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.

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.


US House Investigates LENR, Hyperloop Technology Demonstrated

The United States Congress is investigating the US Defense Department’s work on low energy nuclear reaction (LENR).

Popular Mechanics reported that the Committee on Armed Services of the House of Representatives (the lower chamber of Congress) has requested a briefing on the Pentagon’s LENR research. The briefing from the US Secretary of Defense is supposed to take place September 22, 2016. The Committee is apparently interested in work that the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA); and the US Navy reportedly did on LENR.

Industrial Heat: E-cat Does Not Work

Industrial Heat is now claiming that Ecat does not work. In a press release responding to Andrea Rossi’s lawsuit, the license for the inventor’s low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology did not produce the results claimed.

“Industrial Heat has worked for over three years to substantiate the results claimed by Mr. Rossi from the Ecat technology – all without success,” the release posted at PR Newswire claims. The company owned by Tom Darden’s Cherokee Partners also claims that Rossi breached its contracts.

Industrial Heat involved in LENR Research in China and Around the World

Industrial Heat LLC the company that owns the rights to Andrea Rossi’s e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology has signed a major deal to transfer technology to China.

HydroFusion reported that Industrial Heat backer and Cherokee Partners CEO Tom Darden had signed an agreement to partriciate in the Baishishan International Innovation Park of China-US Science and Technology this appears to be a technology park similar to the Research Triangle in North Carolina where Industrial Heat is based.

Billionaires dump Oil Stocks, Ecat test could be over

Some of the biggest names in investment and finance are dumping oil and other fossil fuel stocks as quickly as they can.

Legendary American oilman T. Boone Pickens sold all of his oil stocks just four days after telling investors that oil prices had hit bottom at $26 a barrel on Monday February 1, Zero Hedge reported.  Oil was trading at around $30 a barrel on February 19, 2016.

Rossi Reveals Ecat X, Gates and other Billionaires Open Checkbooks for Clean Energy

Andrea Rossi has created a new design for his E-cat low energy nuclear reaction technology (LENR) that he calls the E-Cat X. The details of E-cat X are not available but Rossi has revealed it will be modular and possibly smaller and cheaper to manufacture.

Like his earlier E-Cat designs, Rossi wants to make the X a module so several small E-cats can be assembled into a large power unit. This means it could be used to power something as small as your house or assembled into a large scale power unit. Note: this does not sound that different from Rossi’s earlier designs.

Brillouin Brings LENR to US Capitol

Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) came to Washington DC and the home of the world’s most powerful legislative body – the United States Congress last week. Representatives of Brillouin Energy Corporation held a conference on their LENR technology on Capitol Hill on November 9, 2015.

Attendees at the conference reportedly included members of the US Congress. Unfortunately the legislators that attended the event were not identified in a Brillouin press release that’s making the rounds. The presence of members of Congress is important because in the United States it is Congress and not the President that sets the federal budget.

E-Cat Lab Moving to Raleigh Suburb

We now know the general location where research into Andrea Rossi’s e-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology will be conducted in the United States. The company which purchased the rights to e-cat for $11 million last year, Industrial Heat LLC is moving to a 20,000 square foot laboratory space in Cary, North Carolina – a suburb of Raleigh, The Triangle Business Journal reported.

Downtown Cary North Carolina the e-cat could soon be there.

The first public demonstrations of e-cat in the United States could be held at the space, The Journal reported. Industrial Heat hopes to make its first big, proven breakthrough in Cary.

Major British Investment Fund could Put Money into LENR

A major British investment fund headed by a prestigious player in the City of London could be putting money into Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) research including possibly Andrea Rossi’s e-cat technology.

Woodford Investment Management has joined Cherokee Investment Partners in investing in LENR research, Cherokee’s CEO and Founder Tom Darden revealed in an interview with Fortune. Darden did not reveal the extent of Woodford’s investment or say exactly what LENR projects it was funding.
