    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    I am following Your development since the shutdown, because it is amusing and fascinating to read about, how You deal with all the questions.

    I do come from a family with long generations of handcraftmanship, especially soldering and metal/iron/steel materials.
    I am the 4th generation of my family, who comes from western germany, the so called Ruhrgebiet…where a lot of people have this kind of jobs.

    I would like to know, how You are soldering 10.000 connections, because in 4 generations, I never heard of such thing being necessary to solder manually.

    Could You please clarify, which materials Do You use for the connections and for the soldering and which technique You preferred?

    Regards

    Mick Brisgau

    Dr. Rossi:

    Are those “connections” physical hard wire connections? If so you have a horrendous quality control problem on a prototype that greatly diminishes your probability of success

    Dear Andrea,
    I wish all of Team Rossi well in the upcoming test of the exponentially improved SKL.

    Due to the myriad changes, it seem appropriate to update my guess for the SKL contest.

    Respectfully,
    Mason

    My guess:
    – Electrical Power Output: 10 kiloWatts
    – Conversion Efficiency: 95%
    – Dimensions: 10x10x10 cm
    – Unit weight (excluding the control unit): 225 grams

    Hello DR Rossi

    “I have a hard time getting
    my head wrapped around
    how you can have 10000
    connections in one SKL. ….”

    Perhaps Andrea has employed some iranian rug makers?

    The highest quality iranian hand-knotted rugs have more than 1000 knots per square inch.

    If the EcatSKL is a ~four inch cube, then its outside surface area is 96 sq ins.

    Then there is all the space inside too.

    Hi Andrea,
    my crystal ball says that most of the 10000 welds are for micro lightning rods.

    Dall’Alpi alle Piramidi,
    dal Manzanarre al Reno,
    di quel securo il fulmine
    tenea dietro al baleno;
    scoppiò da Scilla al Tanai,
    dall’uno all’altro mar.

    Fu vera gloria? Ai posteri
    l’ardua sentenza

    Regards
    Alessandro Coppi

  • Giovi

    Dear Andrea
    I suppose 10.000 connections are hard to fit into the 10x10x10 cm cube, so i think they fit into the control unit… am I correct?

    My best regards

    Stephen:
    It will be 06:30 A.M. Stockholm time.
    Yes, I used a simulation software, but when real power will run through I expect the situation to be very different. The risk of a failure is high.
    There is a lot of drawing, of soldering and of pinstripping, the whole in a very limited volume. Obviously when this job will be made by robots it will be easier, but robots can be programmed only after a prototype model has been perfectioned; robots can reproduce an artificial intelligence as you teach them to make it: if the model has one error, the errors will be multiplied by millions with robots. Let’s see what happens. Tomorrow I will finish the assembling, then I will need 2 days to repass all the connections with the digital microscope, and finally Friday the start up.
    Thank you for your sustain !
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Stephen

    Dear Andrea.

    Would that be 06:30 CEST it GMT or something else?

    Take your time if necessary making 10000 connections and being sure they are all correct is a huge undertaking. I suspect it’s a lot more involved than connecting wires to pinstrips

    Have already ran simulations and emulations of this extra capacity with your controller?

    Or is it more an issue for power management.

    Thanks and good luck with this huge endeavor.

    Stephen.

  • critical_curiosity

    Dear Dr. Rossi.

    Somehow I cannot believe You.

    Your ecat is more complex than a CPU ?

    Really, maybe You can try to feel with uns, that this is not a fact easy to believe.

    Please provide at least some picture of some solderings… the rest You can blkrr our or cover then You won’t disclose any sensible information.

    Thanks in advace.

  • Rick57

    Dear Andrea,

    usually complexity and reliability are not good friends…

    Can you comment about your decision to develop the new SKL ?

    Thanks a lot for what you are doing and good luck for Friday.

  • Hi Andrea:

    I am wondering if you are able give an indication about how ready you are to give the demonstration of the EcatSKL. I realize that the pandemic has created problems, and that you keep coming up with new ways to improve the unit to give even more impressive performance.

    So my question is: once the virus situation has been satisfactorily resolved, how long do you think it will take to put on the demonstration? Put another way: do you feel more development work needs to be done on the unit before the presentation? Or is the virus the only issue preventing the demonstration from being scheduled immediately?

    One thing is for absolutely certain: the very last thing the planet needs right now is for you to do the demonstration too early, and see you become infected with the virus!

    Anticipatory regards,

    Rodney.

    Dear Andrea,
    Please excuse the scattered nature of my questions below, but I do it for efficiency.

    1) Judging by the firmly scheduled time for testing the enhanced SKL – at 6:30 AM on Friday – this leads me to think that others will be there in person or via Skype to witness the test. Is this so, and if so, about how many? I hope they are morning persons!

    2) If the test does not go well (God forbid) , will you revert to the simpler SKL, perhaps with some enhancements learned from your work with the enhanced SKL attempt?

    3) When will you update us with the results of the test? If it is soon after the test begins, which will be 12:30 AM my time, I will want to stay up.

    3) Given your history of athleticism and endurance -like your boxing skills as a teenager and setting the national record for the twenty-four hour run, etc, it is surprising to me that your wife continues to beat you in tennis. I’m considering that she played competitive tennis when she was younger, and continues to keep in good shape so she can beat you. Is this true?

    Cheers from Canada, and best wishes for your success,
    Mark

  • Andrea Rossi

    Critical_curiosity:
    The Ecat SKL needs all those connections because it is complex. Very complex.

  • Andrea Rossi

    George N:
    Sorry, but I never stated that the Ecat SKL harvests virtual particles, because it is not so.
    About your question, I am not able to answer.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Sam:
    I’ll see what I can do.

    Hello DR Rossi

    Any chance of getting that
    Picture of the ECat SKL
    if the test is successful?

  • George N

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    You have recently stated that you believe your latest version of the E-cat harvests energy from virtual particles. Do you believe that spacetime is a superfluid composed of virtual particles? (Einstein leaned heavily this way in the 1940s when virtual particles were discovered, but this was after the theory of quantum mechanics was developed and accepted by mainstream physicists).

    Best,
    George N

  • critical_curiosity

    Dear Dr. Rossi,

    You mentioned 10.000 soldered connections.

    This is more, than pins on an usual CPU.

    Can You describe, why Your device needs more connections, than a regular CPU?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Patrick:
    I did it all myself. I used also components that are off the shelf, but that is the minor part. The work is very, very difficult. The probability that it will work are probably less than the 50%, but it is so important that all this work is worth the time and money and fatigue it takes. Friday July 31st at 6.30 AM I will turn it up and see what happens.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

  • Julia

    Dr Rossi,
    Can it be that the casimir effect makes a synergy with the Nelson hypothesis , both described in
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    ?
    Cheers

  • Andrea Rossi

    Italo R.:
    Thank you for the information.
    I am not able to answer this question, but if the Ecat SKL will work, it could be useful too. To put the 235U enriched uranium, that is a fuel necessary to operate a nuclear power plant, on spaceships could be dangerous in case of fall of a spaceship, which is an event whose probability is much more than zero.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dr. Rossi,

    The USA starts to design nuclear power plants for Moon and Mars:

    https://notiziescientifiche.it/centrali-nucleari-su-luna-e-marte-usa-fanno-sul-serio/

    Do you think that ECATs (thermal or electric) could soon be taken into consideration in order to avoid the spread of radioactive substances in such environments?

    Sincerely,

    Italo R.

  • Patrick

    Dear Andrea,

    The 10,000 or so connections, are they currently done by hand and did you do them all by yourself?

    Are some of them part of off the shelf products that you use in your assembly?

    Best regards
    Patrick

  • Yuri

    Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
    I appreciate the spirit with which you have invested money and time in the search of an Ecat SKL with higher power density and wish you the success you merit. Will you tell us how your test has gone next Friday ?
    All the best,
    Yuri

  • Anders

    Dear Andrea Rossi,
    in your paper
    http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions
    I read that has been Prof Sven Kullander in 2013 to propose for the first tim the possible role of the Casimir forces in the Ecat technology: did it happen when you met him in the Uppsala University for a series of discussions ?
    Best Regards,
    Anders

    Dr Joseph Fine:
    Thank you for your kind wishes: I hope to get good numbers, otherwise the loss of money and time would be obscene.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Godspeed on your eventful test this coming Friday July 31.

    Friday 31st is like Friday 13th but backwards. :)

    That may be Good luck.

    KeithT:
    I do not agree with the hypothesis of R.L. Jaffe. Maybe he is right, maybe I am right. All I can observe is that my interpretation is coherent with my experiments. As a consequence of this fact, it is possible to say that my experiments make a point in favour of my interpretation, that respects the definition of Casimir force, as it is referenced to in
