    NASA has Applied for a LENR Patent The National Aeronautics and Space Administration or NASA the US government’s space agency has apparently filed a patent application for a low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) energy source. Joe Zawodny a Senior Research Scientist at the agency’s Langley Research Center made that revelation in a blog entry dated January 14. Zawodny is the scientist seen in what appears to be an official NASA video promoting what is described as “NASA’s method for Enhancement of Surface Plasmon Polaritrons to Initiate and Sustain LENR in Metal Hydride Solutions a clean nuclear energy for your...

Mark Iverson-ZeroPoint Wed, 25 Jan 2012 13:28:21 -0800 FYI: The presence of excess heat, and [near] lack of high-E particles/photons from LENR reactions would require coupling the large amount of E into the lattice vibrations (phonon modes) instead of into gammas (photons) or particles (neutrons and subsequently, dead grad-students). The article below looked into the energy-transfer (coupling) process in photosynthesis. They discovered that the coupling between electronic states and vibrational modes is greatly enhanced when they hit the light-harvesting complexes of algae with a 2-color (wavelength) photon spectroscopy.

    Andrea Rossi, an Italian man who claims to have invented a practical low-energy nuclear reaction device, lost an ideal opportunity to have his device tested and evaluated by a prestigious University for lack of funds. Last summer, Rossi said he had started a research contract with the University of Bologna to allow its researchers to study his “Energy Catalyzer.” But that never happened. Today, Dario Braga, director of scientific research at the University told New Energy Times that the University waited long enough. It terminated the contract because Rossi did not fulfill his agreement to make the first progress payment....

    On NASA’s Glenn Research Center’s Research page the following summary was published last last year: “ Tests conducted at NASA Glenn Research Center in 1989 and elsewhere consistently show evidence of anomalous heat during gaseous loading and unloading of deuterium into and out of bulk palladium. At one time called “cold fusion,” now called “low-energy nuclear reactions” (LENR), such effects are now published in peer-reviewed journals and are gaining attention and mainstream respectability. The instrumentation expertise of NASA GRC is applied to improve the diagnostics for investigating the anomalous heat in LENR. I find it interesting and rather puzzling that...

Rossi was asked by a reader of his blog how often and by whom the E-Cats would be recharged.

It will be a very simple operation.” (emphasis added) The big change here is that previously, Rossi has always said that...

    On March 23, 1989, the international scientific environment, and not only that, was deeply surprised because of the abrupt announcement by two Scientists, one of them at world-class level (M. Fleischmann), that they had detected measurable, and unexplainable, excess energy after prolonged electrolysis of Heavy Water using Palladium (Pd) rods as cathode. Such a phenomenon, that cannot be ascribed to usual chemistry or physics reactions, was improperly given the odd name “cold fusion”, remembering similarities with the “muon-catalysed fusion” predicted (1952) by A. Sacharov and measured (1956) by L. Alvarez (Nobel Laureates): both fusion were realised at room temperatures and...

Last week Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney mentioned cold fusion in an interview with the conservative publication the Washington Examiner link.  As Governor Romney stumbled and bumbled and actually showed a poor grasp of the matter, it was likely that he was briefed about the matter by one of his “handlers” and encouraged to mention it in the interview.  It is also likely that his associates have...

    The prospect of an energy source that is environmentally clean and free has also been considered a Utopian ideal, something that won't happen in real life. Andrea Rossi's Energy Catalyzer or E-Cat for short is now promising to bring about that Utopia as the dream of cheap energy could suddenly become real. The E-Cat is a cold fusion device that works fuses hydrogen atoms with nickel to transform it into copper. The resulting fusion reaction creates heat that will drive a turbine. The turbine would then generate electricity. Andrea Rossi and physicist Sergio Focardi have demonstrated the device last October...

    Sven Kullander On Rossi And eCat admin on November 23, 2011 — 6 Comments http://ecatnews.com/?p=1409 The following was posted on the Facebook Energy Catalyzer page. It comes from Hampus Ericsson who attended Sven Kullander’s Örebro talk today. Kullander has been a key player in gaining Rossi credibility in the past few months. Taken in the sweep, it appears to me that he believes in Rossi and his claims but reserves the right to be wrong until definitive independent tests drive the nail home. His comment about AR’s prickly response to anyone who distrusts him is interesting. This flies counter...

Rossi’s erstwhile partner, Defkalion Green Technologies recently announced that within the month they will be providing more details about their Hyperion products, which they say will be running on a different technology to Rossi’s energy catalyzer. Alexandros Xanthoulis, DGT’s CEO told the Greek publication Tovima last week that, “within the next...

    Defkalion Nearly Ready, NASA Files Patent, Piantelli Silent Posted on November 21, 2011 http://e-catsite.com/2011/11/21/defkalion-nearly-ready-nasa-files-patent-piantelli-silent/ Defkalion Green Technologies of Greece continues to publicly speak as if their version of Andrea Rossi’s e-Cat will soon ready for the market. For those new to the story, or just as a refresher, Defkalion was Andrea Rossi’s original business partner but there was a sudden and quite public break with Rossi in August. At that the time both sides claimed that the split was over a financial dispute but, accordingly to a news article in a Greek publication, Tovima, there was more to the...

Celani has requested that Rossi provide an E-Cat which he, Celani, would put through rigorous and carefully measured week long or more test. Following the testing a scientific report would immediately be written and published. Rossi politely declined the offer, stating, as he has...

    We Have Our Own eCat Says Defkalion November 20, 2011 | Author: admin An article in the Greek publication Tovima quotes Defkalion’s Alexander Xanthoulis as saying that the company has the eCat technology independent of Rossi and is almost ready to roll. They claim that their system is stable and that Rossi’s is not. According to their version of the split, that instability was at its centre and that AR did not demonstrate the eCat to the required specification – that of a stable run lasting at least 48 hours. Tovima Googlated: “We not only continue our program and we...

    Two European Web Sites Confirmed By Rossi as Legitimate Partners November 17, 2011 For a number of weeks now the website www.ecat.com has been posting videos filmed at the October 6th demonstration on Bologna, but the site’s relationship with Andrea Rossi has not been clear. Yesterday the site was updated significantly, and now appears to be a full service site dealing with E-Cat technology stating that it is “In Association with Andrea Rossi”. The site includes sections on science, business, patents and products, and on the front page is a form which can be used by potential customers to get...

    The Peak Oil Crisis: Transitioning to Cold Fusion By Tom Whipple Wednesday, November 16 2011 02:45:44 PM Events move quickly these days. Two weeks ago we were watching Bologna, Italy where an entrepreneur and a retired physics professor claimed to have discovered the Holy Grail of energy - cold fusion or as it is now known: Low Energy Nuclear Reactions. At the time, there was (and still is) widespread concern that the various demonstrations of an energy-producing devices were a scam as the developers, for commercial reasons, refused to give outsiders access to their inner workings . If you...

    The Renewable Energy Disaster ^ | Nov 2011 | Christopher Calder
    The Fusion Revolution When the first human animal figured out how to make fire at will, life on earth changed forever. The fictional character Sherlock Holmes once said that "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." Using that logic, I have come to the conclusion that fossil fuels will soon become obsolete, and human history will again be dramatically altered. A total switchover to fusion power will take decades, but basic economics tells us that fusion reactors will win in the marketplace over their more costly competitors. Imagine a clean new world...

    NI And The eCat Money Trail admin on November 11, 2011 — 68 Comments Peswiki’s scoop on the National Instruments relationship with Rossi is a left-field slam that forces you to think anew. I have a feeling that AR has more of the same in store. He is doing things his own way, sticking a finger to those who tie themselves in knots trying to figure the trick, the small army with big voices who attack anyone associated with the inventor as in-on-the-scam or incompetent. Poor NI do not know what they have let themselves in for. They will...
