Rossi could be Planning Demonstration of Unverified QuarkX Device

Andrea Rossi might be planning to hold a “public demonstration” of his Quark-X ecat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) device before his claims about it have been verified.

Back in October Rossi hinted that he was planning a demonstration of the Quark-X ecat variant for February. In a response to Brokeeper a correspondent to his Journal of Nuclear Physics blog Rossi stated that the demonstration could be held before it achieved Sigma 5. When an experiment achieves Sigma 5 it means the scientist is confident of the results.

In a Christmas Eve (December 24) post Brokeeper asked: “Sigma5 reached?”

Rossi Working with Military Engineer on Quark X

Andrea Rossi is working with a US military engineer in the testing of his latest version of the e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) device. Here is what Rossi in response to an inquiry from long time correspondent Franck Acland on December 8:

“No, he is an engineer from a military concern of the USA.” This statement appeared at Rossi’s Journal of Nuclear Physics blog.

Rossi did not identify the engineer or state which branch of the armed services the person is identified with. All we know that the engineer is a man who has something to do with the US military.

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.
