MFMP Testing Plans Disrupted by Equipment Failure

UPDATE – Feb 4th: The Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project’s testing plans for today have been disrupted by a major equipment failure: Here’s a post from the MFMP Facebook Page: “Move fast and break things. Unless you are breaking stuff, you are not moving fast enough.” — Mark Zukerberg AAARRRGGHH!!! We did not intend to takeRead more

Rossi: 30,000 Components Make up 1 MW E-Cat Plant

Andrea Rossi has been talking on the Journal of Nuclear Physics about the necessity to continually monitor and control the 1 MW Plant that he reports is currently under a long-term test at the site of a customer of Industrial Heat. Recently he described his job as being similar to a conductor of an orchestra.Read more

Rossi: Parkhomov’s Replication ‘a Good Thing for All’

I sent a comment to Andrea Rossi on the Journal of Nuclear Physics providing links to the recent data published by Alexander Parkhomov, and the video of his experiment, and asked him what his thoughts were regarding. Parkhomov’s apparent success in replicating the Rossi effect. This was Rossi’s response: Andrea Rossi January 29th, 2015 atRead more

The Parkhomov Effect Could Lead to Cold Fusion / LENR Breakout in 2015

As Alexander Parkhomov continues to speak and publish about his work on the Lugano E-Cat replication effort, it is becoming clear that his work is becoming the major focus of people following the LENR story. For a number of years we have been carefully watching news about Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat, reading his comments, and studyingRead more

Jack Cole Reports Excess Heat With New Experiment

A new post by Jack Cole on the LENR-Cold Fusion site reports on an apparently successful experiment to demonstrate excess heat from a reactor containing nickel powder, lithium hydroxide, aluminum powder, and iron oxide, with an apparent maximum gain so far of around 11 per cent. Jack has chosen this combination of materials to avoidRead more

Report from Cold Fusion 101 at MIT (Barry Simon)

Thanks very much to Barry Simon for this report from the recently held 2015 Cold Fusion 101 short course held at MIT . CF 101 was again inspiring. Peter Hagelstein is a CF theorist and Mitchell Swartz brings in his experimental data with the NANOR and the PHUSOR. Since 2012 when I first saw aRead more

Norwegian Technical and Scientific Association reports on LENR Seminar — Preparing for LENR Emergence

Thanks to AlainCo for posting the following on the LENR Forum. An article on the Norwegian website Tekna — published by the Technical and Scientific Association serving over 64,000 professional members — reports on the seminar held last November in Oslo to discuss the significance of LENR technology, and how it could affect Norway’s future.Read more

New Parkhomov Lecture on Jan 29th — “New experimental results with the analog high-temperature reactor Rossi”

Thanks to Sanjeev for finding the following announcement from the Russian website translated): Seminar on “Cold fusion and fireball” in the People’s Friendship University held on Thursday January 29, 2015 at 16:00 in the hall number 1 (7th floor) Corps of Engineers All-Russian physics seminar “Cold fusion and Fireballs” Next Seminar will be heldRead more

Industrial Heat Working ‘Harder Than You Can Imagine’ [Update: New Domestic E-Cat Design; Rossi has a Dream to Produce in Millions]

Here’s an interesting response to a question from a reader on the Journal of Nuclear Physics about when E-Cat technology will finally be usable — something I am sure that many readers here have often wondered. There’s not a definitive answer here, but maybe we get an idea of what is happening at Industrial HeatRead more

Alexander Parkhomov to Present at LENR Seminar at Russian Nuclear Institute VNIIAES on January 27th

Thanks to artefact and Alainco for finding the following on the Russian Proatom web site here (translated by Google): January 27, 2015 g, Tuesday, at 14-00, VNIIAES (Ferghana, 25) in the room. 614 will host a seminar: “The study of low-energy nuclear reactions – a new direction in science.” Everyone is welcome, Order badge:Read more

Rossi on Replication and Competition

It’s clear that Andrea Rossi is paying attention to what is going on with the attempts by some experimenters to replicate the effect. He has commented positively on the work of Dr. Alexander Parkhomov and seems to be pleased that the “Rossi effect” can be demonstrated to be real by others. I suppose that wouldRead more

Alexander Parkhomov Invites MFMP to Moscow

I think this is some good news for those of us who have been following the work of Dr. Alexander Parkhomov, and also the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project. Both have been working in their own way to find a way to at least approximate the results of the Lugano E-Cat test — Dr. Parkhomov seemingRead more

MFMP Design New Dog Bone Core

It’s been interesting watching the progress of the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project’s Project Dogbone, especially with the last two live experiments showing their live open science approach. We haven’t yet seen the hoped-for unambiguous demonstration of excess heat from the MFMP yet, but the experiments have been valuable in showing some things that don’t work,Read more
