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.

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 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.

Court Date Set for Rossi vs Industrial Heat

A trial date for Andrea Rossi’s lawsuit against Tom Darden and Industrial Heat has been set. An order; filed in US District Court in Miami, states that a jury trial in the case of Rossi vs. Darden et. All is set to begin on June 26, 2017 – about a year from now.

Judge Cecilla M. Altonaga is scheduled to preside over the case in Miami Division court, Pacer Monitor reported, PacerMonitor reported. Discovery presentation of evidence in the case is scheduled to end by February 27, 2017.

Will Musk Provide Model for E-cat Manufacturing

Andrea Rossi is doing two things this summer. He is plunging ahead with plans to manufacture his ecat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) device; and continuing his legal war with former partner Industrial Heat LLC.

“The decision has been taken. We will have two poles of manufacturing; one in the USA and one in Sweden,” Rossi wrote on his blog on June 17, 2016. Sweden refers to the factory; Rossi and Hydrofusion are negotiating to buy in that country. The location of the US factory is unknown at this time.


Tesla Gigafactory in Production

Production of batteries has begun at Elon Musk’s gigantic Gigafactory in Northern Nevada. Bloomberg reported that the $5 billion factory is already churning out Powerwall home batteries.

The factory will turn nickel, cobalt, aluminum, lithium and silicon into the batteries for the half million cars; Musk claims Tesla will build by 2018, just two years from now. Currently the factory is only making battery packs for home and commercial use.
