Interesting Posts at Rossi’s Blog
Although nothing but rumors and wild speculation, have been flying in the greater cold fusion community as of late. Some interesting things have been going on at Andrea Rossi’s official blog The Journal of Nuclear Physics. Here are some highlights of what has been happening there.
As December 17, 2011, the Journal was partially down although some of the recent posts were available if you clicked on November 2011. A post from Rossi at the E-cat report blog stated that the Journal had been attacked and was unavailable. He didn’t say who was responsible for the hacking but stated his IT guy was working on it. One has to wonder if one of the many e-cat critics out there has taken his hatred to Rossi to the next level and is trying to sabotage him.
Here are some of the highlights of what Rossi has written in response to guests:
- Rossi plans to publish the theory behind e-cat and presumably details of its operation when he gets patent protection. He didn’t say what patent this would be. Rossi already has an Italian patent and he has applied for US and European Union patents. Here’s what he said:
Dear Paolo Accomazzi:
I will publish the theory when I will have the protection of a granted patent, because the theory introduces to the confidential issues of the technology.
- Rossi is taking orders for 10KW (kilowatts of heat not electricity) home e-cat boilers. Note this device is not in production yet. Rossi has said it will go into production if he gets 10,000 orders. An earlier post said the price would be 400 euros ($521 US). Those who post such orders will be contacted by Rossi’s sales departments when sales begin. He did not say when sales would begin. You can place an order to this e-mail:
- Rossi also confirmed that he is heating his factory in Bologna where the e-cat is manufactured with a low energy nuclear reaction device.
Yes, we heat up the factory where we work with an E-Cat.
Note Signor Rossi presented no evidence to verify this statement. If true it is very exciting news. We could use such a heating device in the US many families can no longer afford to heat their homes in some areas.
Somebody sent in this youtube clip which shows scientists from the US Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command talking about twenty of research on mini explosions in various metals. The explosions were presumably caused by a low energy nuclear reaction.
It was given at the University of Missouri on May 29, 2009. University of Missouri Vice Chancellor of Research Dr. Robert Duncan (a physicist) has been shown a lot of interest in cold fusion efforts. He’s even asked for a national effort investigate the phenomenon in the US and discussed it on CBS’s 60 minutes news program. Duncan has even encouraged cold fusion research at his university.
Some interesting are going on and at least Rossi has clarified his position. He will make e-cat available for scientific investigation when he has legal protection for his invention. He isn’t willing to let anybody even respected scientists steal his confidential information. That seems reasonable given the vast profits that are possible.
