Rossi Positive about Meeting on ‘Theoretical Issues’

On the Journal of Nuclear Physics today Andrea Rossi commented in response to a question that a meeting he said would take place regarding theoretical issues ‘has been made’, and that he is still confident in his theory — but that ‘now it has to be passed through the process of validation and R&D that we have in course.’

I followed up with another question and Rossi responded:

Will the R&D you are currently carrying out confirm or disprove the validity of your theory?

Frank Acland:
As I said, any specific answer before the end of this validation and R&D period should be premature and vain. The meeting regarding theoretical issues has been positive, though. But I hope I will not pass through the experience of a guy that jumps from the 30th floor of a house hoping to fly, arrives at the height of the third floor and says:” so far, so good”.

Better wait for the conclusion of the validation process, then we will give all the necessary information, good or bad as it may be.
Warm Regards,

He’s certainly playing it safe, which I think is wise, but he does seem optimistic in this post.

    That’s a classic Rossi jest. Only someone with ultimate confidence, I believe, can afford to say things like that.

    The advent of the STM patent adds data indicating that this effect can be made to happen at a very small scale. That is, if the NASA theory – surface plasmon polaritons – turns out to be part of the actual effect, there should be a good understanding of what’s happening. DGT also takes this approach, creating surface plasmons in the nuclear active areas. As Ing Rossi uses the same basic materials, metal lattice loaded with H, this avenue seems promising.

    ‘Theoretical Issues’

    It is good to hear that Andrea Rossi is confident of his Theory involving his Energy Reactors and there is a Validation process ongoing to test that Theory. With all the experience Rossi has, designing, building and testing his E-Cats, he may have sufficient data to point to a theoretical theory of his process. Perhaps we will soon learn how the E-Cats generate all that HEAT! Will the theory confirm a “cold fusion” process? Will it be a Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR)? jdh
