Buona Fortuna, Andrea Rossi!

From time to time over the centuries inventions come on the scene which have fundamentally changed our world, profoundly affecting the way people live their lives. If we look back in time we can see landmark inventions whose imprints are everywhere to this day — for example, the printing press, the steam engine, the internal combustion engine, aircraft, the telephone, the radio, the television, the computer chip. In each of these cases, the first iteration was primitive and crude by modern standards, but even so, in each case a working model was created and introduced to the world, sparking development and innovation which led to technology probably far beyond what the original inventor envisioned.

We may be on the eve of the introduction of yet another landmark piece of technology. Tommorrow Andrea Rossi will put his work and reputation on the line as he conducts a test of his energy catalyzer that will be open to inspection by selected scientists and journalists, and apparently published reports will be available at the NyTeknik web site soon afterwards.

There’s no guarantee that the test will go smoothly. Early models of many machines have been clunky and far from perfect (the first flight by the Wrights only lasted 12 seconds), but for the sake of everyone who is hoping for a better energy source for the future, let’s hope that tomorrow’s test will show that Andrea Rossi really has discovered a new fire.

    salve, perchè non vi costituite come spa? Avreste tutti i fondi che vi servono per una produzione moderna e globale, potreste incaricare avvocati per preservare i diritti e dareste la possibilità a tanti di investire in questo settore promettente. Forza che è la volta buona!

    DEAR ALL:
    I THANK ALL OUR READERS FOR THE ENCOURAGEMENT I RECEIVED: SHOULD I BE ABLE TO TURN YOUR PASSION INTO ENERGY, WE COULD FUEL ALL THE HIGH SPEED TRAINS OF EUROPE WITH IT.
    THE TEST IS GONE. WE FINISHED AROUND MIDNIGHT YESTERDAY, THIS MORNING AT SIX WE HAD TO RESTART THE WORK ON THE 1 MW PLANT.
    WE WILL NOT PUBLISH A REPORT, BECAUSE I HAVE NOT TIME TO DO IT, BUT YOU WILL FIND REPORTS IN MANY OTHER BLOGS AND IN THE SCIENTIFIC MAGAZINES WHICH ATTENDED THE TEST: NYTEKNIK AND FOCUS.
    WARM REGARDS TO ALL.
    ANDREA ROSSI

    I think the US dollar will be helped by the E-Cat. We consume oil at a very high pace compared to the rest of the world, we have the most to gain by a technology change. We need to embrace this and make sure we drive the world in its usage. The middle east will never be the same.

  • s

    Although my criteria for believing that it works are strict, I definitely hope that it works. Good luck with the test.

  • dandelion

    Well, the first thing that will fall, and quite abruptly, would be the US dollar. Because the US dollar is the curency used on the oil market. The dollar is a currency backed by almost all of the oil reserves in the World. They can print dollars as much as they please, as long as there is a prospect of oil prices increases or new fields of oil to be found by prospector companies. If the oil becomes useful only for plastics… the dollar goes down and it will take USA with it. And a World with a USA going down the drain is a place I would hardly consider safe for anyone of us.

    If the Bologna experiment goes well, I would begin to fear for the lives of anyone involved. I wonder if the Europeans are protecting Rossi from the shadow – the Euro would benefit most if his contraption does the job.

    • Luca Salvarani

      There will be a better occasion to write about this and share our ideas. Right now I’m olny focused on the test….. The matter is very complex, but i strongly disagree with you about the US Dollar! Probably it will drop in the long run (more versus commodities than versus other currencies) but not because of e-cat! It’s the opposite: e-cat should reinforce the US Dollar.

      • John Boston

        How could this mythical device possibly reinforce the $? Dandelion explained the result of “free energy” or at the very least a tremendous dip in oil dependency quite clearly.

        Almost all of OPEC, Russia, Canada, and Venezula’s oil market is based on the US Dollar. Those markets crap out and the US dollar value is gutted.

        That will make the 2009 recession look like a hiccup.

    Dear Andrea Rossi and colleauges!
    I´m pressing the thumbs and praying to God that you´re successfully.
    Warm regards to all E-Cat developers and of course all bloggers here.

    12:22 Italian time, Passerini has wrote a comment in his blog:

    @to all
    Be patient! We are all fine. The true test has not began yet. They have just finished to fill the primary circuit. The reaction will start soon… from what I’ve heard the test will probably end at midnight. Please don’t ask me technical details, you’ll find them on the report written by Mats Lewan. Stremmenos has told me a lot of interesting informations about the reasons why he thinks the E-Cat works… I can only say that there have been many more tests than what has been told in internet.

    • Johannes Hagel

      It is not a scientific approach what I am doing but I admit to all of you that I am just praying to God for a positive result. But I am not ashamed of it!

      May God bless this experiment!

    Up early this morning, my champagne cooling in the fridge, for either a great celebration or drowning of sorrows.
    Some people seem to think the more words one writes the more it proves a point.
    Excessive skeptasism is dangerous, hurtful, non-productive, non-scientific.
    Give one example where excessive skeptasism has benefited anybody above normal skepticism.
    One should always be fairly skeptical of experts, dogma, excepted knowledge, teachers, politicians, authority, religions, naysayers, salesman, and generally everybody and everything.
    But with an open-minded, encouraging, fair, not dogmatic, searching willingness to move forward beyond known knowledge at every opportunity.
    Anybody who disagrees with the above must justify the advantages of excessive skepticism and not just keep demonstrating it.

  • Luca Salvarani

    Yestarday a great inventor died… today another one could emerge…. Buona fortuna di tutto cuore!

  • Roger Barker

    Despite my growing scepticism of Rossi and his eCat I too hope this test gives us some conclusive POSITIVE results. For the sake of mankind we need this to work more than anything we’ve ever needed.

  • Stephen T.

    God speed Mr. Rossi, God speed.

    WIZARDS OF FIRE !

    Big kudos for Dr Rossi not only for having the intuition to develop a new kind of clean energy production but also for demostrating with actions and not merely words that it my be possible to have developed a working device and going to the extend of selling his own house to bring the experiment to an sucessfull exit.Several people should have more respect for the worck being done and give the research team suficient time to prove their tesis with susessfull resuls instead of criticising maters in advance.I personally Wish the team succes because their exit means also exit and wellbeing for the rest of the planet. Thankyou very much.

    Well said Frank.
    Of interest is that Martin Fleischman and Stanley Pons and the many who followed them, flew for a lot more that 12 seconds but, unlike the Wrights, did so in an art populated by the large.

    I think the day of this test is as historically important as the day when James Watt presented the steam engine.

    The steam engine sparked the Industrial Revolution that changed the world.

    The Energy Catalyzer will spark the Energy Revolution that will change the world once again.

    Andrea Rossi is the James Watt of the 21th century.

    • http://www.nickelpower.org Bruce Fast

      I think the big day, the day that gets noticed by the world, will be when the 1mw plant is released. What is sure is that we are on the verge of a technological revolution at least as great as that of James Watt’s steam engine.

  • Renzo

    As you know Daniele Passerini will be present at the test, he will try to send live comments and (maybe) photos to his twitter account:

    Thanks, Frank, for the post.

    I really think that your best line is, “the first iteration was primitive and crude by modern standards, but even so, in each case a working model was created and introduced to the world” This must not be forgotten. People somehow believe that what comes out in November will be the e-cat of the future. It is only the first iteration. This thing will be, as with the other primary inventions mentioned, ripped out of Dr. Rossi’s hands. He may receive royalties for years, but the nature of e-cat implementation will be decided by millions of secondary inventors and engineers. What they come up with will be vastly greater than what is revealed in October and November.

    • Johan H

      I’m so eager to see the result. I hope they run it long enough this time. Anyway things seems to progress in the right direction.
