Daniele Passerini Hints at More Parkhomov Replication Successes

Thanks to Sanjeev for linking to this post from Daniele Passerini at his 22passi.blogspot.com.

Here’s an excerpt from the post he published on Thursday March 12 (translated via Google):

“Just a few minutes ago …

Brian Ahern just Announced in our forum to start another attempt replication Parkhomov expected on sunday.
He is using another anche metalhydrate to store the hydrogen.

“But this is nothing, I think Rossi should start worrying seriously race replicas set in motion by Parkhomov (ed. Pronounce pàrchimof ).

“They’re brewing, even in the pipes, many other things: today I received fresh fresh good information on other replicas succeeded in … between us and Russia! A real bomb N news! 😉

“In short, Parkhomov is spreading the new verb cold fusion: Est Est Est!”

I think for now this should be placed in the rumor category, but it’s interesting that Passerini says he has heard something about ‘other replicas’ (plural). I think successful replications of Parkhomov would really spark additional interest in the Rossi effect. The more witnesses, the better.

    good points. but for now IH still knows a lot more than anyone else.

  • psi2u2

    Excellent news.

    One of Rossi’s JoNP BOARD OF ADVISERS:
    Prof. Michael Melich (DOD – USA)

    As to the U.S. Investigating LENR, Just a couple months ago I came across an article that strongly indicated that the U.S. Army started looking into it in 1962. Seems they were having electronic issues. Unexplained spontaneous heat production. They were actually aware of this phenomenon at least as early as the 50’s. Probably the large adaptation of electronics into their technology prompted this investigation.

    Tho Nano research and Nanotechnology is relatively new to most of the world, I have come across info that the U.S. Air force along with Skunkworks have been actively working with it since at least the mid 50’s. This research probably evolved around the SR-71 & it’s variants. All still highly classified.

    I believe Daniele Passerini has connections with 1 of the Lugano group.
    Correct me if I’m wrong, But I think he is friends with Levi.
    Rumor has it that the Lugano group(Levi) may be involved in a replication.
    Maybe it is this that Daniele is talking about…

    Some speculative rumor by OZ.
    Maybe the Lugano group are replicating in order to add to Rossi Patent appeal.

    • JDM

      Maybe they intentionally botched the Lugano report to capitalize on their own patent application plans?

    We have 4 6mm OD alumina tubes side by side. The outer two hold thermocouples. The inner two hold a blank and the the Ni-255 + NaAlH4

    Were calibrating the tube furnace right nw

  • Agaricus

    Thanks for the link, Ken. A very interesting post by Greg Goble, although the examples of military patents he cites are more indicative of a competitive effort between contractors than a centralised, ‘manhattan-style’ development effort. His central suggestion – that the US military began active investigation of cold fusion in 1989 and has spared no effort in heading others off using whatever means were available – seems very likely to be correct. Although he doesn’t present any hard evidence for this, any other pattern of behaviour on the part of the US military-industrial complex seems unlikely.

    For years U.S. cold fusion LENR research has been discredited. From the beginning the DoE has been putting up smoke screens and roadblocks, while at the same time the DoD and NASA have been quietly implementing deep LENR/cold fusion research, advanced LENR technology license agreements, and LENR energy applied engineering contracts.

    • Nigel Appleton

      If there is a lack of LENR research in the UK , that is much more likely to be because successive governments have exhibited all the scientific and technological vision of elderly jellyfish. Not corruption, or outside influence, just incompetence.

      As we have seen in the US and in Russia, there is nothing to stop private individuals and corporations mounting their own efforts independent of public funding. Parkhomov in particular seems to have made great progress with a total expenditure of about fourpence ha’penny

      • GreenWin

        Nigel, “elderly jellyfish” AND U.S. client status. If as Goble suggests (and seems plausible) the DOD smoke screen eliminated funding and burdened outside research with the “pathological science” moniker – it’s unlikely even private research would flourish.

        Since LENR effectively replaces both fossil and fission fuels – the nuke and fossil lobbies instructed foreign and domestic research to halt. We know for a fact DARPA has worked with Italian ENEA on D/Pd fusion. AND the ENEA confirmation of He4 in CF experiments was refused publication by 40+ science journals.

        With word of recent Ministry funding for Indian CF research – India leads the world in open government funding of LENR.

  • Sanjeev

    Thanks Marc. Waiting for the good news.

  • Jimr

    Rossi may be ahead of Parkhomov, but I still question if there are not other companies/Gov/Mil organizations ahead of Rossi, just not as vocal.

    • GreenWin

      Perhaps mil provided funding for Rossi’s 1MW system? After all, SPAWAR sent a rep to observe the 2011 test in Bologna. And guv’ment funding of patho/shills and JTRIG-type ops fits the pattern nicely.

      • Jimr

        I don’t know about that however the Gov could certainly encourage delaying any U S patents.

  • Nicholas Chandler-Yates

    Honestly, rossi need not worry, Parkhomov is where Rossi was 3-4 years ago.

  • Sanjeev

    Frank, thanks for posting this for all. It can be big, if true.
    Meanwhile, is it possible for you to email him and confirm if he really has some news or it is a trick of Google translation ? If the sentence has metaphors etc, google produces junk.

  • Mr. Moho
  • I guess he’s talking about Ugo Abundos approach. He’s also an italian and I expect they are in continous contact.
    Passerini reported often about Abundos experiments in the past.

    • artefact

      That came also into my mind.

  • Mr. Moho

    I think there’s an error in the pronunciation he provides for “Parkhomov”, listen here:

    • Andreas Moraitis

      In case that you mean „Aleksandra Parkhomova” at about 1 : 13 – that’s the genitive, which is correct in the given context.

      • Andreas Moraitis

        Ah, I see you meant the Italian – noticed it too late, apologies.

  • I hate such pieces of small information. It awakes the “anomalous curiosity effect” in me LOL

    I hope we will see open science from this replications at ICCF.

    • psi2u2

      the “anomalous curiosity effect”

      We need a wikipedia entry on that.

  • Gerard McEk

    yes, and we are working on it! 🙂
