‘Discrete Breathers’ in LENR (New Paper)

Thanks to Andreas Moraitis for referencing a new paper published on Arxiv.org written by Vladimir Dubinko of the NSC Kharkov Institute of Physics and Technology,in Ukraine. The paper proposes a theoretical explanation for what is occurring in low energy nuclear reactions — and Dubinko introduces a term (new to me) of ‘discrete breathers’ (DBs) toRead more

Rossi Names Some Competitors: Shell, Mitsubishi, MIT, Volvo, ABB, NASA

On the Journal of Nuclear Physics today Andrea Rossi was asked about what he thought the effects of his work might be on competitors — and what kinds of progress might be made in the field LENR field by others. Rossi responded: Ville Kanninen: It is impossible to answer to your question, or, at least,Read more

Simeon Hein on Cold Fusion Being Real (Video)

Thanks to Pelgrim108 for bringing my attention to this newly produced video by Simeon Hein about cold fusion. I’ve actually never heard of Simeon Hein before, but he is apparently quiet well known in the field of what some might call ‘fringe’ science. He covers topics like crop circles, remote viewing, UFOs, the ‘Fractal Multiverse’,Read more

Rossi Prepares for 1MW Plant Visits

While we wait for the all-important 3rd party report to be published, there’s apparently a parallel track taking place which should help provide important information about the E-Cat to the world. I’m referring to the preparation by Andrea Rossi and Industrial heat for making a 1 MW plant available for observation and inspection by ‘allowedRead more

Veteran Energy Securities Analyst Sees LENR as Disruptive Energy Source

There’s a very interesting article posted on this week’s Energy Musings web site by G. Allen Brooks which deals with the investment implications of LENR. Mr. Brooks is managing editor of the web site and has been involved in the energy and investment industries as a securities analyst, consultant in the energy field, and anRead more

Chief Science Editor of Swedish Radio Defends E-Cat Programme

Ulrika Björkstén, chief science editor for Sveriges Radio has written an article in Ny Teknik which defends and explains the stance taken in the report recently aired about Andrea Rossi and the E-Cat. While Björkstén admits that there is no proof that the E-Cat does not work, and that scientists should have ‘open and inquisitive’Read more

Rossi on His Anxiety Over E-Cat Test Results

Here’s a comment on the Journal of Nuclear Physics by Andrea Rossi that I found interesting — in response to a question by Giuliano Bettini who asked Rossi about the source of his anxiety regarding the upcoming tests. Giuliano asked Rossi whether he was nervous because a) he was afraid that negative test results wouldRead more

Rossi: ‘Please be Patient’

Since we are now in June, I decided I would take a chance on the Journal of Nuclear Physics and ask Andrea Rossi if he was still expecting the third party report to be published in the second or third week of June, as he had recently mentioned he had been told would be theRead more

Rossi Preparing E-Cat Plant with New Motto: In Mercato Veritas (In the Market is Truth)

A new tone has been struck this month by Andrea Rossi who has started to discuss that he is totally focused on preparing a 1 MW E-Cat plant — apparently getting it ready for public revelation. He has also adopted a new motto: In Mercato Veritas, which I translate to mean ‘In the Market isRead more

An Onion-Cat?

I’m wondering if Andrea Rossi may have been dropping some hints about a new E-Cat configuration in some recent posts on the Journal of Nuclear Physics. Recently Steven Karels, a frequent poster on the JONP, wrote: You referred to the “Mouse and Cat” design for eCat control. The Mouse provides stability, runs part of theRead more
