Brillouin LENR Device Receives Third-Party Verification from Leading Research Institute

Researchers at SRI International;  the facility formerly known as the Stanford Research Institute, have successfully replicated part of Brillouin Energy Corporation’s Hydrogen Hot Tube low energy nuclear reactor.

SRI researchers were able to generate what they call over unity amounts of heat from low energy nuclear reactions (LENR) generated by the latest version of the Hydrogen Hot Tube, a Brillouin press release states. This apparently amounts to third-party verification of at least part of Brillouin’s technology.

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.

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.
