Nobel Prize Winning Cambridge Physicist Believes in E-Cat and Rossi

A Nobel Prize winning physicist at England’s famous Cambridge University believes Andrea Rossi’s claims about the Energy Catalyzer. In a youtube clip recorded with a colleague, Brian Josephson stated that he thinks the Energy Catalyzer works and is producing energy.

Josephson did not say how the catalyzer works but speculated that the device may concentrate energy and somehow force hydrogen out of nickel. In the clip, Josephson compared the reception Rossi has received to the media’s reaction to the Wright Brothers’ first claims to fly. Josephson noted that some newspapers and others refused to believe that the bicycle mechanics had actually flown a plane at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, in 1903 when they actually had.

Josephson correctly noted that there is nothing in current physics to explain the functioning of the Energy Catalyzer. He admitted that he does not know Rossi and has not seen the inside of the device so his claims are speculation.

Josephson also speculated that scientists could be ignoring the Energy Catalyzer because Rossi has refused to publish scientific papers about it. He noted there is a separation between the practical world and the academic world and that academics want theory while Rossi is attempting to get practical results.

Brian Josephson won the Noble Prize for discovering the Josephson Effect in 1973. The effect is the basis of Josepshon junction which is employed in some chips used in digital electronics. Josephson discovered the effect while doing pioneering work on superconductivity.

Josepson is currently a fellow at Trinity College Cambridge and a retired professor. He is also head of the Mind Matter Unification Project at Cambridge which tries to document intelligent processes in nature. He is also a well known exponent of the view that some paranormal activity could be real.

Some internet sources note that Josephson could be updating the Wikipedia page on the energy catalyzer.

  • The original YouTube video had sound problems and has now been superseded — maybe the link can be edited so as to point to the new version at By the way I believe the noble Alfred spelt his surname Nobel, not Noble ;-).

    I have indeed done some editing of the w’pedia articles but I (and others) have been rather hamstrung by silly editors who comb the rules to find reasons for removing anything favourable to LENR if they can. Making videos is much more fulfilling!

    Thank you Dr. Josephson, the link and the misspelled words have been corrected.

    “newspapers and others refused to believe that the bicycle mechanics had actually flown a plane at Kitty Hawk”

    Most of these types of comment come from jealous and ignorant people or from card carrying Skeptics who make lots of money selling their books. Dictionaries are now describing this as “pathological skepticism”. This pathological skepticism has done enormous harm to the advancement of cold fusion. Thanks to Rossi and all the other researchers who persisted with cold fusion.

      True, a lot of people will not believe in something until it is rammed down their throats. Some will still not believe it.

        The nuclear industry’s promotion is nothing compared to the nonsense that the coal industry is pumping out.
