Scientific American Reports on LENR, Hot Fusion Speeds Up

There is quite a bit going on in the world of fusion. Scientific American reported on low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) sort of.

The venerable journal reprinted a Chemical & Engineering News story by Stephen K. Ritter. The story is surprising honest and sober containing neither boosterism, nor mindless hostility. The headline says it all “Cold Fusion Lives: Experiments Create Energy When None Should Exist.”

Ritter reports on Brilliant Light Power’s (BLP) experiments in New Jersey. Noting that Brilliant Light’s founder Randell L. Mills has succeeded in creating energy but cannot explain how he’s doing it. Ritter also points out that Mills has been hard at work since 1991, 25 years and still has not achieved his goal.

Celani Discussed LENR with United Nations

Cold fusion pioneer Francesco Celani gave a presentation on low energy nuclear reactions (LENR) to a United Nations Conference in Geneva.

Celani gave a talk on Renewable Energy: LENR Progresses and Cooperation Plans to the 25th Anniversary World Clean Energy Conference held between November 1 and November 4 at United Nations City, Geneva, a PowerPoint presentation obtained by the Martin Fleischman Memorial Project (MFMP) indicates. Celani discussed LENR work in Japan, China, India, the United States and Europe.

Global warming it’s worse than We Thought; Musk goes into the Roofing Business

The effects of climate change might be worse than we thought. There is some evidence that sea levels might be rising twice as fast we thought.

Scientists don’t know how much the seas are really rising because tide gauges were installed in the wrong places, a paper in the journal Geophysical Research claims. The current estimates are that seas are rising around 1.5 to 1.8 millimeters a year, enough to flood major cities like New York and London.

MIT Announces Hot Fusion Breakthrough

Researchers at MIT’s Plasma Science and Fusion Center have built a reactor capable of generating temperatures four times hotter than the center of the sun. They were able to do that by doubling the pressure at which plasma is pumped into the reactor, and generating 300 trillion fusion reactions a second, Silicon Republic’s Colm Gorey reported.

MIT Professor Dennis G. Whyte

This breaks a world record and brings the center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) closer to its goal of building a commercial hot fusion reactor. The Center’s Director Professor Dennis Whyte thinks such reactors might up and running and feeding electricity into the grid within 15 years.

CBC Reports on Cold Fusion and Andrea Rossi

A major North American media outlet; the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), has reported on cold fusion or low energy nuclear reaction (LENR). The piece by Torah Kachur also mentioned Andrea Rossi and e-cat.

This is the first time a major media outlet has reported on Rossi’s work in a while. Kachur at least is fair she refuses to engage in the childish accusations of fraud and simply points out that Rossi’s claims have not verified.

She also makes a statement that explains why physicists avoid LENR like the plague.

Is Bill Gates Financing LENR Research at Texas Tech

The Martin Fleischman Memorial Project is making the claim that Bill Gates may have donated to a low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) research effort at Texas Tech University, that started in 2014. Michael McKubre an advisor to Brillouin who has done LENR research for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) is also involved in the effort.

Rossi Partner Revealed, Ecat Time Line Announced

Andrea Rossi and his partners are actually advertising in the Yellow Pages for Doral, Florida. The Yellow Pages website for that city contains a listing for JM Products Inc. with a picture of Rossi and the Ecat.

It also lists the address of the location where ecat is being built and tested in Doral, which is a Miami suburb. The listing also contains a reference to Andrea-Rossi.com. JM Products Inc. is a for profit-corporation with a principal address of 7861 46TH STREET DORAL, FL 33166.

Some News from Around the World of LENR

There is quite a bit of big news going on in the world of low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) these days. Not all of which involves Andrea Rossi and his ecat.

Some big news includes: Airbus the giant European aircraft corporation has filed for a US Patent on something that sounds like LENR. Patent Application 2016/0228767 A1 is for “An environmentally friendly heat source suitable for the transportation sector.” The introduction mentions LENR and “an exothermic reaction in the form of a metal lattice supported hydrogen process.”

Who Owns the E-Cat Now?

Andrea Rossi might have other financial backers for his e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology that we might be unaware of.

The existence of such a backer seems to be revealed by Rossi’s lawsuit against his former partners at Industrial Heat LLC. E-cat World’s Frank Acland pointed out that one of the key witnesses in the case is JM Chemical Products Inc.; the Florida company involved in the e-cat tests that took place in Miami earlier this year.

Test of the Hot E-cat this could be the E-cat Quark X in action.

New LENR Experiments Revealed

Some pretty interesting new low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) experiments haven revealed to Andrea Rossi by a man named Tom Conover. Conover claims he is close to replicating the e-cat effect; which is supposedly the basis of Rossi’s technology, on Rossi’s blog.

“During the last 16 months I have built about 200 test reactors and used the Arduino computer as the control system to run tests on many of the test reactors that I constructed,” Conover wrote. Interestingly Conover claims to have achieved something similar to cold fusion.
