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.

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.
Tesla Gigafactory in Production
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.
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.
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.
Study Confirms Elite Science Bias
An interesting study published by The National Bureau Standards could show us why the scientific community is so reluctant to embrace new ideas like Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR).
In Does Science Advance One Funeral at a Time? Researchers discovered that when a big name scientist or researcher dies, his or her field suddenly sees an eight percent increase in new papers and research, Vox reported. Researchers Pierre Azoulay, Christian Fons-Rosen and Joshua S. Graff Zivin also found that the rock star scientists’ colleagues and protégées see a decline in influence as scientific journals publish fewer of their papers after the icon’s death.
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.
Rossi claims “Well Known Companies” Have Placed Orders for E-cat
It is easy to see why a lot of people do not take Andrea Rossi very seriously. He has made yet another round of sensational yet unsubstantiated claims about his E-cat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) technology.
In an interview with Frank Acland that popped up on e-catworld.com on October 25, 2015, Rossi said “yes” when Acland asked: “Have you had any orders so far from well-known companies?”
Unfortunately Acland forgot to ask the next logical question which is: “can you identify those companies?” Since Acland did not ask the question, the response above is absolutely meaningless. Even if Rossi refused to identify the companies that would at least be a response. It would also be news.
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.
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.
