LENR Researchers Making Slow but Study Progress
Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) researchers out there seem to be making slow but steady progress. No big breakthroughs are coming out but posts at Andrea Rossi’s blog and the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project indicate some progress is occurring.
Andrea Rossi admits that he has produced some results with his ecat LENR device that he really doesn’t understand. He recently admitted that there is a strange energy side effect. Unfortunately it’s difficult to tell what this this is because Rossi refuses to reveal the inner workings of the reactor. He claims this is because he is having a hard time getting it patented due to recent patent law changes.
Rossi has also stated that the third party verification of the ecat claims he has promised is coming. It’s unclear when because Rossi himself doesn’t know when it will be published. The Third Party investigators apparently returned to Rossi’s facilities and conducted another round of testing in Mid-January.
The open sourced Memorial Project is making more progress on its efforts to replicate and adapt the Celani LENR cells. The project’s progress blog reported that researchers at the Hunt Utility Group in Minnesota have been able to generate higher temperatures in their cells as pressures fell. New cells with new wires are assembled.
The project has also posted emails from Celani on its blog. Unfortunately not much data has been posted recently.
What these efforts prove is that the development of LENR like all technological progress is going to be a slow and steady effort that will require of patience, hard work and “blood, sweat and tears.” The progress is likely to be frustratingly slow which will probably turn off many of the instant results and free energy people.
My guess is that it will take several years of research to produce a working energy source. Just as it taken over two decades of research to reach the point where an LENR reaction can be widely duplicated. Now it’ll probably take ten years to create a controllable LENR device.
The only way to speed up the process is to get a lot of people working on LENR. That’s where the Fleischmann project has to be commended by making the Celani technology available free to researchers it enables large numbers of researchers to join in on the work.
Even Rossi’s third party report will help in this process because it will contain at least some information that other researches will be able to use. Don’t expect instant LENR to appear but don’t get discouraged because it doesn’t appear overnight. Remember the Wright Brothers didn’t fly across the Atlantic on the day after their first flight.
