Silicon Republic on the E-Cat Test

Irish technology news site Silicon Republic has picked up on the E-Cat Test Report and seems to be intrigued. Like other reports we have seen in the media so far, there is a cautiously optimistic response:

“A device known as the E-Cat could potentially be the first real step to a cold fusion reactor after the discovery it can potentially have 1m times more energy than gasoline . . .

“The biggest challenge to Rossi and his claims that the E-Cat uses low energy nuclear reactions (LENR) is the fact that he is even claiming it to have come from LENR as the scientific community arguably see it akin to a claim that someone has achieved alchemy.”

The alchemy comparison is an understandable one — but alchemy is always considered an impossible dream. Maybe we have finally reached the goal that the alchemists of old were seeking for.

    I am only slightly horrified that the author is unaware that Transmutation is common place in this nuclear age.

    Yes indeed, LENR is absolutely as unlikely as Alchemy, both are alive and well.
    The principle objective of Alchemy was satisfied a quite a while ago.

    Sorry, kc, I appreciate your comments — just having a hard time keeping up sometimes.

    Gees, Frank, these are just shooting off the presses. Not as impressive as some of the other analysis, but a cautiously positive one.
