Some experiments that shook the World

To know whether a fuel isp roper fuel or not is to determine whether the fuel gives off greater amount of energy when it is used than the energy involved in making the fuel from raw natural materials.
A huge amount of energy is obtained when Hydrogen or thermite (a mixture of powdered Aluminium and oxide of iron) is burned.
But energy obtained from combustion of those fuels is not greater than the energy spent to make them from natural resources.
Therefore, Hydrogen and thermite cannot be treated as proper fuels.
Electricity could be readily generated from combustion of those fuels, but, electricity made from those fuels must be more expensive than electricity made from coal or petroleum.
According to Einstein’s  E=mcˆ2  formula, 1Kg of any material (preferably Uranium) will give 9×10ˆ16  joules, or  2×10ˆ16  calories, of  heat energy through complete nuclear reaction.
[E = mcˆ2 = 1 x (3 x 10ˆ8)ˆ2 joules = 20 x 10ˆ12 kilocals = 20 trillion kilocals]
If that would be true, then powerful states around the world would not compete for oil in the deserts of Arabia.
If one ton of Uranium of someton ‘Little Boy’ bomb could take part in the so-called nuclear reaction, then some million of square miles of the world would burn, instead of only 1.7 square miles of Hiroshima.
It not at all possible to give supply of electricity to the people from so-called nuclear fuels at a cost lower than fossil-fuel electricity for the reasons stated above.
However, it is possible to give ontological lectures on nuclear fission/fusion or to earn immense money from so-called nuclear projects.

    This photo (See Link) was recently seen on Facebook. Do you know if this gentleman, claiming to be “Santa Nickelus”, is an authorized distributor of E-Cats? Perhaps, you have a relative who may be authorized. ( I didn’t take the picture, but am just sharing it. )

    Again, Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!

    Dear Andrea,

    I hope I am understanding correctly your reply to an earlier comment:

    The hot cat prototype will be ‘driven’ by electricity produced by itself? This would mean almost zero input energy from an external source — a COP of almost infinity.

    Have I interpreted correctly?

    Best wishes and Merry Christmas!

    You understood right.
    I hope to be ready to start in February and to have in consolidated operation the plant in April.

    Dear Dr. Rossi
    I understand that you are preparing a hotcat with a carnot engine to self produce electric power. i also understand that in this way the cat will go half of the time in self sustaining mode. the other half time eill be alimented by its own electricity. If this is correct: when do you think this prototype will start working? Merry christmas and fruitful new year!

  • Giovanni V.

    Dear Andrea,
    Saturday night my home heating system went down and I stayed with cool until this morning (Monday), when the service technician replaced the recirculation pump. I thought to you and your home, which I preordered too.
    Merry Christmas and very happy and prosperous new year which I hope will bring us good news from you.
    “Warm” regards

    No, I am in Miami, I was joking about the “big fish” from the comment I answered to: New Bedford, MA, was the town of the whalers. Is the town Melville got the inspiration from, for his Moby Dick.

    Mr Rossi,
    I want to wish you your Family and all the JONP readers a wonderful Holiday, hope you are enjoying your stay in New Bedford MA, Are you here on business or pleasure? as you can see it’s getting pretty cold here in Boston, I hope that the new year will bring us a step closer of realizing the dream of having a home E-cat keeping us warm, hope you don’t forget about us home E-cat users.

    Buon Natale

  • Hans-Joachim Müller

    Dear Mr. Rossi,
    from the midle of 2011 I follow this blog. I am very hopefully about the success of your work.
    I wish you and all your coworkers merry Christmas and a very successful year 2013.

    How can QRT allow a flux line of strong gravity n(o) to penetrate unobstructed from one half of the 2He4 field into the other half – and at great distance, too? Why does the second half not take the task itself of carrying the particle? If a 2He4 is responsible for creating hexagonal floors, how can only one of the two deuterons be solely responsible for the occasional placement of a particle at some vertex of that hexagon – independently of the other deuteron? Is not the field of a 2He4 a unified one?

    All the best,

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Steven N. Karels:
    All your Friends of JONP wish you the same!

    To the readers of JNP:

    It is ready the PART FIVE of the series of five articles of mine published in Peswiki, concerning the calculation of magnetic moments with my new nuclear model.

    The theoretical calculations are agree to the experimental data supplied by nuclear tables.

    The article is in this link:

    In the article are calculated the magnetic moments for the nitrogen and oxygen isotopes (also for some 14Si and 20Ca isotopes)

    I am introducing some changings in the article PART TWO, in order to explain some fundamental questions (for instance, why a deuteron induces different magnetic moments in 3Li6 and 3Li7:

    Dear Andrea,
    Thanks for your comprehensive reply, forgive me, I should have said ‘researchers’ rather than ‘experts’, personally I have serious doubts about anything when I see the word ‘expert’

  • Giovanni Guerrini

    …I hope yes!

    Regards G G

  • Andrea, a very Happy Holidays to you. Ideas are like fish. The big ones can be more difficult to pull into the boat. Great wishes to everyone here who is willing to catch a really really big fish.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Giovanni Guerrini:
    I do not know.

    Dear Frank Acland:
    If the magazine peer reviewing will be negative, the report will be put on Arxive.
    Warm Regards,

  • Frank Acland

    Dear Andrea,

    If the peer reviewers do not approve the report, will the report be published anywhere else — maybe here in the JONP?

    Best wishes,

    Frank Acland

  • Dear Koen Vandewalle,

    I suppose/presume you’re Flemish/Belgian, and I would like to exchange some information with you.

    If you’re interested, could you please send me a message (to )

    Kind Regards,


  • Giovanni Guerrini

    Dear dott Rossi,
    could this peer review (if it will be positive of course)help you to obtain the international patent?

    Regards G G

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear R. Meiner:
    Please forward your request to
    Warm Regards,

  • Dear Dr. Rossi.
    Could you please give me the name/address of your Dutch licensee?
    I would like to start a joint project with him.
    Thanks and kind regards,
    R. Meiner

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Franco Bianchini:
    You will read the names on the report, if the Per reviewers will approve it.
    Warm Regards,

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Herb Gills:
    You must distinguish between the peer reviewing and the manufacturing of operating plants: the first does not depend on me, the second yes.
    Warm Regards,

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Drew:
    They are scientists, mainly with Physics Doctorate.
    By the way: what do you mean “recognized experts in LENR”? Is around there somebody enough stupid to define himself “recognized expert in LENR”? Recognized by whom? Find me a guy recognized by somebody as an expert of LENR, I will find you 1 million guys that will not recognize him as such and another million that do not recognize LENR at all. Is it really so difficult to understand that the sole recognized thing that counts is the recoognition of a Customer who uses a plant? The director of the validation has been chosen by a Customer of us, and the team and the reviewers have been chosen by the director. The peer reviewers of the magazine , obviously, have been chosen by the magazine and we do not know who they are.
    Warm Regards,

  • Drew

    Dear Andrea,
    If I may ask,
    are the 3rd party..
    1. recognized experts in the LENR field
    2. totally out of this field
    3. a combination of the above
    Many thanks, and have a very enjoyable festivity

  • Herb Gillis

    Andrea Rossi:
    You mentioned that the third party report will publish in early February- – if the peer review is “positive”. What do you think are the chances the report will not be positive? Would that mean that the Hot Cat “does not work”? If the peer review is negative, will you tell us what the objections of the referees were?
    Regards; HRG.

  • Franco Bianchini

    Dear Ing. Rossi,
    please can you tell us who will be the reviewer for the reports?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Dear Orsobubu:
    Thank you for the very appreciated translation in English of the Swedish Reportage.
    Warm Regards,
