Rossi: Independent Expert to Take Measurements at QuarkX Presentation

I keep trying to figure out what we might expect at planned presentation of the QuarkX reactor which Andrea Rossi has been talking about on the Journal of Nuclear Physics. A new piece of information has come up today which would seem to be an important feature of the demonstration — having an independent expert on hand to take measurements of the QuarkX.

Earlier today on the JONP, Rossi was asked whether they had decided who would an independent person to take measurements during the QuarkX presentation, and Rossi replied ‘not yet’. I followed up with a question about this, because I wanted to be sure that he meant there would be an independent expert at the presentation:

Dear Andrea,

Do you plan to have an independent expert present at the presentation of the QuarkX who will be responsible for taking measurements and communicating them to the observers of the presentation?

Many thanks,

Frank Acland

Yes.
Warm Regards

Having a truly independent and qualified ‘referee’ at the presentation would certainly be important if the presentation is to be taken seriously, and not to be considered only a sales pitch with Rossi or his team running the show. The question then arises, who might be a good person to fill this role? What would their qualifications need to be in order for the test to have the maximum impact?

    Dear Andrea,

    Can we conclude from your answer to Brokeeper below, that it is possible that you will hold the event for the presentation of the QuarkX before you reach your 5 Sigma goal?

    Thank you — and Merry Christmas to you and your team!

    Andrea Rossi’s effort to develop and sell energy catalyzers is being aided by skeptics, fence sitters, the silent of uninformed press, etc. He is being allowed to work in relative obscurity. Competition from big companies and governments is minimized. When the efficacy of E-cats and quarks becomes well known, competitive efforts will explode upwards.
    Also, Rossi is giving himself more development time by holding back on a public demonstration of his intended product. In my opinion, it would be easy to show that a fueled quark would produce more energy than an unfueled quark (a dummy). Such a demonstration would have to rule out the possibilities of hidden energy sources such as hidden wires and batteries.

    Merry Christmas from Same and me to Frank and everyone on ECW. And an especial big thank you to our customers at Lookingforheat. 2017 needs to get better, and I know that like us, eveyone here will play their part in making it so. Go LENR!

    Dear Andrea,

    This may seem elementary but could you clarify as to what is required before the presentation of the QuarkX?
    1. Sigma5 reached?
    2. Modules required to continue operate 1 year (February) without refueling?
    3. Minimum COP achieved?
    4. Theory finalized?
    5. Other?
    Will production be ready soon afterwards?

    Wish you and your amazing team a Very Merry Christmas.
    Warm Regards,
    Brokeeper

    Brokeeper:
    1- not necessarily
    2- not necessarily
    3- yes
    4- no
    5- reliability: this module will be produced in million pieces
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.
