There was a time when Andrea Rossi was the only person on the earth who knew the secrets of the E-Cat. He talked about having documents containing those secrets deposited with his attorneys that could be opened in the event of his untimely demise to keep his knowledge from disappearing.
Things have changed completely now, it seems. Rossi says he has sold his IP to the new American partner and now he is talking about transmitting his knowledge to a new generation of researchers. I asked him on the Journal of Nuclear Physics if, in addition to doing R & D on the E-Cat, if his chief scientist duties involved any kind of training program.
Rossi responded: “Yes, I am teaching all I can to the persons that in the next future will have to make better than I did. I am discovering that I like teaching.”
I’m glad to hear it. The more widely the information is disseminated the better, I think. It’s likely that with more people involved, new insights will be gathered and greater refinement of the technology can take place. They say that good leaders are always preparing their own replacements, and maybe that was part of the agreement when Rossi signed on with the new partner.
