Andrea Rossi Featured in Panorama — Major Italian Magazine (Vessela Nikolova)

I received the following today from Vessela Nikolova, author of the recent biography of Andrea Rossi.

With pleasure I can tell that, finally, a long and well-written article on Andrea Rossi (the fruit of a long interview with him), the E-Cat and my book has been published today on the main Italian magazine, “Panorama”, which is the equivalent of “Time” for USA. It seems the sign that something is moving…

You’ll find the article attached (at low-res for copyright reasons) and additional information in my post here:

    I submitted letters to the editors about the Switzerland test to a number of local newspapers in my area who usually print all or almost all of the letters I submit. None printed the letters. One editor wrote me that he did a web search and said that the LENR test was not given credibility of the web, and thus he did not print the letter. Maybe if they start selling Brillouin based water heaters in South Korea things will change. One company in South Korea does have the legal right to do that, and getting government permission to sell such products there may be easier than in the USA. The general public is still 99.9% ignorant on the subject, and the big newspapers don’t want to touch the subject. If one company breaks the taboo, then the taboo will be lifted for all of them.

    I would imagine there is much going on behind closed doors.
    The Greatest Folly I can Imagine would be for people here at ECW to think that many high powered entities are not aware of LENR, E-cat(IH/Rossi), Brillouin(Godes) Etc, Etc,,,

    NASA, DOD, DOE, NRL, EPRI, ENEA. How many letters of the alphabet do I need to point out of those who have been linked to LENR. Exxon, Shell, Mitsubishi, Toyota, Siemens, GE by association of the White house & Stephen Chu-former Energy Secretary & National Instruments are but a few of the Corporations with LENR history & connections. GE’s CEO was 1 of Obama’s economic advisers.

    In the past(archives) we have evidence that some politicians in the U.S.(Both Parties) are not just aware, but have proposed funding LENR Research to no avail. We’ve had people on ECW E-mail their representatives who received limited responses that, Yes They are aware & following the developments but nothing to disclose other then that.

    Al Gore mentioned it in passing. Godes in conversation with Stephen Chu. Do you think they were discussing Obama’s Golf scores. I think I saw where Elon Musk follows Robert Godes on Twitter. And do you think Bill Gates was blind sided by discussions of Cold Fusion. The Preponderance of Evidence is that MANY Entities are well aware of what is going on.

    So WHY? Why do they not discuss this in Public?
    It is quite Simple. The Pons & Fleischmann Fiasco. None want to be ridiculed or belittled for believing in fantasy. The most you will get out of them is, It’s an interesting phenomenon. At Worst, hasn’t that been debunked as junk Science.

    So, When will they speak out & say the things you want to hear. When Rossi or someone else have a pilot plant that is as Rossi says, consolidated & with irrefutable evidence it is real & it can be economically harnessed for productive use. Until Then, It’s an interesting phenomenon at best & IMO find it highly improbable that we will see much disclosure before then.

    As to suppression, This fear of ridicule allows a few people to suppress this technology. Most of this comes from the big physics projects such as ITER. And “Note” that there are those among there ranks who are not against LENR or it’s research, but are victims of this same fear. Even positive impressions of LENR are kept to themselves. To speak out could cost them their careers.

    Waiting for LENR to reach the marketplace is slow and irritating, and reminds me of the many frustrating years we all had to wait for the Vietnam War to come to an end. There is light at the end of the tunnel, and it is not a gorilla with a flashlight,…I hope.

    • georgehants

      Always be careful it is not a train coming.

      • GreenWin

        George, it could be the LENR train. In which case we “…don’t need no ticket, you just get on board.”

        • georgehants

          GreenWin, it may be like Hitler’s black train that will stop for nothing beyond his agenda, any innocent people or things like Cold Fusion will just be bulldozed out of the way, as has been happening for 25 years and continues now in the US and UK.
          Thank god for the honest, uncensored Russians.

    • Daniel Maris

      Or a dead end with a mirror .

  • georgehants

    So as Cold Fusion breaks free from it’s chains the US and UK corrupt and incompetent science establishment and press still says nothing.
    How proud we should feel of our countries.

    Rough translation from italian newspaper La Stampa,

    After Berlin, where he was received by the German Chancellor Angela Merkel, in Rome today Bill Gates met at the Foreign Ministry Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni. On both occasions, there was talk of a global agreement on vaccines and immunizations’ the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, “is among the largest donors in the world in the field of medical research in the fight against AIDS and malaria.

    That was followed by the visit of the founder of Microsoft to the ENEA centre of Frascati, one of the leading research laboratories on nuclear fusion, lasers and particle accelerators. Arrived yesterday afternoon at four-thirty, came out only three hours later. First heard a presentation of the activities of ENEA- the National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development -, then focused on cold fusion, frontier research in the field of nuclear fusion, pride ‘eyelet in the center of lazio.

    • Sanjeev

      A human translation would be nice.
      What does pride eyelet mean?
      Gates attended a presentation on cold fusion is itself a big news. He is totally into energy, but of a wrong kind, someone needs to inform him about the latest developments in CF asap.

      • pg

        sorry, it can loosely translate “flagship research of the center”

      • GreenWin

        Bill Gates has been made aware of cold fusion over the last three years. ENEA Frascati is the home of the famous Antonella DeNino’s “Report 41” – undeniable proof of He4 in cold fusion reactions – refused publication by 41 “scientific journals.”
        LENR powered desalination and water purification could cut infectious disease by 50%. Water born pathogens are responsible for half of all communicable disease.

      It is nice that Bill Gates is informed about cold fusion, but I hope he won’t get involved with his microsoft tactics: http://www.bbspot.com/news/2000/4/MS_Buys_Evil.html

    It’s like there’s been a sea change over the last couple of weeks in attitudes. I don’t think the Lugano report by itself can be responsible (not published yet in a peer reviewed journal). Maybe, but I think there must be influential forces working behind the scenes.

    Somebody or something important somewhere finally gave this technology credibility.

    • psi2u2

      Seems that way.

    • georgehants

      We are forgetting to give the Russians due credit for being the first peer reviewed premier journal to cover the TPIR.
      I hope this is not childish sour grapes.

      • http://lenrftw.net LENR G

        While I appreciate the importance of a notable Russian scientist’s open-mindedness, the paper was not published in the peer reviewed journal. This was more like a blog entry from one of their contributors.

        • georgehants

          LENR G, could you please explain the discrepancy between what you are saying and Mr. D. Travchenko.

          • http://lenrftw.net LENR G

            The ITPR was not peer reviewed or published by the Journal.

            I don’t consider it much more than a call to look closer by a single curious scientist. The significance of the journal allowing such an article on its web site is open to interpretation. But the “peer-reviewed” part of it is not in play here so we shouldn’t make a big deal out of that aspect IMO.

            • georgehants

              LENR G I like all good scientists do not care about what you consider, only Facts.
              Please answer the question I put to you above.

                Again? 🙂

                • georgehants

                  You have done nothing to answer my question but call Mr. D. Travchenko. a liar.
                  If you are not going to answer please just say so.

                • http://lenrftw.net LENR G

                  georgehants, I didn’t call anyone a liar. I explained my take on the significance of the article on the proatom.ru. I’m not interested in your bomb-throwing.

                • georgehants

                  You are calling Mr. D. Travchenko.a liar, without proof, saying it is not a peer reviewed journal.
                  I do not wish to spend more time on your usual false “scientific” reasoning.

    • Buck

      I disagree a little . . . it was noted within a few days of 10/8/14 that the ITPR2 was downloaded near 100k times. Further, that some were traced to an international sized bank, which acted as the basis for making a reasonable assumption: large players specifically searched out and gathered critical LENR information.

      If you include the neutral to positive critiques of the ITPR2, including Elforsk’s response, with the staggering results of ITPR2, you have sufficient information. If you are a money man/decision maker responsible for a large body of assets and capital, you adjust your view of investment ROI probabilities . . . and this ‘trickles’ into your decisions.

      Hypothetically, if there are 10,000 players making a market and the results of ITPR2 triggers a shift from 99.9% disbelief to 90% disbelief, then there is now about 1000 players, instead of 10, investing towards a Fossil Fuel to LENR transition.

      And, as they say “The Early Bird Catches the Worm”, none of the Players is really going to share the fact of LENR inevitability as they want to be the hero. And if they choose to share, it will only be with a limited group of close associates.

        It felt to me at least as if the skeptics had thrown enough doubts up about report that everybody would continue to proceed with caution — at least until the investigators had a chance to thoroughly answer the more serious concerns.

        But then it started going the other way with a flurry of positive movement.

        It’s like trying to figure out where the black holes are by measuring gravitational effects. Maybe ELFORSK started throwing their weight around with more authority. Or maybe some other big money got serious. I don’t know, but it feels like something significant happened, but we only see the effect on the satellites … while the gravitational centers remain obscured.

        • Buck

          I think we are perceiving the same thing and describing it differently.

          It seems to be like LENR . . . a many-body effect with widely scattered starting points, slowly building up to be far more noticeable. The actual individuals whose decisions and consequent behaviors triggered it all will likely remain unknown . . . as it is a herd effect.

          So, we continue to watch the herd.

    • Sanjeev

      Most likely there is no such somebody or something important anywhere, watching and controlling everything in the world. The world is a very chaotic place.

      Its simply the big names behind the ECat, Cherokee, Eleforsk, Royal Academy and the good reputation of the scientists who tested the ECat, that is influencing the opinions online. Perhaps the patents also add to its credibility (although they are a very indirect evidence that the inventors and companies are serious about it).

      There is also a lack of serious critique from the “science authorities” (MIT?), to negatively influence the views this time. Which makes some intelligent people scratch their heads and open their minds a bit – “may be this is real after all…” The itsy bitsy internet trolls do not count, they are not the “authority”.

      • http://lenrftw.net LENR G

        Feels like an inflection point. Maybe it came about as a natural progression but my gut feeling is that something significant happened and we are only seeing the effects and not the cause.

    • Pekka Janhunen

      The Lugano reactor parameters (1 month, 1200-1400 C, COP 3.5, cheap materials, simple structure, low mass) are commercially attractive. The device would be directly useful as an industrial heater. In addition, one could make electricity with it despite the lowish COP, because the temperature is so high. That would have at least niche applications, even if the necessary high-temp turbine would be too expensive for base electric power production. In TPR1 the running time was still too short for commercial applications.

      • Omega Z

        Pekka
        The measurements were conservative so the COP would be higher. The also didn’t engage the On/Off mode. And note that the Mouse only works during this mode. So higher COP is expected.

        That aside, not much can be accomplished with a single E-cat & like the LT 1Mw plant, there will be many issues to overcome when trying to sync 100 HT E-cats.

      • http://lenrftw.net LENR G

        Sure. The financial opportunities with LENR are off the charts. So perhaps some entity has completed its due diligence and set the wheels in motion. Something like that seems to have happened.
