Many people have been wondering about how the upcoming tests on the high temperature E-Cats are being performed, and now Andrea Rossi has stated in unambiguous language that an outside entity is carrying out the tests. On the Journal of Nuclear Physics today, Bernie Koppenhofer asked:
There has been a lot of speculation on this site and other LENR sites about whether the statistics about your new 600c reactor will be validated/Confirmed by your customer or third party. Will it be?
Andrea Rossi replied:
Yes, the validation of the high temperature reactors is made by third parties.
One of the main criticisms that more skeptical observers of Andrea Rossi’s past public demonstrations was that he was in control of them all, and that no fully independent evaluation of his technology has yet been made. I think that point of view is debatable, since the October 28th demonstration was done under the direction of engineer Domenico Fioravanti who accepted the validity of the test in behalf of his secret customer. Nevertheless, this upcoming test, if carried out in a professional manner by a competent and qualified independent party, might be a real opportunity for people to come to some firm conclusions about the reality of Rossi’s technology.
Rossi has said that the results of the testing will be published “within weeks” on the Journal of Nuclear Physics.
