

  • R. Huje Cmuka

    Hi, Mr. Rossi.

    When will be finally able to buy a domestic ecat box, like the one shown on your webpage???

    Best regards.

    Thank you for your insght,

  • Eric Ashworth

    Dear Andrea, I do get a chuckle out of your reply to Plasmafan January 4th. as it informs readers how important it is to deal with physics as a practical subject and not theories concerning science fiction such as those proposed by Einstein which I know some people took as serious issues although I am of the opinion they were for self entertainment and his close associates but it could be said that there is a serious side to such thoughts. For instance lets consider the ‘static and mobile mechanics of energy interaction’. This infers that as velocity of an object increases over a given distance, time shortens and thereby at absolute velocity time equals zero, distance equals zero and the object no longer resembles what it was before it started to move. Conversely, if an object stops moving, any distant destination becomes impossible to reach, time has no meaning and the object remains the same but if the static object is comprised of individual pieces and those pieces move then it could be said that the ‘static and mobile mechanics of energy interaction’ applies to two contradictory scenarios that applies to the law of physics. Maybe it was this aspect that intrigued Einstein. It is interesting to think about if considering thought experiments. Regards Eric Ashworth

    Hello Andrea,

    I’m honored to have made the 50,000th post on the Journal of Nuclear Physics!

    When it comes to my question, I wasn’t necessarily thinking about relativistic effects due to approach the speed of light. I’ve learned that space itself – even what we view as empty – is in reality an ocean filled with a wide variety of “stuff” including neutrinos, WIMPS (weakly interacting massive particles), the electron-positron sea of Dirac (constituting a type of aether or zero point energy field), and of course all sorts of waves (longitudinal and transverse).

    Could your ballerina (a self organized plasma ball with internal structure) be able to catch a portion of at least some of the “stuff” I’ve mentioned in the above paragraph? If the plasma ball can capture neutrinos, for example, I can only theorize that it could capture even more when the apparatus would be moving at high speed.

    A very rough comparison – not exactly what I’m referring to – would be the following concept.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bussard_ramjet

    Except that instead of capturing hydrogen, the ballerina would be snagging (catching) a portion of the “stuff” passing through it. Then at higher speeds, since a greater quantity of “stuff” would be passing through it per unit of time, the energy output produced by the ballerina could increase.

    (The fact that your device is not producing energy via either LENR or traditional nuclear reactions inspires these thoughts in my mind. I’d love to hear more about where you think the power produced from the E-Cat SKL is coming from.)

    Thank you!

    The video of the lonk you cite does not work.
    Thank you for your attention to our work, even if your expectations are quite minimalistic…the Ecat could feel dwarfed ! ( just joking )

    PlasmaFan:
    Your comment is the N. 50 000 of this blog !
    Thanks to you and to all our Readers for the attention you all continue to think our work deserves.
    Answer:
    When an object tends to travel to reach the speed of light in the vacuum ( = 300 000 km/second ) the time tends to become zero, the mass tends to become infinite and the length tends to contract along the direction of the motion. Therefore while our spacecraft accelerates to reach c, the kWh/h should increase quite a lot, because the hour should become more and more slow to pass. But to obtain a useful effect the spacecraft should reach a speed of thousands of km/s ( = millions of km/h ). So, albeit theoretically it is thinkable, practically this effect can be reached only in science fiction.

    A.R.

    If you have experienced (minimum) energy capacity, you can measure V and A at the output, and compare capacity with delivery: this could be a gauge.

  • PlasmaFan

    Dear Andrea,

    Theoretically, would your E-Cat SKL produce more output when moving at high speed (lets say it was on board a space craft at some small percentage of the speed of light) compared to at rest on the surface of the Earth in someone’s laboratory?

    I’m asking this because it seems that if the E-Cat SKL is extracting energy from an unknown source (perhaps known to you) that permeates space, then the faster it moves the more waves/particles of that unknown source it would encounter.
