        • Rossi on the Military Plant - Someone today asked Andrea Rossi about how the 1 MW plant that was delivered to some military entity was doing. It's a good question, since apparently this military customer is so far, according to Rossi, the only one he has with a working E-Cat. Here are the questions and answers. 1. We wonder if, after delivery, your customer has remained in touch with you: if requested technical informations, expressed his satisfaction or his complaints. A. Yes... (E-CatWorld; March 14, 2013)

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.
