The new tests with the energy catalyzer, which seems to generate heat by an unknown nuclear reaction, took place in Bologna on 19 and 28 April, 2011.
As in previous tests the objective was to measure the net energy that the device generates as accurately as possible. The results of the two tests showed a developed net power of between 2.3 and 2.6 kilowatts – of the order of a large stove plate. Input electric power was in the order of 300 watts. As previously, the power output was calculated from the amount of water boiled into steam, and thus depends on the water flow. At the two new tests the water flow was set at a slightly lower rate than in previous tests. The device used was the smaller version of the energy catalyzer, which was first shown at March 29, 2011 Test.
The tests lasted for two and three hours respectively and the total net energy developed was calculated to be 5.6 and 6.9 kWh (see report for April 19 and April 28). The rest here: Nyteknik
Quotes: “Welcome Worry-Free Nuclear Power: Rossi’s Energy Catalyzer”. Traditional nuclear energy uses dangerous radioactive materials as fuel and produces hazardous waste. The solution is Cold Fusion. No Rads – No Waste – No Problems!
By Hank Mills : Pure Energy Systems News
In recent days the dangers associated with conventional fission-based nuclear technology have been made clear to everyone. The world has been watching Japan’s efforts to minimize the radiation released, as multiple reactors damaged by the recent earthquake experience partial meltdowns and explosions. As we watch the news, our understanding of these reactors grow as we are introduced to terms such as “containment vessel” and “cooling pool.”
However, the world also needs to understand that there is an emerging nuclear energy technology that offers a completely safe and economically attractive alternative. This is the Cold Fusion “E-Cat” (Energy Catalyzer) technology of Italian engineer and inventor Andrea Rossi. The principles of safety of their technology is typical of what is found in the field of cold fusion, or Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) in general.” End of the quotes. The rest here: PESN
My personal concern is the safety, there are still many questions unanswered. What if the reaction does creates a thermal runaway? I bet you run But if its safe… Then its a Major breakthrough. The cost of many things would drop. Just to give an idea, with a standard 120 volt source (housing) draining less then 3 Amps (its 3 100W bulbs) you could heat you whole house in Canadian winter.
On the safety of this system: Peswiki
Quotes: “Are byproducts being created?
The two isotopes 62Ni and 64Ni are apparently being transmuted into non-radioactive isotopes of copper and trace amounts of other stable and non radioactive elements such as zinc.
Does this system produce any radioactivity?
Yes, but it is all contained inside of the reactor vessel which is shielded by two centimeters of lead. However, the radiation serves a very important purpose. It interacts with the materials that compose the reactor (steel, lead, and boron) to generate heat that warms water, boils water, or turns water into steam.
Does this system produce any radioactive waste?
No radioactive materials are put into the reactor vessel. In addition, only hours after the system is turned off the reactor can be opened and no radiation can be detected. Unlike traditional nuclear power, no uranium, plutonium, or other radioactive elements are ever input into the system; and no radioactive waste is produced.
What would happen in a catastrophe?
If a catastrophe struck, the reactor may break, and the contents may spill, but since a reduction of hydrogen pressure would immediately cease the reaction, the device would turn off immediately. Also, since there is no radioactive elements put into the device and no nuclear waste produced in the device, no radioactive materials would be put into the environment.”
A very interesting page for Q&A. But I personally need more datas and different testing to believe its safe, time and experiment will tell, but the potential is outstanding, its a 800% gain!

Quotes: “They don’t always use the term “cold fusion” to describe the process, but often refer to it as an amplifier or catalyzer process.”
Focardi states: “Experimentally, we obtained copper; and we believe that its appearance is due to the fusion of atomic nuclei of nickel and hydrogen, the ingredients that feed our reactor. Since hydrogen and nickel ‘weigh’ with less, copper must have released a lot of energy, since ‘nothing is created or destroyed.’ Indeed, the ‘Missing Mass’ has been transformed into energy, which we have measured: it is in the order of a few kilowatts, two hundred times the energy that was the beginning of the reaction.”
They also claim to be going into production, with the first units expected to ship by the second half of October of this year, with mass production commencing by the end of 2011. The first units will be used to build a one megawatt plant in Greece. This one megawatt plant will power a factory that will produce 300,000 ten-kilowatt units a year.” End of the quotes.
And this from Peswiki: Peswiki
How it Works:
The Energy Catalyzer works by placing nano to micro sized particles of nickel powder in a reactor along with pressurized hydrogen gas and special undisclosed (for proprietary reasons) catalysts. When the contents of the reactor is heated (using a series of resistors in the reactor) to approximately 400 to 500 degrees Celsius, nuclear reactions start taking place. The strength of the reaction can be changed by varying the pressure of the hydrogen in the reactor. The output energy can be up to 400 times the input energy.
No precious metals or radioactive substances is placed in the reactor. After the reactor is turned off the reactor can be opened and no radiation can be detected. The process transmutes nickel into copper and trace amounts of other elements such as zinc. (from Steven: the law of transformation always free energy).
The nickel has also apparently gone through one or more special processes. A few of these special processes are speculated to be:
1) Baking and cleaning to remove oxidation that could “clog” up the reactive sites on the nickel particles.
2) Bathed in acid or another compound to make the particles more porous so they can absorb more hydrogen.
3) Embedded in a membrane or ceramic structure.
4) Loaded with hydrogen via electrolysis or some other method.
Doing a lot of digging into Rossi’s Journal of Nuclear Physics blog shows that scientists are posting and linking speculation that “hydrinos” (of Blacklight Power fame) or shrunken hydrogen atoms may be involved in this cold fusion and process and their formation may be the source of most of the energy released.

Inherent Safety of Rossi’s Cold Fusion
Even in a situation such as the one that recently impacted Japan, Rossi’s system would remain safe. In the event a facility utilizing his reactors was hit by an earthquake or natural disaster, it is possible one or more 10 kW modules could suffer damage. Such damage to a conventional nuclear power plant could result in a very serious release of radiation that could present a human health hazard; and the damaged cooling system could result in runaway meltdown. Due to the fact that Rossi’s system does not use radioactive materials and does not produce any radioactive waste, any possible leak of reactor contents would not represent a radiological risk. There could potentially be a very brief spike of radioactivity for a moment if the vessel cracked or failed, but the venting of the hydrogen gas would immediately end the nuclear reactions taking place and any production of radioactivity. A technician could immediately start sweeping up any nickel powder on the floor without risking radiation exposure.
The safety benefits of Rossi’s technology are clear. However, the potential economic benefits of the technology is equally impressive. As previously mentioned, the fuel used by his device is cheap, but also very little is used. One hundred grams of nickel powder can power a 10 kW unit for a minimum of six months. Do to the fact nickel costs less than twenty dollars a pound (nano-nickel in bulk may cost slightly more) the fuel cost to run these reactors is insignificant. Basically, with one of these systems you only need to spend a few dollars on fuel to produce an amount of energy that would normally cost a few thousand dollars.
In addition to being safe and economical the E-Cat technology has the potential to be mobile and portable. Producing enough energy to power a full-scale modern car or truck is not possible with solar or wind power. Also, it would be too dangerous to utilize conventional nuclear fission technology in a vehicle even if a reactor could be scaled down to that size. A single car wreck could pollute a whole neighborhood or city with radioactive particles. That would not be a danger if the E-Cat technology was used. Also, the potential power density of this technology is more than high enough to power a vehicle.
Perhaps the most fun thing about a cold fusion powered vehicle might be the ability to go for months or years without re-fueling. Your range could be literally tens of thousands of miles or more! When you were not driving your car perhaps the same module could double as an electric generator to power your home or sell back to the electric company. If the power to weight ratio can be made high enough, perhaps this technology could be used in aviation as well. There might be a race to see how many times someone can circumnavigate the globe non-stop without fueling… on nickel and hydrogen! But given how far they could go without stopping, keeping track of them might become more boring than watching bowling.
Ready to Replace Conventional Nuclear Power
Unlike some other potential alternative energy technologies, the E-Cat cold fusion technology is commercial ready. It is beyond the prototype stage and is in process of being implemented. A one megawatt plant producing thermal energy is planned to open in Greece the second half of October later this year. This technology is not a “pie in the sky” possibility, but a reality that due to a lack of mainstream media coverage is not being broadly noticed or anticipated.
If in the coming years, existing conventional nuclear plants are shutdown, or if plans for new plants are canceled, the E-Cat could easily take up the slack and then some. For the cost of one conventional nuclear power plant producing a certain quantity of output, a facility powered by Rossi’s cold fusion reactors could produce many times the power. It would also do so safely without the risk of a meltdown or leak of radioactivity. There would be no special storage areas needed for spent fuel, and local residents could live their lives without fear of accidents endangering their families.
With all of the recent debate on nuclear energy, Andrea Rossi’s technology deserves to be noticed and recognized as a potential game changing energy source. A clean and safe source of energy could give concerned individuals hope for a future world without the potential of nuclear disasters.
It is apparent that scientists at the University of Bologna in Italy have noticed the potential of the E-Cat due to the recent successful tests of the system performed there, and the one year research program on the technology that recently began. They have taken this technology seriously and are vigorously racing to fully understand the mechanisms that allow it to work. Hopefully, this curiosity will spread and combat the remaining (but dwindling) skepticism around this technology some people still express.

I have personally no more doubt about the validity of the invention. I even cried at the thought of the potential it contains to change the world for the better.

Another physicist joining the many voices in favor of the Rossi’s E-Cat.
“Why the announced test at Uppsala should show if Rossi’s E-Cat claims are valid”
Being a physicist I consider the announced test of Andrea Rossis E-Cat at Uppsala as one of the most important of all the series of tests we have been seen so far. This for the following reason:
In the announced test for the first time there will be made use of a heat exchanger which transfers the energy of the steam output into a secondary circuit for heating water without boiling it. At least that is how I understood it from Rossi’s description. This means that a certain amount of water per time unit will pass through the heat exchanger with a given entrance temperature T1 and a larger exit temperature T2.
It is then very simple to compute the amount of energy which has been necessary to obtain this temperature difference at a given water flow through the exchanger (in fact a simple multiplication of three numbers). In addition, this energy measured will give an “approximation from below” to the true energy output of the E-Cat. This is because a heat exchanger, due to the laws of thermodynamics (as well as to non-perfect insulation) will never reach 100% efficiency.
However, with this method we will be sure that at least the measured energy in the secondary circuit has indeed be released by the E-Cat. This was not so easy to state using the old method of temperature measurement of the direct steam output as it has been done so far. This is due to a difficulty of distinguishing between wet and dry steam, wet steam still containing some water in it. This remaining water has not been vaporized, i.e. the vaporization energy necessary to transfer water to steam (phase change!) has never been applied to it. Hence the thus computed energy output can easily be overestimated. If however, one transfers all the energy of the steam (dry or wet) via the heat exchanger, and uses it for heating water without boiling it things become very clear.
Of course the upcoming test has to be run for a sufficient amount of time to exclude a chemical process inside the E-Cat which could account for the observed energy output. As far as I understood the present E-Cat is considerably larger than the previous one. For the original one Prof. Levi (University of Bologna) excluded a combustion process after a test run of 18 hours. From the images shown I would guess that the inside volume now is at least three times the one before and thus the test should be extended for at least 60 hours or even more to exclude common energy sources inside.
However if all this is observed and any type of “hidden energy transfer” from the outside into the E-Cat (e.g. based on micro waves etc.) can be excluded then I would consider this type of test as a very rigorous and would be extremely pleased seeing a positive result.
Dr. Johannes Hagel, Physicist
From Rossi’s perspective, it wouldn’t be the first time a test is done respecting all technical aspects of measurement and presentation. Many improvement are still possible and the perfectionism of this invention still seem quite at its birth. Are we human, ready for such a thing in our hand? I like to think about me, when my first son came, I wasn’t ready. He made me ready, life took care of it. I only hope it’ll be the same for us all if really “free energy” comes at hand. Because ultimately, it’ll take quite an awareness and spiritual growth necessary to deal with its power. A member was noticing the synchronicity of the end of the pyramid of evolution from the olmec people (28th October 2011) with Rossi’s official world presentation (last week of October). If free energy enters in the consciousness of the human race globally at this point in time, we could call it a mark.
I am not very surprise to see a total silence from the official medias about the Rossi’s invention. More, the people in general doesn’t understand the technology, aren’t able to foresee the implication for the future of the planet. On one hand, it is a good thing, but on the other hand, sooner or later, it’ll have to hit the public awareness. Here is a short letter written from the peswiki sites: pesn.com/2011/09/14/9501913_Rossis_One_M…s_A_New_E-Cat_Model/
Wake Up Planet Earth
The citizens, media networks, and governments of the world need to WAKE UP to the fact that cold fusion technology is about to revolutionize human civilization. It is sad to see that the irrational skepticism of many have resulted in this technology obtaining almost no mainstream media attention. The silence has been deafening. In a way this is a good thing, because when the technology does break through the barrier the skeptics desperately are trying to keep up, the power of the alternative media will become obvious. Simply put, the alternative media recognized and reported on this technology before 99% of the mainstream media, who obsess about much less credible things such as who the frontrunners are in the U.S. Presidential race, ignoring the giant, Ron Paul, who is garnering huge public approval for his long-proven stance on freedom, getting us out of entangling wars, ending the fed, etc. Mainstream media is a propaganda whore of the corrupt establishment. What else should we expect than silence on the most exciting energy development available? This is becoming more and more blatant and will help expose their lap-dog place in history for the powers that be that have been purposely destroying our civilization.
While the mainstream media sleeps, PESN will continue reporting about the E-Cat technology.
A chief scientist from NASA has made a comment on the e-cat:
‘A Chief NASA scientist, Dennis Bushnell has came out in support of Andrea Rossi’s E-Cat technology, but denies any type of nuclear fusion is taking place, saying it is probably beta decay per the Widom Larson Theory.

Hello cheap energy, hello brave new world
Over on Network World where I’ve had a gig as a columnist for about 18 years, my Backspin column I wrote this week about a power generation system called E-Cat that is to be tested on October 28th.
If you’ve missed the recent brouhaha over the E-Cat (which stands for Energy Catalyzer), you’re missing out on a three ring circus over a technology that will either change everything or change nothing because what is promised is, in theory, power too cheap to be worth metering. The E-Cat is a simple device albeit with functioning that defies all known explanations.
In summary, the E-Cat is a cold fusion (CF) device (the inventor, Andrea Rossi, prefers to term the technology “Low Energy Nuclear Reaction” (which appears to be the same thing as CF but a less contentious phrasing). I’ll refer you to my Network World column for a more long-winded explanation of the background and theories about the device.
The problem with Rossi’s system is that it is too good to be true. It is claimed that the E-Cat only requires some initial heating to start after which the reaction is self-sustaining. The reaction uses a secret catalyst to transform nickel into copper with heat being produced which can be used to make steam, drive a Stirling engine, or be used for whatever you please.
The test in Bologna on the October 28th was successful. It marks the beginning of a new way to build, travel, heat, work, produce, consume, etc… And it happens right at the end of the Olmec pyramid of evolution! If anyone is looking for what happened on the 28th of October 2011; Cold fusion is possible. It is THAT big. I just can’t believe how it passed incognito in a great majority of alternative media. We got the medias we deserve I guess. On the test itself: pesn.com/2011/10/28/9501940_1_MW_E-Cat_Test_Successful/
Since the latest test in Bologna, Italy, Andrea Rossi received several orders for new 1 megawatts powerplants from unnamed clients. www.e-catworld.com/2011/10/rossi-second-…ial-growth-of-sales/
Moreover, now FoxNews has covered the invention with Rossi’s interview. Even if the journalist remains quite skeptical, there is nothing in this news that indicates a hoax. As Rossi stated many times: he won’t loose energy arguing with skeptics, instead, he will let the product talks for itself. www.foxnews.com/scitech/2011/11/02/andre…n-cold-fusion-plant/
It seems to me that Rossi’s invention will progressivly enter into our society through the market. Starting with medium powerplant (1 megawatts), but we can imagine the crescendo of the demand would bring massive production for countries captive with expensive, polluting and non-flexible powerplants like nuclear powerplant or thermical powerplant. Germany and Japan are two countries certainly interested in this new avenue.
Another major news talks about the E-Cat; MSNBC by Natalie Wolchover
Italian cold fusion machine passes another test
Italian physicist and inventor Andrea Rossi has conducted a public demonstration of his “cold fusion” machine, the E-Cat, at the University of Bologna, showing that a small amount of input energy drives an unexplained reaction between atoms of hydrogen and nickel that leads to a large outpouring of energy, more than 10 times what was put in.
The first seemingly successful cold fusion experiment was reported two decades ago, but the process has forever been met with heavy skepticism. It’s a seemingly impossible process in which two types of atoms, typically a light element and a heavier metal, seem to fuse together, releasing pure heat that can be converted into electricity. The process is an attractive energy solution for two reasons: Unlike in nuclear fission, the reaction doesn’t give off dangerous radiation. Unlike the fusion processes that take place in the sun, cold fusion doesn’t require extremely high temperatures.
Rossi rushing up to the market with the e-cat is quite understandable, for many reasons. Maybe it’s the only real option for him to keep it evolving. But I don’t like it.
I would support marketing already the e-cat, but only after public testing on a long period of time, with many different prototypes. I would think about at the very least 5 years of testing, if it is really a nuclear fusion. But for Rossi, the money has to come from private sources. That is where I don’t like it. Unfortunately, the governments of the world have once more failed to answer to a real issue, too busy working for private power. This kind of ‘breakthrough’ has to be studied and tested properly before going wide into the hands of anyone with money.
It is not wise. What if…
It falls into the option of hoping it won’t go wrong. But unfortunately, the world contains a fair amount of rich people with no true compassion for Life. Their care is ego. I prefer not to think too much about it, but instead really see all the potential for goodness this invention may offer.
I think about all these simple inventions not possible to market because of high cost of energy. Or the desalination of the oceans, which could be used to supply water for drink, sanitary use, or to water the crops, for paddy fields. The propulsion of all the +200K megacargo carrier on the ocean which pollutes as much as 10000 billions of small cars, yes you have read it well, 10000 billions of small cars. It causes an increase in the acidification of the ocean (pH goes down), which is something globally very dangerous for Life on Earth considering that the phytoplankton are at the beginning of the food chain. And the very end (FINALLY!) of the nearly exclusive use of fossil energy to produce energy. Now, we would have a new option, hopefully clean, secure, stable and controllable at any given time. Lets hope this, It’s the least we can do.
Here are two articles giving interesting information on the e-cat development. Rossi had recently a partnership with one of his client, a military agency, who already have 1 mega-watts plant in hands and ordered 12 more.
Andrea Rossi: Electricity from E-Cat Possible Within a Year
November 23, 2011
In the recent interview that Andrea Rossi gave on the Tom and Doug radio show, Andrea Rossi revealed that on November 11th he had made an important breakthrough with regards to the production of electrical power from the energy catalyzer.
Rossi said in the interview that production of electricity from the E-Cat has always been for him a major target and that “it will take, until the last week I said a couple of years, but today I can say one year because today, just today, (I don’t know because today is 11.11.11) we have resolved a very big problem which has made very short the time remaining to be able to produce also electric power, beside heat and cool with these apparatuses.”
Rossi provided no details about the nature of the breakthrough, but being able to make electricity efficiently would add a whole new dimension of usefulness of his invention, and would bring ever closer the dream that many people have of being able to have a complete power plant in ones home — heat, cooling, and electrical power from one unit. The revolutionary nature of such a technology is difficult to overstate, and if this could be achieved within a year, we could be looking at a very different world in the near future.
Andrea Rossi Working with Domenico Fioravanti on Electrical Power from E-Cat
November 25, 2011
Andrea Rossi has recently reported making a significant breakthrough in producing electricity from the E-Cat, something that had been a challenge for him for a long time. Rossi mentioned this breakthrough in the Tom and Doug show interview earlier this month, but didn’t go into any detail on the nature of it. Yesterday a reader on the JONP site asked for more information about the discovery, and Rossi responded with this comment:
“Actually, we have found a breakthrough with a primary fluid with wich the reactors remain stable when we make steam at 450 Celsius. We are working on it together with our Customer. I am learning very much from him, and in particular I am learning from the person who made the test of the plant on October 28th. This person, now retired, is an engineer who used to test for military concerns thermic plants and missiles, so that he has a tremendous experience in thermodynamics. Here is to learn really and, honestly, when it turns to learn I am pretty fast. This collaboration is accelerating the development of the technological declinations.”
We see Rossi discussing again the need for stability within the reactors, and apparently now an appropriate fluid has been found to maintain stability, and to allow for the production of steam at a high enough temperature for efficient electrical production. Earlier this year Rossi was seeking solutions to create electricity at 200 Celcius, so there’s apparently been a lot of progress made.
The retired engineer Rossi mentions is Domenico Fioravanti, the consultant that was sent by Rossi’s military customer to test the first 1 MW plant in Bologna. Now it looks like the two are working together to find ways to make these 1 MW plants (the military entity has ordered 12 more) produce electricity and steam, and Rossi is evidently learning a great deal from Fioravanti, and he seems to be very happy about the collaboration.
Rossi is not shy about seeking help from any source that is willing to offer it, and his teachableness could turn out to be one of his greatest strengths when it comes to improving his invention.
As long as they’re testing the e-cat for its stability, safety and efficiency, I rest assured.
Idea of a cold fusion plant in Massachusetts explored
Italian investor meets with scientists, state officials to pitch controversial technology
Italian scientist Andrea Rossi, who claims to have invented the world’s first cold fusion machine, visited Massachusetts last week, meeting with a state senator and several scientists to explore the possibility of manufacturing cold fusion reactors in the state.
Despite heavy skepticism in the scientific community about his work, Rossi came stateside at the invitation of Massachusetts Senate minority leader Bruce Tarr, a Republican who has been active in pursuing alternative energy legislation. “My thought process was pretty simple: If it works, I want this technology to be developed and manufactured in Massachusetts,” Tarr told The Boston Globe.

Since its official public presentation on the 28th of October 2011, Rossi has made a few other working 1MW power-plant and has now many more contract on the table. Here are some hotspots news which came up lately about the e-cat progression in the world.

In the past, people got killed for that kind of invention. Today, they get ignored; that’s a tremendous improvement! Nevertheless, cold fusion is going to be part of our future and it will cause drastic change in our society, probably the most life changing invention since the control over fire.
I just read two articles relating Nasa and Rossi, quite interesting.
In this one, it indicates that it might not be cold fusion, but Low energy nuclear reaction LENR, weak interaction, beta decay that release such an intense energy. But the gain in energy is recognized That is what matters the most and… no nuclear waste nor radioactivity. andrearossiecat.com/andrea-rossi/chief-n…n-andrea-rossi-e-cat
Chief NASA Scientist Bushnell Believes in Andrea Rossi E-Cat, by admin on December 27, 2011
In a letter written by Albert Opdenaker of the DOE Fusion Energy Sciences Energy department, it has been revealed that there has been a change of opinion in the US Department of Energy regarding the Andrea Rossi E-Cat.
It should be noted that in September of this year, Opdenaker’s assistant answered an email asking the department’s stand on the Low Energy Nuclear Reaction. The response was posted by Ruby Carat at the Cold Fusion Now website and it showed the department’s skepticism about the Andrea Rossi E-Cat
However, a more recent letter from Albert Opdenaker is made public recently at the E-Catsite and Cold Fusion Now that shows us his change in opinion after a talk with chief NASA scientist Denis Bushnell who believes in the Andrea Rossi E-Cat, excerpts of which are as follows:
MY CHANGE OF MIND WAS A DIRECT RESULT OF TALKING WITH DR. DENNIS BUSHNELL, THE CHIEF SCIENTIST FOR NASA LANGLEY WHO HAS ASSURED ME THAT OVER 100 EXPERIMENTS WORLDWIDE INDICATE THAT LENR IS REAL, CAPABLE OF PRODUCING ENERGY MUCH GREATER THAT CHEMICAL REACTIONS, WITH MINIMAL RADIATION, THAT THEORIES INDICATE THAT WHAT IS HAPPENING IS WEAK INTERACTIONS, BETA DECAY AND NOT FUSION OF ANY KIND. FRANKLY, IT DOES NOT SEEM TO ME TO MATTER WHAT WE CALL IT IF IT WORKS AND BUSHNELL SAYS IT DOES WORK. HE BELIEVES THAT THE ROSSI DEMONSTRATIONS SUGGEST THAT LENR MAY PRODUCE “USEFUL” QUANTITIES OF HEAT, AND WHAT IS NEEDED IS 10-20 YEARS OF WORK TO ENGINEER ROSSI’S IDEAS FOR PERFORMANCE.HOWEVER, IF ROSSI HAS ALREADY SOLD MORE THAN 10 OF THE 1 MW PLANTS AS I AM READING ON THE NET, AND IT TURNS OUT THAT THE PLANTS WORK, AND ROSSI’S CUSTOMERS ARE HAPPY WITH THEM, I DO NOT THINK THAT THE DOE NEEDS TO GET INTO THE MIX TO CONVINCE PEOPLE TO BUY A PRODUCT THAT OTHERS HAVE ALREADY BOUGHT AND ARE WILDLY HAPPY WITH. IT IS JUST A MATTER OF A SHORT WAIT TO SEE WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN.
Revealing the secret customer of the 28th october public presentation is Nasa. I am perplex with this one, it’s a bad good news
NASA Is Andrea Rossi E-cat Secret Customer, by admin on December 14, 2011
For several weeks now, The US Space Agency has been rumored as the first secret customer of the controversial Andrea Rossi E-cat. Previous reports stated that NASA sent unidentified representatives during the private demonstration of Rossi’s Low Energy Nuclear Reaction on October 28 in Italy to primarily observe and study if the machine really works as it claimed. Some important information surfaced: (1) NASA made negotiations with the Italian inventor about their plan to buy the technology. However, it did not put in place because Rossi refused to share his secrets; and (2) NASA representatives were not impressed of the said test because Rossi has completely changed everything from the test plan to the system that was not part of their agreement. They were not given the chance to see what was inside the reactor and how much it weighed.
Whether NASA is really Andrea Rossi E-cat mysterious customer or not, it is already a public knowledge that the American space agency is apparently interested in LENR. As a matter of fact, NASA conducted an extensive study and research solely for LENR/ Cold Fusion. Probably this is the reason why the organization wanted to know about Rossi’s secrets. But this does not necessarily mean that NASA believes in Rossi’s invention. It is clear, however, that they are interested in the development of LENR.
Dr. Mark D. Nispel posted on his blog “Nebraska Engineer” that NASA is serious in developing a cold fusion device. LENR, according to NASA, is a possible alternative to produce cheap, clean and safe source of energy that could eventually save the whole mankind. NASA did not make any confirmation that the organization as a whole believes in Andrea Rossi E-cat. There were NASA scientists who claimed that cold fusion/LENR is a possible source of energy but they did not say that Rossi’s technology works.
