Under NDA With Auto Maker, Many Years Before E-Cat Car
- In the light of a recent discussion here about the future
of the automobile, I thought the following comment from Andrea
Rossi was quite interesting. About cars I am very convinced that
we will not see applications to cars before 10 years. A car
maker I had a meeting with and with whom I... (E-CatWorld;

- E-Cat Dreams
- A poster on the Journal of Nuclear Physics recently proposed a prospective calendar of events to Andrea Rossi.
"I have a dream. Winter 2013: E-Cat 1 MW in trial plant. Springtime 2013: public announcement about the investors and demo for the journalists. Summer 2013: start the productions plant. Autumn energetic boom. What do you think
about?" Rossi himself referred to the projected time table as "realistic".

Slow to Adopt Electric Cars - I have hoped for quite a
while that internal combustion-powered cars would start to be
replaced in a significant way by electric ones, but it seems
that for now at least that is not happening. I hadn't realized
just how poorly electric vehicles were performing until I looked
at the numbers presented in an... (E-CatWorld; December
- Defkalion - Hyperion
- Fusion at home!
(Original in Greek)
- A device that will provide unlimited energy with minimal energy cost is the planetary dream.
"The whole thing", explained to me Alexander Xanthoulis,
"was to break the Coulomb Barrier. To do that we had three ways:
One was to use high-power lasers, as in ITER's case, to reproduce the
Sun's conditions. It is an expensive method with minimum outcome. The
second way was to excite the two molecules to "overcome the
mountain" and meet each other. This is what Rossi attempted, but he
could not control the excited molecules. The third way was the one we
found: to "make the mountain disappear" for a very short
time." We succeeded by disguising protons in neutrons via
stimulation of nickel in Rydberg form. In this form the trajectory of
the electron is elongated elliptically, so that at its
"perihelion" the system appears as a neutron and not as "the
mountain in-between". Thereafter, we cause fusion by applying
magnetic fields and pressure". (ToVima;

- Greek team brings the energy revolution
- The most "green" power generation technology will have everyone home in a small box that will produce unlimited energy with minimum cost. The even better news is that this technology is Greek. The bad news is that the Greek government does not consider it appropriate to support the effort of researchers, so the company that developed the technology to go and collect the good news in Canada!

- Inventor: Brillouin LENR Device will generate 355,000 times as much energy as Gasoline
- Robert Godes the man behind Brillouin Energy's low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) process is making some very bold and interesting claims about his technology. The most dramatic of the claims is that his device can turn 1.024 milliliters of water into as much energy as is contained in 96 gallons of gasoline. Godes told the OilPrice blog that this equals 355,000 as much energy per volume as gasoline.

Subject: Re: update on FMP
Here a brief status with MFMP:
1) We have currently 2 cells (reactors) under test, one in Minnesota and one the France
2) We have 3 new cells being assembled right now with a new and better design
3) We have made a bad decision with our initial design by changing the type of glass used compared to what Celani is using.
We used fused quartz and he is using borosilicate. We recently changed this. Our European cell has the correct type of glass.
4) Using quart, made us discover a relation between the temperature measured outside our cell and the pressure inside
This caused problems to compare results between calibration and when the cell was running with Celani's wire
5) So far, this issue prevented us from concluding anything about excess heat
6) However, we did replicate the first part of the experiment concerning the loading of H2 hydrogen into the wire.
We did clearly measure an important drop of resistivity of Celani's constant wire when loading hydrogen into it.
Constantan resistivity should vary more than 2% or 3% with variation of temperature, it is a very stable and constant material.
We measured a change of resistivity up 25% at ambient temperature before and after loading the wire
7) We have almost finished calibration with our European cell, based on borosilicate (the correct glass type).
8) Our new design for the 3rd cell being assembled will be compatible with measurement in a calorimeter
9) We have regular calls and emails exchange with Celani
10) ST Microelectronics in Italy have confirmed 3rd party replication of Celani experiment.
They will published a report on Dec 15th.

Team Questions Some Celani Conclusions - In a post on the
Quantum Heat web site, the HUG team in Minnesota make some
observations about the Celani cell that are causing them to question
some of the measurements that Francesco Celani assumes to be excess

analysis of the relationship... (E-CatWorld; December 2, 2012)
Replication Project Finding Alternative Explanations
- Now three weeks in to the attempt to replicate Francesco
Celani's results, the news appears to have taken a negative
turn. After noticing an apparent rise in excess heat over time
with dropping hydrogen pressure in the cell, the group conducted
an analysis by charging the cell to 8 bars of hydrogen (75%) and

Open-Source LENR Project Making Progress Posting Results
- The big complaint leveled at many low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) researchers such as Andrea Rossi, Defakalion and Brillouin is that they
don't reveal much of their research. Instead these developers make claims that are hard or impossible to prove. The same cannot be said of the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project an open sourced effort to replicate Francesco
Celani's LENR reactor. (EnergyCatalyzer3; December 5, 2012)

Cold Fusion Story - SvT, Swedish television, announced that the program
Vδrld, translated World of Science, will on the 17th of
December take up the subject Cold fusion that some large energy companies
believe could replace nuclear power plants. Some enthusiasts say its unlimited
energy. Critics say it is a scam. And you see a small part of a video showing Andrea Rossi. This is
very good news, I think because this TV program is very serious and well balanced.
- Cold Fusion: Hoax, Dream
and the Future of Green Energy?
- Cold fusion has fought an uphill battle since its first public debut in 1988. It has been ridiculed,
"disproven," and like many other fascinating ideas it has been badly portrayed by a sub-par Keanu Reeves movie (Chain Reaction). The public has been fed a continuous stream of articles, interviews, and exposιs decrying cold fusion in the name of mainstream physics. But increasingly, governments and militaries around the world (including ours), academic institutions like MIT and Purdue, and companies like Mitsubishi, Shell, and Total have been supporting cold fusion research with millions of dollars in funding.

- Discover Magazine writes about Cold Fusion
- Discover Magazine has posted an article about Cold Fusion, titled in part
"Bring Back the Dream". This is a surprising development, since many online journals and magazines still steadfastly refuse to acknowledge the existence of cold fusion. Mark Anderson, author of the article written in October and published in the November issue of Discover, covers the Fleischman/Pons experiments of the late 1980s and the fallout afterward.

- Energy Glut and LENR are Redefining Our Future
- The Bakken Oil Field in the US and Canada is among the world's largest.
The future it seems just isn't what it used to be, instead the of the great energy shortage
that's been predicted for the last few years the world seems to be facing an energy glut.
We're facing that glut in traditional energy sources like oil and natural gas even before low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) comes in.
